Kirsty & Alex

Living in Abu Dhabi and getting married in Courchevel 1850 sounds like no easy task, however Monica and team made the whole process an enjoyable and seamless process. She was always on hand to answer any queries and provided only the best suppliers. Thank you for finding us our dream wedding venue and creating such a memorable & magical wedding. My husband and I had the most incredible few days of our lives thanks to @Haute Wedding. Thank you again Monica, we really appreciate the amount of effort you put into making our wedding....

Lorna & John

Dear Monica & Team, Thank you, sincerely, for helping us to have the best day possible when we got married! From the first time we met you in Feb 2016 we were convinced that you are the best we were going to find! Your professionalism, honestly, and experience were clear, alongside your warm and welcoming personality. You were frank about what we should and shouldn't focus our energy on, which we hugely appreciated - given we had no clue what were doing and we hired you exactly for that! You didn't disappoint. We never felt like we....

Elvire & Carlos

Dear Monica and Estelle, thank you for our wonderful wedding! Thank you for making our vision a reality and an AMAZING one at that! Our wedding was everything and more! It was just so beautiful to see all the effort we put come to such a magical conclusion! Everyone had a blast and so did we! Estelle, you did such a wonderful job that nothing was missed. Carlos and I would like to personally say thank you for everything! It's the details that make everything and we really appreciated you being so available! It was a magical day....

Laura & David

A huge THANK YOU to Estelle for helping us organize the wedding of our dreams. We reached out to Haute Wedding with a vague idea of a wedding somewhere in the mountains, and Estelle took it from there. She found us the absolutely perfect venue in Megève, organised all the suppliers for us, and kept in touch throughout the months to make sure we were always on track. Most importantly, however, she was always a complete joy to work with. We always felt like she 'got' our vision and was able to build on it. We weren't sure at first....

Paul & Hua Yu

When we initially chose Chamonix as our destination, we (well just Paul really) didn't think a wedding planner was necessary - Paul speaks French and has family nearby that we could rely on. However, a quick chat with Monica helped us understand the time, level of planning and attention to detail required to make a good wedding work, especially as we live in Shanghai. Combine this with the stress weddings invariably put on family and the cost seemed much more manageable. The planning procedure itself was very smooth. Monica provided....

Jennifer & André Elopement on Skis

While my wedding was very intimate, eloping to France from the USA without any guests, The Haute Weddings team treated me and my day as special as any other grand wedding affair. Monica quickly put together a perfect ski ceremony and private dinner with little input from me. somehow she knew just what to assemble to make for a private and special ski nuptial for me and my groom. Coming from the USA, I especially appreciated her choosing the location (beautiful and adventurous just as I wanted) sourcing the flowers, photographer,....

Jennifer & Tom

Thank you so much Estelle and Haute Wedding for everything you did for our wedding. We had the most incredible day of our lives and everything was perfect. Your support, and local insights were really useful and helped us plan the wedding we wanted. On the day, we both felt so relaxed and could really love every minute of the day as we knew we were in same hands. Thank you so much for being exceptional - even at 2am - it meant so much to us and we would recommend Haute Wedding to anyone! Much love, Jen and Tom

Kimberley & Tommy

Dear Estelle We don't even know where to start to say thankyou to Estelle and the team at Haute Weddings for being our amazing wedding coordinators. We absolutely could not have done it without you all- right from the very beginning you were amazing with suggestions, ideas and practical support. You worked so hard on our behalf coordinating with the hotel and church and our wonderful choir! It was a weight off our shoulders on the day knowing that Estelle would be there to organise and sort and smile! Our reception room looked....

Hollie & Mat

Dear Monica, We simply can’t thank you enough for helping us plan the wedding of our dreams. Right from the word go you really got to know us; listening to our likes and dislikes, who we are as people and how we wanted our wedding to be, sometimes I think you even knew what we wanted before we did! But it was that care and attention that meant every little detail of our day was so very personal and relevant to us as a couple. Despite some challenges along the way, you were the ultimate professional, and your positivity was quite....

