Le Petit Chateau: Amanda and Richard’s Whirlwind Romance


Amanda and Richard were childhood sweethearts, when they met at the age of 16. The couple fell in love and eight years later their relationship bloomed when Richard proposed.

Picturing their future together, Amanda and Richard began planning their wedding and always dreamt of saying ‘I do’, surrounded by their family and friends.

The Venue:

‘Tastefully traditional or daringly different’
This hidden gem, Le Petit Chateau, promised the quirky and fun loving atmosphere that Amanda and Richard loved.

The couple’s fantastical wedding consisted of a giant marble fireplace, stunning water features and majestic grounds, there is no surprise they fell in love!

“Le Petit Chateau is incredibly beautiful both inside and out. The venue and staff are so relaxed and let us be our fun, outgoing selves.
The fire place and outside gardens are mind blowing to say the least,” said Amanda.

The Dress:

Amanda said: “My sister and bridesmaid came dress shopping with me, I tried on four dresses but ended up choosing one from a different boutique and knew instantly it was the one for me!”

Beauty, class and elegance – Amanda wore a stunning mermaid-style dress with an illusion plunging neckline and satin finish.

This understated gown, from Butterflies Bridal, was made complete with the delicate embellishments on the waistband, while the scarlet coloured bridesmaids’ dresses complemented Amanda’s look beautifully.

The Bride’s Advice:

“Do it your way and go to as many wedding fair’s as you can! If not for inspiration, do it for the free cake! I will 100 per cent miss attending these.”
