Rustic French Country Wedding

Come with us as we transport you into the countryside in the South West of France, as we head to a 500 year old castle Château de Saint-Martory the setting for today’s rustic French country Wedding inspiration shoot.

The beautiful images in today’s shoot were captured by Elena Joland and combined the inspiration of planner Dominique Garay from DG-Organisation agency.   We are in love with so many of the elements in today’s styled shoot from the boho inspired bridal hair, to the beautiful Bérangère A wedding dress, but it is the amazing florals by Atelier Endémik that have captured our hearts.

Photographer Elena takes us through this wonderful shoot:  “Beautiful and elegant castle, Château de Saint-Martory offers more than charm. This is a jewel of a château located in a beautiful forested region of southwest France and directly on the banks of the River Garonne. This year the Chateau is celebrating its 500th birthday and is a unique and luxurious location for fairytale weddings.

Bride’s dress has been especially created by “Bérangère A” in a modern and sexy shape, but also delicate and poetic. The particularity of this dress is that it has pockets, it is very practical and gives it a relaxing style, and the jewels chains on the back add a little bit of glamour.
