Emine & Andreas : Full Wedding Planning and Wedding Ceremony au Domaine des Bidaudières, Vouvray (37), le 1er Juillet 2017

"Living in London and having a wedding in France was always going to be more challenging than doing it in the UK but we love France and wanted to have it there.

After searching for a great wedding planner for sometime we found Alexa.

We made a fantasic choice and we were so happy with how the wedding went.

Nothing was too big for Alexa to do and she helped us every step of the way.

Being from London we had no connections in France and do not speak French.

Alexa helped plan every aspect of our wedding and we are extremley happy that we chose her to plan our wedding.

Thank you 

Andreas and Emine x"

Marlie & Kevin : Wedding coordination held in the Château de la Bourdaisière, Montlouis s/ Loire (37) Loire Valley on 30th July 2016

"Alexa coordinated our wedding day and did a wonderful job: she embodies professionalism and her friendly demeanor and experience was very much appreciated by us. She even went above and beyond on the day of by saving the bride and her bridesmaids from a terrible and unexpected situation that arose when the people hired for makeup and hair cancelled the morning of the wedding - she quickly found an amazing lady to come in and rescue us! We had an additional challenge in that we live abroad and so were planning the wedding from another country, but all communication with her was flawless and she was very attentive in all of our interactions. I would not hesitate to recommend her services and sincerely thank her for everything that she did in coordinating our special day!"

Marie: Surprise Birthday Party held at the Domaine de La Herserie, La Croix en Touraine (37), Loire Valley, France on November 8th - 10th, 2014

"Alexa Réception had already managed our Wedding in May 2014, so I decided to call upon her again for my husbands’ 50th birthday in November 2014.
Yet again Alexa proved what a professional she is what a good listener she is too.

She was able to work with my ideas and came up with exactly what I wanted.

Alexa was a constant support and help during the preparation, she took initiatives and helped me way beyond what was originally supposed to be her job.

Her help was really important as I was organizing a surprise weekend all by myself. 

We worked together really well. Her presence during the event itself was, as usual, very efficient yet discreet. Thanks again.

 Whatever the event, Alexa’s  help is precious, useful and invaluable."

Thank you again for being so professional, easy to contact and for being so kind.

Sandra & Nicolas: Wedding held at  l'Armandière, Bossé (37), Loire Valley, France on September 6th, 2014

Wedding Day Coordination Service

"We got married on September 6th. We contacted Alexa just a few months beforehand.

We wanted to organize absolutely everything but needed someone on site to manage the set up outside and to be there to meet our suppliers.

We got on really well right from the very first telephone conversation. Alexa is a very good listener and gives good advice.

On the day itself, she managed everything we wanted (chairs for the vows ceremony, Candy bar/refreshments, and of course the table to present the Guestbook).

There was a problem during the cocktail, and she acted really quickly and solved it without anyone even noticing.

Alexa is very discreet and our guests thought she was a guest too because she was as elegant as one should be at a wedding.

To sum up, thank you, thank you Alexa, largely thanks to you our day was a success. Thank you!"

Marie & Pascal: Wedding held at the Château Art Hôtel, Rochecorbon (37), Loire Valley, France on May 30th, 2014

Full wedding planning and design

"What can we say...

We had planned 3 full days of partying, and needed help with the logistics.

Alexa went above and beyond her role. Every month we made changes, we drew up 3 seating plans, 3 different table decoration themes, fireworks, a show on Saturday, brunch and an afternoon snack, in short we really made her work hard, and despite that, she never stopped smiling, was always available, and her presence, efficient yet discreet, was a real bonus.

On our Big Day, the way she took care of us and of our guests, her very presence made the event that was already a really happy one, even better.

The way that she managed to deal with the tiny hitches that occurred throughout the day without us seeing a thing; or our guests for that matter; is further proof of her talent.

We already know that whatever we decide to organize in the future, Alexa will be the first person we call! "
