Miranda Welch and Vincent Guezingar
How did you meet each-other?Miranda and I met in 2010 at the University of Queensland in Brisbane, Australia. We have followed the same master of integrated water management.We quickly became very close to our common tastes for travel, foreign languages and sport.That year we both played football in the same club!After Australia, we lived together in Peru, Bulgaria and New Caledonia.How / where did he propose?I made my request for a romantic weekend where we celebrated the four years of our meeting. We had decided to go on one of those little islands paradisiac typical of New Caledonia, the islet Tenia.At sunset on the ocean, everything was ready, the ring was in my pocket, the bottle of champagne in the cooler and the beach was almost deserted.

A very pleasant surprise then occurred: about twenty baby turtlesLeaving their nests to reach the sea for the first time, a rare sight even in New Caledonia. It was magical ! A few minutes later, I made my proposal. Preparing for marriage: your feelings, obstacles, stress, how did you Found the venue? Etc … Anything that may seem relevant to you! The preparations took place under special conditions: we organized a marriage in Brittany while we were in the opposite region, in Noumea. Miranda even moved to Sydney, Australia to start a new job only five months before D-day. My parents helped us find the place by visiting three locations we had pre-selected by checking out on the internet. For the rest, we used the Internet and Skype a lot to talk to service providers. The wedding industry is very developed on the net and it is very easy to find advice, lists of service providers, user comments etc …We also did a lot of shopping online, whether it’s for champagne, wine, dragees or decoration. In the end, that part was not as difficult as one might have imagined. By doing it in advance and devoting time to it, one avoids quite a lot of stress. In the days before the ceremony, the help of the family and friends is welcome because we are faced with a lot of little things to settle.The main difficulty surely resided in the fact that we organized a wedding Franco-Australian by trying to respect the two cultures and the expectations of the guests From different countries. During the preparation, we had to make a number of Compromise and explain our choices to our respective families. My advice for a good preparation would be to put on the paper the list of things to With deadlines, and then to devote regular time to Tasks and to remove them from the list. The weeks preceding the ceremony are devoted to the details so it is better to have settled the main (providers, place, food and Beverage) at least two months before the date.D-Day: your feelings, feelings etc …On D-Day, you have to act as if you were a guest of your own wedding so no more Stressful question with preparations and last minute details! By delegating to the witnesses and the family, one saves another stress. We were both a little nervous, but especially happy to be there after months of preparation. Our mindset was to try to make the most of a day Very quickly. The arrival on the scene is particularly charged with emotion because we see many people who are dear to us in one fell swoop and realize that they came expressly for us. This is a very special moment. Then comes the ceremony that is usually well Framed, allowing to be transported and appreciate the moment at its right value. Tears can flow easily! The few hours between the ceremony and the dinner, dedicated to the photos and the cocktail, really allowed us to unwind. The main thing being done, we could take full advantage of the guests. As a married couple, we feel really privileged because we know all the guests or almost, we can go from one group to another as we see fit and we only receive positive messages. This is what one can call “being on a cloud”. During dinner, we still had to make the speeches and the first dance, but with all the adrenaline received during the day, we could not even get nervous! The advice I will give for D-Day is to allow for once to think of yourself first and to do according to your desires. If there is a day when this should be allowed, it is this one! And of course, you have to let things unfold naturally and let go of the joysticks Providers
