Delivery. A wedding like in the good old days!. The event happened last Saturday on the small road to Chantenay below the hamlet of Riousse.
A sign instructed users to slow down due to a village festival. In the small towns of Nivernais, and it is well known, family celebrations very quickly turn into village celebrations. It is in the middle of nowhere, in the middle of the countryside, that Anne-Lise’s hairdressing truck, Hair, was installed in the courtyard of an old renovated farmhouse. Near him sat a few tables nicely covered in white and decorated with many flowers. A smell of fresh bread emanated from it.
Get your hair done on site
It was about the preparations for the wedding of Johan and Julie who had wanted a moment of sharing with their family and friends in a rural setting and in all simplicity. The baker and friend of the couple was the first on the scene and had the magnificent wood oven installed in an outbuilding of the house. Country breads and pastries for the next day were cooling after baking.
The mothers of the newlyweds, the groom, the witnesses, the bridesmaids, had chosen to have their hair done on site. A very original decision for a wedding in a rural environment which was almost unanimously accepted by the participants.
“It saves time, we are all together and already in a festive atmosphere. We even created a WhatsApp group upstream with the hairdresser to discuss our hairstyle choices,” says Nawel, delighted by this new concept.
Very quickly there was excitement around the hairdressing truck. Some put forward the idea of the practical aspect of the approach, others more motivated by the flexibility of working hours, and still others insist on the aspect of family reunification.
Violette Favier, beautician, shared Anne-Lise’s truck and offered makeup.
A thoughtful event
A rustic and original wedding whose goal was to spend a very beautiful day of sharing until the meal where the guests had to taste local products for the most part: sausages, goat cheeses from the small canailloux, Riousse wine, bread from the future baker of Livry, etc. The centerpiece of the meal being served to the guests by the local food truck, also installed in the courtyard, namely an organic chicken accompanied by Sarladaise potatoes, according to the wishes of the bride and groom.
A thoughtful long-standing and highly symbolic event for Sylvie Boulet, Johan’s mother and deputy mayor of Livry, who wanted to respect the wishes of the bride and groom while involving local economic players.
