We got married in June and we were lucky enough to have our wedding at the magical Chateau de la Couronne outside Angouleme in France with our family and what an amazing time we had. It is run by a fabulous couple Mark and Nicky who are so lovely and the wonderful Mary cooked for us. As why would we want outside caterers! I wanted proper French food, all cooked on site in their huge kitchen by Mary herself, using local produce that’s all in season. They do that so well. And boy it was delicious. We could really learn a lot by that!
The chateau itself has so much to offer and something for everyone. You really can get lost it there!! It has been restored by Nicky and mark with great care and detail and the finishing touches are what make it!
There is lounges and a bar, cinema room, games room, huge dinning room, study piano room, not to mention the grand entrance with sweeping staircase.
Practically all rooms have their own own ensuits and when I say ensuits, some have 2 baths!! It’s not just luxury it’s boutique. There is drinks fridges in each room and so many details and touches you really do feel spoilt let alone lord of the manor. The kids had a ball in and out of the swimming pool, playing football, and table tennis, and having all this space to explore, and of course if the children are happy the adult are happy ?
It really was the most amazing time and we will definitely be paying Mark and Nicky a visit back to their magical piece of French chateau life again soon.
