Welcome to another wonderful week here at French Wedding Style. Today we have a sunflower Inspired Chateau de Brametourte wedding to brighten your week!
Our sweet bride and groom Anna and Alex chose FWS vendor and gorgeous wedding venue Château de Brametourte to celebrate their love for each other. This 11th century chateau with its stunning panoramic views across 20 hectares of park land, woods and sun-flowered fields, towards the Pyrenean peaks is the perfect destination for your big day.
We just love the breathtaking views captured perfectly by Wild Connections Photography. Especially the image above taken in the beautiful golden hour!
Our beautiful bride Anna chose a strapless lace gown created by Watters which was the perfect elegant choice for their relaxed sunflower inspired wedding!
We’ll now pass you over to Cat of Wild Connections Photography who will be walking us through Anna and Alex’s Chateau de Brametourte wedding…
“She was from England, he was from Australia, but the universe brought them together whilst trekking in a jungle in Southeast Asia. Anna and Alex’s love story is filled with adventure and travel, so it made perfect sense for their wedding to be another adventure in a foreign land.”
“Because of Anna’s French roots, their search began across the country for the perfect venue, and when they came across the Chateau de Brametourte in the south of France, they knew they had found it. Not only did they fall in love with the grand period features of the chateau and it’s stunning gardens, but it was also the perfect size to offer accommodation for their whole wedding party.”
“On the morning of the wedding their families, along with Gillian the chateau’s fantastic wedding coordinator, put the final finishing touches to the ceremony and reception areas together, and whilst Anna was getting ready in once of the chateau’s many stunning period rooms, Alex took the opportunity to grab one final swim in the pool.”
“Their ceremony was held outside in the chateau’s stunning gardens, followed by a toast and canapés on the terrace. They held their wedding breakfast in the stunning Grand Pavilion, which with it’s open sides, gave the feeling of luxury al fresco dining. Anna and Alex decided to keep decor to a minimum since the Chateau and it’s surroundings provided an already stunning backdrop.”
“They opted for a rustic feel with hessian table runners, sunflowers from a local florist, lavender from the gardens and lots of twinkling tea lights for once the sun went down. They decided to exchange a traditional wedding cake for something more in fitting with the day, and were treated to a magnificent croquembouche tower handcrafted by a local patisserie.”
Congratulations Anna and Alex from everyone here at French Wedding Style!
