Aymara & Giovanni,
Where do I even begin.
This weekend was a dream. Every single event went so well and we had the most beautiful weekend of our lives. All your hard work was truly incredible. The amount of time, effort and planning you put into our wedding did not go unnoticed and we will forever be grateful for you.
You are not only amazing wedding planner but amazing persons. It has been a pleasure getting to know you and we hope our relationship doesn't end here.
Love always, Aymara, Giovanni, Angela & Lucio."
Louisa & Sinan,
Thank you so much for being our wedding planners and for organising our most incredible wedding weekend!! We loved every minute of it!!
You made planning everything so easy for us, we appreciate everything you have done to help create our perfect wedding weekend that we will cherish forever.
Although we wished it had not rained! I think it ended up being even more romantic inside - all of guests felt like it was very intimate too.
The food was delicious we got so many comments on that too! So a big thank you to everyone involved!!
From my side I will miss talking to you every week!!
Wishing you both all the very very best for the future, in your personal and professional lives.
Louisa & Sinan."

You know that anythings is possible as long as you really want it and your heart fully in it !!!"
Jane & Simon
We had an absolutely wonderful wedding and many thanks for everything you did to ensure it all went so smoothly. You did an amazing job and this was noted by all my family including the wedding party. We had the time of our lives and so did the guests!!
Sad its over but we have some very special memories to look back on.
Thank you again for all you did to make it so perfect and your attention to detail throughout.

Isabelle Lomas, sister of the Bride
I hope you are well! What a fantastic weekend you organised for Alex and John. I just wanted to say thank you so much for all the planning and help not only on the day but for the whole process. It was so nice to finally meet you and you were so kind to me when I was feeling so nervous.
I hope we get to meet again in the future and I hope you got some well deserved rest after such a long evening.
It was every success and you really could see how much hard work you put in, whilst being so busy with I am sure many other projects.
Courtenay & Rick
I know that we spoke during the Wedding, but I just viewed the video and I really can’t think of any superlatives which could quite possible do justice to the weekend.
I have to say that it was the most fantastically managed event that I have ever been to and if there were any minor ‘Hiccups’ then no-one noticed and that may well be due the the professionalism that you are all your staff demonstrated throughout the whole event.
Everything from the initial welcome to the final goodbye was immaculate and made the whole Wedding a joy to be at.
I just wanted to express my heartfelt thanks for making my daughter’s wedding a day ( or days) to truly remember forever and we all cannot wipe the enormous smiles from our collective faces ( and I am not sure that I ever want to) The video is outstanding and manages to convey the sentiment and feeling of the day perfectly, and perfect is probably I word the manages to encapsulate how we al the feel the event was run…. Perfectly !
Thank you all so much, I hope that you now have a little down time for yourself as god knows you deserve every minute of it.
Karly & Taylor
It would have been impossible to navigate all the French vendors without your help - and it all went smoothly, in spite of unpredictable yet memorable events, because you were there to help. Professional, thoughtful, intimate and beautiful because of L&R! Unforgettable. Thank you!"
Lauren & Chase
Thank you for making our wedding day so special! You are are such a beautiful person - inside and out.
The phrase "thank you" doesn't reflect the gratitude we have for the time and effort you dedicated to making our wedding day so special. Our wedding exceeded our wildest dreams! I can't believe you planned an entire wedding in such a few sort weeks!!!! We will treasure the memories we created at the Chateau de la Chèvre d'Or for the lifetime.
Send our best to the team.
Clark & Palmer Wedding Films
A huge thank you right back atcha! Honestly we had such a great time and were astounded by your organising of the whole day, when asking one of our many questions we never felt like we were a burden on you even though you would have had a million other things on your mind and to have a day run so smoothly and (more importantly..) on time was an absolutely joy so thank you so much for that!
Just to reiterate how much we loved filming with you for Ryan & Cali's, easily the best planned wedding we've ever been to, we've raved about you ever since!
