Who doesn’t love a good fairy tale wedding? Here at STG HQ, we sure do. And no one does fairy tale magic quite like the mega-talented planning team at La Fete, focusing on luxury weddings and corporate events globally since 2016.
Founder Charlotte Ricard-Quesada brings her multicultural background, language skills (she’s fluent in four!), and background in luxury fashion (she worked for Tom Ford, Dior, and more) to every once-in-a-lifetime experience she creates for her clients.
Based in London and planning weddings throughout the UK as well as in Italy, France, and Spain, La Fete covers all aspects of wedding planing, from vendor selection to design to event production to on-the-day management – and every planning package is fully bespoke, to make sure each couple’s individual needs are met.
We’re not usually one to feature styled shoots, but when La Fete let us know they were working on a fairy tale Jewish wedding shoot (a rarity in itself) set in a swoon-worthy chateau in France, we knew we couldn’t pass it up.
They even used one of our signature Smashed It! smash glass pouches in the shoot! And how good does it look in that photo?!
Founder Charlotte took inspiration from her own French heritage (yes, French is one of those four languages she speaks fluently!), and we adore the dreamy, regal vibe she set for this shoot.
Charlotte took the soft and romantic color scheme, heavy on shades of white and cream with accents of lilac, gold, and green, as the starting point for the aesthetic of this shoot.
In trademark La Fete style, every detail – no matter how tiny – was attended to with so much thought and care.
As client after client has remarked, Charlotte and her team know how to get things done in order to deliver unique experiences and unforgettable memories – all in a seamless, stress-free way that allows the couple to enjoy their planning and, above all, their wedding day.
They truly sourced a dream team to work on this shoot – how sweet are these invites with an illustration of the venue from De Winton Paper Co.?
And how about that chuppah?!
Fun fact: we saw the bride’s Victorian-inspired Katya Katya gown in person at Bridal Market last month!
Love the way that fabric is draped across the chairs – seriously, no detail goes unnoticed when La Fete’s in charge!
If you’re looking for that kind of next-level attention to make your big day a smashing success, we wouldn’t recommend La Fete any more highly.
Whether you’re getting married here in the UK or need a little assistance working through the culture and language barriers for your destination wedding in France, Italy, or Spain, they’re the best of the best.
