Chateau De Brives Spring Editorial

On a beautiful sunny day in March, I was invited to take part in a very special editorial shoot to promote gorgeous new French Chateau wedding venue, Chateau de Brives. The chateau is situated near Cognac in the Charente region of South West France, and features the most stunning spiral staircase I think I have ever set eyes on! It is owned by Sarah & George, who have lovingly transformed the once run-down cognac chateau into a beautiful family home, filled with the treasures they have collected over the years through their antiques business. Sarah & George have now decided to open their home to couples wanting to get married in France, so enlisted the help of wedding planner Samantha from Best Events Co, and a team of talented local suppliers, to create a beautiful editorial to showcase the venue to future brides and grooms and provide them with imagery for their website and social media. Channel 4’s Escape to the Chateau DIY have been following their journey, so the shoot day was filmed – adding another element of excitement (and nerves!) to the day. The show should air in Spring 2020, hopefully also featuring their first real wedding. Watch this space!
