Those planning to tie-the-knot in one of France’s awe-inspiring châteaus can meet with representatives from venues such as Chantilly’s Château de Montvillargenne, the 18th century Château du Breuil and the Renaissance-style Château le Mas de Montel, located in 130 acres of manicured gardens and parkland. Meanwhile, transport can be discussed with Mercedes-Benz, chic wedding invitations can be picked from L’Art du Papier and floral arrangements can be created by Reflets Fleurs.
Caterers and bakers will be on-hand to showcase their latest culinary creations such as gourmet canapés created by chef Jean-Marc Goussard from Les Toques Magiques. The CupSiCake stand will be unmissable for those seeking elegantly designed wedding cakes and mouth-watering Petit Fours, while Barman Mariage will be explaining how they can create a personalised cocktail menu for your big day. From floral shaped almond wedding favours designed by Happy Dragees to beautiful rings at Histoire d’Or, Marions Nous wedding fayre will provide inspiration for every finer detail of your wedding day under one roof this September.
Le Dome de Paris
29th September 2016 – 1st January 2017
Be whisked away to 17th century Paris this September with exciting live performances, awe-inspiring back-drops and cutting-edge technical effects at musical ‘Les 3 Mousquetaires’. From the end of the month until the beginning of January, the world-famous quote ‘one for all, all for one!’ will echo around the walls of the Palais de Sports, located just a 10 minute walk from our hotel. Boasting an outstanding production team and line-up of actors, this modern take on a classic story will offer an unforgettable night out during a stay in Paris.
The story will follow d’Artagnan as he arrives in Paris and joins forces with King Louis XIII’s three musketeers; Athos, Porthos and Aramis. Watch as the sword-wielding team battle with Cardinal Richelieu and his allies including Milady de Winter to save the honour of Anne, the Queen of France. Actor and singer Damien Sargue is set to play Aramis and may be recognisable from 2013’s ‘Dancing with the Stars’. Meanwhile, Athos will be played by the show’s multi-talented artistic consultant Brahim Zaibat.
The show’s renowned production team consists of Roberto Ciurleo, Gilbert and Nicole Coullier, and Eleanor De Galard; whose musical ‘Robin Hood’ attracted an audience of 800,000. The directors René Richard Cyr and Dominic Champagne are both award-winning and internationally-admired artists from Québec, while set designer Stéphane Roy has previously worked on the Cirque du Soleil.
The impressive line-up continues with choreographer Yaman Okur, who has worked with Madonna, while the show was written by songwriter Lionel Florence, and lyricist and novelist Patrice Guirao, who has written for the likes of Celine Dion. With gallantry and treachery equally abound, ‘Les 3 Mousquetaires’ is set to deliver an outstanding and toe-tapping evening of entertainment this September. Looking forward to seeing the four musketeers in their capes, boots and trademark hats from just 39€.
Whether you’re planning your dream wedding day or looking for a unique evening out, there’ll be an exciting event on offer during a September stay at Median Paris Porte de Versailles.
