And just imagine arriving in your luxury wedding car to the gates of a beautiful chateau, knowing you’re about to tie the knot with the man of your dreams!

A chateau wedding will create a once-in-a-lifetime memorable experience that can be shared with all your family friends. Chateaus that hold weddings will also have bespoke services available that you can take advantage of. Taking on the services of a wedding planner will guarantee a seamless and magnificent event that culminates in your fairytale ending. There is also the possibility that you may be able to spend the whole weekend at your chosen chateau. This means family and friends can take advantage of balmy weather, tennis, swimming pools and great dining. Which makes it almost a destination wedding in itself. If the venue only hires out for the day and evening, you can always ask for the price of hiring it out for the weekend. This is also a great way to incorporate a post wedding breakfast with everyone on the following day.
