Wedding Photography Dordogne, France. Chateau La Durantie is one of the most stunning venues I’ve photographed in. Spread over more than 12 acres of land, it is situated in Perigord Vert a beautiful region in Dordogne in Southwest France. It was a lovely drive from Limoges, which is the closest airport, to the Chateau. I loved the French Country side, but will take a while to get used to driving on the right hand side, although I was not driving. The only restaurant in the village was closed by the time we reached there in the afternoon, so we had to satisfy ourselves with rustic french bread, most delicious foie gras and cornichons that we bought from the local store. The food in south west of France has always been my favourite. We were not here for food tasting , but to photograph a wedding of a lovely couple. Weather was great on the day we arrived and hail storm was predicted the next day, the day of the wedding. Although the Chateau is quite big and the Wedding could have taken place indoors, but its really rare to photograph Garden weddings and I really didn’t want it to rain on the day. With few drizzles, the Sun finally came out and brought out all the excitement with it. We were ready for the garden wedding.
The wedding had some great details. The stunning wedding cake was made by Groom’s mother. I loved the table plan though. I’ve never come across a table plan like that ever. The names of the guests were photoshopped onto sleeves of the records from 1980s to make it look as if they are the tracks of the album. It was a great day. Here are some of the pictures from the day.
