Love and the Chateau de Marcay

Real Weddings: Linda & Pär

The Chateau de Marcay is a 15th century charm located just a bouquets throw from Chinon in Val-de-Loire, France. I had the pleasure of exploring this Loire Valley treasure while photographing the wedding of Linda and Pär. As I turned into the tree lined road which lead to the castle grounds, I instantly fell in love with the place. I could see why Linda and Pär traveled all the way from Sweden to get married there!

The guest rooms here are gorgeous… …and massive! This fulfills two of my three checklist items for the perfect room for your ‘getting ready’ wedding photos. They could have been a little brighter which would have made them 3/3 but it was a sunny day so I did get some nice dramatic lighting shots.

The grounds of the castle are pretty cool too! I was happy to see L&P decided on an outdoor ceremony. Having the castle looming in the background along with the rolling hills of the Loire Valley made for lovely scene setters. All in all, if you are considering getting married at the Chateau de Marcay, you are on the right track!
