I think it was every thing they wanted from the boars head to the simple flowers. We can only say a huge thank you for making the day so special, and if the summer had been less frantic I am sure we would have been able to liaise a little more which would have helped!
Just a huge thank you. The day would have not been half as special without your hard work and the image of you wrestling with the dog Falco will live on in my memory. There was only going to be one winner!“
“We would recommend Julie to anyone getting married in South West France. Not only is she brilliantly organised she is an excellent people person.
She was fantastic at organizing everything we needed, and being fluent in French and English meant that things that would have been so difficult for us (like organizing taxis, caters and florists etc.) were made to seem easy.
On the day itself, Julie was absolutely amazing and we couldn’t have done it without her. She worked tirelessly all day to make sure that we didn’t have to think about a thing. Thank you Julie for helping to make our day so special.”

The Princess Château by Your Wedding Planner
Wedding Château Package
This magnificent 13th-century castle and former residence of the bishops of Cahors certainly offers the “wow” factor for your wedding celebration.
Perched on a rocky outcrop, it overlooks the picturesque Lot valley and offers a breathtaking view wherever you look: whether from the terrace, the garden, the top of the tower or from the windows of the vast bedrooms.
It offers a restaurant reception area which can seat 120 guests as well as a variety of mature areas around the château which can be used for afternoon aperitifs including a walled court yard for the ultimate celebration.
With the added bonus of onsite accommodation for up to 60, the guest rooms are lavishly decorated with gold interiors and antique wooden furniture.
The château is located 1hr form Brive airport and 1 1/2 hrs from Toulouse, which offer regular flights from the UK and around the world.
Local specialities and tasty cuisine are served at the 1-star Michelin restaurant; a spacious Roma-style wine cellar is situated under the castle’s terrace.
The château features a chapel, an outdoor swimming pool set in the heart of the park planted with bicentenary cedars and two tennis courts.
The area is surrounded by vineyards and the famous Rocamadour, and some of the well-known most beautiful villages in France.
Boat trips can be taken along the river to see the magnificent views around the Lot.
Throughout the years, it has developed a special, almost sublime, spirit all its own. Let the fairy-tale begin in the most beautiful feudal castle…
Inside the castle, you take a stroll down the wide halls and discover a chapel hidden in the heart of one tower, where your ceremony can take place. Let yourself relax and contemplate the beauty of the place!
Then you will stroll down the immense staircases to the underground cellar where wine is aged in peace and quietness. There, tasting becomes a magic moment!
