Your wedding celebrant in France and classical crossover singer

Welcome ! My name is Ariane and I’m a French English-speaking wedding celebrant in France & classical crossover singer.

I celebrate your love with a touch of French elegance

So you have decided to get married  and you’re planning a destination wedding in France ? Congratulations !

Together, let’s create the wedding ceremony of your dreams !

But the civil ceremony at the registry office or town hall is often very impersonal and leaves you feeling dissatisfied.

Whether you have chosen to commit yourselves during a Catholic ceremony in church or a symbolic secular ceremony, I will guide you in the creation & the celebration of your truly bespoke wedding ceremony.

Consequently, I invite you to experience a ceremony which is 100% personalised to you,  full of music, emotions and meaning, always respecting your religious, philosophical or spiritual beliefs and your cultural origins.

So, we will celebrate your love and commitment to each other as you embark on the adventure of life together. In short, my role is to create a magical moment in time that highlights your relationship to the most important people in your life.

Professional wedding celebrant in France and singer

” Marriage allows love to be spoken, to be sung, to be celebrated. Love needs to be expressed in a sacred way,

it needs rituals, pledges of how it incarnates the wondrous and the divine”.

D. Sonet, Découvrons l’amour

Your bespoke wedding ceremony

A performance full of emotion and elegance

First, you choose the place that best corresponds to you (a church, the place in which you are holding your reception, a beach, a forest, a chapel, a garden…).


Then I conceive and make your personalised ceremony possible, in accordance with the sacred significance of this day, with you and for you. Everything is to be defined together. The choice of words, rituals, the music and my singing will reflect your love, your values and create the desired atmosphere. Consequently, this moment might be tinged with solemnity, joy, gratitude, spirituality, poetry, romantism or magicit’s up to you to choose !


Then, I will be at your side on the big day as your wedding celebrant in France and/or singer, creating the special bond between you, your family and your guests. Finaly, you will commit yourselves sincerely and will exchange your vows, your consent and your rings in an intense moment of sharing and emotion. Thus, all your family and friends will feel as involved as both of you.

The role of music during your ceremony

Music is a magical link for emotions and transcendence. It unites generations and cultures. My singing will be the thread, revealing all the beauty, joy and grace of your wedding ceremony, with that special French touch: a rare and exclusive service, designed to ‘enchant’ your union.

So, you choose the songs that suit you from my large repertoire of glamorous and chic crossover songs (Ave Maria, gospel, opera, spirituals, cinema, modern & pop songs, jazz …).

Music expresses that which cannot be said and on which it is impossible to be silent.”

Victor Hugo
