Our First Proposal of Marriage

Recently a young man contacted us, saying he wanted to create a special day in order to propose to his girlfriend. He said that she would be expecting a proposal, but wanted to find a beautiful and romantic setting to pop the question. Needless to say, we thought this was a lovely idea and offered an itinerary that included the wonderful but little visited Chateau de Candé, where the Duke and Duchess of Windsor were married, and the fabulous gardens of Villandry, full of private little nooks and crannies ideal for a romantic tryst.

At Candé we had fun with the clients, recreating this
picture of Edward and Mrs Simpson in the exact
spot the original was taken.
The clients adored Villandry, and after strolling through the potager, asked to be left on their own for a while. We were delighted to make ourselves scarce and half an hour later the happy couple emerged - engaged! The next stop was our favourite Vouvray winery, where they received a complimentary bottle of bubbly after their tasting session.

If you want to plan a special day in the Loire Valley, email us and tell us what you would like. We will be delighted to help you create a day to remember.
