“The pictures are stunning, we can’t stop looking at them to the point that it’s wanting us to do it all over again. We have scrolled through the photos about 5 times and absolutely LOVE them. Thank you so much for capturing our day so perfectly.” I’m starting to lose count how often I’ve been a Chateau d’Urval wedding photographer and comments like this make it such a rewarding and humbling experience.
It’s safe to say Chateau d’Urval is one of my favourite venues on the planet! Firstly it’s a chateau in one of the prettiest parts of France. That would usually be enough to excite most wedding photographers. But it also oozes a wealth of character and is charming without trying too hard. So it’s no surprise that I was pretty excited when I received Abi and Seb’s enquiry for their wedding here.
I’m always amazed how one venue can look so different depending on how it’s styled for a wedding and each couple and their guests bring their own personalities and energy to the occasion. Chateau d’Urval has a laid back feel and in a way it’s typical of the surrounding area and people. Abi and Seb embraced the vibe and their wedding was relaxed, emotional, fun, full of love and laughter. The way a good wedding should be. Thank you Abi and Seb for having me along to photograph your day, it was a pleasure to be a part of it.
Thanks to Kate at Marry Me in France for her expert planning, her calm in dealing with a downpour seconds before the ceremony started and also for looking after me during the day. I’m already looking to my next wedding there.
