An elegant wedding at Chateau de Lisse. South of France. / Un mariage élégant au Château de Lisse. Sud de la France

An elegant and timeless wedding of Lucy and Jared, which took place in an old French castle Chateau de Lisse, in the South of France, unique and luxurious.
Here is what  Lucy tell us about her unforgetteble wedding:

"Family means everything to us, and given Jared is Australian & I’m English our families largely hadn’t met. We had been looking for a venue where we could have both our families stay, and also have the ceremony & reception all onsite.

There weren’t many places big enough in the UK, and Jared had decided it should be on this side of the world. France seemed like a location with lots of travel options (Planes, Trains, Driving or Ferry) and there were plenty of Chateau’s to choose from.
We settled on Chateau de Lisse thanks to the accommodation, travel & location. The ability to supply your own bar and its beautiful chapel were also deciding factors for us.

Once we’d decided on the venue, there was no going back and things started to fall into place. Our wedding stationary was designed by Jared and brought to live with illustrations done by my best friend, the amazingly talented Louise McGuire (nee Tanner). The dress was not what I’d wanted at all, but I fell in love with the feathers & ‘fun’ bottom. We wanted a relaxed feel over dinner, so we went with sharing plates and knew we wanted a free bar for guests in the evening. The converted horse trailer at the chateau was great.

We had a wonderful day, and Elena captured it brilliantly. We asked Elena to come later than usual (1:30 for a 2:30 ceremony) as we weren’t concerned about having photos of us getting ready, opting instead for more photos with our guests later in the day. From the moment Elena arrived though, she worked tirelessly to maximise the time with us. She still managed to do all the preparation photos, and stayed past our last dance to capture everything we wanted.

Over the course of the day she was everywhere, and yet unseen. Everyone remarked on how great she was, capturing us, our guests and the venue. She really listed to the style we wanted, and what we wanted to capture. She made us feel at ease and relaxed.
As if that wasn’t wonderful enough, Elena got us a selection of photos 2 days after the wedding and then sent us a beautifully presented usb stick within a month.

Honestly, she was a dream. I couldn’t recommend Elena enough.

We had a really wonderful wedding, and we are so grateful to our family & friends for travelling all that way to be with us."
