This area of France can provide the perfect backdrop for your dream (see the Destination page for some ideas). I believe that a destination wedding can be affordable for all, and France is perfect for encouraging friends and family to easily take part. Accommodation and location can suit every budget, from castle to guest house.
My favourite weddings here are steeped in the flavour of our rural idyll - a ceremony in a local chapel with ancient frescoes, a feast in an enormous banqueting barn, and accommodation in a 'shabby chic' stone villa complete with pigeonnier tower...Family & friends, fantastic food, and beautiful surroundings - everything that makes a perfect wedding, and all so simple and affordable.
It is very easy to have a civil, or otherwise, marriage in your home country and celebrants and ministers are available for a ceremony here in France. This allows you to have all the romance of a French wedding without getting caught up in French bureaucracy. Every wedding is unique and prices are given accordingly.

* If you are not a French resident, it is possible, but difficult, to get legally married in France. People usually do the legal stuff in their own country, then come here for the celebration and party.
