French Wedding in Australia
Aurélie and John are adventurers, so of course they chose a wedding ceremony on a wild Australian beach, with French attitude. It was the ultimate French Australian wedding on the beach!!
Married on the beach
The clouds and rain in the morning worried us a little. However the bold Australian sun came out, the clouds cleared away, and the sky became a brilliant blue for their wedding on the beach.
It was not your usual French wedding for sure. It was not the standard Australian beach wedding either. It was a combination of who Aurelie and John are, and the adventure they embrace in marriage.
Their ceremony was designed just for them, with fun French traditions, relaxed Australian vibe, and became quite an experience for the French family. Weddings in France are quite different.
Touches of French
Aurélie is French and John is Australian, so they embraced a bilingual wedding ceremony. They chose a sublime combination of French poetry for their French wedding ceremony and bare foot in the sand on Mudjimba Beach, on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland for that authentic Australian touch.
During their ceremony, Aurélie and John embraced a French celebratory tradition. Imagine the crossroads of fragrant roses and bubbles of champagne. For details on that tradition read this story on Rose de Reims and Champagne
Aurélies’ family and indeed two of her bridesmaids had come over from France only weeks before the beach wedding. To help them feel very welcome and quite at home, the entire ceremony was conducted in both English and in French. This is something I can do for you too. Ceremonies n French or tapping into some French cultural traditions is a specialty for my celebrant services.