Thanks so much again, hopefully do it again sometime!

I really don’t know where to begin to thank you for EVERYTHING!!!!!
I couldn’t even imagine how wonderful it could be, but it exceeded all my expectations!!!
Mark and I and my family, as well as all the guests, had the most fantastic time!!!
I think the huge grin on my face for the entire week, probably told you how happy I was with everything. But in case you weren’t sure, I could not have been happier!!!
THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!! Your energy and diligence and patience are inspiring:))
We send you our best,
Aran & Mark"
Stephanie & Mario
Three months ago we were able to celebrate our wedding in the midst of France. We and our guests had a blast!
We would like to thank you from our hearts for your support in making our stay at the Château la Durantie so smooth, pleasant and unforgettable. We, our families and our guests from Switzerland and the United States will remember these three days for a long long time to come.
All the best for you and your loved ones.

Our wish for a perfect wedding came true!! It really was beyond our expectations and we were so happy with everything. Jennifer, thank you so much for your hard work, attention to detail, patience and energy! You were a fantastic planner, one we will recommend. Next time we’re in Cannes, we will have to meet for coffee.
Lots of love,
Liz and Jonathan"
Catherine & Dan
Thank you so much for your hard work, patience and wonderful advice throughout- we couldn’t have made a better choice! The details you have helped us to incorporate as well (as instigating so much of it) have really made all the difference and made this a wedding we are immensely proud of!
Many, many thanks again and all our best wishes,
Catherine and Dan"
Jeffrey & Karena
L&R team, we both had our minds set on the L&R team, and we had no
regrets. Kerry works very efficiently, and ensures that every little
detail is taken care of. Looking back to the whole experience, I don't
think we could have done anything better, so I would say Kerry and her
team created the perfect wedding for the both of us. From finding the
location, lining up the decorators, florists, photographer, band,
videographer, caterer, etc....everything was thought of and taken care
before we even had to worry about it. We both highly recommend the L&R
Nadine & Serge
Thank you for a magical day, you did make our dream come true! You gave us, our family and friends, the chance to live a fairy tale for one day!
Jennifer, thank you for your patience, commitment and hard work on a daily basis, for 10 consecutive months. You are a very professional, dedicated and passionate wedding planner. We were very fortunate to have had the chance to work with you. Looking back at the day, we are very proud of what we have achieved together.
All your brides and grooms to be are very lucky to be working with you. We wish you all the best in the future projects. We do hope to meet again, over a cup of coffee in Paris, when you are around; or over a drink in Cannes, when we will be there next.
Nadine and Serge
Anne-Sophie & Gerald
Nicky & Daniel
Jennifer’s vendor recommendations were absolutely brilliant. We were always given an excellent short-list whether that be for catering, entertainment, flowers, make-up, etc. So you knew they’d done exhaustive groundwork in finding the perfect matches for you, and you could make the final selection with confidence. Jennifer was calm and reassuring throughout, and has the patience of a saint! She really took the pressure off us and our families, so we could concentrate on enjoying the wedding weekend.
Jennifer absolutely went beyond all our expectations, and was with us from the very beginning of the journey 12 months out to the very end (even through that meant 5am in the morning following the wedding!). She’s truly become a friend, and it now feels so strange not having daily contact with her. We would thoroughly recommend working with Lavender & Rose for any events in the South of France, and in fact we were asked by numerous guests who’d planned our wedding, and we were extremely happy to pass their details on.
Thank you so much once again."
Wayne & Jeff,
Florists at Wayne Riley Flowers
It’s always a joy to collaborate with K and J – their enthusiam and « can-do » attitude brings out the best in us and our team…….they have vision and strive to personnalise each couple’s wedding……their vaste knowledge means you can trust them completely…….they’ll gently guide you away from potential mishaps - separating what works from what doesn’t !
They have created many a magical, bespoke wedding, from initial concept and styling to overseeing how this all comes to life on your wedding day.
