FARIDA + RICH
ARE GETTING MARRIED, YAY!
The closest airports are Bordeaux and Toulouse.
The transfer time from Bordeaux is a little shorter so that would be the easier option.
The Eurostar runs from London St Pancras to Bordeaux, via Paris. The TGV will connect Bordeaux to the rest of France, if you are already on the continent.
We are able to arrange group bus transfers for people who don't want to hire cars.
If you can let us know in your RSVP if you are interested in an airport transfer, we will contact you to confirm details directly.
There is a wide range of accommodation available in the vicinity of the Chateau, including small hotels and B&Bs.
The links below are recommended by the Chateau:
If none of those are what you're looking for, then there are alternatives on AirBnB, Agoda and Booking.com.
If you book somewhere not on the suggested list, please check that it is within a 10km radius of the Chateau and doesn't have any particular access issues. We suggest booking in and around Nerac, a nearby town. We want to ensure that you are still able to get on the night carriage back at the end of the evening.
THINGS TO CONSIDER
We are expecting the weather to be warm during the day, with it getting cooler as the sun sets. We will be mostly be celebrating outside, so dress accordingly - don't forget your sun protection! Be sensible and check the weather closer to the time too.
Ladies, if you plan to wear stilettos, please bring heel protectors to stop yourselves from sinking in the grass. And importantly, to wear inside the house - the floors are super old so and we don't want to ruin them.
We want you all to relax and enjoy yourselves, so we are not having children attend. This way there is no excuse to not be throwing some shapes on the dancefloor. Any concerns about this, please contact us directly.
We kindly ask you don't take photos during the ceremony, and we'd love you to be fully
with us on the day so please save your social media posts for another time. We have an awesome photographer and videographer to capture every single moment of the day, who will want to see all your faces and not your phones.
Bring your best smiles, your loudest laughs, your funniest chat and
your most ridiculous dance moves.
YOU ARE THE GIFT
This day is really about us having fun with our close friends and family. Being able to create wonderful memories with you all in such a beautiful part of the the world is a privilege. We are super grateful to have you in our lives.
However, if feel like you'd like to contribute a little something extra, we kindly ask that you help us make our honeymoon extra special.
