Manoir de Longeveau
Rob & Sophie Destination Wedding
This was my first destination wedding and it was everything I’d hoped it would be and more! The Manoir de Longeveau is a former Cognac Estate on the Charente / Dordogne border in South West France. I went to school with the groom Rob so I was very honoured when he asked me to be his photographer and excited to photograph a wedding is such a beautiful setting. Among the guests were many people I knew from my home town so I was made to feel very welcomed and treated as a guest myself which was absolutely lovely. There was a welcome BBQ on the Friday night where everyone had the chance to relax and get to know one another before the wedding the following day. Friday had been grey and rainy all day but thankfully the sun got it’s hat on for Saturday and the weather was glorious all day. Which was timely as both the ceremony and wedding breakfast where held outside in the fantastic setting of the Manoir de Longeveau which made this venue truly special. Sophie was a very cool, calm bride taking everything in her stride as she prepared to walk down the aisle. Her groom Rob laughed and joked as he waited with his bestmen for his bride to arrive. And as Sophie approached on her father’s arm she took everyone’s breath away. She looked absolutely stunning accompanied by their adorable daughter Imogen as the flower girl and I don’t think there was a dry eye in the crowd. It was an emotional ceremony, Rob biting his lip to hold it in as he took his vows with his gorgeous new wife. It was clear to see the love and affection felt for this couple as their guests looked on in awe at this magical moment. The celebration continued as the wedding got into full swing enjoying everything that the Manoir de Longeveau had to offer. The speeches were brilliant, some of the funniest I heard in a very long time, they had everyone crying and laughing in all the right parts. And the party continued late into the night as everyone rejoiced in the happy couple. I loved everything about this wedding, the setting, the guests, the atmosphere, it was all just perfect. Rob and Sophie are a fantastic couple and it was truly an honour to photograph their special day. Massive congratulations Sophie and Rob!! xx
