Poppy & Pete // A Chateau-cum-Campsite Wedding // Mouliherne, France

I’ve never been one for camping. The last time I ventured into an undersized, dew-induced tent was at Leeds Festival where I spent most of my time too tired to too inebriated to care. So when Poppy and Pete asked me to photograph their wedding at a campsite in France, I was a little apprehensive. How wrong could I have been!
What made this wedding so utterly unforgettable was the incredible and contagious sense of community. Arriving a few days before the wedding, Poppy and Pete’s family and friends spent sunny days wine tasting, chin wagging and really getting to know each other over tent poles and braai’s, campfires and marshmallows. I cannot explain how lovely it was to be immersed with the whole wedding party from the start, who’s warm welcome (big thanks to best man Craig for helping me with my tent!) set the tone for the whole weekend.
I can’t write this blog post without also mentioning Stu and Syb who own the Le Chant D’Oiseau campsite. Hilarious, kind and so hellbent on making every moment a huge success, the pair of them couldn’t have been better placed as hosts to this wedding.
Now on to Poppy and Pete. Pedro and Ginge. What can I say? Except that thank you doesn’t quite cover how grateful I am that I got to photograph your wedding. Every moment was filled with laughter and love from every angle and – cheesy as it is – I have the biggest grin on my face every time I think about your day. It was a wedding of epic proportions; from the guests, to the location, the blubbering-inducing speeches, and the utterly hilarious dance moves that really were going strong till 4am (shout out to the last lot standing!)!
Getting to photograph your day and catch those tender, special moments for you has been such an incredible pleasure. I can’t wait for you to come home from your honeymoon so you can see the rest of these shots.
But for now, here are a few highlights…xx
