GORGEOUS LILAC SPRING WEDDING IN FRANCE

Chateau de Challain wedding photographer in France

Welcome to the amazing lilac spring wedding of Jin Jin and Ethan. This is a recent wedding I shot as a wedding photographer in France. Jin Jin and Ethan come from Shanghai, China and they had a dream of having a destination wedding, so they chose to have a fairy tale wedding at the Chateau de Challain in France. Located in the heart of Loire Valley, Chateau Challain was the perfect choice for the wedding with it’s early spring and predictable weather of this time of the year.

Lilac inspired Wedding photography

Lilac and lavender inspired weddings has been very popular for many years. What is not to love about those gorgeous looking flowers and also they smell so divine. And nothing says more spring than lilacs, right?

Did you know that Lilacs originated in Southeast Europe and are a very popular part of Mediterranean culture? They symbolise spring and renewal. And Lilacs belong to the same family as the olive tree.

Love this bluebell forest – if you want to see or shoot in it, it’s got to be April. Blue bells perfectly complemented the purple wedding palette range. It almost seemed that they where there on purpose.

Look at those table floral decors. They complement purple lilac style. Single tulip lying on every plate. And add that amazing lilac smell to all of that and you will love this wedding as much as I did.
