– MOLLY & CEDRIC –
a CASTELNAU DES FIRMACON WEDDING
Thank you Simon, the photos are beautiful 🙂
Molly & Cedric
Molly & Cedric’s ‘Wedding Village’ mariage took place at Castelnau des Firmacon AKA, ‘The Wedding Village’ as essentially that is what you get for 3 days.
I’m not sure if it’s completely unique, but I have never heard or come across another in France so it’s rare at the very least.
An entire ancient (but beautifully restored internally) hilltop village in the heart of the Gers countryside (which sleeps 70+) which is exclusively yours for the duration.
I love working at this place which is conveniently only 30 minutes from my studio and have photographed & filmed around 10 weddings here to date.
Molly & Cedric’s Anglo/Belgian, but very international wedding was the latest and first time for me with the use of the chapel.
One of the beauties of this place is each time it’s different with numerous options for indoor or outdoor ceremonies depending on the weather and your personal choice.
Ditto in regard to dining options, – smaller weddings intimate in one of the houses, larger in the dining hall or outdoors.
In short, you have options. Many options.
Molly & Cedric’s option was for a full Catholic ceremony with mass in the chapel conducted by Father John.
Drinks & canapes on the lawn terrace and evening meal & speeches plus dancing in the barrel vaulted hall.
And the weather? I always mention the weather… Well it was not exactly scorchio but rather what us photographers would describe as ‘photographers weather’ which is bright, but quite a bit of cloud.
Floristry was by the ever excellent Faith Brennan at Le Coeur Savage.
