We are heading to the Dordogne for a South of France wedding held in the grounds of our couples aunts Chateau on a summers day in August. Aliz and Mike couldn’t resist the charm of a French wedding and decided on an intimate French inspired day.
They enlisted the help of wedding planner Peaches and Cream Weddings with the day including florals by Maryflor and a delicious bespoke cake by The Cake Lady. There to capture every special moment was photographer Firehorse Photography.
We’ll now pass you over to Amy of Peaches and Cream Weddings who will be walking us through this at home South of France wedding…
They chose the South of France to get married as Mike’s aunt had recently bought a Chateau and vineyard. They of course couldn’t resist the French wine and gastronomy.
Aliz and Mike’s ceremony took place in the grounds of the chateau with intimate friends and family, where Charlie Tyrell Smith and Jodie played Pachelbel’s Canon live on the flute.
They totally trusted me to introduce them to what was French tradition and what would work best to impress both of their families. They ate duck for main course and drank beautiful red wine from Saussignac.
One of the main elements of the day for Aliz was the wedding cake. She chose a vertical cake made of chocolate and cherry on one side, and raspberry and white chocolate on the other. The amazing Steph The Cake Lady drew and made it to be totally bespoke.
Mike wished to have an open air cocktail bar serving everything between G&T’s to Old Fashions. They then danced the night away under the fully opened marquee provided by the lovely Chapiteaux en Perigord.
Congratulations Aliz and Mike from everyone here at FWS!
