CHATEAU D’ARLENS WEDDING
So where to begin? How about the start of the day? Seems like a good place…
This was very much a DIY wedding. Other than 2 local ladies for washing up duties, other than myself, there were no ‘suppliers’ at this wedding.
Venue? Friends of the family, – the delightful Chateau D’Arlens owned by Sally and run by Ruth.
Flowers? That would be Sally, the bride and various family & guests.
Catering? Bride’s mum (and legion of assistants).
Officiant? Alex’s brother, Hugh.
Flypast? Sally’s son.
Sorry, just realised I have fibbed. The sounds & light (sometimes called a DJ) in the evening was a pro job!
But EVERYTHING else was gifted, supplied and worked on by the Livvy & Alex ‘wedding collective’.
Even I contributed with a basket of fresh figs from one of our trees that made up a part of the sharing platters.
And then there was the timing and the light…
If it had not been for *cough* me, suggesting the ceremony was delayed for 15 minutes, the couple would have been blinded by sunlight. But taking the decision to make the ceremony 5.15pm rather than 5pm made all the difference.
Then, if Mrs F. Nustedt had remembered to put the Potato D. in the oven on time, then the beautiful golden hour pics at sunset would not have happened…so thank you Fran, – something very special happened because of you!
And that is enough from me. Above, the highlight slideshow. Click here for full gallery link.
“Without doubt the best decision we made regarding our wedding. As soon as I found his website I knew I had found the style I was looking for.
Friendly and professional throughout, he worked around us perfectly.
When we received our photos I was blown away by the quantity and quality of them. I have no idea how Simon seemingly managed to be in a hundred places at once but he nailed it and we couldn’t be happier.
The only problem is trying to choose which ones to print, there’s so many perfect images I suppose I shall have to wallpaper my house with them!”
