Visit of OUI magazine, the premiere wedding magazine in France : the whole éditorial team of OUI magazine came to visit the Chateau de Varennes and their venue expert Delphine wrote a two page article which is featured below (sorry it is in French !).
Delphine wanted to stress what makes us different from the numerous wedding factory chateaux that populate France. Sometimes we welcome external wedding planners (which is great so we can just hand the keys and admire the result !) but on other occasions, our on site team of wedding planners have to assist couples into getting their own wedding. The assistance can be very light (like sharing our contact list and managing just the day of coordination) or it can be very extensive from the choice of the stationery to 3D sketching of the whole event. For couples who want a simple experience, there may be standard packages but we do not impose the same vendors every week because we believe that each couple has different taste (and budget) so we let them decide what is best for them. We can assist them by giving advice based on our extensive experience curve (no bride can beat the 100 wedding milestone…) but in the end the couple will always make the final decision.
This article is a good occasion to greet the many vendons that we have met during our last seasons. We would like to congratulate our pastry chef Muriel Arcos (her website is here : cakesinthecity) who impressed the whole journalist team during a special cupcake class and also by offering a gorgeous Gatsby inspired sweet . We would also like to extend our thanks to David Brenot who offered a photo shooting with Harcourt studio lights and also the illustrations for the article.
A big up to Clementine (graphic designer for la Plume à facettes) who designed the stationery suite for our Gatsby themed dinner with turquoise and gold glitters (I love the movie with Leo Di Caprio and when I sourced exquisite turquoise candles by Sia, I thought it would be an original combo that would change from the classical black & white color scheme which is often related to the rolling twenties style). Pictures to follow in another blog post…