Their aim : to ensure their clients get what’s been promised – on time (that’s where the dynamic and/or calm qualities come in) and on budget.
Kerry and Jennifer really know their stuff and are held in extremely high esteem by the key players in the weddings and events industry on the cote d’Azur. They have a wicked sense of humour, are generous, kind and genuine – we are extremely proud to be trusted by such talented ladies !
We love L and R……and you will too !"
Thomas Dusseune, DJ
The true love and dedication they put in to what they do, make each and everyone of their weddings a perfect hand crafted master peace.
I couldn’t recommend their service highly enough."
Laetitia C, Florist
Lavender and Rose, c’est Jennifer et Kerry, l’alliance judicieuse de tout ce que la France et l’Angleterre ont de meilleur à offrir.
En plus d’excellentes compétences d’organisation, elles se démarquent par un vrai sens artistique, une attention au détail créative et sans faille qui font des mariages qu’elles organisent de vrais chefs d’œuvres, à chaque fois uniques."
Jen & Josh
Josh and I immediately felt as though Kerry and Jennifer could in fact be guests that we’d invite to our wedding and we felt very comfortable working with them. They were patient and flexible with us, but also extremely professional and effective with all of the vendors that we ended up using. All of the vendor recommendations were excellent as well. Initially we were a bit intimidated at the thought of what a typical wedding vendor might be like in the South of France, but literally every single recommendation, from the hair and make-up artists, the caterers, the photographer, the lighting & effects, the DJ, the band, the caretaker for the house we rented, to the florist, were all amazing and very down-to-earth and easy to deal with and if we had to do it again, there are very few things that we would change.
At no point during the wedding planning process did we feel overwhelmed or unprepared. Jennifer kept us in-line very effectively, prioritizing which decisions needed to be made by drip-feeding questions and tasks in a very deliberate, yet manageable way. We put all of our trust into her and Kerry and were absolutely thrilled with the results.
Finally, Jennifer and Kerry went above and beyond what we thought we’d originally hired Lavender & Rose to do. The wedding was executed flawlessly, but as important was the ladies’ suggestions, organization and help in the days leading up to the wedding, including an event on the Friday evening, a picnic on a nearby island and drinks in a local hotel.
If we ever had the opportunity to work with Kerry and Jennifer again (on other events), we would jump at it.
Arathi & Sylvain
On the actual wedding day, Kerry ensured the entire event ran without a single incident. This allowed for us and our families to enjoy a beautiful wedding without a care.
Kerry's team, Jennifer and Sarah were also fantastic, we did not work with them as much as Kerry but for each interactions we did have with them we found them friendly, intelligent and professional. I would highly recommend using Kerry and her team for your own wedding if you are looking for a personalized, dedicated team."
Nicola & James
After a couple of months of trying to plan on our own, we realized that we were going to need some help to make our dream wedding in Provence a reality. Luckily for us, Jennifer was there to step in and we were impressed by how quickly and efficiently the wedding planning came together after that.
We had very precise ideas of how we wanted our celebration to be, from the type of venue down to the tiniest details, and Jennifer really took the time to understand all our wishes. As a result, her recommendations for suppliers were perfectly in-line with our ideas and all first class.
More than consummate professionals, both Jennifer and Kerry have a warm friendly manner that made working with them so easy and such a pleasure. We were not surprised at all to receive so many compliments about them from our guests.
There is nothing that these ladies cannot do! They even sorted out the weather for us and chased the rain and thunderstorms that were forecast for the whole weekend away!
Thank you for making the dream wedding a reality for us...
Nicola & James "
Rachel & Shane
We can honestly say it was the best day of our lives. It looked so beautiful and people were blown away by the smoothness of the event and attention to detail.
We couldn't have done it without you,you were absolutely incredible! Such a pleasure to deal with, and made it the whole stressful experience of organising a wedding actually enjoyable.
We just had the best time.
Thanks so much again,you are truly amazing at what you do!!

