How To Organise A Romantic Wedding In The South Of France

We already know that France is one of the most romantic places for a destination wedding. It’s different landscapes, architecture and climates mean that it’s perfect for any couple. From scenic views from the historial Normandy beaches, or across the Mediterranean and Atlantic ocean, France offers you everything. But although Paris is the famous ‘city of love’, and every year thousands of people get engaged there, it seems that many loved-up couples, including some of Hollywood’s most famous, find the south of France to be ‘the one’ for their intimate ceremony.

In the past few years, France’s beautiful architecture has seen the likes of Tom Hardy, “Brangelina” and Kiera Knightley say their ‘I do’s, which is a good enough reason as any to get out our suitcases and take our weddings to somewhere with a little more to offer, in art, culture and (of course) climate!

And, although it may take a few weeks or months to convince your other half, you know you can guarantee a wedding your guests will remember forever. Fortunately then, we’ve got together a few suggestions for venues and wedding planners so you don’t have to stress from across the Channel.

Your Wedding Venue

Château de Pennautier

Located in the heart of a vineyard in the south of France, this 17th century chateau offers couples the chance to see exactly France is so popular for a romantic ceremony. With over 24 bedrooms, 8 cottages, restaurants and wine bars for everyone, you can give your guests a real taste of French culture. And, of course, you can always rely on the weather for a picturesque setting in their private vineyard.
