Welcome dear lovers and bonjour! I am Ariane, your French bilingual certified wedding celebrant in South of France Provence and professional opera singer with classical and contemporary repertoire (Ave Maria, gospel, opera, pop songs…).

Imagine having the ceremony of your dreams
thanks to your French wedding celebrant in south of France Provence

Beware : in France a wedding celebrant is not a legal entity : a legal marriage contract must therefore be signed before the Maire (France) or in your own country. French celebrants only deliver symbolic ceremonies. Legal requirements for getting married in France are very complex and particularly difficult for non residents.

I am so thankful and touched about the kind words my lovely couples have shared about their ceremony and experience with me

Ariane, the fairy who brought a magical dimension to our wedding … Thank you for all your generosity, talent and the emotions you inspired in all our guests.

We will never forget our ceremony.

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.

Dear Ariane, Thank you so much for all your help during the months leading up to our wedding. You created a ceremony that captured our relationship perfectly. Your kindness, dynamism, positivity, and excellent advice made working with you an absolute pleasure. Our families were taken aback by your voice, your charisma, and your elegance, and your interpretation of “Con te Partiro” will forever remain in our memories…

We recommend your services to anyone who wishes to make their big day unforgettable, alongside an exceptional officiant singer.

Not only does Ariane have a rare and amazing talent, but from beginning to end she was : attentive, professional, responsive, kind, and listened to us. She guided us through the entire ceremony process. She was extremely professional in this. She made our day everything that we dreamed and more. It was a magical, unforgettable moment we will all remember.

Please do not hesitate in your choice with her.

I could never thank her enough !

 Dear Ariane, We were very extremely touched by your words during our wedding ceremony and the order of service was absolutely magnificent. Everybody was impressed by the ceremony, the music, your songs, the sequence of events. Many wondered how you knew so much about us. Thank you for personalizing this celebration and making it so alive, for including our children as you did (they were very moved to be involved so much). We thank you again from the bottom of our hearts!

My dual French expertise : certified officiant & opera singer

The French Art de Vivre is a combination of elements that take root in our history and culture of France. It involves the sense of detail, elegance, aesthetics and freedom. Therefore, I advocate a very qualitative artistic heartfelt approach of your celebration. My singing is an important part of the ceremony I create with you as your French wedding celebrant in south of France Provence.
