Nestled in Menthon Saint-Bernard, in Haute-Savoie, the fabulous Palace de Menthon , a 5-star hotel on the shores of Lake Annecy, is the extraordinary place chosen by Audrey and Fabrice to celebrate their wedding in the style of a modern fairy tale. A day skilfully orchestrated by HEDHERA, wedding planner installed in the region, which knew how to respect Audrey's wishes, and imagined a refined and elegant scenography, with a nod to the South of France. Audrey and Fabrice's wedding at the Palace de Menthon in Annecy is a perfect example of the common work of talented wedding providers, most of whom are part of the Blog's Vendor Guide! I invite you to discover their beautiful day captured by wedding photographer Thomas Audiffren and filmed by Cedric Durand Films.
Their Love Story:
For Audrey and Fabrice, nothing suggested that one day they would say "yes" to each other and that they would end their life together. It was in 2016 that they met at their workplace. She, a nursing assistant, he an anesthesiologist, they meet in the corridors of the hospital. They cautiously agree to meet at a dinner where the ordinary will give way, on the menu, to the extraordinary.
They quickly become a couple. From this love a little girl was born, Cassandra. The idea of marriage gave Audrey a feeling of pride and recognition, she needed to show the world that she had found true love. Fabrice, meanwhile, needed to show his commitment to Audrey because he was sure of his feelings.
Told by Anne-Clothilde, from HEDHERA: Audrey and Fabrice live in Guyana but have decided to get married in Annecy, close to their future place of residence. They were therefore looking for a wedding planner in Annecy. I remember the bride asking me to orchestrate a marriage worthy of the series “Dynasty”. She wanted to play Fallon Carrington. Fabrice had given carte blanche to Audrey to organize a real fairy tale. So we both decide to go with soft pastel and warm tones. The venue quickly imposed itself: the Palace of Menthon, a prestigious place in Annecy and found a common thread in the pun Menthon / Menton. To give a Mediterranean touch to their wedding, we incorporated the famous lemons of Menton into the scenography. The stationery was created in this theme – lemons and blue and white hues with a golden touch – in order to respect the chic and sophisticated flair that Audrey wanted. Everything is declined in this sense: blue and white flowers, plates with golden edging, a seating chart featuring lemons, matching place cards... Even the guests favors are no exception: vials of Limoncello, the famous lemon liqueur. Audrey's dream wedding came into life! Fabrice was amazed. I am always feeling grateful and happy when the newlyweds tell you that they had the best day of their lives!
