Its great to be able to say we seem to be making quite a habit of visiting France to film weddings and specifically Chateau La Durantie which is always a pleasure. This was our third wedding at this Chateau and Im not sure what it is about the place but its like a home away from home in some respects. Its always a very relaxed environment, the weather is always nice and I just love outdoor weddings. If you would like to know more about our international service check out our page on filming in France for more details. I guess on a whole outdoor weddings do have their own set of challenges but all in all it makes for great footage, and who doesnt enjoy working outdoors on a sunny day.
Our couple this time were Irene and Karim, they were so cool to work with and took everything in their stride. We shot some great stuff the evening prior to the wedding as everyone got to know each other at a barbecue they had organised at the Chateau. It was a great way to start the weekend and a pretty awesome party!! On the day of the wedding Irene’s brother took over the kitchen and cooked some amazing food for everyone (he is a highly respected chef). The ceremony ran late which was exciting and the day just flew by from then on. I cant remember a more hectic schedule but everything came together well and a crazy party followed.
The edit is a slight move away from tradition and in keeping with the couples request we have tried to retain very much a ‘French’ feel to it, I just love some of the slo-mo in the highlights and the way things flow. Hope you enjoy.
