thumbnail_1-vue-aerienne-2-kopie_3_296994-167926100365686.jpg

Our wedding is set to unfold at Château de la Borie, a castle nestled in the countryside (le Bocage Limousin) of Solignac, just a short distance from the picturesque city of Limoges, France. Our castle was constructed in 1650;  it features typical Louis XIII architecture and it received the designation of  "Monument Classé". Embraced by the natural beauty of "Jardins en Mouvements" à la Gilles Clément, the Château offers an enchanted backdrop for our celebration.

François' 60th birthday, a contribution for the restoration of the roof of the oratory and the creation of a light & sound installation would be greatly appreciated in order to preserve the heritage. The Château de la Borie and its oratory are classified as Monument Historique (Historic Monument).
