Where to start…

The weather I think. Hot. Blazing hot. It probably did not get past 35 degrees C, but when you are out in it all day long, that’s more than enough.

This was my first visit to The Majestic Chateau and it has instantly become one of my favourites. One thing I never do is spend much time studying any venue prior to that first visit. Nor do I spend any time looking at what anyone else has done there. I don’t wish to be influenced but see it fresh and through my eyes.

And so it was for Tara & Guillaume’s wedding at The Majestic Chateau with the ever-fabulous Laurence from Marry Me In France.

I knew it was a courtyard based chateau and had a fabulous natural swimming pond (I have a thing about them and looking to build one myself) so the setting I knew was going to be great.

On top of that, MMIF always put on a good show and this one was a bit special. The only possible fly that can get in the ointment on these days is the weather but as above, wall to wall sunshine.

So the wedding day itself…

Bride & Groom prep in the chateau itself for this Canadian-French affair. The bride Tara is from Canada and the groom from France though they reside in the former.

The ceremony took place next door in the village church with the drinks reception down by the aforementioned swimming pond. Some of the speeches also took place here as did a champagne fountain, – all very relaxed and beautiful.

Then it was up to the chateau courtyard for the meal and further speeches and again is another perfect and elegant setting, before moving on to dancing in the barn.

As always, it’s the results that can tell the best story with a highlights slideshow production above (to be followed as soon as it’s ready, by an additional wedding film) and a selection of highlights below.
