Château Pape Clément Wedding

On today’s real wedding blog, we meet an international couple who planned a Château Pape Clément wedding from miles away. They live in Hong Kong but both have close family ties to France. They only had 9 months to plan their dream destination wedding in Bordeaux. So they worked with Gervier Emmanuelle of M Creation Events on all the details. They married in the stunning Notre Dame church in Bordeaux with close family and friends. The reception venue really spoke for itself – it’s elegance and grandeur were only complimented by the fairy lights and surrounding gardens.  Let’s hear it all from the planner herself…

super sweet international couple“We were hired for A to Z planning about nine months before the big day. We started to plan everything remotely and then I met the couple 3 months before the wedding during their 4 days stay in France. That is when we did all of the site visits and tastings together.

After that, we organized a visit of the Château and a degustation. At night, they made a pre-wedding dinner with close guests at the Grand Hotel of Bordeaux. So, the morning of the big day was relaxed and spent slowly getting ready. They had an adorable first look on the terrace of the castle, where they laughed and soaked in the moment together.

Girl power! During the cocktail, an oyster farmer came from the Arcachon basin to organize a tasting with local products. He shared it all in front of the Prelate Pavilion, a unique and prestigious Eiffel-style canopy. After the dinner, a night bar was provided by No more penguins. They created a tailor-made cocktail menu according to the couple’s tastes. The decoration was very refined, the couple choose vintage tableware from options that really captured their unique style.
