The Best Ever Springtime Elopement in France

Elopement in France

An elopement in France is, by all means, a very chic way to say “I Do”. So Brittney and Chris chose to elope in France as it is undoubtedly one of the most romantic places on earth.

Where to elope in France?

France offers many possibilities and places for your French elopement. If you’d like to see more galleries of French elopements, click here. But Brittney and Chris chose Chateau de Challain as their luxury French Chateau elopement venue.

I’ve been working for this Chateau for the past 10 years as a wedding photographer, so I can offer them the most precious elopement photos there are. I know every angle and every corner there. I know exactly when the sun will hit the sweet spot in the woods or in the rooms, or what flowers are there in the woods and meadows, so here I give you – the bluebells, a forest every wedding photographer can dream of.

The young and adventurous couple wanted their elopement totally stress-free, so they invited only the most loved ones to their French elopement – themselves. No drunk uncles, no uninvited exes, no crying babies, just themselves This created the most romantic atmosphere we could hope for, and that made my day very easy.

When to have an elopement in France?

This was a spring elopement in early April, so every tree and bush was blooming. As I said, the forest was in full bloom with bluebells that I love so much. I almost felt intoxicated by all those floral scents (and hairspray) in the air. I believe the couple was too.

Their wedding ceremony was held in a gazebo in front of the Chateau Challain. Behind the gazebo, you can see the pond and wildflower fields. All the surroundings of the place are perfect for a wedding day photoshoot. We went to the small forest, we had a laugh at the blooming sakura trees, and we even went to the canola field nearby. But the best part of the photo shoot was the marvelous interior of the castle. It allowed us to do some fashion magazines like bride and groom portraits.

Wedding photoshoot

Oh, I love the interior of Chateau Challain. It is perfect for photo shoots, every room is decorated differently. It reminds me a bit of Boho-chic mixed with the aristocracy. You can finally let your eight-year-old self out and get carried away with all the dreams of your childhood about Kings and Queens. The beds are too big to sleep alone. And there are so many rooms you can easily get lost in the Chateau. So you need to stay close not to get lost there. The same as in life. Stay close my dear brides and grooms.

I was happy and honored to be a part of Chris and Brittney’s special day. Thank you both, you were great! I wish you all the best.
