Chateau La Durantie Wedding Photoshoot

Time to look back at a beautifully elegant photoshoot at Chateau La Durantie in the Dordogne, photographed by Nicholas Purcell Studio and coordinated by yours truly. When the wedding season ended, it was a fun day to be involved with. It is days like this when I remember what a great job I have; spending time with talented suppliers and photographers in such breathtaking chateaux and gardens, lucky me!

French wedding inspiration for an Autumn wedding

As the leaves continue to change to russet red and Christmas is nearly upon us, I cannot resist this ruby red wedding inspiration to share with you today! Little oak leaves and faded wooden tables and logs are contrasted by bright, shiny berries, petals and ranunculas. I particularly love the unique bouquets with the addition of autumn leaves...

Happy New Year!

Bonjour et bonne année, bonne santé!

I hope you had a great festive season and are not finding the cold days too much to bear. I am enjoying frequent mugs of hot chocolate by the wood burner but must say I often find myself daydreaming about the summer that's to come...alfresco dining, chilled rosé wines, lazy days by the river, a glace down on the quayside.

Hi everyone!

Autumn Weddings in France

Oh my! I cannot remember a more spectacular autumn than this year…the hot sunshine has continued throughout September and into October. Yes, the wooly jumpers have been brought down from the attic, but I’m still wearing my shades in the afternoons!