Katy & Romain

Dear Estelle, Thank YOU SO MUCH... For all your help for our wedding and brunch!! We had an amazing weekend and your help in the run-up to and on the weekend really let us (especially Katy :)) relax an enjoy the moment. Everything was perfect!! xx Katy & Romain


Melissa & Will

Dear Monica, Well, what a wedding! And it was pretty much down to you (with a little help from us :)). Thank you SO much for all your help with the planning, we would not have been able to do it with you, and we are not joking!! It would have been impossible! There were some dramas involved and you helped us get through it all to create the most spectacular of day up the mountain for us.You even re-directed a snow plough during the ceremony!! We will never forget the beautiful wedding day you created for us. Love, Mr. & Mrs. Thomas xx


Olga & Darren

There is a very good reason why people need wedding planners and, as much as Darren and I thought we were top planners, there is no way we could have done everything without Estelle's help. There were a lot of things we didn't even think about or were done much better, more reliably and efficiently by the Haute Weddings team than we could have ever done. Having Estelle looking after us meant we were able to concentrate on more enjoyable parts of the preparation and enjoy the big day knowing that we are in good hands! Thank you so much....

Phil & Katie

When planning our wedding the first thing that Katie and I agreed on was that we didn't want to get married in the UK. After hours of trawling the Internet we kept coming back to the Haute Wedding website and we were really drawn in by some of the ideas on the inspiration section. After a few emails and calls with Estelle we decided to do a classic Chamonix wedding. Having only been to Chamonix once before, a long time ago, we relied on Estelle for everything! She gave us lots of options for every part of the wedding including....

Susanna & Christian

Dear Estelle, We just wanted to thank you for all that you did to bring our wedding weekend to life in Chamonix. Our wedding felt truly magical and was far better than we could have ever imagined which is a testament to all of your hard work during the run up and your organizational skills on the day! Friends and family have been raving about the beautiful location, delicious food, fantastic atmosphere and seamless flow which allowed us to just relax and enjoy being a part of it all too. You enthusiastically embraced our random....

Eric & seaman

Dear Monica, we would like to say thank you for helping us on our wedding. I believe it is not common for Hong Kong people to have their big day miles away from their hometown, but Seaman and I still want to have a wedding ceremony in South of France as we love this place so much. At the beginning we were so frustrated as we haven't received positive feedback from other planner because of the the language barrier (we cannot speak French). You cannot imagine how happy we were when we received the active response from Haute Wedding. It....

Ingrid& Michael

When we first decided to have our wedding in the South of France, our goal was to have an intimate destination event, where the destination did most of the work. What we didn’t realize was that even if the destination was doing most of the work, that still left a lot of work for us to do! Fortunately, Monica came to the rescue. There are a million details to consider even after you choose all of your venues, vendors, and your schedule and even though we are a pretty organized couple, Monica helped us stay on top of everything....

Martine & Tom

Dear Estelle, thank you so much for all the support. Your effort and ideas made our wedding perfect. You have been very flexible, professional, friendly and supportive. Without you the wedding would have been much more stressful; you took away all the tension during the day. And off course you saved us, by getting the cake, we forgot to pick up... Thanks a lot and we wish you all the best! Kind regards Martine and Tom

Carla & Alistair

How difficult can it be to organise a wedding? My beautiful wife and I had the most amazing wedding we could ever have dreamed of. It far exceeded our expectations and from what we have heard every single person who attended was blown away by the entire day. This was all possible due to the incredible work of Haute Wedding and in particular our wonderful wedding planner, Monica. The title of the review is the exact response I gave to my wife when she mentioned the possibility of a wedding planner. In the end she convinced me....

Amanda & Duncan

Dear Monica and the Haute Wedding Team, As I am writing this both Duncan and I are suffering from post wedding day depression in the best possible way. If we could relive every moment, we would do so in a heartbeat. Thank you for helping us create the best day of our lives! You were so amazing in ensuring that everything ran smoothly and as a result, we were totally stress free. Every little thing was thought of and instead of feeling contrived, our guests felt that it was all genuine and special. Thank you so much for pointing us in....

