Amour in Aquitaine

Bethan Posted on 12th February 2016 by Bethan

We have all been very excited about today’s blog post, and are happy to share with you a real Aquitaine love story! In the spirit of Valentine’s Day, Sarah and Gavin have kindly agreed to let us share their story. We are delighted to have helped them find their wedding venue (La Grange) and are looking forward to the wedding coming together almost as much as they are!

So, over to them…

“Gavin and I met summer 2013 at a water sports camp in Biscarrosse. This might sound like a bit of a cliché, but it really was one of those 'love at first sight' stories. We knew straight away that one day we would get married...and here we are planning our wedding!

As France was where we first met, we decided that it would be lovely to go back to where it all began. The Aquitaine region particularly holds a special place in our hearts, so we decided that this would be a perfect place to get married.

We looked into hiring a beach side villa but soon realised that our budget wouldn't stretch that far, however after some compromising we looked further afield and fell in love with La Grange. 

The villa is stunning, it has everything we asked for and, as a bonus, it has plenty of space to hold a wedding, as well as only being 4km from the beach. 

We cannot wait to get married in our favourite place, we're both super excited...only 6 months to go!

Thank you so much to all of the Alternative Aquitaine Team, the support we have received has been superb, in particular a big thank you to Justin for finding us our perfect venue!”
