Todays destination wedding in Castelnaud-de-Gratecambe was captured by the lovely Katie Kav Photography and featured a whole host of beautiful details that we are very excited to share. Family and friends pitched in to make this beautifully chilled out wedding a reality with Justine’s taking charge of the wedding cake and their friends organising the flowers. Her beautiful dress was sourced second hand proving that you don’t need to spend a fortune to look drop dead gorgeous on your wedding day and the rest of the bridal party looked very pretty in pink.

From Katie Kav

“When Justine contacted me to see if I would go to France to photograph their wedding I jumped at the chance. I was still living in Australia. This was a chance to work in France and plan a little holiday afterwards. I didn’t meet Justine & Patrick until the night before the wedding. We did Skype and email a lot in the run up to the wedding. It felt like meeting a Pen Pal when I finally met Justine the night before. A very glamorous Pen Pal.

Justine and Patrick met when both of them were living in Dubai. The fell in love there. A spate of bad luck meant that Patrick had to return to Ireland. Justine thought that would mean the end for them, but they continued to write. Last summer they met up in London and Patrick proposed on the London Eye.

What I love about destination wedding photography (the weather is a given) is the intimate nature of them. Generally everyone is staying in the same place and they all get to know each other. This wedding was so laid back, relaxed and beautiful. Did I mention the reception venue was Justine’s mothers house in a village called Castlenaud-du-Gratecambe, an hour and a half south of Bordeaux. The sunflowers were in bloom and had their heads up for this fabulous day of love and laughter.”
