MERCI to all our previous couples and suppliers for your feedback
"Planning an international wedding is a daunting task, especially if you aren't fluent in (my case) French. I am a deep researcher in anything I tackle and after interviewing some planners, it became clear that Clémentine had integrity, honesty, an eye for design, and a mind toward keeping a budget. Many of the other planners I spoke with felt superficial, and were only interested in the glitz and glamour while Clem wanted to get to know US. That made all the difference.
We can't imagine planning our wedding without Clémentine and Mark. Her experience and relationships with other vendors were invaluable! It was a true collaboration and her recommendations were always spot on.
To be able to work with a husband and wife duo (wedding planner and photographer/videographer) allowed for us to have conversations about the flow of the day and how to best capture and share this important, yet fleeting moment in our life with intention.
They visited the venue for us, sending video, photos, and feedback. And when we were thinking of options for the ceremony location, they gave excellent advice based on their knowledge of what we valued and their on-the-ground experience. They (very smartly) suggested an engagement shoot in the lavender fields during our whirlwind trip to visit vendors before our big day--something that we never imagined possible-- which ended up being a highlight of our trip. Truly, an experience we'll never forget! Most importantly, we had the chance to get to know Mark and how he approaches shoots, so on our wedding day, he had our complete trust and had so much fun during our couples shoot!
I could go on about Clem and Mark, but suffice is to say that they are a genuine, down-to-earth, TALENTED, thoughtful couple, and it reflects in their work. Thank you for making our extraordinary day possible." Cassie and Sam, 2019
"We really want to say a huge thank you to Clémentine and Mark for all their work in the lead up to and for our wedding.
From finding our perfect venue and all the nearby suppliers to creatively turning our ideas into reality, Clémentine was truly amazing from start to finish. If you have doubts about needing someone on the day... trust us it's so worth it. We were able to relax and enjoy time with our friends and family because we knew it was all taken care of.
Mark was a superstar - we're very excited to see the final photos as it was completely clear that his artistic nature took over and he knew exactly what he was doing. We were very happy to meet with him and enjoy some drinks with the wedding party the day before because it meant everyone knew his friendly face and was at ease.
We contacted quite a few wedding planners across the south of France and some seemed a bit too stuffy for us. If you want a friendly, creative team who will go above and beyond then Awardweddings couldn't come more highly recommended from us.
We had so many comments on the both of you from our guests, so if we have any more friends planning weddings in south of France expect a call! " Sarah & Fahad, 2018
"We honestly couldn't recommend Clementine and Mark enough. They are the ultimate power wedding couple and worked seamlessly together throughout the ceremony. Clementine took the stress out of wedding planning, her professional and tenacious approach plus organisational skills put us totally at ease during the 10 month lead up and on the day. We would have been lost without her and are certain everything wouldn't have ran so smoothly and looked so beautiful without her guidance and experience. Hiring the Awardweddings will be the best wedding decision you ever make!
We mean every word!! And we absolutely adore the teaser video - so many great shots of the little touches and peoples emotions on the day - we're made up that Mark managed to capture it all! Can't wait for the big one" Carly & Ben, 2019
"I don’t even know where to start! We just simply can’t recommend Clementine and Mark highly enough. We wanted a small, intimate wedding with just our closest family and friends, beyond that I didn’t really have much of a vision for what I wanted the day to look or feel like. Somehow in the conversations we had with Clementine she captured exactly the atmosphere we wanted. When we saw everything come together I was completely wowed by how it felt and how beautiful it looked. She had the perfect recommendations for other vendors and was so helpful and responsive when we questions. Planning a destination wedding definitely adds a layer of difficulty - we weren’t able to see our venue in person, or meet with other vendors (florist, caterer, etc) but the end result was everything we could have ever wanted, and that's entirely due to Clementine.
And MARK! He just knew exactly what we needed on the day of our wedding. I was so touched by the care he took, and how comfortable he made everyone feel. One of the best parts of our reception was Mark taking photos of all the couples at the end of the night - totally impromptu, but so much fun and such a great memory to be able to share with all of our guests. He knew exactly how to capture all of the important details without intruding on the special moments, and made it clear throughout the day he was there for whatever we needed.
