Real wedding: Vineyard views at a chateau in the south of France

Alexandra and Alex took a chance on the weather when they chose to get married in October. However, their luck was in: the couple were able to celebrate their nuptials with a sun-drenched party on the roof terrace of their Languedoc chateau. Working to a peach and grey palette inspired by their venue, the pair used gold tea light holders and other metallic details to create a subtle Art Deco effect. Graphic designer Alex produced all their elegant stationery, based on 1920s French style. “The hardest part of planning was organising all the props and finishing touches,” says Alexandra. “Our parents brought a lot of things over from England in their car, and it really helped to have the venue’s in-house wedding planner.” Photography | Naomi Kenton
