“We are so very pleased with Blanca for our celebrant for our Paris, France wedding! She is professional, thoughtful, articulate, well spoken, prompt, flexible, organized, and easy to communicate with. She put a lot of thought and time into preparing our ceremony and truly made it be a reflection of our love, devotion, and commitment for each other. She provided a beautiful certificate. We will treasure it for the rest of our lives, and remember her and our special day when we look at it!! Thank you, Blanca! Lynn and Eddie.”

Blanca is a professional, sweet, wedding officiant with a wide experience in multicultural celebrations. She adapts easily to translate each couple’s needs, expectations and personality to create the perfect  wedding ceremony. Her ability to speak fluently three languages (english, french and spanish), gives her the opportunity to reach couples from several nationalities.

Her passion for wedding celebrations started back in 2014 in Riviera Maya, Mexico. She had the opportunity to conduct over 150 successful wedding ceremonies.  

Following her heart, she established herself in Bordeaux in 2016 where she continues to work closely with couples that are looking for a lifetime memory in the South-West France and abroad.

Un grand merci Blanca d’avoir célébré notre mariage et pour ton aide précieuse lors de la préparation de la cérémonie. Cette dernière a été très émouvante et restera à jamais gravée dans notre mémoire. Love, NKOL” Cabane Bartherotte, Lège-Cap-Ferret, France.

Blanca will take time to get to know you and your special story. She will ensure that every detail is taken in consideration: from the preparation of your unique and personalized speech, your vows, the music, the entry, rings, she will be there for you each step of the way!

She will also arrive at least one hour before the ceremony to revise all last minute details that could arise as her commitment is that you’re happy and at ease on the most important day of your lives.

In Bordeaux and the Aquitaine Area, France as well as in Europe, there are hundreds of gorgeous venues to say “I DO”.  What about getting married at a french romantic château in the middle of a gorgeous vineyard in the South West France? Maybe you would like the an elopement in the romantic Eiffel Tower to commemorate your love with a private celebration.  The possibilities are endless! Blanca is available to travel throughout France and Europe. 

We are so happy with the way you organized the ceremony-it was really personal, funny and emotional and we couldn’t have asked for a better officiant.We keep replaying the ceremony in our minds and the guests have been raving about how beautiful the ceremony was so Thank you!! We really appreciate all of your hard work and dedication to making our ceremony so perfect. We are super happy and wish we could do it all over again.” Rosanna & Bryn,  Château d’Auros, FRANCE.

Professionnelle et pointilleuse, elle fut un don du ciel
Professional and caring… she was godsend !

Au début, nous étions heureux d’avoir trouvé quelqu’un qui parle anglais et français à Bordeaux, mais elle était tellement plus qu’un simple célébrant bilingue. De notre première réunion au jour du mariage, elle nous a guidés tout au long du processus et a rendu notre cérémonie vraiment spéciale. Nous avons senti qu’elle était vraiment passionnée par ce travail et qu’il était très facile de travailler avec elle. Même si nous planifions le mariage depuis Singapour, elle répondait toujours rapidement à nos e-mails et la communication n’a jamais un problème.
Ma famille ne parlait pas anglais / français, alors Blanca a fait un travail formidable en travaillant avec mon ami pour s’assurer que tous les éléments clés étaient également traduits en coréen, afin que ma famille ne manque rien. Nous avons eu des changements de dernière minute malheureux, mais Blanca a géré cela de manière très professionnelle.

Tous nos invités ont été impressionnés par notre cérémonie et ont félicité le célébrant. Nous nous sentons chanceux de l’avoir trouvée et recommanderions son service à tous les couples nouvellement engagés !


At first we were just happy to have found someone who speaks both English and French in Bordeaux, but she was SO MUCH MORE than just a bilingual officiant. From our first meeting to the wedding day, she guided us through the whole process and made our ceremony feel really special. We felt that she was genuinely passionate about this work and she was very easy to work with. Even though we were planning the wedding from Singapore, she was always quick to reply to our emails and communication was never a problem.

My family didn’t speak English/French, so Blanca did amazing job working with my friend to make sure all key parts were also translated in Korean, so my family wouldn’t miss anything. We had some unfortunate last minute changes, but Blanca handled it super professionally.

All our guests were impressed with our ceremony and complimented the officiant. We feel lucky to have found her and would recommend her service to all newly engaged couples !

D & M, Château Pontet d’Eyrans

This stunning couple met in 2012 in Italy and fell in love immediately. Their connection was so strong, that it didn’t know any distance. After spending days talking through skype and texting to each other to keep their relationship alive, Danielle decided moved to Bordeaux to be with Matthieu and also to learn some french. Falling in love was easy living in a city surrounded by gorgeous vineyards with excellent wine, as Matthieu is an sommelier.

Danielle and Matthieu made a compromise  to each other in order to be together a few years later and decided to move to Florida where they reside nowadays.

They picked the Château Pontet d’Eyrans for their wedding day as Matthieu’s family lives in the area… and of course, who wouldn’t want to get married in this fairy tail venue? This château is by far, one of my favorite places to celebrate love in the South West France. The surroundings are magnificent plus the owners are very easy going.

Danielle contacted me just a couple months before their wedding  as she wanted to get married at the local church but it was too complicated.

We exchanged a couple of skype calls in order for me to know their story better to write the perfect speech for them. Both are such beautiful people inside and out. The planning for the ceremony went very smooth, they just wanted to have a light hearted bilingual ceremony.

They opted to have an “unplugged wedding ceremony ” to ensure that everyone shared this special moment with them instead of looking through their phones. The ceremony was beautiful, filled with joys and love from all their friends and family.

Just a little after the ceremony finished, the sun came out just in time for the stunning photoshoot they had by the talented Ledia Tashi Photography. 

Thank you Danielle and Matthieu for your trust and kindness.


I recommend Blanca to all future bride and grooms! Our wedding would not have been as special as it was without Blanca. First, she responded to my message on Facebook right away. We spoke on the phone the next day to talk about Mathieu and I and what we wanted for our ceremony. She also sent me questions on e-mail. Blanca is very passionate about her profession. I planned our wedding from America, so it was not easy with certain vendors, but Blanca was the best person to work with. We had a franco-american marriage, so half of the guests spoke english and the other half spoke french. She created a ceremony where everyone could understand. It was so amazing! Every sentence she spoke in English she also spoke in French. The guests were so pleased. Her speech was very beautiful and emotional; everyone loved it. Thank you so much Blanca 

FR. Je recommande Blanca à tous les futurs mariés! Notre mariage n’aurait pas été aussi spécial que jamais sans Blanca. D’abord, elle a répondu à mon message sur Facebook tout de suite. Nous avons parlé au téléphone le lendemain pour parler de Mathieu et moi et de ce que nous voulions pour notre cérémonie. Elle m’a également envoyé des questions par e-mail. Blanca est très passionnée par sa profession. J’ai organisé notre mariage d’Amérique, donc ce n’était pas facile avec certains vendeurs, mais Blanca était la meilleure personne avec qui travailler. Nous avons eu un mariage franco-américain, donc la moitié des invités ont parlé anglais et l’autre moitié parlait français. Elle a créé une cérémonie où tout le monde pouvait comprendre. C’était tellement incroyable! Chaque phrase qu’elle a parlé en anglais, elle a également parlé en français. Les invités étaient très heureux.  Son discours était très beau et émotif; tout le monde l’aimait. Merci beaucoup Blanca
