An Exceptional Year

In July 2020 we made the tough decision to keep the Chateau closed for weddings and events for 2020. Initially, like many, we were expecting to be back up and running in August. However, it was just not meant to be. Our gorgeous brides felt the pressures and uncertainty of the unknown, and we felt it is our duty and responsibility to play our part in keeping everyone safe. 

This has caused some delays and ‘date juggling’ for 2021 and beyond (to quote Buzz Lightyear?), but we are currently in the final stages of working this all out. If you are in our system, know we will be in touch very soon with new dates, and thank you for being patient.

Our Journey

We’ve spent an incredible five years turning Chateau de la Motte Husson into our home and business. It’s been quite a journey and we’ve been delighted to share it all with you on our Channel 4 series 'Escape to The Chateau'. It certainly seems like a lifetime ago that we picked up the keys to our very own French chateau and we pinch ourselves everyday, even on the days when we argue and have to clear up the flies we still smile.

We feel very blessed that The Chateau is now teeming with life and activity, not only courtesy of our children Arthur and Dorothy, who simply love exploring their very own ‘castle’, but with guests who have been on the journey with us: those who have been inspired to ‘have a go’, and those who have simply enjoyed the fantasy from the safety of their armchairs!

We really have been overwhelmed by lovely e-mails and enquiries about visits and stays at The Chateau. We continue to offer elegant vintage weddings and special events and we promise to keep updating our offerings with fresh and innovative ideas. If you’d like to keep up to date with the latest news and events as we release them, we do have a newsletter or you can follow us on Facebook – we update on a regular basis!

We do love to entertain, but The Chateau is also our home, so other than formal events days, it is closed to the public.

We are eternally grateful for your continued support and enthusiasm and look forward to sharing our adventures with you.

With love and best wishes,

Dick, Angel, Arthur & Dorothy
