Enchanting Rural France Wedding, image by Blondie PhotographyIt’s the end of the week and we are celebrating as today’s couple Milla and Si invite you to come to their enchanting and rural France wedding day in Lot Et Garonne area of Aquitaine in South West France.  The couple embraced a local old farm house as their wedding venue and saw the potential of the building filled with history and character, transforming it into their wedding backdrop.

Milla’s lace Melanie dress by Maggie Sottero is such a wonderful blend of relaxed sophistication and we are loving her green shoes from Rainbow Club.  UK based photographer Blondie Photography traveled over to France to capture Milla and Si’s big day so let’s enjoy as Bride Milla takes us through their day:

“I’ve always known I wanted to get married at the Chauteau. It’s a very special place to me because of how much my Mum loved it. I remember the day we saw it first. It needed a lot of work but she could visualise what it could truly look like. Luckily Si saw and felt how special it was too when we visited together after we got engaged”.

“Obviously its an old farm house in rural France so I knew the wedding wasn’t going to be super polished but I wanted to embrace that and use local suppliers. So we chose traditional French food and used local wine. I wanted to use local wild flowers but at that time of the year there are not many flowers around so we had to go with what was available. Jonquil still managed to make the marquee flowers look gorgeous.”

“As well as reflecting the location Si and I also wanted the day to be personal. From the stories told by the Celebrant in the ceremony, to my brother reading the passage from Captain Corelli’s Mandolin that my Mum wrote to me when she found out she was ill, the photo timeline of our lives and a picture of us in each destination that the tables were named after, there wasn’t a theme as such but more just a wish to make it feel relaxed and happy.”
