Ariane is an authentic person, empathetic and a wonderful singer. Our secular ceremony was one of the most beautiful moments of our lives, by its emotional intensity and the simple beauty of this moment. From the construction to the realization of this moment, Ariane accompanies you with a deep respect for who you are, what you have been and what you want to be, alone and together. More than a simple artifice, the ceremony is a real cathartic process, personal and conjugal, that each groom should undertake before joining the great adventure of marriage. Thank you Ariane, for these words and all these notes that have made our hearts turn upside down. A moment of eternity.
Your made to measure wedding ceremony
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.