Carla & Mike

Being the excellent potential husband I was, I decided the best idea was to let my future wife organise the wedding. As it transpired, that was too much for one person to do; it's not simple trying to do so in Britain, it was going to be near enough impossible doing it several hundred miles remotely. Haute Wedding already knew all the people we would have been trying to contact in the area such as the venues, florist, baker, hairdressers etc and the amount of time and money they saved us in negotiating deals with these companies....

Dear Estelle, Anna and all the team at Haute Wedding! A week on and we are still on a post wedding come down but the memories of our Wedding Day (weekend) immediately lift our spirits back up! It’s such a cliché but we really did have the best day of our lives and although we planned every detail with you it was still better than we ever imagined it could be. We had lots of comments in the lead up to our big day from people saying how calm we both were, In truth we were so relaxed about the whole thing because we were working with....

Emma & Uli

Uli & I wanted to say once again how hugely grateful we are for everything you did to save our wedding day! It turned out to be everything we could have imagined despite all the drama and we enjoyed ourselves so so much. You were of course amazing from start to finish and we couldn' thank you enough for the very important role that you played. We are now very happily married and will never forget our very special wedding planner. Thanks a million again!!! xxx Emma & Uli


Shaun & Maria: French Riviera Wedding

Its a commonly known fact that doctors make the worst patients. The same applies to wedding planners and caterers: we make terrible brides & grooms. We have seen so many events that most people would assume we have a clear vision of what we want, but its quite the opposite, we want it all. So then how do you choose a venue? a caterer? a planner? Quite simply, by analyzing their personalities... Out of all the wedding planners that I talked to, I choose Monica because I knew right from the start that she loved what she does. Many....

We could not have done this day without you. I wanted to thank you so much for all of you help, support, ideas and enthusiasm throughout the process. The day would not have been half of as successful without you - and with you taking the lead on everything, Benoit and I were really able to relax and enjoy our friends and family. I was not stressed at all!! (a rarity) And Benoit was able to do everything that he wanted to with our family and friends, including Char A Voile and a bike ride the morning of the wedding. My parents wanted....

Kathleen & Guillaume

Our wedding was in the beautiful and quaint city, Chamonix. Our wedding requirements were complex and the date was only 9 months out. In addition, I have high expectations of planners because I am a planner myself. I'm a Program Manager at a big consulting firm in the US. After interviewing a considerable amount of companies I decided to work with Haute Wedding. Working with them was really easy! They are professional, organized, transparent, and prompt. They listened carefully to what we asked for and delivered on their promises. As....

Anya & Matt

We've always known we wanted to hold our wedding in Chamonix. Since our first trip there; not even a year into our relationship, we fell in love with the skiing, apres-ski and everything in between. The French Alps are the crossroads of warm alpine heartiness, breathtaking mountain vistas and sophisticated French style - where better to have a wedding. Unfortunately, the benefit of knowing exactly where you want celebrate your big day comes with the challenges of planning it. Add to it living a thousand miles away and a mastery of the....

Sarah & Mike - Australia

As Australians recently engaged and newly living abroad, we were challenged by how to make the most of the unique snow and travel opportunities in our year away as well as wanting to share our dream day with family and friends near and far. A destination wedding in the stunning winter setting of the French Alps was a perfect fit. As a bride to be away from the familarity and supports of home, planning a wedding in a foreign country contending with language barriers and travel logistics for 40 Australians largely unfamiliar with a....

Aylin & Can

After I proposed to my now loving husband J , he wanted to take the lead in organizing the wedding. We always knew that we wanted a destination wedding lasting about 2 days with our closest friends. So he started to look for some destinations as well as a wedding planner. He made the best choice finding Anna. From the moment we met with Anna until the day after the wedding she worked real hard to make everything perfect. Everyone around was warning that things may go during wedding days and we should be ready for and not upset about....

