An English adventure in the French countryside

Sadaf and Darren’s French Château Summer wedding


September 10th 2017

Sadaf and Darren came across a beautiful château while exploring alternative destinations for their wedding and knew instantly they had found the perfect place to gather all their friends and family for their big celebration. Château de la Canière, an exceptional 5 star château in the heart of Auvergne, France, had ample bedroom spaces, heated pool, hot tub, sports courts and was surrounded by beautiful French woodland. Surprisingly everyone was excited to attend.


The plan was very open, guest turn up over a variety of day and partook in a collection of games and adventures that Darren and Sadaf had personally designed to entertain them across their stay. Locally sourced and very tasty, fresh food was presented daily as well as samplings of fine wine that the local area had to offer.


The wedding day itself was a very relaxed and beautiful occasion. The couple got ready together, helping each other with everything from pampering face packs to tucking in clothes. The guests gathered in the great hall overlooking the dreamy woodland and Sadaf and Darren were married by their best man, acting as the minister, whilst their beloved pet dog sat by their side.


The evening then stepped up a gear as the disco lights came on, the tunes started to play and that, far too easy to drink, local wine reappeared. Props hit the dance floor, awards for skills were handed out and sore feet were reworded with gentle rubbing. These guys celebrated their love in true Cuckoo fashion!
