Happy Monday everyone and welcome along to another fun packed week on the blog. I hope you all had a good weekend? To start the week in style I have this beautiful destination French wedding for you, courtesy of the lovely Gavin from Gavin Forster Photography. I do love a destination wedding and this French wedding really is lovely. The rain came down but this didn’t stop Sarah and Joe from having an amazing day. Sarah’s parents own a beautiful house in France so the couple decided what better place to hold their wedding. The went about creating lots of the different elements themselves and the results are wonderful. A truly beautiful wedding with some very special moment s captured perfectly by these stunning images.
‘It was a beautiful, colourful, rainy spring day, surrounded by our families. We picked the traditional things we wanted to do and skipped the rest’
Sarah and Joe were married on 2nd May 2015 at their parents’ house, Beynac, Dordogne, France. ‘We considered a lot of options: Yorkshire near where we live; the U.S. where Joe’s parents and lots of my family live. In the end we decided to keep it very small and make it a ‘destination wedding’ for everyone. We felt a bit restricted by some of the packages offered at traditional venues and realised we were crazy not to make the most of the beautiful venue we already had available to us. My mom was thrilled because she was already dreaming of family weddings when they bought the house in France 5 years ago! We had a total of 40 guests. We got engaged in August 2013, so planned it gradually over a year and a half. It took us a while to figure out what kind of wedding we wanted to have.
