Soph & Rich | Le Manoir du Bout du Pont Agnac

Sensational Le Manoir du Bout du Pont Wedding Agnac France

Soph and Rich celebrated their beautiful wedding at Le Manoir du Bout du Pont in Agnac, France.
We landed in Bergerac, a quaint medieval town by the Dordogne River. It’s famous for its old half-timbered buildings and the Crepe Myrtle trees with unique dark cerise flowers.
Most of the guests were staying around Eymet, a beautiful bastide commune on the edge of the Dropt River and the border of the Dordogne region. They recently hosted The Félibrée, a three-day Occitan festival, and still adorned the town with flowers and ribbons.

Le Manoir du Bout du Pont

The enchanting village of La Sauvetat-du-Dropt served as the idyllic wedding venue. The wedding party lucked out with a peaceful setting and a food festival the night before their big day.
Angela and Roddy, a Scottish couple, take great pride in owning Le Manoir du Bout du Pont. When they hosted their daughter’s wedding in the barn, they realized they possessed the ideal venue.
The 16th-century Le Manoir has been a National Monument since 1953. The Pigeonnier, with nine stone columns topped with mushroom-shaped caps, is one of the finest examples in France.

Soph & Rich

Like many other couples, Rich and Sophie had to reschedule their wedding several times. Yet, this allowed them ample opportunity to ensure every detail was perfect for their special day.
July in Southern France can get hot, but a cool breeze at Le Manoir du Bout du Pont kept wedding guests refreshed.
The wedding setup was stunning, and the guests reveled late into the night. The next day, they celebrated with a pool party as a fun reward for their lively festivities.

Dordogne Weddings in France

As an English-speaking French wedding photographer, I love photographing in Dordogne and Lot. France is a popular destination for weddings, and the Dordogne and Lot regions offer stunning backdrops. Weddings combine with the picturesque landscapes, charming villages, and rich cultural heritage.
A growing trend has recently been for couples to choose intimate weddings, focusing on individuality. The Dordogne and Lot regions offer many beautiful and unique venues for such celebrations. These include historic chateaus, rustic barns, and vineyards.
Dordogne has stunning villages, often adorned with medieval castles. While Dordogne is quite popular with tourists, Lot is a hidden gem and one of France’s best-kept secrets.

Local Products in Dordogne

The region has local products, including truffles, foie gras, wine, and other delectable treats like duck confit. You’ll love the food here!
Some notable places to visit in Dordogne include the lively town of Sarlat, the museums of Périgueux, Bergerac with its half-timbered houses, the world-famous Caves of Lascaux, and two of France’s Plus Beaux Villages: La Roque-Gageac, situated on the banks of the Dordogne river, and the hilltop village of Beynac-et-Cazenac.
Meanwhile, Lot offers attractions such as the natural park of Causses du Quercy, the capital city of Cahors known for its delicious black wine, the clifftop village of St-Cirq-Lapopie listed as one of France’s Plus Beaux Villages, and Rocamadour, with its monastic buildings and renowned goat cheese.
With so much to see and experience in these neighboring departments, it’s no wonder they’re such popular destinations for visitors to France.
