Just catching up on some blogging, starting with this gorgeous French wedding at Chateau De Lacoste which is near to the gorgeous town of Sarlat, in the Dordogne region of Southern France.
This was my first time photographing a wedding abroad, and it was a pleasure to spend all weekend with the bride & groom Emma & Dermot, their family and friends and I was joined by Vanessa Adams who is a great photographer and friend.
Chateau De Lacoste is an amazing private chateau with beautiful grounds, and it’s own little chapel as well.
The weather was sunny and a scorching 30+ degrees all weekend. The couple chose to have their afternoon wedding ceremony on an amazing look out point on a cliff, where you could see for miles. They had close family members as celebrants, who did a marvellous job, and also lots of personal readings and vows. Bride Emma actually walked through a cave to reach the aisle, which was rather unique!!!
After the ceremony the couple relaxed with guests in the rose garden with drinks and canapes, followed be a paella wedding breakfast on the lawns. A local performer entertained guests and there were some also some very moving speeches.
We caught the last of the sunset for the photographs with the bride & groom and they all danced the night away to a brilliant English & French band.
The next day, myself and Vanessa had a chance to relax in the infinity pool, which is not an everyday occurrence for the day after a wedding! In the afternoon, everyone was invited back for a relaxed BBQ and pool party. It was great to catch up with the couple for a few more photographs of the two of them as well.
Photographing Emma & Dermot’s wedding in France was a definite highlight of the year for me. The light was beautiful, the wedding was so personal, and it was such a unique atmosphere and location.
Congratulations to the couple and all the best to them for the future!
