Prayssac. You've probably never heard of it and neither did I until about 5 years ago. But brought there Mellaney and Joachim changed when they got married there and I was allowed to take the photos. What I didn't know then was that in the years that followed, I was allowed to return to this magical place more than 10 times for the always wonderful weddings with FATE Or Happiness. This super team consists of none other than – you may have guessed it – Mellaney and Joachim who decided after their own wedding to Château Camp del Saltré to operate and organize weddings for Dutch couples who want to get married in the South of France.
In the meantime, Prayssac is pretty much my second home in France. With our camper van fully loaded, Carine and I drove past the vineyards of the Cahors wine region. It is always quite a temptation not to stop everywhere to 'have a taste'. But with a bus full of stuff through the narrow, winding streets, that is not a good idea. Fortunately, Camp del Saltré and the adjacent vineyard were not far away. The castle is located on a spacious estate with plenty of beautiful space to park our bus. We quickly found a beautiful, somewhat secluded spot at the front of the site, sheltered by the shade of one of the many large trees.
We soon met Julia and Riley. Two pretty blondes. A cheerful couple who thoroughly enjoyed the guests and Jo's delicious pizzas. The great thing about a weekend wedding is that the atmosphere is extra relaxed. There is all the time in the world to have a good time, but also to catch up with people you may not have seen in a long time. Julia and Riley's entire weekend was just a blast. Wonderfully relaxed and airy, no stress and just enjoy yourself to the fullest. We chose a wedding film with a montage that is a bit quieter and slower and therefore a bit longer. I know from experience that a glass of French wine is ideal for watching this video:
