Chateau Labistoul, Cordes-sur-Ciel, France wedding day portrait after the civil ceremony at the castle
This intimate marriage took place in South West France in Toulouse and Cordes-sur-Ciel. The bride wanted a unique and poetic marriage, completely representing her style and personality. She did not choose a white wedding dress in accordance with tradition, but wore a red dress instead, setting the tone and color of the wedding.
This was not a large wedding, and the couple chose to celebrate with a few friends and close family members instead. The civil ceremony took place in the magnificent city hall of Toulouse. The son of the bride presented the wedding rings on a dream catcher, perfectly fitting the whimsical and romantic atmosphere of the day.
After the ceremony, the guests moved to Cordes-sur-Ciel for cocktails and the evening wedding reception at Château Labistoul, a small 11th century castle specializing in small weddings. Before cocktails, the couple went for a stroll in Cordes-sur-Ciel, which is a medieval city, a mecca of Occitan culture linked to the history of the Cathars. Despite a few delays and obstacles, bride, groom and their guests never let anything interfere with their joy! Overall it was a beautiful wedding full of happiness.
