Our DIY FairyTale Chateau Wedding in South West France – Details

Saturday 6th September 2014, I put on my Jimmy Choo’s and married my first love. Our wedding was a Fairytale.

We married at Chateau Riveneuve du Bosc in southwestern France in front of 28 immediate family and friends. Our wedding was intimate, incredibly personal and focused on us. Most importantly it was informal and fun with plenty of laughter and tears of joy.

Set in a quintessentially French chateau, the theme was Rustic Romance with a few shabby chic elements. I wanted it to be elegant and romantic with simple but chic decor made up of flowers, candelabras, perfume bottle vases and lace. We combined hues of soft blush pink and grey with peonies, roses and gypsophila.

I’ll split my wedding into a few blog posts, otherwise they could become very long. So, for now, here are a few images of the details:
