Oh France, you really do spoil us!

We could not believe our luck when Katy and Paddy enquired with us for their wedding in the Dordogne valley. We were already due to be in the area for another wedding and we just loved the sound of Katy’s plans.

An Irish couple planning a French wedding from their home in New Zealand could prove tricky but this pair pulled it off with aplomb.

Domaine de la Léotardie lies deep in the French countryside. Acres of meadow and forest, dotted with those typical French style buildings, this is the perfect venue for a celebration with friends and family from all corners of the world.

This day was all about the details. Intertwined throughout the day from the preparations to the beautiful woodland ceremony and into the afternoon drinks and games all the little touches helped make this day picture perfect.

With such a cool and laid back couple we were able to make the most of the romantic surroundings and that awesome evening light.

How better to finish off the best of days than having your first dance outdoors?

Such beauty, such atmosphere, such love!
