YOUR FRENCH CHATEAU REHEARSAL DINNER

Chateau Martinay offers an incredible backyard with long, rich views of grass and forests. Lounges were set up on the grounds of the chateau to create a relaxed feeling. Guests explored the premises while gathering with the bride, groom, and their loved ones. WEP in Provence helped to arrange all the required furniture, while Type A Society created this rehearsal lounge design!

Flowers by Celine adorned a simple yet elegant rehearsal dinner table. Guests enjoyed eating French cheese and grapes while sipping on Provencal wine and celebrating the two lovebirds. The scene became a relaxed and beautiful backdrop for the heartfelt moments this couple will remember years later. As I took their portraits, I felt sure that they would look back and smile when remembering this as one of the best weekends of their lives. Simply a perfect French chateau rehearsal dinner!

As a French wedding photographer, I truly enjoyed being part of this intimate celebration at the gorgeous Chateau Martinay. Want to read more about the beautiful Chateau life? You can browse another article about Chateau Martinay--complete with photographs--on my website.
