Easy to say, but actually what is the outside ceremony ? 

In our view, the secular ceremony owes its success to six essential elements:

  • Your place 

At first it’s the choice of your place, atypical, romantic, that will plunge your guests into your universe. Inside or outside, the important thing is that he looks like you.

  •  Your decoration

Your decoration will then play a major role, not need to spend a fortune, concentrate on the headlights (decorated arch, flowered alleys, walled chairs) all in your image.
