Our Destination Wedding at Chateau de la Bergeliere, La Flocelliere, France

After a lovely morning and deliciously bubbly breakfast earlier, the church chimed three o clock.

We finished up getting ready...

Our bouquets had been freshly picked and gathered up from the gorgeous hydrangeas in the gardens.

Then, dogs in tow, we emerged from La Bergeliere.

We were so excited to meet our family, waiting on the grass beneath the tree.

Utterly chilled and oh so relaxed, Andrew wore flip flops and I wore flat Toms. We had Apollo on heel, joining us as we meandered down onto the lawns.

It had taken quite a few attempts in the loft, walking around with a 3m organic lace veil to teach the dogs not to play with it.

We crossed the lawns and Simon and Garfunkel played, 

There, in front of our parents and siblings, made a very unique and spiritual commitment.

The beautiful verse and vows, written by Magali from Unique Ceremonies, included laughter, and love.

Laughter and smiles form the basis of my values, and her words were a perfect summary of who we are..

We had a few words to exchange to one another in the presence of those we love dearly,

Then, gave commitment in a knot tying ceremony - literally tying the knot!

Then, after smiles, laughter and tears, we said our I do's! 

We threw our arms around our loved ones and couldn't stop smiling.

Our gorgeous ethereal sisters looked stunning, and we were so grateful that they could be with us to share this moment.

With a simple soundtrack playing, blue skies shining, it was a truly perfect moment and we couldn't be happier!

My now husband looked gorgeous, laid back and chilled...

While I simply couldn't contain my excitement to be able to call him my husband. 

With music playing, bubbles flowing, laughter filling the grounds, we sauntered along the courtyard.

While the dogs looked on, watching as we played games...

We made our way onto the lawns for a few well behaved compared images...

Eventually I succeeded in composure...
