In France, there are over 6,000 exquisite châteaux. Each has its own story to tell, its own style and chapter of history. It would be easy to get lost with so many beautiful locations available to your choice. So, let’s take a look at our hand-picked shortlist of the most fabulous French chateaux for an unforgettable wedding.

Weddings at Château de Chantilly near Paris

Chateau de Chantilly is a magnificent chateau for luxurious weddings, located 40 minutes from Paris. This is one of the most famous French castles, and it is very prestigious to celebrate a wedding here. Chateau de Chantilly consists of a huge park, castle and several separate buildings for events. During the day, the castle is a museum, but it is also ideal for renting for a wedding event. Invite 80 to 100 guests and fill the walls with love and laughter as your wedding events begin.

In this chateau’s gorgeous grounds, there are several magnificent venues for the wedding ceremony. For example, you can exchange wedding vows on the Le d’Amour, the island of love. It is a small island located on the west side of the park with a lovely feeling of privacy. Alternatively, host your ceremony at the Maison de Sylvie, a romantic pavilion with elegant French décor. Nearby is a secluded garden ideal for cocktails after your ceremony.
