“Natural photos which captured the day as we remember it without us even noticing you were there! You were relaxed, easy to work with & fitted in great with our guests.”
Chateau les Merles Wedding Photos | Dordogne | France
Amy & Matt met as neighbours in their apartment building in Kelham Island, Sheffield. Matt proposed under the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco. He had been carrying a ring around in his wallet for 2 weeks whilst on a trip through Iceland and West coast America! Here’s their wedding day adventure in their own words:
Chateau les Merles is the perfect destination wedding venue in France. It’s a home from home. Superb service, delicious cuisine and beautiful surroundings. These guys discovered it on day one of a weekend trip viewing potential venues and never went anywhere else. You just know when you find your perfect venue! Music is really important to the pair. It just so happens the band they booked live in the French Riviera but a few of them come from Barnsley! Which is where Amy & Matt live! Performing at a work event of Amy’s in St Tropes a few years ago, she took their card knowing she had always wanted to get married in southern France. A highlight was Chuck Berry – You never can tell 🙂
Tell us about the Ellis Bridal wedding dress
My dress was elegant, lightweight and comfortable by designer Ellis Bridal. Purchased at Limelight Bridal in Huddersfield. Matt wore a Hugo boss suit with Joesph Cheaney shoes and belt.
Any advice for those planning a destination wedding?
Brides, just relax and enjoy your day. Be prepared but also be prepared to just let things go on the day and enjoy it. If there’s anything that isn’t quite right you and your guests probably won’t even notice on the day! Do things just for you – not because it’s how it’s usually done or how others would want it.
The biggest surprise we had on our wedding day was the weather! 36 degrees was much hotter than we could ever have imagined!
