I’m so proud and happy to be sharing this wonderful Nautical Themed French Wedding with you today 😀 One of my most lovely friends, Hannah, married her dream boy on the 3rd August last Summer in Brittany, France.
This gorgeous pair decided to marry in RoRo’s home town of Quiberon which opened up an amazing opportunity for a seaside themed wedding. After searching high and low for a venue that was going to be well suited to their bohemian style, Hannah and RoRo settled on a boat for their venue! What better way to celebrate your vows that afloat in the ocean?
The total spend for this amazing nautical venue was 2,000€ and included the hire of the boat along with strawberries and champagne for the guests.
Hannah kept her budget in check by hiring a French Wedding Co-ordinator who was able to negotiate the best possible rates for the London based couple. From liaising with the caterers to setting up the venue for the reception, the Wedding Co-ordinator was definitely one of Hannah’s best money saving tips to share with other brides wanting a destination wedding sans dramas!
Hannah made the most of her budget by choosing her feminine nautical themed bridesmaids dresses from River Island. Hannah chose her own £40 shoes from Next and wore silk flowers in her hair that she had nabbed from her Mum’s bathroom! She also tucked a photo of her Grandpa into her bouquet which was such a nice way for him to be with her on the day.
To transport the guests from the harbor over the reception venue, the couple hired this horse drawn ‘carriage’ to transport their guests for 150€.
At the venue after the wedding, the room was decked with seashells and starfish for favours which cost around £1 each and hundreds of fairy lights which added a magical atmosphere for the guests.
Hannah had a very specific idea for how she wanted to present her table plans and came up with this great idea! The photo frames cost around 20€ and she attached these to shutter style screens at the venue.
Hannah and RoRo decided to celebrate with an amazing multi leveled cheese cake. Just looking at this picture makes me hungry!
Hannah and RoRo used an old fishing boat for an impromptu photo booth which the wedding party clearly loved!
Congratulations to you both, you lovely pair and thank you so much for sharing your gorgeous Nautical Themed French Wedding with us 😀
Big French Love,
