From Sydney to Brittany – Nathalie & Mahesh’s delicious French wedding
For Nathalie and Mahesh, a couple from Sydney, Australia, there is one thing that they wouldn’t compromise in their intimate wedding – FOOD for the reception!
Yes, this beautiful couple are huge foodies who fell in love with French food and with France itself the first time they visited the country. Although Nathalie is a German, from Bavaria, she decided in her heart to get married in a gorgeous French chateau while savouring authentic cuisines during her first visit here in France.
They were very clear in requesting that they didn’t want to have a traditional sit-down dinner though. Instead, they had a garden party after the ceremony where festival-type food was served. On the menu were sweet and savoury crepes, currywurst brought especially from Germany and traditional French pastries. In the evening the party moves into the converted stable house where the culinary delights continued in the form of a seafood bar, cheese and charcuterie station and a large selection of canapes.
As for the wedding ceremony, we had set up a beautiful area outside but it started to rain about 30 minutes before it was due to start. But although the weather was against us that day, we were prepared. We had agreed on a Plan B the day before so the ceremony ended up taking place inside the castle, which was also very beautiful but a little small for the amount of people. Nevertheless, everyone was still happy and the ceremony was very beautiful!
One of the best parts of the Nathalie and Mahesh’s wedding was a special video for the couple made by the guests who couldn’t make it to the wedding. It was a parody about Nathalie & Mahesh’s food obsession (one of the name reasons why their friends love them!), but it’s also full of good wishes and love for the newlyweds.
First things first: If you’re planning a destinatio
n wedding, you need Yana from Peach Perfect Weddings!
Without Yana, we would not have been able to pull off such an amazing 4-day wedding celebratio
n in Brittany, France, from Sydney, Australia.
Yana is switched-o
n, smart and super organised. Every little detail, every invoice and anything else that was relevant was documented through an online applicatio n we all shared access to. We had no idea that planning a wedding was going to be so much work, but Yana made everything simple. We didn’t feel stressed during the year we spent planning and we were able to enjoy our day without worrying about anything, because we knew Yana had it all under control. Yana has a wealth of experience as to what works for a wedding and what doesn’t – whenever our ideas for the celebratio ns were not workable, Yana was able to come up with an alternativ e solution that still stayed true to our vision.
From start to finish, Yana and her team were profession
al, helpful, understand ing and always on top of everything . Dealing with suppliers was challengin g at times to say the least but we had no reason to be worried as we knew Yana had it all under control. Yana was available whenever we needed her and always happy to go the extra mile. She even travelled to our venue and returned with amazing video footage to help us picture the surroundin gs and plan our setup since we couldn’t make it.
We loved working with Yana, she’s a beautiful person and fantastic to work with. She has exceeded our expectatio
ns, hiring her was the best decision we could have made.
