Planning & Design by Nomad Republic
Analia & Emmanuel chose a Renaissance Chateau for their destination wedding in Burgundy. Both epicurean at heart, they wanted to treat their guests to a refined and memorable dining experience. Their wedding weekend was the perfect occasion to celebrate French cuisine and the art of living à la française. It started with a symbolic ceremony in the Chateau’s rose garden. An aperitif highlighting savoury delicacies from France and Belgium, a nod to their respective hometowns, took place afterwards. On top of the traditional mises en bouche, it included a raw bar and signature drinks: Champagne for Madame and Belgian biers for Monsieur. In the meantime, guests were invited to grab a a mallet and start a game on the grass.
Dinner was served in the Chateau’s 16th-century Grand Gallery. For their wedding decor, the couple had left Nomad Republic carte blanche. They opted for a color palette of cream, peach, pink and orange and brought antique brass decor elements for the touch of warmth and elegance. Their dinnerware featured elegant scalloped plates, gold-rimmed glassware and pearl ivory cutlery and their table layout was a mix of wooden rectangular and round tables.
For dessert and dances, everyone moved to the Music Rooms where they danced until dawn. The amateurs of spirits took part in a whisky tasting immersion with a Scottish specialist. Then at night, the Chateau’s grounds were lit with thousands of burning torches and a bonfire on the lawn. On the following day, Analia & Emmanuel’s guests enjoyed a barbecue feast in the Riad area followed by a wine tasting in the medieval wine cellar. Their wedding weekend ended on an adventurous note with a buggy tour in the wine countryside.
KIND WORDS FROM THE COUPLE
We wanted to thank Nomad Republic for their dedication and hard work throughout the planning process – that started 18 months out – to our actual wedding day and brunch. Our wedding was a real success, from our team of vendors, to the entertainment options and activities that Nomad Republic arranged for us. Our assistance was really stunned by the splendid setup they created. We were really able to relax and enjoy our day, and so did our guests.
