An excellent, first class service from Nicole and her team. Very efficient, user-friendly and knew all the suppliers. Would highly recommend this company.

From: Sarah & Simon - Wedding on July 21st, 2017  - English

Nicole is probably the best wedding planner ever. I was planning our French wedding whilst living in Australia and travelling South America and she pulled it all together amazingly. She took all of my crazy ideas (Gin bar, a moroccan shisha tent, Vietnamese Food Truck) and made them happen with so much ease. She is incredibly organised, cheerful, resourceful and a really lovely person. And the vendors she has as contacts were all absolutely top notch: florist, caterer, photographer, musicians. Everything exceeded our expectations on the day and Nicole was a huge part of that. Thank you Nicole for being awesome! x x x x x x

Nicole helped us plan our wedding from the other side of the world! She was always friendly and approachable, and made herself available to address any concerns we had. On the big day she was cool, calm and collected, nothing was an issue and her main priority was making sure we were happy and relaxed while she handled the logistics. What more could you want in a planner?! Thank you Nicole!

From: Courtney & Ben - Wedding on July 1st, 2017 - American & English

What can we say?! Nicole is an amazing absolutely wedding planner. She jokes but she really does become your official third wheel in the run up to the wedding. We were planning an international wedding with guests coming from 5 different continents while we were living abroad as well - Nicole managed every request with ease. She was always there to remind us with our next steps too :) To be honest, the whole process was fun with Nicole there. She was willing to accommodate all of our requests including the fact that it was actually a three day extravaganza. Nicole was there for every moment during the week before and the weekend for set-up and management on the day. We were wowed by her energy and organisational skills. (The guys were also amazed by her strength - moving a tent with all of them that they could barely lift!) She puts her all into her work! Nicole took our ideas and amazed us with the best wedding weekend we could have ever imagined! Thank you so much! (Also big thanks to Fabien too!)

Nicole, Thank you for all that you have done.  You have made this a breeze.  I'm so thankful that you were part of this season.  You are quick, and always willing to go the extra mile.  We APPRECIATE YOU!

From: Kirsty & Ben - Wedding on July 16th, 2016 - English 

We had the most wonderful wedding and cannot thank you enough! We’re so grateful for everything you did for us ​​​​​​. Truly nothing could have been improved upon and we have such amazing memories to treasure, thank you so much for everything.

From: Joanna & Maurits - Wedding on June 4th, 2016 - English & Dutch 

It is always hard to find a wedding planner that you trust and makes you feel like your wedding is the only one that they are organising. A wedding planner that can show a personal dedication and an invested interest in delivering your perfect day the way you want it. This is your day and only you know how you want it to be.

Well we found this with Nicole Tournois, our wedding planner.  She was great to work with and took the stress out of planning a wedding.  Nicole understood what we wanted, gave us her full guidance, expertise and attention and helped make our perfect day come to life. We really could not have managed all the logistics, planning and details without her. We had a 139 guests from 12 different countries, organising a wedding from a different country in a different language, with hectic work lives. Not only is she a great wedding planner but she is a lovely person with a heart of gold, understanding and very thoughtful, with a friendship that has also grown out of it! Nicole was the silent force on our wedding day and we would highly recommend her to anyone organising a wedding in France #pureexpressionevents.com #wedminspiration

From : Florie-Anne & Julien's Parents - Wedding on August 8th, 2015 - English & French 

Chère Nicole, Nous vous remercions vivement de nous avoir aidé pour le mariage de notre fille.  Nous n'avions pas à nos côtés un prestataire mais une aime de confiance qui nous à guidés, épaulés, conseillés avec bonne humeur et efficacité.  Grace à votre présence, nous avons pu profiter de ce Grand Jour!

From : Alizée & Matthieu- Wedding on September 20th, 2014 - French

Nicole c'est.... une belle rencontre ! Elle nous a beaucoup aidé pendant les préparatifs et sa présence le Jour J nous a vraiment soulagé.  Grâce à elle nous avions l'esprit libre et nous avons pu profiter de chaque moment. Nicole est très professionnelle, méthodique, patiente et très disponible, elle conseille également de supers prestataires : il n'y a pas à dire le mariage c'est son domaine !!
Un grand merci à toi Nicole pour ton soutien, pour nous avoir rassuré et surtout d'avoir permis que cette journée magique reste inoubliable !
.....
Nicole Tournois est une wedding planner hors pair, tout sera fait pour que vous profitiez à fond du jour J et que tout se déroule sans accroc. Elle est très disponible, très réactive et anticipe plein de petits détails (elle trouvera la petite épingle à nourrice pour votre robe, rajoutera des bougies manquantes...). Elle gérera tous vos prestataires, la décoration... Vous pouvez lui confier votre grand jour sans soucis !

