Katie& Paddy PHOTOGRAPHY BY ERICH MCVEY THREE DAYS IN THE DORDOGNE REGION OF FRANCE AT A BEAUTIFUL CHATEAU BECAME THE CELEBRATION OF A LIFETIME FOR THIS ENGLISH COUPLE. Katie was a little nervous about being the centre of attention as a bride, and for this reason always thought she would elope to a deserted beach one day. However, having realised that it’s all too infrequently in life that we take the time to celebrate, the couple started to see their wedding as a chance to toast not only their relationship, but everything they had achieved together, and their families and friends. From here, their vision grew, resulting in a three-day celebration at a beautiful French château. With thirty guests staying at the property for a weekend ‘mini break’, the holiday feeling was palpable, and the couple enjoyed the build-up almost as much as the big day. From Katie’s jubilant walk down the aisle (where she stopped to cuddle her granny and high five a friend) to the impromptu speeches and karaoke, it was a happy fête full of love and laughter.
