Natalie and Steven committed their vows to each other at All Saints Church in Esher at a wonderful family ceremony and onto Hampton Court Palace Golf Course for their wedding reception. The day was brilliant, beautiful weather and the joining of two families. It was a cultural celebration too with both the bride and the groom from French decent; we were excited to see what they had planned to celebrate cultural differences!
Don’t worry about leaving out one side or the other of the wedding party with English and French speakers; the couple did so well to make the day a beautiful fusion of cultures and inclusive to everyone.
Here are our top ideas to include everyone at your bilingual wedding and what Natalie and Steven did so well.
* The first taster of what was in store was the couples order of service at the church. The ushers gave one to each guest as they entered the church. The couple had the stationery printed in both languages so all guests knew what to expect at what time.
* After the ceremony, the family served the guests champagne and brioche as the bride and groom greeted their well-wishers
* The couple had a croquet-em-bouche profiterole tower that was created by their French family
* I was looking forward to the speeches and the bride, groom, best man and chief bridesmaid took it in turns to translate from English to French. It had beautiful moments and fun moments – with two lots of laughter as the English speakers got the joke and the French speakers heard the joke 30 seconds later!
It was a beautiful day from beginning to end and a real privilege to witness – thank you Natalie and Steven.
