Chateau St Michel France

After touring several venues in South West France, Carly & Ben settled on the magnificent Chateau St Michel in the foothill of the Pyrenees. The day was full of joy with their closest friends and family.

Carly wore a beautiful tailor made dress by Victoria Sanders Studio, recently awarded best emerging bridal fashion brand. Her hair and make-up were done by Muriel from Marry Us in France. Also a celebrant, Muriel has 20 years experience in hair and make-up in the TV industry. Carl had a beautiful natural style with long wavy hair.

Carly loved pampa grass and olive branches so we included lots in the arrangements. Tones were cream, light pink and green. The setting being so beautiful, they wanted to complement it with light touches.

They held their ceremony under a tree with a cream draping for the arch and a garland of foliage. The central aisle was adorned with bouquets of olive branches. And the entrance of the aisle had two gorgeous floor arrangements of pampa grass, olive branches and roses.

Following a heartfelt ceremony, they enjoyed cocktails and canapés from local French caterer around the pool. They had hired a caricaturist to entertain their guests.

The cocktail was on the other side of the chateau, around the pool. With such a backdrop, you don’t need to do too much so we had wine barrels with flower arrangements on them and flowers on buffets.

They dined al fresco in a wooded area of the grounds, a family style dinner of shared platters of local food including duck, fish and fresh vegetables. They ended the meal with the traditional French wedding cake: the popular croquembouche!
