The bride and groom’s preparations take place in a handsome provincial town Apt, at La Villa Augustine, a property built in 1912 oozing luxury and ancient-world character of lost generations.

During this time, bulbous flower vases are placed on either side of the path running through the lavender fields and a picnic of champagne and macaroons is prepared against the backdrop of the sunset which bathes the fields in the splendour of evening light.

The celebrant begins the symbolic handfasting ceremony, a ritual dating back to the time of the ancient Celts to express a lifetime of commitment and love between groom and bride, a promise being made after each full ribbon circle around the unified hands of Liza and Eugene….”These are the hands that will help hold your family together as one”.

Most unforgettably, the vows are exchanged in the form of two distinct time capsule letters, written down and placed together in a special box, to be kept secret from each other for a whole year. At this time they will read the heartfelt words of their loved one, a special reminder of their beautiful wedding, marriage and future together.
