The end of the week and today you can drift off into a dream land in the South West of France, with this soft springtime Gascony wedding inspiration shoot.  From the land of fairytale chateaus, rolling hills and forests comes a fresh take on tying the knot in the springtime.

Set in a commanding Gascony Chateau, the team at Marry Me in France have teamed up with Sylvain Harrison to show a softer side of a sunshine wedding, with subtle hints and tones taken in the soft spring light with Sylvain’s sensual eye.

Photographer Sylvain: “I wanted this shoot to come alive, for the couple to stand out as if actors set within a beautiful backdrop of the most delicate and fragile of flora and fauna, only sighted in spring.

Sylvain’s romantic bridal scenes show the ceremony in the park, the couple sat in love by the pool, in a vintage car, intimately sipping cocktails in the striking Armagnac warehouse and sampling typical Gascony pork.

Then dinner by an impressively lit open fire to cutting the eccentrically stacked ‘cheese’ gateaux.  Ending in the piano bar that created a wonderfully warm ambiance full of evening promise, long after the wedding breakfast had been cleared away.

Sylvain has truly captured the essence of spring in these stunning shots taken in the wonderful Gascony Chateau.
