From Chamonix to St Agnes : A Romantic Boho Wedding by the Sea

A true romance in St. Agnes for beautiful Swiss-French & English couple, who usually spend their dreamy days nestled in the french Alps working along side one another in their exquisite new restaurant in Chamonix Mont-Blanc. We had the pleasure of supporting this lovely couple from the UK, assisting & sourcing interior furnishings and stylings,  supplying & building the marquee infrastructure whilst giving fabulous local supplier recommendations.

Here’s John & Morgane’s Story …



“John is English and a passionate Chef – I am Swiss-French and work with John in our new restaurant in Chamonix Mont-Blanc in the french Alps. We have been together 3 years now and during our anniversary trip to NYC last May John proposed to me on a sunny day on a balcony overlooking the Empire State Building… it was like a dream! Like many woman I have been dreaming of that day since I was a little girl, I always dreamt of being a princess but never would have hoped finding such a prince charming to spend the rest of my life with.”

Why St. Agnes?

“After thinking a lot about it, I believe we found what we would like to do for the celebrations – we would like to have two weddings; one in England with a civil ceremony and one in France with a blessing ceremony at church.

On our second anniversary travel John showed me the marvelous region of Cornwall and I literally fell in love with the surroundings, the landscape and the peaceful ambiance. On John’s side he has some family in St Ages and spent all his summer there as a child so has so many extraordinary memories over there. During that travel we said that when the time would come for us to get married we would love to have a wedding in Cornwall.

Since I have been back from NYC, I had not stopped looking at venues, ideas and dates for our Cornish wedding and one night I found your website and literally fell in love with the theme you are offering and the way you are presenting Boho weddings by the sea. It would be so fabulous to have someone who knows the region to count on to organise this wedding as we live overseas.”

Your Style & Vision

Here’s a little flavour of John & Morgane’s initial Mood Board…

We are going for a Country Rustic Chic Style Wedding Party in a marquee by the sea, decorated with red, pale pink & white flowers, candles, beautiful lights, rustic lace and fabrics with wooden decors.  We wanted the wedding to be more like a big party with all our loved ones around to celebrate, complete with an open bar filled with French Champagne, Cider barrels, Gin & Whisky.


The relaxed, no-table plan feasting style dining from Fego Foods was the most beautiful and orignal food we have had at a wedding.

Your Dress

“The Day: Vintage Dolce & Gabbana from my mother – I always dreamt about this skirt since a little girl, so it was like a dream come true to actually wear it on my wedding day. The Evening: Two days after our engagement in NYC i was out shopping in Manhattan and saw this amazing babydoll lace dress and just had a crush and bought it, the brand was an American designer called Alexis.”

Your helpful tips for other Brides? 

“I was always scared not to enjoy myself as much as I wanted, so i was over organised through the year and then the D-week arrived and I enjoyed every second and loved every minute of it. I don’t have any regrets and I would really just say to brides to let themselves go with the flow. Yes, decoration & schedule of the day are important but it is not the most important. The people around you who are there for you both & and to celebrate your love – this is the most beautiful, not the rest.”

We would like to thank John & Morgane for sharing their special day with us, it was an absolute pleasure and privilege to have played a part in your wedding celebrations. We wish you both a lifetime of happiness together!