I’m so glad we chose to work with Mark and Clementine. Our day was perfect and they were such a huge part of that. If you’re getting married anywhere in the south of France - you are in the very best hands with these two." Alyssa & Ben, 2019
"Thank you so much to you both for making our day the most amazing day of our lives! The Domaine was one of the most beautiful places and impressed us even more when we arrived. Everything else from the transit and the winery, Carcassonne and of course the wedding (flowers, decor, FOOD!) was perfect.
Clémentine, you are a gifted planner and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all the work you did for us from afar, your patience, your kindness.
Mark, your humour and talent made us so at home in front of your camera. You captured such striking and emotional moments, and for that we are forever grateful. The photos are INCREDIBLE!!!
Hugs to you both and a huge, sincere thank you for all that you did." Jennifer & Christian, 2019
"Could not recommend enough! We enjoyed working with both Clémentine and Mark. The wedding planning process was calm and efficient from the first response email, pre wedding meetings and the day itself. I’m just sad we don’t get to do it all over again!! I enjoyed talking with them and for a business so busy you are still made to feel special and individual. Brilliantly done, highly organised, huge amount of knowledge/contacts and a great style." Gemma & Andy 2019
"Clementine and Mark have been amazing in planning our wedding and doing the videography. Clementine gave us complete peace of mind and was fantastic working with vendors and ironing out the creases. Problems were solved and ideas brought to life; all aspects of our day dovetailed together perfectly. Mark has done a great job with the videography and both are super efficient and personable. Memory makers at their very best!
Clémentine - amazing, amazing, amazing. Thank you so much for being patient, resourceful, organised and just making it all happen. You made it all run so smoothly and sorted out the odd problem on the day. All from a distance and on phone and email. Sev is super happy as am I. Will happily recommend you to anyone we know who are getting married in France.
Mark - fantastic at videography. The photographer really liked Mark too and said he was fantastic to work with. I also had some good chats with him on photography etc. The bridesmaids along with a slew of others spoke highly of Mark and their interactions. An all round nice guy!" Ed and Sevilay, 2018
"Mark, we wanted to write a quick note to you to say thank you for all your help on the day. Every single one of our guests have said how personable you were. We, and they, have never known such interaction with a photographer at a wedding before – but for all the very best reasons, it did feel like you were one of the guests and that they were disappointed you didn’t stay for breakfast the next morning!!! At no point was your contact ever taken as intrusion or inappropriate, instead, we were nothing but grateful for every comment, suggestion and every direction you gave.
Karl and I are very appreciative for all of your help, especially that which was well outside of the scope of your job – including helping deal with the celebrant and the caterer! We really felt having you there was an absolute bonus, and very, very pleased that you were prepared to just jump in and help. We really do feel it made a difference." Amy & Karl, 2019
"Our wedding in France would not have been possible without Clémentine! From the start everything was so well organised and planned, Clémentine has great knowledge of the whole process and suppliers who can deliver exactly what you require. She ensured each part of the day was thought about in great detail and gave lots of support and guidance, understanding the look and feel of what we wanted to create. Everything on the day went exactly to plan and we couldn’t of been happier with the styling and planning!" Emily & Chris, 2019
"Clementine was brilliant! The planning process was never a stress with her support. She really understood what we had in mind for our wedding, and really created everything we invisioned and more, her attention to detail and creative ways of using resources was just amazing. Our experience was incredibly special not only for us but for our guests too! As someone who isn't keen on having my photos taken Mark made it as comfortable as possible and for the most part he blended in as if he was a guest! Such a great experience!" Rebecca & Rob, 2019
"We were SO impressed by Mark's hustle and constant attention. Thank you especially for making the call on Golden Hour - if it weren't for you I think we would have missed that window of opportunity before dinner was served. And that little 30-40 minutes was a really special moment for Ollie and I - one of our favorites from the wedding and one that we'll never forget. Thank you for giving us that moment." Megan & Ollie, 2019
"Awardweddings did an amazing job handling complicated arrangements in France. Clementine was exceptionally efficient at managing the whole process, from the catering, through to decoration and entertainment, and most importantly organised a beautiful church celebration. Mark took stunning photos, he has great eye and is extremely passionate about his work. They make a fantastic team and we really enjoyed getting to know them." Kathryn & Ed, 2018
"Awardweddings have been invaluable in supporting our first year in the French wedding market. Mark and Clementine's knowledge and experience is second to none and their advice has been key in securing clients. The wedding package they tailored for us matched our vision for the chateau with the market they know so very well. The inspiration shoot they designed was absolutely stunning. They were able to secure contributions from the best possible local suppliers and the outcome was absolutely beautiful. Mark's photogrpahs and Clementine's beautiful styling have been fundamental to our success in this first year.
