Katherine and Sam’s Wedding at Chateau Rieutort: A Captivating Love Story

Welcome to the stunning world of weddings in the South of France! Join me as I recount the beautiful wedding day of Katherine and Sam at the enchanting Chateau Rieutort. As their wedding photographer, I had the privilege of capturing their special moments amidst the breath-taking backdrop of this picturesque venue.  Chateau Rieutort is just down the road from me, and I really enjoy shooting there.

Dinner & Speeches

As the sun began to set, everyone gathered for a sumptuous dinner and heart-warming speeches. The atmosphere was filled with love and laughter as family and friends shared touching stories, celebrating the couple’s union.  The couple’s entrance was a traditional french one – napkins waving from all the guests.

Golden Hour in the South of France

One of the highlights of the day was the golden hour shoot. Katherine and Sam took a moment away from the crowd to capture breath-taking portraits bathed in the warm, ethereal glow of the setting sun. The South of France’s golden hour offered a perfect backdrop, allowing for intimate and timeless photographs.  I love shooting at this time. The pressure of the day’s formalities are over and these portraits are relaxed and warm. The golden hour presents a magical opportunity to create unforgettable images, allowing you and your partner to escape the bustle and grab a moment to yourselves.

Dancing at Chateau Rieurtort

Capturing the joyous moments of wedding dancing outdoors, surrounded by fun-loving guests and a phenomenal DJ, is an absolute delight for any wedding photographer. As the beats fill the air and the energy levels soar, there’s an infectious excitement that sweeps through the dance floor. The vibrant atmosphere, combined with the open-air setting, creates an unparalleled sense of freedom and exuberance.

Katherine and Sam’s wedding at Chateau Rieutort was a beautiful celebration.  As a Chateau Rieutort wedding photographer, I had the honour of documenting their special day and preserving precious memories.

After Katherine received all her images she wrote me this five star review.  “I am blown away by Kerry’s work. Her photos are simply beautiful and she has captured our special day better than I ever could have imagined.
Neither my husband or I are particularly fond of having our photo taken, but Kerry was so professional on the day- we knew she was around but she was so subtle, even with the more staged photos, we didn’t feel awkward at all! We look natural and relaxed in the photos which is exactly what we wanted.
She has also managed to capture all our guests in the most perfect candid shots. I am so so pleased we chose her to be our wedding photographer and we have these beautiful memories forever – thank you Kerry!”
