When you decide to get married in Chambery in Fall, there is more risk to have a rainy wedding. And even if I often tell brides and groom that there are plenty of options to manag a rainy wedding (accessorize it, and think about various location for your couple photo session), it is, most of all about the attitude you’ll have on the D day too (be grumpy on a rainy day and you’ll have grumpy photos). But of course, I can understand that you can become grumpy when it is pouring rain ALL DAY, intensively.
F. and G.’s wedding was that kind of rainy wedding, where you need to cheer people up from time to time during the day, and also try to avoid to be hit by umbrella’s angles. But Savoie, in French Alps, is a very pretty area, even under the rain, and so were these 2 lovebirds !
But that wedding near Chambery, in Savoie was not just a rainy day, most of all, it was a chance for me to drive back to this part of France, pretty Savoie, and discover this venue, château des Comtes de Challes, and its very pretty view on the surrounding mountains.
It was also a chance to meet baby H. who started, in early morning, to drool on his grandma while his mum, the bride, was getting dressed. It was also the pretty shape of the groom’s jacket (I really like it !), and the shiny glittery dresses of the bride’s maids. It was that old cat who crashed the crowd of guest waiting in front of the city hall for the couple to arrive, and it was the pretty bouquet created by par Fleurs Thé au Faubourg – à Chambéry).
And in photos, here’s how was that special wedding day in Savoie.
