Meg and Chris spent quite a few years after they got engaged deciding on where to tie the knot and ghey did not disappoint with their choice! They hired one of the most stunning Chateaus in the whole of France, Chateau De Vallery, for the entire weekend. They hosted almost everybody they knew from London and just had a party for three whole days! I have been photographing weddings all over the world for over ten years now and I cannot think of anywhere that is more impressive than Chateau De Vallery, it is an absolutely breathtaking wedding venue.
Friday evening Meg and Chris invited friends and family to a wine tasting evening in the cellar of the Chateau, some of the wines on offer were over 100 years old! Later on in the evening everybody walked across to the outdoor pool, drank champagne and children dipped their little feet in the pool. I stayed for a few hours and then left quite early, I had a huge job to do on the wedding day and I wanted to be fresh. Saturday morning I arrived at the Chateau and started to photograph Meg and her bridesmaids getting ready, the pool party and then moved on to the grooms quarters and stayed with them for an hour before moving back to the ladies so I could stay with them before the ceremony.
And what an absolutely stunning outdoor ceremony it was! The weather was just perfect. Once that was over we all gathered on the front lawn, drinking champagne and eating a very special selection of French cuisine which was prepared by the first class catering company Loison Taiteur, what an absolute treat that was.
The wedding dinner was held upstairs in the Chateau and once we had come back from photographing a few sunset portraits a party started that evening which just carried on and on, through to Sunday and into Monday! Thank you so much Meg and Chris and everybody else who was at the Chateau for those few days, what a beautiful wedding!
