Denva & Blair
The Château Saint Julien is a wedding venue where dreams come true. This French Chateau located in the Loire Valley has everything a princess could imagine for her fairy-tail wedding. And if you are dreaming of an outdoor ceremony like Denva & Blair, then the first thing I would say is “WOW” – a cathedral of arching trees with a white stone chateau as a backdrop is on offer! This is the exact spot where the lovely Australian couple said, “I do”.
To help everything run like clockwork, Tiphaine from Chateau Avenue, was awesome. Throughout the day I saw her dashing back and forth, left and right, up and down (ladders), and single handedly lit over 100 candles. Hats off to her!
I had the pleasure to meet and work alongside Pierre-Yves of A PY FILM. It’s true to say that photographers and cameramen compete for the same moments during a wedding. Such a combo doesn’t always match and in the past I’ve found that shots can be missed due to a photographer/cameraman misfit. PY was like a old friend and the ‘P+P’ combo snapped together perfectly.
Despite the blazing sun, Denva & Blair were so cool on the day. So relaxed and open to ideas, Denva was even up for my crazy idea of attaching a GoPro to her bouquet! To capture the bouquet toss from this unique perspective was such fun… footage coming soon 😉 Thank you guys for trusting me and being such a fun couple to work with!
I’ve been lucky enough to have photographed many weddings in the Loire Valley region of France, but never at the Château Saint Julien. Though in September this year I will return again to photograph another, watch this space… …I can’t wait 🙂
