Chris Edmunds & Annabelle Lloyd-Hughes
Chateau Soulac, Bordeaux, France
Chateau Soulac is a stunning family home owned by Ballet Dancer Darcy Bussell. The Chateau stands within 8 hectares of land and is surrounded by Vineyards, perfect for a wedding i hear you say.
My brother was Chris’s best man for this wedding as they have been close friends for many years. I was delighted to be asked to cover this wedding in France for both Chris and Annabelle as i knew how much fun it would be, and how much cheese and wine would be readily available.
The Chateau overlooked the Dordogne which snaked off into the distance, lined with castles and manor houses joined together by miles of vineyards. We spent the 3 days swimming, playing tennis, petanque and just generally drinking fine wines, eating strong cheese and laughing a hell of a lot.
The ceremony was held on the lawn under a tree at the front of the chateau and the bride looked beautiful and the groom looked suave and almost as white as the bride. The sun was beating down and the whole weekend was just incredible.
Thanks Annabelle & Chris for inviting me along to what was a memorable trip. Good luck for the future and see you soon.