As soon as we got engaged we knew that the place we wanted to be married was Chamonix. With us not being local we knew we would need a planner to assist us with our day. From the offset Monica stood out. She listened to what we wanted from our wedding day and took the time to get to know us both personally so our wedding day represented us and who we are. No detail went unnoticed and nothing was too much trouble. She completely took the stress out of the day and gave us the chance to enjoy every single moment! Her guidance, support....

Anna Marie & Ben

Every so often in life you stumble over a hidden gem and Monica at Haute Pursuit Weddings definitely wins this award. Chamonix has been our playground for the last seven years and was the obvious location for our wedding celebration. However our work commitments spread across Abu Dhabi, East Timor and Australia and a lack of french created a particular logistical challenge behind this decision. Luckily the power of google search and several emails later Monica was fully onboard to help plan and organise the big day. A regular stream....

Streisan & Jason

“We had a wedding that exceeded every possible expectation in Chamonix. Anna at Haute Weddings was a key part of the organisation and was invaluable with her strong local contacts and local language skills. Her kindness, good nature and patience as well as her professionalism and attention to detail mean that we will miss being in regular touch with her. A huge thank you from us both.” Jason & Streisan.


Jenny & Paddy

Thank you again for the flawless attention to detail that you gave to everything! It all ran so smoothly and even though its always sad when great days are over its a much better feeling reminiscing about a great day then worrying that things wont go to plan. It was so calming having you there on the day and in the lead up pulling everything together for us, we cant thank you enough. All our friends and family complimented how lovely you were to them all and couldn't praise the whole day enough. IT WAS AMAZING!! I cant believe....

Haute Weddings are professional, knowledgeable, speak fluent French, are great positive people to have around at (inevitable !) moments of stress. You can rely on them 110%. For us, choosing to marry in a foreign country, with no family out here prior to the wedding, without Haute Weddings, our day, for me (the bride !) would NOT have been enjoyable. I am a control person, a designer, naturally a ‘last-minuter’ and I have attention to detail !!!! ahhh!!! ..... .....they tell you forget *everything*, and just enjoy yourself; this, I....

The minute we knew we wanted to get married in France we realised we would need someone local to help us plan our dream wedding. Hiring Monica to help us with the planning was the best decision we made. From the outset, she found us the suppliers that were right for us - a beautifully picturesque venue, an experienced and dedicated caterer with a delicious menu, an incredibly creative florist, amongst other things. More importantly, she saved us time and money (and our sanity) by liasing with suppliers, handling the negotiations and....

We are so grateful for all your assistance prior to and on the day of our wedding.

You highlighted things that we had not thought about and helped us to organise all the fine details with such ease. Without your help, the day would not have run so smoothly and the guests would not have had such an amazing experience.

We couldn't have asked for a better person to help plan our wedding. Monica was always available to answer our questions and very quick to reply to any issue either by email or phone. During the organization stage she present us with a lot of great options, all very closely matching our requirements. In the run up to the wedding she was always at hand to be contacted and showed great local knowledge which came in a treat. On the wedding day itself she was awesome, she mixed in well with all the friends and family and just seemed like....

I am so happy to have let Haute Weddings plan my day. Our wedding was very unconventional but right from the first email, Monica listened to all my plans and she had great suggestions. After months of emailing back and forth, when we finally met in person the morning before the wedding it felt like sitting down with a good friend for a coffee. The wedding day went smooth and Monica was there every step of the way. She blended right in along with all of our friends, so well that we invited her to join us for dinner a few days....

Andrew & Mary Elizabeth

We originally took on the task ourselves of planning our wedding in the Chamonix Valley, but as we live in Geneva and were not intimately familiar with the Chamonix Valley vendors, we quickly saw the value in seeking help from Haute Weddings. Words cannot do justice to how grateful we are for Monica’s help with putting the finishing touches on our wedding preparations and coordinating the day seamlessly. Without Monica’s connections and local knowledge of the valley, our wedding ceremony would have been a wash-out…. literally!
