Sensational Le Manoir du Bout du Pont Wedding Agnac France

Soph & Rich’s beautiful wedding at Le Manoir du Bout du Pont in Agnac France.
We flew into Bergerac, a charming medieval town straddling the banks of the Dordogne River, known for its old town’s half-timbered buildings and for the Crepe Myrtle – evergreen trees with large conical panicles of crimped, 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. Although typically a peaceful place, the wedding party was fortunate to coincide with the weekly food festival, which took place on the night before their wedding.
Angela and Roddy, a Scottish couple, take great pride in owning Le Manoir du Bout du Pont. It wasn’t until they hosted their daughter’s wedding in the barn that they recognized they possessed the ideal wedding venue.
Le Manoir, which dates back to the 16th century, has been recognized as a National Monument since 1953. The Pigeonnier, featuring nine stone columns topped with mushroom-shaped caps, is widely regarded as one of the finest examples in France.

Soph & Rich

Rich and Sophie, like many other couples, had to reschedule their wedding several times. However, this allowed them ample opportunity to ensure that every detail was just perfect for their special day.
Southern France can be hot in the middle of July, but a refreshing breeze swept through the vast grounds of Le Manoir du Bout du Pont, keeping the guests comfortably cool during the wedding ceremony.
The wedding setup was stunning, and the guests revelled late into the night. The celebrations continued the following day with a pool party, which was a well-deserved reward for their enthusiastic partying.

Dordogne Weddings in France

As an English-speaking French wedding photographer, I have a deep appreciation for the neighboring departments of Dordogne and Lot. France is a popular destination for weddings, and the Dordogne and Lot regions offer stunning backdrops for weddings with their picturesque landscapes, charming villages, and rich cultural heritage.
In recent years, there has been a growing trend for couples to choose intimate weddings with a focus on personalization and individuality. The Dordogne and Lot regions offer many beautiful and unique venues for such celebrations, from historic chateaus to rustic barns, and quaint chapels to outdoor settings in the midst of vineyards or countryside.
One can easily identify Dordogne (also known as Perigord) and Lot by their signature golden stone buildings, as well as their 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

The entire region is renowned for its local products, including truffles, foie gras, wine, and other delectable treats such as duck confit. Food lovers will truly be in heaven 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 officially 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.
