Find your own rhythm

The first step to a ceremony that suits you is to define the tone and rhythm. Do you want something romantic, humorous, serious or perhaps a mix of all these? It's all about your story, so tell it your way.

Choice of location, the first personal touch

The venue for your secular ceremony can say a lot about you. A family garden, a sunset beach, an enchanted forest or even your favorite café can become the perfect setting for exchanging vows.

A custom-made frame

Unlike traditional ceremonies, there's no imposed script here. You can structure your ceremony as you see fit, incorporating readings from texts dear to you, meaningful songs, or even extracts from films that have marked your history.

Choice of speakers

Who better to talk about your love than those closest to you? Involving friends and family in the ceremony can add an incredible layer of emotion and personalization. Whether they share anecdotes, read texts or participate in a ritual, their contribution will be a priceless souvenir.

Creating unique rituals

Rituals are the heart of a secular ceremony. Sand ceremony, lantern release, tree planting... The possibilities are endless. Choose or create a ritual that has meaning for you, something that symbolizes your union and your commitment.

Setting the scene for your story

Your story is unique, and your ceremony should be too. Use photos, videos, or even objects that tell the story of your journey together to decorate the ceremony venue. This creates an intimate atmosphere and invites your guests into your world.

Music, the soul of the ceremony

Music has the power to touch hearts and highlight special moments. Choose songs that evoke memories, move you or tell your story. A personalized playlist will be the soundtrack of your love.

Your wedding ceremony is a blank canvas on which you can paint the picture of your love. By personalizing it, you create a unique and unforgettable moment, not only for yourself but also for your guests. Give free rein to your creativity, your story and your emotions to design a ceremony that reflects you, down to the smallest detail. The important thing is that every choice, from the music to the venue, from the rituals to the speakers, is a reflection of your couple and the love you share.
