L'Emporium du Vin – Wine partner with Adams & Adams

Posted by Kate Adams in Partners

Run by husband and wife team Alex and Mel Ignatieff,  l’Emporium di Vin is a wonderful wine warehouse in Mandelieu. Alex was the original wine buyer for Harvey Nichols in London and brings a lifetime of expertise to the amazing selection of wines available.

Offering a wide range of local wand French wines, this is also the place to seek out some international wines for when you are fed up with the local rose. Having started as a wholesale warehouse this enterprising couple opened their doors to the public last September and now offer tastings, a delivery service and a wine search facility where they will use their network to seek out that special wine for you. Do go and visit them, even if you are just looking to stock up on your own ‘house’ wine’ then Alex and Mel will be delighted to help.

Adams & Adams are delighted to be working with Alex and Mel and we will be able to offer our clients an amazing selection of wines to complement our delicious menus.

Working with Tiffany Flowers

Posted by Kate Adams in Partners

At Adams & Adams we understand that flowers are an integral part of the decoration and design of an event and we are delighted to be working with Tiffany Flowers who create breathtaking floral displays.

Tiffany Flowers has recently been launched on the Cote d’Azur bringing flowers that are as exciting as fashion & interior design into the home.
Founder Tiffany Chesterman was trained by one of the world’s most influential florists, Jane Packer who designed the Victory Bouquets for the medal winners at the London Olympics and has been responsible for several British royal weddings.
While co-founder Celine Huggins takes her passion for fabulous flowers directly from nature and a love of the great outdoors.
Tiffany explains: ‘You meet people at very special moments in their lives, so even though something like a wedding can be nerve-wracking the reward of delighted reactions is just glorious.’
She adds: ‘We normally start at the client’s house to see what they like and I think about the colour and budget and the rest falls in to place. Sometimes people have already decided their scheme (like a client who wanted red-white-and-blue to represent the French flag!) and other times the setting itself will inspire you.’
Working with the Tiffany team is simply a pleasure will add that extra special touch to your event.

Is a Swimming Pool or a Dance Floor with Adams & Adams Catering?

Posted by Kate Adams in Partners

Here in the South of France we are lucky to enjoy over 300 days of sunshine each year and outdoor events do not hold the same fear of bad weather as holding an event say in London will do. But if you are planning a wedding reception for 200 guests in April and the forecast is for April showers then we know just the thing to keep you warm and dry throughout the event.
In fact, it’s not always the rain that we are worried about when we are creating your event, in many cases we use a marquee or cover to create some shade for the guests and the food. In the height of the summer months setting out the buffet table in your garden is a great idea but not if the desserts are melting before your eyes.
And what about turning the pool into a dance floor? Well, this is the French Riviera and everything is possible. If you want your event to have a real ‘WOW’ factor then covering the pool with a transparent cover and using it as a dance floor, complete with under lighting of course, is guaranteed to have your guests up and dancing the night away.
At Adams & Adams we only work with a handpicked selection of partners and for all things marquee or covered pool then we work with Plein Sud Events. The offer an amazing range of solutions for keeping your event warm, cool or indeed creating a wow factor. Here are a few of the events where Plein Sud have designed the covering, including that all important pool / dance floor idea.
So even if you’re booking your event here in the South of France with Adams & Adams catering then we may well recommend that we create the perfect covered area keeping your guests cool and your event perfect in ever detail.

Weddings and Celebrations in the South of France

Posted by Kate Adams in Partners

At Adams & Adams we are seeing many more clients coming to us who want to celebrate their wedding, their christening or another milestone in their lives in a different way. Often we are asked if we can find someone who can help them organise the celebration in the way that they want and who is experienced enough to advise them along the way. Because of these requests we are delighted to be working with Anne Naylor a qualified and professional celebrant who is able to help you celebrate in the way that you want.

Anne Naylor brings seven years experience of designing and officiating personalised celebrations in the South of France and other destinations.  It is her  joy and pleasure to create a ceremony that fits your  individual hopes and aspirations.  The celebration may be intimate and family based, larger scale and more elaborate, spiritual and religious, or non-spiritual and a celebration of love. Wedding ceremonies can be created for couples of mixed faith, culture or nationality.
Anne will give assistance in choosing vows, declarations of love, readings, music and symbolic exchanges to make the  celebration unique, meaningful and memorable.
All guests are welcomed and made to feel important as a community of witnesses, supporting the couple on their new journey together into married life.
Have a chat to Anne and discuss your thoughts on how you would like to personalise your celebration. She is available for an initial discussion by phone or SKYPE.
