What the heck is The Guest app?

The Guest app lets guests use their normal iPhone or Android cameras to take photos and videos, and these are shared automatically to you and the other guests as they're being taken. You can also turn off the automatic download and upload them by selection. We would love to see the weekend from your perspective so please download the app and share with us! :)

Question

Are kids invited?

Answer

Afin de permettre à tous les invités une soirée de détente, nous avons choisi pour notre jour de mariage être une occasion unique pour adultes. Nous avons mis en place une crèche de 18h à 2h du matin au Château de la Valouze. La société de garde d'enfants propose des jeux amusants et des lits de voyage pour dormir. Si vous êtes intéressé par la crèche, veuillez contacter Matt ou Sarah. _______________________________________________________________________ In order to allow all guests an evening of relaxation we have chosen for our wedding day to be an adult only occasion.

If you are interested in the creche please contact Matt or Sarah. We look forward to seeing your little ones at Brunch the next day.
