Fancy a French château wedding? Well, here it is.
In the end of July, on a Tuesday, Parshin got her Eric at one of the most beautiful locations I’ve been to.
Château la Durantie is probably a dream place for anyone at any moment – to just stand in front of it is a breathtaking experience. And inside there are so much history and fantastic details to enjoy.
This is where Parshin and Eric had their preparations. Parshin with her bubbly bridesmaids in one part of the château and Eric in the other. Every detail was thought through. From the macarons, to the love letter and string quartet playing at the ceremony.
Starting with a somewhat traditional Swedish ceremony outside, afterwards everyone entered the château to witness the Persian ceremony indoors. Two cultures meeting is always a great thing to watch and this day was no exception. Watching the grooms mother take on the Persian traditions warmed my heart.
After a beautiful portrait session in the small village Lanouaille nearby the reception took place in the garden outside of the château and it was lovely. Many beautiful speeches and a lot of tears followed by a lovely first dance, party, sparklers, knife dance (Persian tradition), cake cutting, more party and then pool party summed this wonderful day up. My head was almost exploding with all the impressions I got during the day, but it was so worth it. Just see for yourselves.
