Destination Weddings: Marry in France

France: it’s a wonderland of culture, lavish landscapes and classic architecture that can create an unimaginably romantic backdrop for a wedding. And, as French is the language of love, why not put Edith Piaf’s La Vie En Rose at the top of your playlist and start planning your French wedding. Take a look at our top five places to marry in France.

Paris

Destination Weddings: Marry in France Gay Wedding GuideThe city of love is one of the most, if not the most, classic choice for a wedding not just in France, but the world over. Don’t let the clichés deter you, however. They exist for a reason – because Paris is an architectural wonderland with a rich history, and its thriving bustle of life is the perfect backdrop for a beautiful union.

Montpellier

Destination Weddings: Marry in France Gay Wedding GuideDescribed as “France’s second gay city”, Montpellier isn’t as busy or crowded as Paris. Instead, it provides you with more secluded locations such as large houses, and tiny churches with spacious and ramshackle cellars in which to hold receptions. It may not be as romantic as Paris, but there’s a wealth of choice in deciding a theme for your wedding if you host it here.

The French Alps

Destination Weddings: Marry in France Gay Wedding GuideIf you want to get married in the winter, this is the perfect place to do so. Whether you decide to do it in a large and luxurious hotel or a secluded chalet, the scenery of the Alps is stunning and a great, if unconventional, backdrop to any wedding.

Lyon

Destination Weddings: Marry in France Gay Wedding GuideWhile Lyon is a bustling city in its own right, the real attraction is the rivers. Located at the confluence of the Rhone and Saone, Lyon has a great many beautiful riverside venues to choose from.

Dordogne

Destination Weddings: Marry in France Gay Wedding GuideRural France has a unique character, different from the cities, and the Dordogne region encapsulates this. Full of beautiful and sprawling fields, and little fortified villages that often feel untouched by time, Dordogne is the perfect place to go to get away from all the noise of the cities for a quiet wedding.
