Our wedding exceeded all our expectations
From the moment we drove down the long leafy driveway towards Chateau de Lerse in February 2020
we knew it was the venue we'd been searching for and when we finally got married in June 2022 our wedding exceeded all our expectations.
The venue is a fairytale castle tastefully renovated to compliment the castle's history but with modern comforts and chic decor.
Since our first visit the car park has been transformed into a stunning swimming pool, a further 4 bedrooms added to the main chateau and the old barn renovated into an events space and bar area.
What made Chateau de Lerse stand out compared to other venues wasn't just its beauty but the fact we were lucky enough to hire the entire property for 5 days and encouraged to treat it like our home.
Joss, Chris and the rest of the team went above and beyond to make us feel like our event was the event of the year, everything had been thoroughly thought through, with the utmost importance given to how we wanted the 5 days to run.
Someone was always on hand to serve drinks, answer questions or cooking in the kitchen where delicious smells emanated across the 5 days and had you salivating...
Which brings me to the food. Joss' menu was so unique, marrying tastes you would not necessarily expect deep in the heart of South West France.
Our wedding guests continuously commented on how exciting and moorish the food was.
So often at weddings there is a canape or a course that lets the menu down but everything from the hot workshops, the main course, the dessert platter and the stunning night cheese buffet that had been decorated like a forest was exquisite and not a plate was left unclean.
Even the pool party bbq the day after the wedding we had expected simple burgers but Joss had organised an array of intriguing salads and sides that made everyone keep going back for more.
We're already planning to go back for our 10 year anniversary!
