Vibrant and Stylish British Outdoor Wedding in France

Sophie and Daniel’s Vibrant and Stylish British Outdoor Wedding in France was nothing short of playful and elegant, and it had us dreaming of the beautiful autumn days ahead. Now don’t get me wrong, Britain has some glorious autumn days, but I prefer France for an autumn wedding as the weather is so much more predictable.

Early September wedding in France

So, that is probably why Sophie and Daniel chose to get married in this stunning French castle – Chateau de Challain. And here we are in early September in the rural Loire Valley, one of the greatest regions in France. In a peaceful village Challain la Potherie. The couple’s priority must be to have fun and make for an unforgettable experience for their guests. And they nailed it with the help of their wedding planner Cynthia Nicholson. Their wedding day included a beautiful outdoor wedding ceremony, a whole lot of nature-inspired decors, and late-night sparkles before the cutting of the cake.

Dog-friendly wedding venue

Well, I also must mention their “guest of honor” their fluffy black friend DOG. Sorry, I don’t remember his name, but he accompanied us throughout the whole wedding day and barked over his shoulder for us to hurry up. Because the wedding dinner will get cold, that’s the most important part of the day in the dog’s life. How do I know it? I have one of those little buggers myself. So, with that said, Chateau Challain is a dog and probably all pet- friendly wedding venue in France. I have seen there a lot of pets: dogs, cats, donkeys, Al Pacas, otters living in the pond not to mention countless horses I’ve had the pleasure of working with during weddings there.

Are you ready to see an adorable Sophia and friendly Daniel, a reception that belongs in a magazine, and a firework-filled ending? Keep scrolling to see every detail with me- Janis Ratnieks , the wedding photographer.
