LOIRE WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER
Pigs, dogs, giant balloons & popcorn.
Just some of my abiding memories of this wedding.
France is a large country with a landmass three times that of the UK.
This means that many of the weddings I cover here are ‘road trips’. And I love a good road trip.
The Loire valley is an approx 5 hour drive from Gers, but on French autoroute and A roads, not a chore and the km’s slip by.
Aimey & Ben had chosen Manoir de la Foulquetière close to the village of Lucay-le-Male as their wedding venue.
This property, almost like a tiny hamlet in itself, has been beautifully and lovingly restored by owner Rosemary Conquest.
The guests were staying both at the Manoir and across the road at the lakeside chalet park the largest of which where the evening pre-dinner drinks took place.
So, those pigs, dogs, giant balloons & popcorn…
On the animal side, there were 2 pigs; Rodney & Derek (think about it…) and 4 dogs (each set of parents and the B&G brought theirs).
The giant balloons lost one of their number early in the day on the actual wedding day and the popcorn was for the guests whilst the B&G signed the book!
Then there was the Trolls and the Cornish Rattler. I think you might need to visit Part 02 for more on that…
