Photoshooting Inspiration Wedding at Le Camp Foundation
On 22 August 2020, Le Camp Foundation was delighted to welcome its first "photoshooting - wedding inspiration" in the company of its favourite wedding providers.
On this wonderful day, many of the region's wedding providers, who usually collaborate with the Le Camp Foundation, got together to give free rein to their talent:
- Mademoiselle C at Vaumarcus, Wedding planer, decorator and stationery shop
- History of Fleurs à Peseux for flowers
- Colayco à Peseux for wedding rings and jewels
- Timotee Hair and Make-up in Neuchâtel
- Confiserie Schmid SA in Neuchâtel for the cake
- Douce Apparence à Cormondrèche (D&A nail care and make-up) for the dress
- VR Photography Virginie and Raphaël Nobs in Moutier for the photos
- Aurélie and François, future bride and groom and models
After a successful beauty makeover by Timotée in the Zwingli house and after putting on the magnificent dress of Douce Apparence and the splendid jewellery of Colayco, the bride and groom were photographed from all angles by our talented photographer, Raphaël. Whether near the main building, on the green amphitheatre, in the Rotunda or in the middle of the vineyards, our bride and groom found themselves in the midst of the magnificent decorations created by Mademoiselle C and Histoire de Fleurs especially for the occasion. They even had the chance to taste the wonderful wedding cake made by Confiserie Schmid.
Change of Presidency at the Foundation Le Camp
After forty years of service on the Board of the Foundation le Camp - 26 of which as President - Mr. Pierre-André Lautenschlager, from Prêles, handed over his mandate to Mr. Philippe André, from Yens, on the occasion of the General Assembly held on Saturday 22nd August last.
During his forty years of commitment, Mr. Lautenschlager has given the meeting, training and holiday centre overlooking Lake Neuchâtel its current face as well as an organisation that enables it to look to the future with serenity, at the service of its guests and supported by a team of competent and motivated staff.
An architect by profession, Mr Philippe André took a leading role in the infratstructural transformations. Determined to continue in the footsteps of his predecessor, the new president is already conducting studies for the refurbishment of a dormitory building to make it a modern reception area, suitable for groups of up to 25 participants.
A party for former board members, staff, friends and relatives followed the formal deliberations, allowing a convivial farewell to the outgoing president and three other board members.
