Romantic Nuptials at Chateau de Brives: Loïs and JJ Gallichan’s Heartfelt Wedding Weekend

Loïs and JJ Gallichan celebrated their wedding weekend at the stunning Chateau de Brives, near Cognac. This location holds a special place in their hearts, as they have spent many summers in the area, primarily because Loïs’s parents live nearby. Furthermore, the venue’s significance was heightened by her brother’s wedding at the same Château just a year earlier. The welcome party took place at the bride’s parents’ house, where they hosted a hog roast for all 100 guests, intriguingly keeping the venue a surprise for the next day.

A Magical Setting and decoration

The wedding took place in the picturesque grounds of Chateau de Brives, with the ceremony held in the enchanting woodland and the dinner and after-party within the barns, which were decorated with the timeless simplicity of gypsophila and candlelight, all in white. Making a grand entrance, the bride arrived in her “something blue,” a vintage Porsche, notable for its number plate personalized with the couple’s initials. Bride Loïs looked stunning in a Pronovias wedding dress, complemented by her bridesmaids, who were also dressed in white, while the groom and his ushers opted for classic beige linen suits.

”Guests danced into the early morning”

The entrance wasn’t the only showcase for the vintage vehicles; additionally, a sixties VW camper van served as a photo booth for the evening party. Live music accompanied the guests from the ceremony to the evening party. An acoustic singer and piano set the tone for the ceremony and reception. And as the night unfolded, guests danced into the early morning to the captivating beats of Mixology—a dynamic blend of DJ, Saxophone, and Bongo melodies.

”The sunny weather and delectable treats brought a brilliant close to the wedding weekend”

The following day, as the sun bathed the Château in its warm glow, hangovers were gently nursed by the delightful return to the grounds. Wood-fired pizzas and tempting gelato added a savoury and sweet touch, creating a perfect blend of flavours to soothe post-celebration spirits. The sunny weather and delectable treats brought a brilliant close to the wedding weekend, leaving everyone with cherished memories and a taste of joy lingering in the air.
