Chateau Roquelune Wedding Photography
My first time doing Chateau Roquelune wedding photography I had been waiting ages for Shaun and Lucy’s wedding. It was my first wedding in France although I do quite a few destination weddings each year. I used to live in France for a few years (woohoo!) and so it was great to tick this wedding off of my bucket list.
Friends of Beth & Tom (from this San Galgano wedding) I knew Shaun and Lucy’s wedding would be equally as crazy to photograph and I wasn’t wrong. Chateau Roquelune made an incredible backdrop and it was difficult to stop taking photos of it! I’ve not been to a wedding venue like it! Close to Pézenas in Southern France it was also my first trip to that part of the world. I could easily retire there…
What were my top three moments of the day?
Spirited wedding guests popping bottles on the dance floor. This is something I’ve been waiting for as a wedding photographer for a very long time! Finally it happened.
Lucy and Shaun’s outdoor wedding ceremony. Warm sunshine, an ancient fountain, trees, loved ones and a gentle breeze. It was perfect.
Finally – the relaxed wedding reception with amazing cocktails, drinks and an endless supply of the most tasty canapés. I had to keep reminding myself I was there to work – but at times it felt like a mini holiday! Looking at the photos takes me right back.
A huge huge thank you to Lucy and Shaun for having me. We’d not met before the big day but Shaun warmly showed me around the venue in the morning. I ‘think’ Lucy forgot I was there and had a big smile on her face all day. They were amazing hosts and I loved being a part of their day.
Anyway, enough talk from me and on with the Chateau Roquelune wedding photography.
