Sam is basically the Mary Poppins of weddings! We collaborated amazingly from the FaceTime call to shared Pinterest board everything was seamless.
It was stress free and fun and it was lovely to have you and Louisa as part of our event. Nothing was too much trouble and your passion for what you do absolutely shines through.
Thank you so much for helping us create and style our beautiful Chateau wedding x x

Sam and her team have been absolutely incredible and we cannot praise them enough - ever since we contracted Oui Ici to supply their beautiful Bedouin tent for our wedding vow ceremony in June she has been nothing short of amazing. Sam was always in regular contact and she and her team took all of our ideas and inspiration on board to deliver a bespoke celebration theme that matched both us as a couple and the woodland venue - creating spectacular tables, a decorated ceremony tent and much much more.
Sam and Louise worked tirelessly around the clock for several days and pulled out all the stops to make the entire venue beautiful and nothing short of stunning. They got on so well with all of the guests, and even entertained our flower girls for hours! Sam had so many helpful hints and tips and we know we would not have been able to pull off an international event like this remotely without her professional expertise. We'd like to say a HUGE THANK YOU to Sam and Louise for making our wedding vow renewal ceremony absolutely stunningly perfect.

My daughter’s wedding last Saturday at the Gîtes de Guillegorce was like a fairy tale and it was down partly to Sam. The marquée, decorations and extras were outstanding! The service Sam provided is amazing! The decorations were exactly what my daughter and son in law wanted. It is like she had known them for years!
Thank you for transforming our property into a work of art! We will hold these memories in our hearts forever.

Wow! Big thanks to Sam and her team for creating a magical, romantic feel for my big day. Sam had lots of creative ideas and suggestions that really helped me bring together my vision for our wedding. Sam has lots of helpful knowledge of the surrounding area and helped us overcome any issues that arose as the big day drew near; it was pretty stressful for us planning a wedding in France from abroad! But because of this, communication was excellent throughout the whole process which reduced our stress and worries. Oui ici services are certainly worth every penny when planning a wedding in the Charente-Maritime. Highly recommend Oui ici!

I was lucky enough to have been passed on Sam's detail in February this year, Martin and I were very busy at the time and were not overly forthcoming with wedding plans, much to the frustration of our family and friends. However, that all changed one Saturday morning when we spoke to the lovely Sam over the phone, we instantly warmed to her uplifting spirit, practical approach, no fuss attitude and creative vision.
She made everything seem so simple and easy that it no longer felt like this daunting process, and we finally felt excited to start organizing our big day (to the point where we decide to get married in under seven months time) 😁.
I would say I was a fairly relaxed bride and Sam accommodated this perfectly. I trusted her completely. she never made me feel pressured into getting something I didn't want, and more times that not, when I said "I'm nae paying that", she would agree and already be pursuing other quotes.
She was so unbelievably organised to the very last detail throughout the process, to the extent of having on-the-go stain removal wipes in her pocket in case any of the bridal party split on themselves, which came in very handy!
If you know of anybody (friend, mum, uncle, work colleague, side bae) wanting to get married in France, I would highly recommend Oui Ici ♥️.

Travel is a big part of our relationship. On a recent trip to Paris I came back with the ultimate souvenir – a fiancé!!
When it came to thinking about where we would celebrate the big day, we loved the idea of getting married in France but this always seemed like a pipe dream - organizing a wedding in another country just seemed like too huge an undertaking.
Sam had been recommended to us as 'the' woman to make our French dream a reality. From the moment we met Sam, we knew our wedding was going to be amazing. Sam lives by her motto of “Impossible, nothing” and we left that first meeting with no doubt that even if we wanted to get married next week, Sam would move mountains to make it happen the way we wanted.
When you talk to Sam it is immediately obvious that she has a genuine passion for what she does. She is meticulous in her research and planning and has a wealth of ideas to suit every style of wedding. She thinks of everything - from timings for sunsets and full moons, to where to source enough ice to chill the drinks of your many thirsty guests! Every idea we presented was thoroughly researched - nothing was too much trouble, no request too crazy. Importantly, communication with Sam has been frequent, fun, and easy. Sam has taken all of the stress and worry away to ensure we could enjoy the planning process as much as possible.
Contacting Sam was the best decision we made - other than saying ‘yes’ of course! We would highly recommend Sam’s services to anyone thinking about getting married in France - we couldn't have done this without her. Thank you Sam!
