5 Top Tips for planning a South of France wedding


So did he pop the question over Christmas? Are you now in the throes of planning the day of your dreams? Well it seems that many of our lovely couples are planning their weddings in the South of France this year and we are delighted to be involved in so many celebrations. So what are our 5 Top Tips for planning a South of France wedding?

  1. Venue
    This is the key piece of the puzzle and also the most critical in terms of your wedding. Our suggestion is that you use a reputable company to help you find the villa venue of your dreams. There are many owners who will offer their villa to you for your wedding....not all are suitable.....
  2. Budget
    Set a realistic budget. This is not the least expensive part of the world and many services are priced accordingly. Do your research.
  3. Rain
    Yes, we do have that here....if your chosen venue does not have sufficient space for your guests then you need to think about what happens if the weather is wet - or indeed very hot. The cost of a marquee or tent can save your day
  4. Food & Drink
    That's where Adams & Adams come in...with over 12 years of experience we can put together your perfect menu, working with you to deliver exactly what you want and on budget.
  5. English Spoken
    If your French is a little rusty then we can help with a host of suppliers that all speak English....

So all that's left is for you to enjoy your dream wedding here in the South of France.

Adams & Adams Appointed as Exclusive Catering Partner


Adams & Adams have been appointed as the exclusive catering partner at a newly launched wedding and event venue in the South of France. Les Pirettes is a magical stone built 'Mas' and is the former home of that most iconic of French singers Edith Piaf. With sweeping lawns, a perfect outdoor grass clad stage and the charm and history of a bygone age, the former home of ‘The Little Sparrow’ is set to become a major wedding and event venue in the South of France. Nestled just outside of Valbonne and screened by majestic pine trees this is a new gem waiting to be discovered. Both inside and out Les Pirettes does not disappoint. The magnificent stone ‘bastide’ is clad in Mediterranean bougainvillea and opens into a majestic entrance hall. The interiors are sumptuously Provencal in style, beautifully cool in the summer months and cosy and welcoming in the autumn and winter. The garden room is ideal for indoor events, with space for up to 60 guests for a seated dinner. The gardens have unlimited space, and will easily accommodate a wedding or event for up to 200 guests. There is on-site parking for up to 100 cars and a separate entrance for the catering and event staff. HISTORY: Les Pirettes – Home to Piaf in her later years, it is said that she enjoyed the tranquillity of Les Pirettes after a lifetime in the spotlight. Despite the beautifully proportioned living spaces and bedrooms she spent much of her time in the smallest of the bedrooms. Retaining much from the heritage of Piaf, there is a stone table shaded by oak trees where it is said she liked to sit and listen to her gramophone. The current owners have preserved all of the grandeur yet peace and tranquillity of this very special home. 'We are delighted to be able to create wonderful events in this magical venue' says Kate Adams 'This is a very special location that deserves only the most delicious of food and that stylish Adams & Adams twist'.
