About Us

French Wedding Company was founded by Laura Southgate following more than 20 years experience planning weddings and events. In the UK she worked in the 5 star hotel and corporate hospitality sector before moving to France where she managed luxury châteaux. French Wedding Company was born out of her passion for creating unique events that see clients enjoying great experiences.

Laura says: "Getting married in France didn’t teach me how to plan a wedding but it did teach me what it is to be a bride – to feel the emotions that only a wedding can evoke.

"Every time someone contacts me at the French Wedding Company, my heart skips as I remember the excitement that my own engagement created. But it also reminds me of how daunting planning a wedding can be.

"So the first thing you can be sure of when you work with my team and me.... is we know how you feel".

Our Promises

our promises for your wedding

A Unique Event

If you want a wedding package then we are not for you. At the French Wedding Company, we specialise in creating bespoke events, tailored to each individual couple. No two weddings are ever the same.

A Personal Service

Our team has a broad range of expertise - we are not one person wearing many hats. This means you get the very highest level of customer care. To achieve this we have to limit the number of weddings we do, but then we believe in quality not quantity.

A Strong Relationship

On average it takes 300 hours to plan a wedding, often over the course of more than a year, so building strong relationships with clients is central to our process. We believe planner and couple should be a 'good fit.'

A Straightforward Approach

We prefer to keep things as simple and as transparent as possible so we charge a fixed fee for our service. Once we've helped you find the right suppliers, your contract will be directly with them. There are no hidden costs.
