... with love
SOLÈNE & GUILLAUME
Both Solene & Guillaume are Parisians, but Guillaume spent much of his childhood vacationing in Mallorca at his grandparents’ house in the Soller valley, and has a very close relationship with the Serra de Tramuntana – which captivated Solene -. So, they decided to get married in Son Marroig reserving the venue, under our guidance, a year and a half before the wedding.
We had the pleasure of helping this young and excited couple whose history and engagement is worthy of a romantic movie script.
They met at a dating store in Paris 8 years ago and that day they both felt they had known each other forever. One afternoon Solene returned home and discovered a bag and a large bouquet of roses with a note that said: “Get dressed in this dress that I found for you and come and meet me at the place where we kissed for the first time.” There, near of a Parisian palace, Guillaume invited her to a drink and explained all the reasons why he wanted to spend his life with her … and Solene, surrendered with love, could not refuse.
The preparations were very careful; the food, the wines and the party were a priority. We counted on the help of Ainere Catering and with its sommelier we prepared a wine tasting that treated everyone in the menu test and helped them to decide the most appropriate wine strains and harvests for the occasion.
The selected decoration, subtle, delicate and Mediterranean, combined with the stylistic essence of the couple.
The blue of the sea, present in the cushions, lanterns and ceramic bases, and also the lemons representing the valley of Soller, were there to match the stylish Artling suit that Guillaume wore, together with Bobbies shoes.
The bride wore an elegant dress by the independent designer Oliver Freine with shoes by Sezane and a hair comb of Guillemette de Maison. The bridal bouquet had to be like her: fine, beautiful and classic, yet very natural. So, we used eusthoma, thlapsis, roses, pitimini rose, pittosporum, olive and veronicas to give it an unstructured movement.
All attendees wore hats; a present from the couple; to protect themselves from the sun, including the couple.
On this occasion, the ceremony was set up with dressed banks placed asymmetrically to give a more spacious area to the wedding aisle.
We designed the dinner with two long imperial tables located along the large terrace. Both were dressed in white tablecloths, rattan under dishes, stone-colour linen napkins and two models of coloured glasses to give a flair of contrast, but also to combine them with the typical Majorcan fabric motif “lenguas” that had the jars of jelly (a gift of bride and groom for their guests).
The centre of the tables was decorated with hundreds of candles and illuminated crystal lanterns, olive and lemon arrangements.
The chair model chosen was the Napoleon, a tribute to the great French emperor.
