Weddings in France

France is popular not just for its gastronomy and lifestyle, but also for weddings abroad. Imagine getting married in France in a romantic château set amongst the vineyards with your friends and family sharing your wedding day?

Or perhaps a ceremony in the Alps with a spectacular mountain backdrop for those all important wedding photos? Or you could copy many celebrities and get married on the Cote D'Azur and celebrate at a private villa or even on a yacht? read more

If none of those appeal, then how about getting married in Paris? One of the most romantic cities in the world – what better place to become Mr and Mrs? You could exchange vows in one of the pretty château on the outskirts and then spend your honeymoon wandering around the sights. Or perhaps you'd like a sophisticated city wedding in a stylish hotel or palace before soaking up the atmosphere?

France is double the size of the UK so there are plenty of hidden gems in the countryside if you'd like a wedding unlike any of your friends. You could consider the Gironde wine area inland from Bordeaux for a relaxed ceremony, or slightly further south, towards the Mediterranean, the area of Languedoc-Roussillon has a plethora of historic châteaux all of which organise stunning weddings year-round.

Getting married in France further east is also simple, and you can find many gorgeous chalets perched on mountainsides in the Alps which arrange weddings, or towards the north you could even get married in the Champagne region – why not splurge on your wedding day!

As you can see, there are so many different regions available for getting married in France that it can be quite difficult to narrow down the right place for you! However, there are plenty of good wedding planners who can help you decide which ceremony is perfect for you - just take a look below for a selection to contact.

We could go on to talk about the five beautiful salons, the private grounds, the private cinema, heated swimming pool or billiard room. But maybe it’s better that real wedding clients talk instead:
"Nicky is a fantastic wedding planner and there was no point at all where I felt worried or anxious"
"The mix of the traditional chateau setting and ultra modern rooms and facilities make this place a real gem. You will struggle to find this perfect combination elsewhere in France. We have looked!
