Mad Hatters. But that is tomorrow…

The last couple of days of May in SW France were hot. Very hot.

The last time I was up at Castelnau des Fieumarcon (known as ‘The Wedding Village’) the weather was a bit mixed.

Not this weekend though and more in keeping with this part of France and this time of year.

So what can I tell you about Lindy & David’s hilltop village wedding…?

The ceremony itself took place outdoors on one of the top garden terraces and the couple were married by Lindy’s father.

A drinks reception followed on the terrace next door with the wedding meal in the grand hall.

Pretty ‘straightforward’. Then the Mad Hatters arrived…

Yes, the following day was full on ‘Mad Hatters Tea Party’ with everyone getting in the spirit.

A long shaded table was set out and decorated with all things ‘Alice’ and then they turned up.

Hatters, Alices, Queens of Hearts, Tweedle Dum & Tweedle Dee, Cheshire Cats, Caterpillars…

‘Eat Me’ & ‘Drink Me’ dainty cakes and drinks…

It was all quite magical really and a great idea for a post-wedding day event.

And that is what this place, Castelnau des Fieumarcon, is all about. It’s THE Wedding Village and is never just about a single wedding day, but a series of days & events.
