Chateau weddings in the Dordogne

Hi everyone!

Well, Spring is upon us, the leaves are unfurling a little more each day and the wild flowers are covering the fields. As the wedding season approaches, I am busy helping my brides to choose their suppliers, consider menu choices and decide on colours, flowers and decorative details.

I would like to share 2 stunning wedding venues that I have recently visited which both offer the perfect setting for a romantic French wedding.

Beaujolais Nouveau Day in France

As promised, thought I'd let you know my thoughts on the bottle of Beaujolais Nouveau that I bought yesterday and consumed last night(for research purposes I hasten to add!)

I opted for the Georges Dubœuf one as this year's label is a pretty pink floral affair (can you imagine the wine buffs basing their selection on the colour of the label designs?)

Le Beaujolais nouveau est arrivé!

Today(Thursday) at one minute past midnight it was the official start of "Beaujolais Day", when the red wine made from the Gamay grapes in the Beaujolais region of France is released throughout France and across the world. This "Beaujolais Day" sees races to get the first bottles to markets around the world, with many publicity events and heavy advertising.
