We love photographing chateau weddings in the French countryside! There is something so special about a destination wedding in France - the rolling hills, the wine, the storied pasts of the regal chateaus, the pure romance of it all. At Belle Vie de Chateau. also known as Chateau Malliac in the Gascony region, there is an old chapel on the property as well as acres and acres of sunflower fields. This wedding photograph captures a moment between the bride and groom during their portrait session on the property.
This wedding was recently featured on the French Wedding Style blog, and we just had to share a quote from the bride from the blog post:
"One of my favourite memories of the wedding was when Chris and Lynn took Nick and I away to do some couples photos and we finally got to have a catch up about our day, what we had been up to and how we had been feeling. We talked for ages and completely forgot we were being photographed as we wandered around the chateau grounds.”
Our aim during a wedding portrait sessions is to keep things fun & relaxed, and this quote shows we really accomplished that mission during this Chateau de Malliac wedding. And no tequila was even required!
