Planning and styling a chateau destination wedding

Creating a welcoming space for your wedding guests

 Planning a destination wedding can be a challenge. Some good vendors that will collaborate or a wedding planner will for sure help you in this matter. Especially when it comes to styling and details like florals, tabletops etc. you might have the feeling, you are not really in control of everything. What I have learned during these last past years, is to always keep the surroundings in mind and look for the local beauty, the textures, the pigments and flora. Keep an eye on what your venue already has to offer like characterful furnishings or vintage tabletops.   It was a revelation seeing Amy Merrick creating this welcoming wedding table by just foraging some crude apple tree and blackberry branches. Ginny Au worked her magic on the composition of the table and the finishing touches were the vintage plates and cutlery. The authentic chairs and tables were offered by the venue - the Château de Bouthonvilliers which is located in the Dunois region, or more precisely in the Perche Göet, a charming region only one hour far from central Paris.   Creating a beautiful, honest and timeless space, especially if you are a lover of local treasures and authenticity, will be easier than you think and your wedding guests will be delighted by your reception!
