Chateau Soutard, Bordeaux
The South of France is one of the best wedding destinations. Endless choices of gorgeous French Chateau to have the perfect wedding full of romance and elegance. France is well known for a lot of things, wine being among the top ones. Everyone loves a glass of French wine, right? When was invited to participate in this editorial, I was enchanted by the location. Chateau Soutard is a gorgeous French Chateau, literally in the middle of acres of vineyards! And to make it even better, it has a view towards Saint-Emilion, a picturesque little village that is considered as Unesco world heritage. The benefits of planning a wedding in a French Chateau is that you get to have the most amazing background for your dinner reception! An advice I would like to share with you here, is that always take into consideration the background and the natural environment of your wedding location. Incorporating details and having a color palette that is in harmony with your venue, will make your guests enjoy a fuller experience. In this case, Miss Rose by Perrine, the florist, together with Before the Moon Events, the wedding planner, created a centerpiece of the table full of vine leaves. The stationery had a wooden piece to showcase the wooden roots of the vineyards and the wooden barrels the wine is stored.
A principle of mine is to present an editorial as close as possible to a real wedding, so couples can be trully inspired and envision their own wedding. Thus, I kept all posing in a very natural way.
And as we couldn’t have enough of the beautiful vineyards surrounding the property, we decided to have an al fresco welcome dinner right in the middle of them. The South of France is proven to be one of the most picturesque places full of beautiful venues with great architecture and history. Hope you found some inspiration on this wedding editorial.
