Gogglebox Wedding With The Impeccable Pear

As featured in The Mail Online.


The wedding took place in the beautiful Chateau de Lisse in the South West of France. This was two and a half years after Stephen popped the question in India. Stephen shared the news of his engagement at the time with a post on Instagram and the caption, “I asked the lovely @lustig75 to marry me in the beautiful surroundings of the Oberio hotel in Agra, and he said yes.”

When Daniel and Stephen visited Chateau de Lisse, they fell in love with it instantly. They felt so relaxed in the beautiful Gascony region of South West France. And they chose the venue to make the most of the laid-back atmosphere of the French countryside.

The couple came to The Impeccable Pear after being introduced by a friend. Daniel and Stephen were very laid-back and simply a pleasure to work with. As their wedding was a destination wedding, they were happy to be kept involved with the major decisions, but they trusted us to take care of all the details, and arrived stress-free, knowing that we had taken care of everything.

The Impeccable Pear worked closely with Stephen and Daniel, tailoring their wedding around their vision in order to create their perfect day. We helped with the big picture, whilst also taking care of the smaller details. Take a look at these beautiful customised confetti bags that Stephen posted on his Instagram.


The wedding ceremony was truly touching. It was such a joy to see a couple so in love! Daniel and Stephen chose to have their wedding ceremony in the Chateau de Lisse 12th century chapel. This created such an impressive atmosphere, and really did not take much decorating as the chapel itself is so beautiful.


Daniel, Stephen and their guests arrived at Chateau de Lisse the day before their wedding for an icebreaker event and BBQ. They wanted to make the most of their exclusive hire of Chateau de Lisse and also wanted to get away for the weekend to relax. On the day of the wedding, the couple were in high spirits. After their wedding ceremony in our beautiful chapel, they enjoyed a wedding breakfast run by our very own Impeccable Chef. There were lots of compliments about the food – even from a Michelin star chef!

We kept the champagne and drinks flowing throughout the afternoon and into the evening as their guests danced the night away. It was important to Daniel and Stephen that everybody felt looked after and that they received impeccable service!


We were so grateful to receive this wonderful testimonial from Daniel and Stephen:

“People say that your wedding day is the best day of your life. And now thanks to Jo and her team at Chateau de Lisse we can confirm that this is indeed true! Our wedding was ten months in the making and at first we were very concerned about how we were to plan our perfect day in France from our home in the UK. We needn’t have worried as Jo is nothing short of superwoman personified!

Jo did everything for us, going above and beyond all our expectations. In the planning, Jo gave us plenty of choices and options on everything from DJs and flowers to menu and drinks. It was all taken care of for us! We gave Jo our budget and she not only did what we wanted but went out of her way to get the best deal, saving us money on things that were less important to us so we could spend more on the things that were.

Having our wedding at Chateau de Lisse, we truly felt as if the place was ours for the three days that we were there. And whenever we had to make a decision about something, Jo would magically appear to help us make the right choice. We cannot recommend Jo and the team at The Impeccable Pear enough. EVERYTHING was just perfect!”


The Gogglebox Wedding was such a joy for us to plan and execute. We enjoyed working with Daniel and Stephen and creating their dream wedding. The couple were simply a joy to work with – so laid-back and happy. We wish Daniel and Stephen every happiness in their marriage together!
