Nestled amongst the forested hills of Provence, Chateau Les Crostes is a gorgeous French chateau wedding venue – perfect if you’re planning an outdoor wedding ceremony followed by an al fresco meal. If you’re a regular visitor to my blog, you’ll know that I really enjoy travel & exploring the unknown with insatiable wanderlust. Destination weddings give me the opportunity not only to travel, but to also photograph weddings in some of the most beautiful settings in the world.
Keri & Mark’s black tie wedding day took place in June this year. A vision in her bepoke Suzanne Neville wedding gown, Keri married her dashing groom Mark, beneath the trees with the rolling French countryside as a backdrop. Guests flew in from all over the world to enjoy their destination wedding day with them on this gorgeous Summer’s day, while enjoying chilled champagne and macarons on the patio.
Honestly? You don’t get a more perfect setting than this. I really enjoyed exploring Chateau Les Crostes and for Keri & Mark’s couple portraits, olive trees dipped in golden late afternoon sun, created the most amazing backdrop. The day was planned and coordinated by Fabienne from Elian Concept Weddings & Events and it was really lovely working together for the first (and hopefully not the last) time.
I’m off to France again in August to photograph another lovely English couple’s destination wedding and then in September I’ll be joining Grace & Declan in Malta for their destination wedding.
Here are a few of my favourites from the day. Enjoy!
