CHATEAU

Provence offers an incredibly wide choice of wedding venues and Provence chateau must be at the top of that list. Dreamy and romantic, extensive or exclusive and petit they offer that elegant, decadent an refined setting for your wedding. The choice is vast!

Chateau de Rochegude

A fine example of a Provence Chateau – Chateau de Rochegude stands proud in the calm surroundings of the vineyards. Besides the spectacular views, it offers spacious grand rooms with private terraces, a swimming pool and private parkland with deer. As a member of the Relais & Châteaux association, it maintains high standards of accommodation and fine dining in a traditional atmosphere.

Curate

The French curé is the chief priest of a parish. It’s worth mentioning that a priest can only marry you in the eyes of the Church. To get married legally in France, you have to visit a city hall for un mariage à la mairie before your church ceremony.

Champagne

Ahh, Champagne – the drink of elegance and success. The incredible marketing achievement of cunning manufacturers of the 17th, 18th and 19th century who worked hard to associate champagne with nobility and royalty. The unmistakable taste of bubbles which goes straight to your head. A fun fact – the Victorian champagne coupe – according to legend, was designed using a mould of Marie Antoinette’s left breast as a birthday present to her husband, Louis XVI.

If you love your champagne you must visit Épernay and it’s most famous street  Avenue de Champagne which features the leading Champagne manufacturers.
