The Scots land in the Charente

January 28, 2018  •  Leave a Comment

Jenni & David chose to travel all the way from Edinburgh to Bellevue near Birac for their wedding. Bellevue, formally Luxury Weddings in France ran by Clare and Andrew, is situated in the beautiful Charente countryside with panoramic views and it provided the ideal venue for friends and family to stay and enjoy the wedding and of course the summer sun.


The wedding day was relaxed but clearly somebody had been busy making and placing the wedding decorations. The ceremony location, the reception area and the courtyard had all been decorated with flowers, ribbons, decorated old jam jars, wine boxes and lots of gypsophila.

Whilst Jenni was getting ready and drinking Champagne David and the guys were preparing themselves by drinking their favourite The Balvenie whisky. The whisky helped loosen them up for some photographs. Jenni & David's Wedding, Bellevue -43-4185Jenni & David's Wedding, Bellevue -43-4185

It was an emotional time when Jenni's father entered to collect Jenni for the wedding. It clearly was a proud moment.

The wedding ceremony was lovely, Jenni looked beautiful as did the 4 bridesmaids and 2 flower girls, the sun shone, and everyone relaxed and enjoyed the wedding.

A little later after canapés and of course a few drinks we had some fun with the group photographs and created a few non-standard poses.

The reception followed the speeches which produced lots of laughter and everyone got their own badge!

Later as the sun set Jenni & David took time to get their photographs taken amongst the grapevines followed by some fun with sparklers.
