Chateau Lagorce wedding photography in Bordeaux, France.

Kiarra and John got married at the beautiful Chateau Lagorce - chateau wedding venue set in the Dordogne area in Bordeaux, France. When Kiarra first got in touch with me, she wrote that she and John fell in love with Chateau Lagorce based on my photographs of other couples' weddings there, and it was just the biggest compliment to receive. A few e-mails later, this wonderful couple booked me as their photographer for the destination wedding in France, which they were planning all the way from Australia. Chateau Lagorce is one of my favourite French chateau wedding venues and I couldn't be more excited to photograph there again. 

Kiarra and John originally planned to get married somewhere local in Perth where they live, until Kiarra happened upon a picture on Pinterest of a couple that had been married in front of the Eiffel Tower. Kiarra and John had travelled together to Paris a few years earlier and fell in love with everything about the city. So, when she showed John the photo, he responded with 'Let's do it!' and their dream wedding in France grew from there. The bride and groom fell in love with Chateau Lagorce - a French castle located just outside Bordeaux city. Anna - a wedding planner who runs the Chateau was a dream to work with and made planning the destination wedding easy for the couple.

Kiarra and John wanted their wedding day to be about each other and their close families and friends who travelled from Australia and Ireland to celebrate. By planning an intimate wedding in France, Kiarra and John made their guests feel very special indeed in such a beautiful setting as Chateau Lagorce. I loved their relaxed approach to the wedding day and all the personal details they planned. The theme of adventure came about for obvious reasons, and there were nods to it in a wooden welcome sign and guestbook inspired by film 'UP'. The colour theme was natural with touches of kraft, rosemary and blush. The beautiful lush bride and bridesmaids' bouquets and wedding reception flowers were created by Lady Brindille. Kiarra's uncle, who is a wedding planner in Australia decorated the outdoor ceremony area with lush foraged foliage.

Despite the fact that the details were important to Kiarra and John, I love that they didn't loose sight of what really mattered to them - their love for each other. Their wedding was a truly wonderful and beautiful celebration of their marriage. There were happy tears, lots of laughter and the whole day was filled with love, affection and emotions. It was a privilege to photograph Kiarra and John's Chateau Lagorce wedding! Thank you so much for having me as part of your very special day :)