From: Kat & Alex - Wedding on August 23rd, 2014 - English

There is no doubt that without Nicole our wedding wouldn't have been the success that it was. She provided us with a recommended list of caterers, photographers and bands from which to choose from. She then helped set up initial meetings, sort out the paperwork and co-ordinate meetings once we had made our choice. She also kept on top of payments due and chasing any outstanding queries. Nicole also helped with the smaller details - sourcing pom poms to decorate the marquee, building a wedding arch and buying Orangina bottles. No request was too much for her. She did everything with a smile and a great sense of humour... something that is essential when planning a wedding! It was a pleasure to work with Nicole and our guests are still raving about the food and music which were great recommendations from her. Thank you Nicole for all your hard work xx

From : Erika & Adam - Wedding on August 30th, 2014 - American & English 

Nicole is professional, kind hearted, supportive, very responsible, practical re: logistics and all-around kind of girl. Her ability to speak both fluent French & English while negotiating cultural needs of an English/American wedding in France is outstanding! Also, her connections to Music  rocked our wedding from dust to dawn! Best decision ever. Thank you Nicole for this amazing journey!

From : Amélie & Jérémy - Wedding on May 28th, 2014 - French 

Nicole Tournois est vraiment à l'écoute. Elle n'a pas un type de mariage en tête à faire appliquer à tous les mariés. Nous avions besoin d'une coordination le Jour J et notre mariage avait une décoration simple. Elle n'a jamais jugé, contrairement aux autres professionnelles avec lesquelles nous avons été en contact.
Elle a un esprit pratique et méthodique très très utile et sa présence a été très rassurante.
Je garde deux souvenirs principaux : Nicole armée d'un torchon pour essuyer les chaises de la cérémonie laïque en extérieur, dès qu'il y avait une éclaircie, et Nicole, souriante, regardant si tout se passait bien dans la soirée.

From : Anne & Pierre - Wedding on September 21st, 2013 - Danish & French 

Excellent wedding planner, very professional and dedicated and extremely efficient. Very good suggestions from her. She was also extremely good at understanding our needs and wishes and found solutions to diverse type of problems and questions. On top, very kind person!

From : Natasha &Tanguy - Wedding on August 24th, 2013 - English & French 

From Natasha:

We hired Nicole just for the day to ensure everything ran smoothly and to coordinate all of our different vendors. Her service went above and beyond what we 'hired' her for.  She gave us invaluable tips and suggestions and patiently coordinated not only vendors but also with our family and friends who were also in contact with her. Her knowledge and professionalism is so thorough that even I, a perfectionist bride, entrusted her entirely without hesitation for lots of things, for example, decoration of the 'salle' and setting up of the arch, chairs etc for our outdoor ceremony. Our only regret is that we didn't hire her right from the start! She was an absolute star throughout the whole process. We had a beautiful wedding and this is largely thanks to her hard work and determination combined with her upbeat optimism.

From Tanguy:

Nicole nous a aidé ÉNORMÉMENT. Sans elle, notre mariage n'aurait pas été si parfait. Elle nous a proposé beaucoup d’idées, a été super proactive et surtout fait en sorte de nous enlever tout le stress possible le jour j ainsi que le mois précédant le mariage. En plus de son professionnalisme, sa créativité, sa patience et sa réactivité, Nicole possède le grand avantage de parler anglais et français ce qui nous a servi comme nous avions un mariage franco anglais! Bref, n’hésitez pas une seconde et engagez Nicole pour vous assurer que votre mariage sera parfait! Encore une fois un grand merci de nous deux pour Nicole!

 

From : Lydie & Rolland - Wedding on August 3rd, 2013 - French 

Parfaite tout simplement parfaite!! Une personne qui nous a fait vivre un rêve!

De : Guillaume & Guillaumette - Wedding on June 2nd, 2013 - French 

Nous avons fait appel à Nicole et nous avons été plus que satisfait par sa prestation. Très à l'écoute, Nicole a su cerner nos envies rapidement, nous accompagner et surtout nous soulager dans l ensemble de nos démarches. Très humaine, ultra sympathique, toujours d'humeur égale, patiente mais aussi très réactive, nous recommandons vivement ses services!
....
We faced the challenge to organize a wedding in less than 3 months and without Pure Expression Events and Nicole it would have been simply impossible. The result has been fantastic in term of quality and organization, a great moment for our families and friends. Nicole's advices and suggestions have been extremely precious while her experience and her business network did permit us to organize exactly the wedding we wanted. I truly recommend Pure Expression Events.

From: Nancy & Jason - Wedding Day: June 29, 2012 - American  

 

We visited Bordeaux in 2011 shortly after getting engaged in the United States.  We were considering a few different cities for our wedding venue, and given our affinity for Southwest France, we wanted to be certain to give Bordeaux a strong consideration for our fairytale destination wedding.

One glorious afternoon while visiting Churches south of Bordeaux, we happened upon Chateau d’Arche, a charming vineyard in Sauternes.  During our visit we met the one person that would become our dearest friend and constant supporter for the next twelve months – Nicole.

Nicole was the perfect balance of everything we were looking for in a wedding coordinator.  Her knowledge and appreciation of the local customs and culture, coupled with her understanding of our needs coming from a different country, were second to none.  Nicole’s relationships with her vendors were another critical reason our wedding was a success.  We were given many options for the food, flowers, decorations, accessories and of course the wine.  Nicole’s partners met with us whenever we needed to review the progress and discuss the next steps.  Nicole’s communication via email, Skype and phone was timely and professional, even though we had the challenge of a seven hour time difference between us. 

Nicole went above and beyond for almost a year ensuring all our guests from the United States and France were well taken care of during our three days of celebration.  Nicole’s dedication, organization, energy and commitment throughout the planning process allowed us to enjoy our wedding day without the worries of anything going overlooked.
