Summer may be a distant memory, but there's no reason why we can't bask in this chateau wedding in France at the gorgeous Lartigolle. Featuring the venue's infamous festoon lit courtyard, green and white floral arrangements and a breathtaking Pronovias wedding dress worn by the beautiful bride. Are you sitting comfortably? Then we shall begin.

What Made Our Day Unique

The feeling you get from Chateau Lartigolle is like no other. It has this special, relaxed, fun energy that you can't quite put into words, it was the dreamiest of days, filled with so much love and laughter. We had dreamt of a laid back European feel, sitting in the courtyard, eating wonderful food, drinking delicious wine under the beautiful lights and that's exactly what we did. It was magic. We did not have to think about a thing all day, Team Lartigolle just made it all happen so seamlessly. Dancing in the courtyard under the stars with all our family and friends around us was definitely a big highlight of the day.

Chateau Wedding France

I can completely understand why having a chateau wedding in France is a dream come true for many couples, especially when the chateau is as beautiful as Lartigolle. The iron gates leading to the festoon lit courtyard is instantly recognisable, and equally as pretty by day as it is by night. Each moment captured by Bodart Studio Photography will fill your heart with joy, and your mind with ideas! Just wait until you see Lucie's Pronovias wedding dress too, a far cry from the bohemian gown she thought she'd choose, but oh so beautiful.

Inspiration & Styling

We wanted a relaxed fun vibe for our day, with the amazing help of Emma we created a soft, pale, floaty, romantic feel. For the tables we wanted everything to twinkle, we had cut glass, candelabras and lots of different sized vases with flowers running down the centre of the tables, it was loose and floaty but still felt modern. I love peonies and wanted them to be our main flower, Emma paired them with natural flowers, blush pinks, greens and creams. We had Festoon lights hanging in the courtyard and we wanted candles everywhere. It was just perfect and better than we could have ever imagined, it really was the most special day of our lives.

Lucie & Nick
Lucie and Nick's favourite part of the day was their first dance in the courtyard. They choose Hall and Oat's, 'you're making my dreams come true' as their first dance song and described it as perfection. If you're struggling to decide on a first dance song, read our article full of favourites from us and our readers.
