Barn Wedding in the Vexin | Domaine de Guerquesalle | Bakoly + Yoann
March 29, 2017
After a proposal in Canada during their holidays, Bakoly and Yoann were dreaming about their barn wedding. They found the perfect venue, near the village where Bakoly grown up, in the “Domaine de Guerquesalle”, a renoved barn lost in the fields with a big cottage to host all their friends for the weekend.
– Our favorite moment –
The first moment that comes to mind is when Yoann and I discovered each other. We had prepared ourselves on our side with our witnesses and friends and we discovered each others in an isolated place of the domain. It was a moment filled with emotion and a few tears.
The second moment was during the ceremony at the town hall. My dad being deputy mayor celebrated the wedding and it was a very intense moment. Impossible to hold back our tears (especially mine) and I can not describe how proud I was.
One of the highlights was the preparations. For our barn wedding, we rented the room of the cottage the day before which allowed us to have time to prepare everything. We also wanted to be on the wedding morning to prepare. The night before we were a dozen in the evening doing a kind of pre-party and spending time with our friends was very important to us. Just like the morning of the day. Our witnesses and friends were able to continue to install the last details and we all then prepared together, the girls on one side and the boys on the other.
