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.

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.

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.
