You're getting married?
One of you speaks French?
You're planning to get married in France or somewhere else in Europe. You need a bilingual officiant for your ceremony...
French is my mother tongue but I aslo speak German and English, since I've studied both at university in France and Germany.
I've played theater since I was a teenager, so I'm used to standing in front of a large audience, and I must say... I love it!
I've been writing texts for others for four years, and I celebrated my first bilingual wedding ceremony in summer 2017. It's been a personal discovery, a revelation of what really brings me joy : celebrating a wedding is one of the most beautiful, emotional and exciting experiences of life!

Call it a "celebrant", a "solemniser", or a "vow master" : all these words designate a person who officiates at a secular wedding ceremony.
You can choose to organize your ceremony where you want, but in France, getting legally married is only possible through a civil ceremony which necessarily takes place at the council offices (mairie). So, if you wish for a secular service, it also has to happen at another place, just like a religious ceremony.
Let's do it together !
We think about it
We write it down
Your Wedding Day
First of all, we meet (virtually or in real life), so we can decide to work together on your ceremony. Skype and the phone are good alternatives to meeting IRL if the distance doesn't allow it.
You tell me details about your love story : how you met, how you fell in love, what kind of relationship you have, what you've done together, your plans for the future, what your dreams are, why you love him/her, etc.
We talk about your initial representation of the ceremony. How should it be? What does your dream-wedding look like?
Your idea of the ceremony will evolve while we talk about it. We will take the necessary time for your representation to get to the point when you say "That's it!".
Through your proposals and my advice, we build your ceremony together.
The first text proposal can emerge from you or from me, depending on what you prefer.
We work together on your ceremony so that it gets just like you picture it as it should be.
Want a bit more of a surprise? That's possible too!
On your wedding day, you can concentrate on yourself and on your beloved ones : your ceremony will be just like you've dreamt it, since we'll have prepared it seriously and in détails!
