We are spoiling you today here at French Wedding Style with this lovely Chateau de la Couronne real wedding as it contains not one but two of our FWS vendors… the wonderfully talented wedding photographer Katy Lunsford who is based in France with her family and who captures her couples’ gorgeous days with a fine art feel as you’ll see in this beautiful set. “My photographic style reflects my love of France – the beautiful soft tones, the gorgeous golden light, the landscapes and architecture, the outdoor lifestyle and sharing beautiful times with good friends and family” and the simply amazing florist French Flower Style who is highly sought after by her brides. With 20 years of floristry experience you can be confident that Lisa can transform your venue with an array of beautiful quality blooms.
The whole day was held at the breathtaking Chateau de la Couronne, set within 5 acres of private grounds and on the edge of a pretty village in the south west of France. As you will see from the images below the chateau and its grounds are the perfect place for you, your family and friends to enjoy an epic destination wedding, throw in some stunning French weather, a glorious sunset and a corn field (yes, you read that right, keep reading to see for yourself!) and you’re in destination wedding heaven!
We’ll now pass you over to Katy Lunsford who will be walking us through todays Chateau de la Couronne real wedding…
“Kathryn & Gui’s beautiful Chateau de la Couronne wedding was like something straight out of a fairytale – complete with actual turrets! Kathryn looked divine in her Cymbeline gown – an appropriately French designed wedding dress for her French wedding – and Gui was every bit the dapper groom in his Reiss suit.”
“Chateau de la Couronne is a stunning venue; a beautifully restored chateau nestled in the French countryside, blending authentic French character with eclectic style, and generous dose of luxury.”
“The chateau sits on the edge of the pretty village of Marthon, in the Charente region in South West France (the region I am now lucky enough to call home!), surrounded by golden fields.”
“The weather was glorious; perfect blue skies for the outdoor ceremony in the chateau grounds, beautiful golden hour light and a balmy evening for the al fresco dinner in the courtyard.”
“Of course, spying the perfect cornfield just down the road from the chateau, we just had to slip away before the speeches for some gorgeous golden hour portraits.”
“Aside from all the pretty, the wedding was infused with genuine love and laughter throughout the day, from the moving ceremony to the emotional speeches (yes, I cried!), finishing up with such an awesome evening party I stayed to the very end! (Top tip – having live saxophone alongside a DJ adds an amazing atmosphere, without the expense of a full live band!).”
Kathryn & Gui are the sweetest couple, their friends and families are lovely, and it was an absolute joy to be a part of their special day in such a beautiful setting.”
Congratulations Kathryn & Gui from everyone here at French Wedding Style!
