Natasha and Teejay’s Chateau de la Couronne wedding
Covering Natasha and Teejay’s wedding was a real privilege as a destination wedding photographer. The wedding took place at Chateau de la Couronne in Marthon France. Having only shot one destination wedding in the past I was very excited to have been asked to shoot a wedding in France. Chateau de la Couronne is an amazing venue with modern styling whilst still maintaining its authentic french character.
The day started off with Natasha’s prep in the bridal suite at chateau de la Couronne on the morning of her wedding. Natasha had taken her stylists from the UK over and her parents and bridesmaids were all on hand to help her get ready.
I also spent a little time capturing Teejay making himself look dapper, accompanied by the best man.
Weddings at Chateau de la Couronne
Once everyone was ready it was time for the wedding ceremony. Natasha and Teejay chose to get married outside. And with such a perfect backdrop as Chateau de la Couronne the scene was set for a fairytale wedding.
Wedding ceremonies abroad are often much more relaxed than UK ceremonies and this was the case here. Celebrant Jean Sait conducted a wonderful service with suitable doses of emotion and humour.

After the ceremony guests enjoyed drinks on the terrance and greeted the newly weds. This was the ideal time for me to capture some great natural photographs and moments before shooting the formals. With the sun being so strong we decided to do some more portraits later in the evening when the light was softer.
Once the wedding reception was over it was time to listen to the speeches. Photographing the speeches is a challenging part of the day because it’s all about the words, so as wedding photographers we have to do our best to tell the story of the words with our pictures.
Later into the evening the DJ got the dance floor rocking and there was some serious dancing going on until the early hours.
All in all I had a blast at Natasha and Teejay’s wedding at Chateau de la Couronne in France. If you’re looking for relaxed wedding photography please do contact me to have a chat about your day.
