Summer Fun French Wedding

Charlotte and Chris wanted their wedding to be a fun day and Charlotte spent some time investigating and sharing with me the sort of photographs she liked. So, on the wedding day armed with Charlotte’s list I set off for the Chateau Fayolle just outside Riberac in SW France.

I arrived to see Charlotte’s team of helpers had decorated the entrance and outside areas of the Chateau. Clearly someone had been planning ahead.

Charlotte and the girls were getting ready upstairs and Chris and the boys downstairs. Everyone was remarkably relaxed.

Guided by Milo the Labrador Charlotte and her Dad made their way to the Chapel. The setting was really lovely. Chateau de Fayolle Charlotte & Chris' Wedding (95 of 400) - 8952Chateau de Fayolle Charlotte & Chris' Wedding (95 of 400) - 8952

The weather forecast in France is normally accurate and it promised a sunny +30oC, so it was going to be a hot one. But as the day progressed it seemed to get hotter and hotter more like late 30’s than early 30's. We all baked in the heat but remarkably Charlotte and Chris didn't look like they were suffering.

The bridesmaids and flower girls in their grey and pink dresses and the guys in blue suits and pink ties all looked very coordinated and a pleasure to photograph.

Janet and Gerry, the chateau’s owners had worked their normal magic and the venue looked lovey. After the ceremony those cool drinks were in demand and the fun soon started.

Everything went to plan and everyone certainly looked like they enjoyed the day but boy was it hot.
