Welcome to another wonderful week FWS readers. Can you believe we are entering into February (the month of LOVE) already? To end this month we are finishing off with some lovely weddings including today’s luxury Château D’Esclimont nuptials!
Our elegant bride and groom Victoria and Artem enlisted the help of talented wedding planner and FWS vendor CTH Events Paris who are ready and waiting to assist you in planning your fairy tale French wedding.
We just adore Victoria’s sequin embellished Zuhair Murad gown with a detachable skirt for the evening! Enjoy this fairy tale Château D’Esclimont wedding…
“Artem and Victoria met via Victoria’s girlfriend. They became friends and fell in love very quickly. After 4 years it was so natural and they decided to marry. Artem offered Victoria to have a different wedding, romantic and found a wedding planner in Paris, CTH Events Paris. Then Victoria contacted us in June 2015. We prepared the proposal with 10 castles regarding Victoria & Artem’s criteria, 4 of them were chosen for a visit.”
“But Artem secretly contacted Inga before and asked to organise the wedding proposal because actually, Artem never made a proposal and they came to choose the castle for their wedding and he wanted to make it extra special. Therefore Inga organised a beautiful marriage proposal on the Bir Hakeim bridge with the white Rolls Royce, red roses and the sound of a violin.”
“Victoria had the appointment at Zuhair Murad, Inga proposed to meet the photographer who worked that day on the bridge Bir Hakeim. Inga sent a Rolls Royce for Victoria & Artem, when they arrived at the bridge Artem offers her red roses, a ring and the violin played. Victoria turned to Inga and asked…what is he doing? Is he proposing? Many emotions were there: music, champagne, photography and we brought our lovely couple to enjoy the dinner with the glittering Eiffel Tower.”
“We had 3 months to organise the wedding, during our visits the couple choose the Château D’Esclimont, a beautiful Renaissance castle with towers, turrets, moat and 60 hectares of forest. A welcome dinner was held the day before. Dinner with red colours, the tables were decorated with red roses, red ‘Pommes d’amour’ at the entrance to the red carpet and the path formed by the red candles awaiting guests for the evening. Inga made a casino, so guests were entertained around roulette and black jack before dancing.”
“For their wedding day Victoria was determined to have a ceremony outside and we were very lucky to have mild weather in the middle of October. The ceremony was beautiful in front of the castle under a covered majestic arch of roses (we have used 9 shades of pink roses) and hydrangeas under the violin sounds and cello. Yellow, red, green trees around the place of ceremony, the autumn in France is very beautiful and in my opinion it’s the best time to come to France.”
“The beautiful bride was able to make good choices, she was passionate about design and may be a future stylist and designer, she has a good eye and she knew what she wanted from her wedding. The concept of marriage was chic, elegant, golden, tables and reception hall were decorated in strict harmony with the concept of marriage. Inga bought, rented and did all the decorations herself and arranged the wedding in the true French style.”
“For the wedding cake we invited a Russian patisserie who came express to make this cake according to the drawings. Each level had a different taste and cream. Wedding cake decoration respected the colours of the wedding.”
“Different activities were planned for the wedding, jazz band, cabaret entertainment, stilt walkers, ballerinas (for which the costumes were designed especially for this wedding) and fireworks. Hundreds of candles were also installed on the red carpet.”
“All guests could enjoy and experience French ‘art de vivre’, French food and culture. They spent an unforgettable, unique moment, experienced a happy, cheerful, luxurious and elegant marriage, which remains in their memories. It was a real princess wedding in a French Château, every girl has to have this fairy tale.”
