KEL AND FRED’S FRENCH CHATEAU WEDDING
Today we have a lovely wedding in a French chateau shot and shared with us by Lionel of Pholio Photographie.
TELL US THE STORY OF HOW YOU MET
I would like to say it was great romantic story, but it was just an ordinary Friday night out 8 years ago that turned into something we both did not expect but embraced and loved till now.
WHAT WAS THE THEME AND INSPIRATION FOR THE BIG DAY?
Deciding on how we wanted our day to look and feel came easy to us. We turned one of our passion, which is travelling into our theme. Combining this with a rustic minimal look became a natural fit. With the little personal touches and attention to detail which made the wedding special to us from the paper fan (we had specially made from Philippines) to the suitcase we used for the cards/gifts (which belonged to Frederic’s grandad).
WHAT WAS THE MOST IMPORTANT AND MOST FUN PART FOR YOU?
The ceremony itself was the most important. Having all the people you love in one small room (some leaning through the window as we couldn’t all fit in the room) was purely a memory we won’t forget. Growing up, we dreamt of finding the one and having your parent/grandparent walk you down the aisle. So, making this a reality it felt surreal but natural.
The most fun was definitely the party! It was just all the night outs you had growing up rolled onto one. Having the people you love both family and friends of all ages come together and dance their socks off till 6am in the morning was epic.
Florist was Rev en Fleurs – great selection, easy to talk to and understood what we wanted. Definitely recommend to other people getting married in Perpigan area.
Espace La Deveze – the service before and after was fantastic. The food itself was the best out of the three we tried out in the area. Variety of food was great and we could tailor the food according to our taste.
TELL US ABOUT YOUR PHOTOGRAPHER
Going with Lionel from Pholio Photographie was without doubt one of the best decision we made for our wedding. We knew whoever we chose for our wedding, it was important that we both felt natural and at ease and he made us do that. He was so easy to get on with and he instantly knew how we wanted the day. His natural and effortless approach to taking pictures was also one of the reasons we chose him.
Mega Bass Perpignan – great service overall. Accommodating on what we wanted in terms of music and the lighting was just fantastic, creating the atmosphere which was perfect for our day.
