Reform Wedding in France – is it possible?

Hi there, my partner (French Jew) and I (American Jew) are planning for our wedding next year which will happen in France. His side of the family skew from more traditional to modern Orthodox (as is quite popular in France) although he by definition is quite reform.

We have learned that it is required for women to both (1) do a mikveh (2) complete religious classes pre-mikveh, which was a big surprise – this is not common with American Jews, perhaps due to the large reform population.

Does anybody know whether mikveh is required for women in France or we just need to find a progressive/liberal/reform rabbi and this will be lifted? Thank you in advance for your guidance.