Nathalie & Daniel
Why did we choose Lavender & Rose from all the wedding planners on the internet? Why were we so satisfied?
During the first two months of searching for a wedding planner, we noticed that none of them were prepared to give away their secrets except for Kerry. Through her blog, she openly shared her preferred venues and why; names of caterers she worked with; photographers she loved, and so on…
Through her detailed commentary, we discovered a passionate wedding planner with excellent taste, who is clearly well connected on the French Riviera.Availability
One of the key qualities we kept reading online about wedding planners was their availability.
During the summer of 2011, we sent over 20 emails to different agencies located on the French Riviera. None of them replied except for Kerry who right away sent us a questionnaire to fill out and offered a Skype session during her day off!
Language is a must. Kerry is a bilingual wedding planner and lives in the Cannes area, so she was the perfect match for our French/American wedding.Honesty
Kerry made a very valuable point. She explained that it was important to meet (via Skype or in person) to find out whether we could work together. She explained openly that a wedding planner becomes your best friend for the next 8-9 months, and therefore it is crucial that we feel comfortable around each other to ensure the success of the wedding. Personable and Organised
Kerry was so easy to talk to about everything. She kept us informed at every stage of the planning process, which was reassuring. She would send us updates and would organise meetings via Skype. She would also arrange our days so we could meet suppliers when we flew to Nice.
Kerry and her amazing colleague Jennifer have clever minds but also magical hands. For example, they created our beautiful signs for the "reserved" chairs at the ceremony and the decorative confetti cones - all from scratch. We were so impressed.Dream Team
What a nice team Kerry has. Jennifer is a French national who joined Kerry that same year, and the two of them made miracles even with all the craziness a wedding can bring. They were always so happy and full of energy before, during and after the wedding. We were so blessed. They could always come up with solutions to any obstacles, and their energy was contagious. Special Note to the Fairies
Kerry and Jennifer, Daniel and I want to thank you once again for your patience, professionalism, kindness, humour and creativity and for making our dream wedding possible. You left a deeply positive impression in our lives and are truly unforgettable. We really miss you and wish you the best in your next wedding planning adventures.Nathalie and Daniel, happily married in St. Jean Cap Ferrat, June 2012"
Field & Peter
The whole team is incredibly enthusiastic and hardworking. We dealt mostly with Jennifer, who was absolutely wonderful. She was very well-organized, detail-oriented and trustworthy. While we were planning from afar in New York, she was on the ground in France dealing with all of the logistics, constantly sending emails, photos and updates. Even though we were miles away we felt like we were right there with her. She made the whole process incredibly easy and enjoyable for us. When we arrived in France a few days before the wedding, we met with Jennifer to go over everything and it was all perfect. We were thrilled as she had taken care of every detail. During our wedding weekend at all three of our events, she was there at every step ensuring that things went smoothly. When a couple of small glitches came up along the way, as they inevitably do, she handled them calmly and gracefully.
The ladies of Lavender and Rose also have exquisite taste! We wanted our wedding to feel romantic and elegant. They completely understood our aesthetic and helped us to achieve it. They presented us with so many wonderful ideas that we never would have thought of, while also listening to ours wishes and incorporating them into our plans. They are incredibly open-minded and creative. We were very happy with all of our vendors and it is clear that L & R has strong relationships with the best local businesses. The officiant they recommended was lovely, the ceremony music was perfect, the flowers and decor were amazing, the cake was gorgeous, the transportation was seamless and my hair and makeup artists were phenomenal.
Finally, in addition to doing a fantastic job with the wedding, Jennifer & Kerry are just lovely people. They are easy-going, thoughtful and kind, and we really enjoyed getting to know all of them. We loved working with Jennifer and are so glad to have made a new friend. Planning a wedding can be quite intensive, so it is very important to work with people whom you genuinely enjoy being around. We assure anyone who is considering working with the ladies of L & R that you will not be disappointed. We truly cannot recommend their services highly enough."
