including your own French home
Some couples come to us with a very clear idea of where there would like to get married and the type of venue they are after, but some others just dream of getting married in France for a destination wedding with great food and wines, and do not really know where to look to start with. So here is a little guide to the main “wedding regions” of France…
Paris, also known as the “City of lights” and the “Cité de l’amour”, is just the most romantic city in the world! Its bridges over the river Seine offer some of the most magnificent views of the city.
Weather wise, Paris is quite similar to London, only a little bit warmer (from 2 or 3 degrees), so if it is the guaranteed sun option you are after, you might want to head more south…
In Paris, you can get married in the gardens of a beautiful museum, in a “hotel particulier” hidden in the small streets of the city, in a luxury hotel such as the Plazza Athénée or the George V, or in a circus museum! From the very classic to the really original, anything can be found in Paris! And if you would like to enjoy green spaces for your wedding day, there are also lots of beautiful chateaux and farmhouses in the outskirts of the city…
Provence is a place for relaxation, slow life, markets, and authentic French villages sight seeing.
All types of venues can be found in Provence, from private chateaux to luxury hotels or authentic provencal bastides.
The region offers many sceneries, from lavender fields to vineyards, olive groves, hill tops, sea side and mountains.
This means that in one weekend you can picnic in the fields, attend a gorgeous wedding in a stunning chateau and enjoy a Sunday brunch on the beach!
The weather in Provence is mostly sunny and warm, with weddings carried out outdoors from May through to September. A good thing to know: it can be very windy in Provence, so we always plan for some warmers in the evening, especially for early or late season weddings.
We will be delighted to help you source your perfect wedding venue in Provence.
With its 300 days of sun a year, the French riviera is THE sun-guaranteed option for your wedding in France!
The region offers many venue options, from sea side to countryside, from 5 star hotels to private properties.
To get to the riviera your guests would fly to Nice airport, which is an extremely convenient one as it is a very short drive to Nice city center.
If you are after some wow factor, beautiful views, luxury and lots of activities to do around, the riviera is definitely the right location for your wedding.
The Sud-Ouest is the main wine region of France. On the Atlantic coastline you will find long expanses of sandy beaches and great surfing spots, whereas the inland – home of foie gras, greasy duck breasts and cured ham – offers acres of vineyards and lots of beautiful chateaux.
In this region the weather is usually sunny but not too hot, evenings can be a bit chilly.
The quantity of venues available for weddings in this area is overwhelming. With lots of wine estates, there are many Chateaux to choose from, although if you are after a more relaxed wedding there are also beautiful manor houses and farmhouses around.
