Kasia + Connor’s Romantic Chateau La Durantie Wedding
Spring is officially here so we’re excited to embrace it with Kasia and Connor’s beautiful wedding with an outdoor ceremony in France! Fine art Photography duo, Jacob and Pauline Photography captured the romantic day at Chateau La Durantie, such a romantic location and venue! Here they are all with all the details; “France is beautiful at any time of year, but is particularly stunning in the summer months, so making the trip to be Kasia and Connor’s Chateau la Durantie wedding photographer was a wonderful prospect. Kasia and Connor held their wedding at Chateau la Durantie in July, when the sun was shining and the chateau’s gardens were in full bloom. The chateau is in the scenic Dordogne region, about an hours drive from the airport at Limoges.
Kasia and Connor’s friends and family traveled mostly from the UK for the wedding, and were welcomed by beaming sunshine, which lasted for the entire wedding day. Connor prepared one of the most magical proposals we have heard of – planning a New Year’s trip which he left Kasia hints for – including a warm hat, a light bulb and a compass. Finally, he revealed that they were going to Tromso in Norway, to see the spectacular Northern Lights. The trip sounded amazing – husky sledging, a tour to see the aurora borealis for New Year’s Eve and a whale watching expedition on New Year’s Day! As Kasia and Connor posed for photos underneath the Northern Lights, Connor dropped to one knee and proposed. We now knew we had this iconic photograph as a benchmark for our wedding photography!
The day of the wedding was relaxed and full of laughter. Kasia and Connor’s huge dog ran around the venue, entertaining us, as well as the guests. Kasia got ready in a room in the chateau with her mother and bridesmaids. We had time for some bridal portraits, which is always a very calm, reflective time. Kasia looked stunning in her gorgeous wedding dress, with a delicate train cascading behind her. Meanwhile, Connor and his groomsmen relaxed with cigars and a game of pool, drinking Southern Comfort as they waited for the ceremony. We shot some great photographs of them hanging out together, with the vibrant colours from the billiards room contrasting perfectly with their classic suits!”
