Hayley & Daniel @ Chateau Allure Du Lac France

The luxurious lakeside Chateau Allure Du Lac, located in the western part of the Loire Valley near Grez-Neuville France, was the destination for the wedding of Daniel and Hayley. We met a relaxed Hayley and her bridesmaids in the tower suite bedroom for bridal prep photographs. This circular well lit room was great for photography. Across the other side of the Chateau we found Daniel and his Best man preparing for the big day ahead. In the courtyard and grounds family and friends, who had travelled to rural France for this special occasion, were making ready for this special day. Beautiful bride Hayley was escorted by her farther and her beautiful bridal party across a bridge to the waiting guests. On an island out in the lake a truly heartfelt ceremony was performed under a canopy of trees. Background music was supplied a local musical trio. Daniel and Hayley exchanged vows and rings and were pronounced husband and wife. The lakeside terrace was a magnificent spot for the drinks reception. While guests toasted the happy couple we took the opportunity for photographs on the lawn before inviting the whole party round to the front of the Chateau. Further group shots along with bride and groom only pictures were on the main steps of this magnificent Chateau. The wedding breakfast was outside in the courtyard. Speeches following the meal were again heartfelt and had just finished when a thunderstorm forced the bridal party into the Chateau. With the prospect of the rain continuing the disco was arranged inside in the Grand salon and the first dance commenced the evening music. An evening meal was arranged in the Silver Reception Room where the cake cutting was carried out. Thanks to Chateau Du Lac for help and assistance. A big thank you to Daniel and Hayley, your family and friends were tremendously helpful and friendly, enjoy your sneak preview.
