Once Upon An Enchanted Château!

DP20160120-0817_1_01This old and enchanting Château had it’s first, real, fairytale wedding, with all our friends and family who travelled from far and wide to celebrate this Groom and Bride.

It was a day full of Joy, Pride, Love and Excitement, as we had the pleasure to be the first, after all the renovation, to try out, and enjoy, the reception room and the kitchen.

The wedding was simple, elegant, with a classic fairytale Inspiration.

We started the Celebration on the day before the wedding with a “Tea Party” and some fun games, who knew that toilet paper would be so much fun as we did a toilet paper wedding dress challenge, with the Bride’s team against the Bridesmaids, we had an absolute laugh.

All the desserts were created by Deb from (Caseras cakes) not only did they look sensational, they tasted delicious.

The Wedding Day

We had a day full of celebration, starting with a breakfast, by an outstanding chef and his team (Grolleau Guilaume) while being serenaded by a cello and violinist, sitting high up above everyone on the balcony in the reception room, they not only had the best seat in the room, but the best view too, they got to watch all the excitement flooding in.

The sun came out to shine, after the cool air and morning fog lifted, the groom with his best man and some of the family did the slow and graceful walk down to the village Marie, followed by the bride, bridal party and the rest of the friends and family, for the most romantic walk she could do before the french/english ceremony performed by Mayor of Le Mung and translated by the best man, our very own Jacob… began.

Walking to the Marie.

After the “I Do’ we all walked back to the Château for a light lunch, a tantalising mix of delicacies, and some fun filled games of Badminton, Rugby and Boules, which got a little heated and exciting.

After all the fun, we got sit down and relax, to a formal dinner, where the room had transformed itself into something we had not yet seen, a very warming and serene setting, complemented with forever roses sitting on a bed of glass pebbles to capture the moment, the colour changing spot lights setting the ambiance.

We had heartwarming speeches, with our young cousin surprising everyone with her beautiful voice, we had tears, cheers and so much laughter.

The wedding cake was presented, it was a simple, yet elegant, a naked cake, filled with cream and fresh berries, with the beautiful finishing touch of fresh roses for decor, the room filled with a big “cheers” to the Bride and Groom as their knife sank into it.

Then we got mesmerized as we “oooh and ahhh’d” watching the first dance as Husband and Wife, to a live band performing the song “Thinking Out Loud”, and then we all got to enjoy some dancing, while the newlyweds dance themselves into a Happily Ever After.

A Big Thank You to everyone who joined us and was involved in making this a truly special day, for the happy newlyweds.

Keep posted, we will be back for another article soon!

  1. It was such a great joy to see how beautiful things went off for the wedding. The French aren’t considered the world’s best food connoisseur’s for no reason. You surely went all out and everything looked so beautiful. I felt the excitement in the air from the beautiful photos you’ve shared. I wish the new couple an amazing and abundant future. The chateau looks so fabulous, from such continual hard work. Who could not admire you all so much? Thank you for sharing so much with the world and best wishes for everything that is good. From DallasTX, USA!!!

  3. Thank you so much for sharing the “fairy tale.” When my husband was stationed in France, we went to several French weddings and your pictures and commentary brought back so many good memories. The photography was awesome and, of course, the setting of the Chateau was beautiful. I predict you’ll host many more amazing weddings.
