Chinese wedding in France – chateau wedding – destination wedding photographer

Meet Min and Yuan at their Chinese wedding in France. Late August was the time they chose, I like late August a lot – be it France, England or Italy – late August has one of the best lights of the year – warm, yellowish, predictable.
The couple wanted a Chateau wedding in France so they went with the most obvious choice  – Chateau de Challain. This goes without saying that Chateau Challain is my favourite wedding venue anywhere. Period. I’ve been a wedding photographer in this Chateau countless times, shooting about 5-10 weddings there a year.
So, about the wedding – Min and Yan come from Beijing, they are currently in France for business, I believe. But there’s one last thing they want to do before getting back to China – that’s to get married, the French way. Adding a touch of Asia, like tea ceremony, several wedding gowns and a prolonged photoshoot, we got a good mix of European and Asian wedding. Very interesting for me as a chateau wedding photographer.
By now they’re long back home, but the thing with wedding photos is that they live on and both them and me, we can always look back at them and keep our memories fresh.
Thank you guys for having me as your wedding photographer.
Wedding bookings for the next season are open, please get in touch through contact page. For other weddings I’ve shot in this venue, please go here.
