I’m so happy to share with you the wonderful and fun wedding of Jil and Jul. This wedding has it all: some really fun newly weds and guests, a beautiful decoration (I LOVE the contrast of the multicolor flowers with those white tables), entertainment, and the key ingredient – some really stunning pictures! Photography by Benjamin Le Du out of France.
The wedding took place on August 22, 2014 in Brittany, France (Querrien and Pont Aven to be precise).
We’ve been together for 11 years and Julien proposed to me during a trip to the Rodrigues Island we made last year to celebrate our 10 years together. We started the day with some snorkeling in a turquoise water; the skipper stopped us on a little desert island called the cat Island. We were walking around when Julien made his proposal: He took a photo of us two, but had previously placed the engagement ring beside my neck; then when I looked at what the picture had given I saw it! I say Yes, of course. We were both shaking like a leaf… It was perfect!
Name one thing you regret…
The bride: That I didn’t serve the oignon soup!… long story. Do not hesitate to delegate, but take some time before the wedding to organize everything and be able to give every piece of information needed. This helps a lot on the D day (and the D-1 day).
The groom: That I didn’t dance a lot. I spent a lot of time outside with the non-dancers. We had a very intimate wedding, we could afford to spend some time with each and everyone of our guests, but still, we can’t be everywhere at the same time, and it’s normal.
And one thing that makes you happy or proud.
We aren’t very organised people, and planning this wedding was a challenge. We are very proud we did all the decoration ourselves, the aperitive, the bouqet, the favours, the invitations and save the date. We also worked the whole year on the playlists – no DJ but a computer and 2 good speakers!
Second, our surprise dance at the city hall!!
But one thing’s for sure, if we were to do it again, we wouldn’t change a thing!
