Weddings at the Chateau

Yesterday the Candies were invited to attend a rather lovely wedding fayre being held at the equally lovely Chateau des Vigiers, just south of Sainte Foy de la Grande in the Gironde.

We actually visited the venue on Friday and did our get in; it was going to be an early start in the morning so it felt better to have that done and out the way.

The Candies met in a car park at 8:15 on a rather cold and icy Saturday morning for the drive down.  It was a beautiful morning and just perfect for a winter weekend.

Things were in full swing when we arrived so we took our place in our corner and waited for folks to arrive.  Alex Crowe was also there, so we took turns with him… he playing fabulous piano solos and then The Candies singing a few numbers.  And so it went from 10:00 in the morning  until 19:00.  We had a number of folks ask about booking, and certainly 2 or 3 that wanted to book… so whilst it was a long day, it was fruitful.  And we also met and spent time chatting with many other wedding professionals so all in all it was a very good day!
