a motage of images taken at Le Petit Chateau in OtterburnLe Petit Chateau or LPC as the movers and shakers call it, is located in Otterburn, Northumberland in the North East of England. It’s a luxury French country manor hotel and it’s a fabulous example of shabby chic, put together in an effortless stylish way. I have a number of weddings to photograph at Le Petit Chateau over the next couple of years, so in an act selfless dedication to my art (and a lovely Christmas gift for Lynn and myself from our children and partners) we booked to stay over and sample their hospitality. So now I’ve set the scene, you are aware that my main motivation for being at Le Petit Chateau was purely for the benefit of my future brides and grooms.  I took some snaps as I wandered around the venue, looking at the way the light falls in the garden, checking out the backgrounds for bridal party shots and possible rustic locations for bride and groom photography.   The champagne and cocktail making kit in the bedroom, our restaurant arrival cocktail, the 5 course meal (with Amuse-Bouche, I had to google it) and the espresso martini to finish were all wonderful add-ons to what was in essence a wedding venue recce(best keep the receipts).  We also got sat next to a lovely couple who are getting married at Le Petit Chateau in 2019 and haven’t yet booked a photographer.  It’s work, work,work for me and Lynn, we should try and switch off more.

Le Petit Chateau, I will definitely be back, but next time I’ll bring a proper camera…
