FAQs

What is the typical process when planning a wedding with you?

Step 1: The best way to contact us is by sending an enquiry or setting up a free consultation call with your dedicated French wedding planner. This way you can let us know how you envision your wedding in France and what your requests are in terms of date, group size and type of ceremony.

Step 2: Choose the wedding location of your dreams in France and pick the services that you want to include in our package.

Step 3: Should you wish to work with us for your wedding, we will send you our booking agreement and ask you to secure our availability with a deposit (min. €1,000 or 25% of the total package, whichever of the two is higher). After receiving your deposit, we will secure the vendors for your wedding.

Step 4: In case you’ve chosen to have a symbolic ceremony in France, we will put you in contact with your celebrant. You will schedule a call together to discuss about your ceremony and to get to know each other. Your bespoke ceremony will then be written by him (or her) following the wording of your choice.

Step 5: In our ‘Next Steps’ guideline (which we will send you as soon as we receive your deposit) it’s easily explained how you can show us what is your taste for flowers, music and cake and the styling in general.

Step 6: Around two weeks before your big day, we will double-check every small detail with the wedding vendors and will send you a detailed timeline for the day, together with all the contact details that you’ll need.

Step 7: On your wedding day, do not worry about anything. Enjoy your celebrations and the romance of the moment! If need us for anything, we will be available anytime to help you.

Is there some legal paperwork involved in a symbolic ceremony?

Absolutely not! A symbolic ceremony in France doesn’t require any legal paperwork to be sort out or any bureaucracy process to fulfill. We will simply put you in contact with your English-speaking celebrant, who will help you write your own vows and design your very own ceremony. It’s as easy as that!

Is there the possibility to choose the vendors ourselves?

Why making complicated something that is so simple? The job of searching for the best wedding vendors and getting to know them and how they work has already been done by us! You can simply trust us in assigning to your intimate wedding only the local wedding vendors who 100% align with your vision, number of guests and ceremony location. Just tell us what your taste in terms of flowers, music and wedding cake is and we’ll make all those elements happen without you worrying of a single thing.

Is a coordinator really necessary on the wedding day?

In elopements and very intimate weddings, coordinators are not very necessary. Since we work with skilled, experienced, and expert vendors who are all locals, they know what they’re doing so you won’t have any “where to go” or “what to do next” moments.

Florists can deliver the flowers to you directly. The makeup artist can help you with everything about your looks. The transportation vendor will take you to your ceremony and reception location on time and accurately. That’s why we’re confident that even without an on-the-day coordinator, your wedding will run smoothly.

Does customisable mean we can remove items and reduce the price?

We understand that budget is one of the main concerns in wedding planning. The good news is that we allow full customisation of the package so you can adapt it to your needs to suit your budget! During your initial consultation period you can remove, swap or change the package inclusions as needed. Once you’ve figured it out, we can recalculate the price accordingly.

Can we customise the ceremony and write our own vows?

If you are getting married by civil ceremony, then you cannot customise the ceremony as this has to follow a formal structure. By prior agreement with the Mayor or Registrar who will be performing the ceremony, you may be allowed to say your own vows. However, if you are getting married symbolically then you can completely adapt the ceremony working to your wishes.

Do you offer a payment plan for the package?

Yes! We take payments in 2, 3 or 4 equal instalments split into a deposit at time of booking, 2nd payment at 12 months before, 3rd payment at 6 months before and balance at 30 days before the wedding. The number of instalments applicable to you will depend on how far in advance you book your wedding package with us.

As a general guideline, weddings booked over 12 months in advance can be paid in four instalments, those booked between 12 and 6 months before will be paid in three instalments and those less than 6 months in advance will be split into 2 payments. Last minute bookings of less than 6-8 weeks in advance will need to be paid in full at the time of signing the agreement.

Weather in France

You want to get married in France for its delicious French cuisine, its wines and… the weather! Well, keep in mind that France is a pretty large country with a variety of climates: in the North the regions of Britanny, Normandy and Hauts-de-France certainly don’t have the same warm summers as Provence, Cote d’Azur, Aquitaine, Midi-Pyrénées and Languedoc-Roussillon do.

At the same time, in the French Riviera strong winds can get uncomfortable even in the hottest of summer days. You better also avoid the South West of France in July and August, if you don’t want to melt with temperatures up to 40 degrees Celsius and scorching sun. In the Loire Valley instead, May could be risky for an outdoor French chateau wedding – it’s statistically the month with the most rainfalls during the year.

To protect yourself from both ends of the spectrum – a rainy day and a crazy hot day – we suggest you to consider renting a marquee, parasols or a canopy, or even booking a wedding venue which offers an indoor room to use as your plan B for the ceremony and reception. Be ready for all situations and you won’t ever be disappointed!

Testimonials

Past weddings Nathalie and Mahesh

First things first: if you’re planning a destination 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 celebration in Brittany, France, from Sydney, Australia.

Yana is switched-on, smart and super organised. Every little detail, every invoice and anything else that was relevant was documented through an online application 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 celebrations were not workable, Yana was able to come up with an alternative solution that still stayed true to our vision. From start to finish, Yana and her team were professional, helpful, understanding and always on top of everything. Dealing with suppliers was challenging 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 surroundings 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 expectations, hiring her was the best decision we could have made.

Nathalie & Mahesh, From Australia

We have just returned from our wedding in Domaine des Granges Vieilles, Souillac, France and what a wonderful time we have had. We had a wonderful time in our amazing home for a week and with our wedding in the middle of it we have the most incredible memories for a lifetime. Yana was so amazing from the very first email she was pleasant, helpful and always on hand to answer any queries and keep us in check to make sure nothing was missed. It has been such a pleasure to have someone so efficient and also so so lovely to deal with. We will really miss our regular emails and contact and truly consider Yana a friend. If you are looking for a wedding planner for a destination wedding or at home I wouldn’t look any further than Yana.
