The first thing we need to establish is which Chateau Pitray?
There are two and not so far apart.
Even I made the mistake…
Wind back the clock a few months…
I was shooting a wedding at another fabulous venue, Chateau Soulac and looking out over the valley and Dordogne river, I distinctly remember a beautiful building across the river.
You couldn’t quite throw a stone and hit it, but as the crow flies, maybe 1km absolute tops.
No idea what the place was. Little did I know it was Chateau de Pitray.
And there it is right there, the ‘de’. That is what differentiates:
I made my mistake when booking my accom. The place I chose was just 1 km away.
From Chateau Pitray…but around 20 from Chateau DE Pitray.
I discovered this when plotting my route after booking my accom.
I wasn’t the only one, – various guests did the same.
And the bus driver bringing 40+ guests from Bordeaux airport.
We all got there in the end and that is what counts.
Plus it made a great story!

“Just wanted to send you a little email to say thank you so much for being so wonderful at our wedding! You were so nice to have there and so helpful, it was very reassuring to have your opinion which I trusted and so was great to have you around, especially before the wedding with the last minute details, the weather etc! Shan and I are very excited to see the photos which I know will be incredible, but for now just wanted to say thanks for being such a lovey addition to our wedding weekend, the photos online look amazing!”
