“Sometimes in the winds of change we find our true direction.”
Welcome to the full wedding post of Alison + Jamie at CHATEAU DE SAINT-LOUP in France on the 5th Sept 2015. A stunning French chateau venue basking in glorious sunshine was the setting for two of the nicest people I’ve had the pleasure of being asked to photograph. The whole affair from the Thursday when I met their family over dinner, their pre wedding drinks and bbq at the chateau on the Friday and all the way through the wedding itself was a magical. We even sneaked in a quick pre wedding shoot.
I had such an amazing experience being around Alison & Jamie’s family & friends over the 3 days that will last me forever and I hope the 2 blog posts about this wedding (yeah there was that many images to post), the family bbq, the pre wedding shoot and the wedding will do them justice for all of their fine detail in preparation, venue selection and the day itself deserves.
Again to Alison & Jamie, thank you from me and Carey & Dan for all your friendship and to you both on the many years of happiness together. My big thanks must go to Carey Sheffield who shot alongside me that day and who’s images were used below for the bridal prep, amazing work, while I was sunning myself with the groom at a wine tasting session, so thank you!
