Throughout all the trauma, separation and upheaval of 2020, how many times have you heard people say, “I just want to be able to hug my family and friends”?

Hugs and emotions are some of the main ingredients to a successful wedding – whether you’re the newlyweds, a guest, or a supplier, this is what we all see at couples’ Big Days, regardless of the size. And it is this that got the French wedding planning team at Marry Me in France thinking.

“We started to think how we can help make the dream of a destination wedding come true for more couples,” says founder and Director Beth Stretton. “We’ve had couples reach out to us saying they want to lavish all of their attention on their family and very close friends, and not have a huge wedding. The Coronavirus pandemic has changed how some view special events like a wedding, and a lot of people who perhaps can’t afford a huge wedding are asking if instead of waiting and saving, can they still have their dream day, but for a fraction of the price?”

Marry Me in France is one of the longest-running wedding planning services in South-West France. But launching its sister business, aimed at couples who want a smaller and more intimate wedding makes perfect sense.

“We’re responding to the Coronavirus restrictions and an increase in searches from couples looking for smaller and more intimate weddings,” explains Beth. “Although Marry Me in France tends to plan larger weddings, Perfect Little Wedding does exactly what it says on the tin – our tagline is Marvellous Mini Big Days in France.”

And with packages starting from as little as just under £5,000, Perfect Little Wedding means that those who thought they could never afford a wedding in France, suddenly can. There are two packages for the venues, which include fairy-tale chateaux and chocolate box cottages, meaning couples can choose the package that best reflects them and their needs.

The lovebirds can choose from the two packages – Beautifully Simple or Eat, Drink and Be Married, although these can be customised and added to, ensuring the newlyweds-to-be have their dream day. “We talked through our ideas at length with a lot of our suppliers, including photographers, caterers and florists and they loved the idea, too. And so Perfect Little Wedding was born!” explains Beth.

With more than 15 seasons under their belts, Marry Me in France is amongst the most experienced events planners in its field, with an exceptional reputation for quality of service. Founder Beth began planning weddings in 2005 after her own wedding in France when she realised there was nobody available to help with the arrangements. Having previously organized a large conference for international delegates at Cambridge University, she decided to utilise these skills and set up what has become one of the world’s most respected wedding planning agencies.

Couples can be assured that they can expect to work with the same high standard of event management (a more thorough planning service can be added on) that you would expect from such an experienced team – and the same goes for the recommended suppliers, as well as the beautiful venues that have been vetted by the team and meet the very high standards of the Marry Me in France team. It’s a win-win!

Beth continues, “Destination weddings can seem so out of reach for so many couples. We hope that this will help those with a smaller budget or those who want a smaller affair realise that you can still have your dream wedding for a fraction of the price.”
