Ceremonie in the middle of Gironde – 01st June 2019
It is in the city of Saint-Caprais-de-Bordeaux located in the Entre-deux-mers, on the right south bank of the Garonne that Andréa and Philippe wished to organize the secular ceremony of their bilingual Franco-Australian wedding. The newlyweds chose me to be their secular ceremonial officiate in the family estate park, Château la Gontrie.
The bride, Andrea, wanted the speeches of the secular ceremony to be pronounced in the native language of her Australian mother: English.
Having lived in Australia as a child, Andréa has always practiced English, just like French, but she also wanted the texts to be read in French for her husband and her husband’s family.
In addition, the newlyweds have friends from foreign countries so it was logical and necessary for English to cover a part of the ceremony.
It was perfect for them because I am a secular ceremonial officiate for bilingual marriages! I speak English fluently so I had no problem managing the secular ceremony.
It was a beautiful ceremony with my speech and those of the guests, the musics, the couple exchanges and love of everybody !
