Sam popped the question on a freezing weekend city break in Copenhagen. We knew we wanted to get married within the year but instead of a London wedding we wanted something a little bit different. My mum and step-dad own a house in the south of France so that, paired with the fairly reliable weather, made it seem like an obvious choice.
We got married officially on Friday 18th September in my family’s local Marie in Ventenac-Cabardes then said our vows in front of family and friends on Sunday 20th September 2015 at L’Abbaye-Chateau de Camon, France.

Deciding to get married in France wasn’t exactly a hardship, but finding the right venue proved more difficult. We wanted to get married in France, mainly because my mum and step-dad have a house just outside of Carcassonne, but also because we feel so relaxed when we’re out there.Others / Unknown
The chateau wasn’t easy to find - my mum searched through a list of 26 to find it. While we knew we wanted something traditional with some rustic charm, we quickly learnt that French wedding criteria isn’t the same. Camon had it all and meant we could hire the whole place out for the entire weekend.Others / Unknown1 Of 29Others Unknown2 Of 29Others Unknown3 Of 29Others Unknown4 Of 29Others Unknown5 Of 29Others Unknown6 Of 29Others Unknown7 Of 29Others Unknown8 Of 29Others Unknown9 Of 29Others Unknown10 Of 29Others Unknown
