The Wedding Village in France. There may be others, but I don’t know of another entire village that is exclusive to a single wedding as Castlenau des Fieumarcon.

Lauren & Michael’s wedding was something like the 12th I have covered at the venue (and the first of six this year) and the first thing that struck me on this May visit, was just how much work has been done over the Winter.

It’s long since been one of my favourite venues to work at (the scope, the staff, the opportunities) and new for this season especially is the new top terrace, approx 50% bigger than it was previously. There is also a new spa complex under construction below the terrace (opening in 2020 I believe) and a new open sky, but ‘indoor’ area. All in all, progress!

I first met Lauren & Michael up at the village last year and whilst Poppy was but an 8 week old bump, but come wedding day, she’s not so far off being a year old. She features in quite a few photos and though too young to be a proper flower girl, an integral part of the day.

L&M’s wedding began the day prior on the Friday with an informal ‘meet & greet’ drinks and BBQ/buffet plus a couple of welcome speeches from Michael’s parents. The weather held off mostly but the weather for the last few weeks has been a bit unsettled in this part of SW France.

The day dawned sunny on the Saturday and it lasted most of the day. OK, it clouded up a bit for the outdoor ceremony and for parts of the drinks reception, but we were treated to a fabulous sunset in the evening.
