wedding in Perigord, La Durantie

To photograph a wedding chateau la Durantie is a very nice day. I know i will share emotions in a very peacefull chateau with amazing possibilty of lighting. I had several time the opportunity to come there and it’s always a great experience to meet new family and people but with the same behaviour and feeling regarding the photos. Very consistent with my way of beeing there. Louise and George come from UK, a blend between France, Switzerland and England. I started to speak to the bridsmaids when i realized they had a french accent (mee too..) finally all the gang was french but coming from everywhere in the world, that’s life… A typical english spirit on the men side, elegant but joking… let’s go for an overview…
