A French Wedding with Afternoon Tea: Charlotte & Cédric

October 26, 2011

Charlotte & Cédric were married in Toulouse, France, at a former rural hospital founded in 1735 by the Bishops of St. Bertrand de Comminges.

The homemade cakes and DIY flower arrangements made this wedding personal as well as saved the pennies. The bride also made the giant pink pom pom flowers which lined the church aisle and her giant flower which she carried instead of a traditional bouquet.

“I think it was a Rock n Roll wedding because we wanted some fun and to share our happiness without a fuss,” Charlotte told me. “We organised a bubble battle with our friends and took some photos with fancy dress props in order to help people to be more relax. I think we were Rock and Roll with our accessories too: Cédric with his pink Converse and me with my giant flower.”

The reception has an afternoon tea feel and the decor was chosen to fit this theme, “The wedding theme was around the tea, and cake and mustaches (for Cédric!)” she continued. “Every table had some teapots, cups and flowers and each table was named after a famous person who had a mustache!”

Thank you so much to Charlotte & Cédric and their photographer Floriane Caux (who shoots weddings in the UK (she has recently moved to Brighton) as well as and France) for sharing.
