Hattie and Michael

Venue: Chateau Le Tour, Faux, 24560 (www.chateauletour.com)

This beautiful 19th century chateau is set in a sixty acre park and is situated in the heart of the Dordogne valley. It’s close to Bergerac airport.  The garden is lovely and this is where Hattie and Michael had their boho chic wedding ceremony.

Wedding Planner: As they had family living close by Hattie and Michael didn’t have a planner. Her dad and step mum did lots of research about venues and spent months  gathering various items for the garden from bric-a-brac stores, antique places and car boot sales! The chateau owners were also incredibly helpful, going above and beyond to help create the perfect day.

“All our friends and family cared about was a) that there was enough food and booze (there definitely was)! b) we all there together c) that it was sunny (not something we could control). We managed to win all on 3 fronts! Worrying about the cutlery and seating plan might seem like a big deal in the moment but it’s important to not sweat the small stuff during the process and try to enjoy it as much as possible!”

“Both Michael and I just wanted to say a huge thank you again for your energy and input to make our day so memorable. We couldn’t have asked for it to be more perfect and was completely magical. The ceremony was exactly… in fact even better than we could ever have hoped for! It’s such a lovely touch to be able to cherish the written script and certificate. So many of our friends commented on how brilliant you were – we really lucked out being able to have you officiate our day”