I would highly recommend this delightful husband and wife team to anyone starting out in the market and look forward to working with them and our new clients in the future." Owners, Chateau St Michel, 2019
"Clementine was amazing! Every step of organising our wedding was made so much easier and more efficent by her! Her local knowledge of venues, suppliers etc. was incredible and with her recommendations we ended up with spectacular suppliers for our wedding who were very good value, reliable and ultimately did a great job. On our wedding day Clementine was a god send for making sure that everything ran smoothly and no one bothered myself or the groom with questions. I would highly recommend her to everyone!" Natasha and Nick, 2019
"We worked with Clementine for just under a year to plan and deliver our wedding at Chateau St Michel in October this year. From engaging and dealing with local suppliers, styling and designing a day that was just perfect for us...right through to calming words and reassurance when they were needed Clem and her team really delivered. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend them." Andrew & Gavin, 2019
"I highly recommend Clementine, anything we dreamt of for our wedding, she made it happen. She replied instantly to all my emails and communicated every detail with us making sure we were happy with everything. As we're living in Ireland and getting married in France, we needed someone who we could trust and Clémentine was amazing from beginning to end. The day ran so smoothly without any issues, she even made sure we didn't miss the incredible sunset that evening. It is a day I'll never forget." Anna-Leigh and Paul, 2018
"With the help of Clémentine, we had the small, intimate destination wedding of our dreams. The whole day was planned perfectly and the proposed vendors were all well informed on how everything should look. Her English is outstanding, and her communication through email and in person is immaculate, which is of paramount importance for planning a wedding from a distance. Her professionalism and kindness ensured a stress-free wedding for us". Anneleen & Victor
"Dearest Clémentine, thank you so so much for everything and for organising the most incredible and perfect weekend of our lives. It was honestly perfection and we can not thank you enough.

Mark was amazing and was with us the full day, He wasn't intrusive at all and delivered the style of photos we wanted. I'm not a natural in front of the camera but he gave good advise and guidance so I was able to relax and just enjoy it. Great guy and the photos look amazing, he captured the day beautifully."

"All I can say is book her! Clementine was absolutely incredible every step of the way. She was so attentive to every detail and completely gave us the relaxed, rustic wedding we were after.
It could have been so tough planning a wedding in France when we don’t speak the language, didn’t know the area, and didn’t have a clue about planning a wedding! Clementine sorted everything for us and we fully trusted her. Her organisation and quick responses to emails made us feel like we knew what was happening at all times and she was definitely worth every penny. She found us a selection of trusted suppliers to work with and they were all incredible value for money. All our friends and family commented on how amazing the wedding week was and how relaxed we both were.
Trust Clementine. She was incredible and I think because we completely trusted her, we had a relaxed process - not only in France but in the build up to it. She made spreadsheets with everything on and knew exactly what she was doing to work in our budget.
Also, Mark was our photographer and he was fantastic and captured our day perfectly." Emma & Adam

Mais lorsque mon mari et moi avons décidé de renouveler nos voeux pour nos 10 ans de mariage, c'est tout naturellement que nous nous sommes adressés à Mark. Et le résultat a été à la hauteur de nos attentes : des clichés magnifiques qui traduisent l'émotion et la magie du moment. Clémentine et Mark ont organisé cette journée à la perfection avec des petites surprises. Mark a été très généreux dans le temps consacré à ce shooting photo.

‘J’ai rencontré Clémentine et Mark Ward lors de mariages qui se sont déroulés au Domaine du Beyssac. En plus des compétences photographiques de Mark et des compétences organisationnelles de Clémentine, j’ai rencontré deux êtres sensibles, à l’écoute, compréhensifs, conscients du moment unique qu’ils accompagnent avec douceur, imagination et professionnalisme. Clémentine et Mark sont de belles personnes que je recommande vivement. En un mot, je dirai qu’ ils font admirablement leur métier avec Amour.’ - Sylvie Sicamois, Propriétaire du Domaine du Beyssac
