Chateau de Lartigolle Wedding : Michaela + Chris
2019 – take me back! In April I was thrilled to fly out to Pessan near Toulouse to capture the wedding of Michaela and Chris at the beautiful Chateau de Lartigolle.
Being an April wedding, the usual South of France weather was not guaranteed, and upon arrival it was rain reminiscent of Manchester. The day before the wedding I had a wander around the local town of Auch and sampled some local food and wine (rude not too). In the evening I met Michaela, Chris and their guests for a pre wedding meal and drinks at the nearby Chateau Labarthe, it was clear to see the anticipation and excitement was building, and that a lively wedding day was to come.
The rain (mostly) stayed away on the wedding day. After a morning of snooker, champagne and getting ready, the beautiful ceremony took place outside the Chateau. It was a little cold to eat outside, so guests headed to the spectacular atmospheric cave beneath the chateau for food, drinks and speeches. In the evening the cave rave began, with the band “The Fuzz” keeping the dance floor bouncing into the early hours.
It was such a honour to be able to capture the story of the day. Michaela + Chris are a couple so obviously in love and it was great to see so many friends and family make the journey to France to celebrate with them. A few of my favourite storytelling frames from the day below.
I’m flying across for another Chateau de Lartigolle Wedding later this year and really can’t wait to be back. The setting is spectacular and the team are super nice, the perfect combination!
