D espite being Provence and early Summer, the forecast for this one was not looking good for the evening, – the last thing you need for an outdoor ceremony and dinner on the terrace.┬áBy 8pm it predicted thunderstorms, so not looking good…!! But I am getting ahead of myself…

The first (and only) obstacle I faced in regard to this wedding was a French air traffic control strike. In the days leading up to this wedding is was not looking good, but then improved to a prediction of only 5% of Ryanair flights to France being cancelled.

Mine was one of those 5%, so a hastily booked road trip was arranged with a near 2000 mile door to door drive. That in itself had a number of issues, but I will not bore you with them suffice to say I made it to the wedding with time to spare. Just. Thanks French ATC…not!

Kaylie & Tom chose the gorgeous Chateau de Massillan near Orange in Provence for their wedding, a 2 day affair with picnic and BBQ on Day 01 followed by the actual wedding day on the 28th June.

The bride wore Johanna Hehir and the groom a Leonard Jay suit with the fabulous flowers by local florist Blandine.

The ceremony took place outdoors under the shade of the large plane trees in the chateau grounds where the picnic had taken place the previous day.
It was conducted by the couples good friend George (with accompaniment by the cicadas in the trees) and followed by a refreshing Prosecco and delicious canape reception.

The 4 course wedding breakfast was held in the open air internal courtyard of the chateau and that promised thunderstorm…?

Well it did come as predicted, dramatically with some lightning flashes during mains and a few drops during dessert, but it didn’t come down properly until everyone had moved inside for the dancing with band Beer Pressure.

Kaylie & Tom honeymooned in Provence & Paris followed by Miami & Belize later this year.

Finally, I actually photograph weddings all over France on a regular basis (4-5 times a year) and have a separate site which is firehorsephotographyfrance.com
