Wedding venues in Dordogne, France

The Dordogne region is a beautiful part of France and it’s home to some of the most breathtaking wedding locations. There are plenty of great options for both ceremony and reception venues. This is mainly due to its natural beauty and rich history, as well as its proximity to other popular wedding destinations such as Bordeaux and Paris.

Getting married in Dordogne

If you are looking to get married in France, there are a few considerations that you should keep in mind. One of the first things to consider is the type of ceremony that you would like to have. There are three types of ceremonies: civil, religious and symbolic. Civil and religious ceremonies require an officiant which can be either a priest or a government official. Symbolic ceremonies do not require an officiant and these can take place anywhere, including outside on the beach or in your home.

Secondly, there is the matter of the venue for your wedding ceremony and reception. Some popular venues include castles, gardens, vineyards or even chateau! If you want a more intimate setting for your wedding day then consider getting married at home- it’s easy to decorate with flowers!
