I love shooting beautiful weddings. I especially love shooting beautiful weddings in stunning locations. I can’t think of anywhere more lovely and romantic for a wedding than France. France is pretty broad for a wedding location so let’s narrow it down. Here are my 5 favorite wedding spots in France.
Ok, this one is a no-brainer. Paris is simultaneously the City of Light and the City of Love. From luxury hotels like the Ritz Paris and Shangri-La Hotel, to regal chateaus like Chateau d’Esclimont, there is something for every couple’s tastes in Paris. Modern elegance or antique charm both abound in the variety of wedding venues found in Paris.

While Paris gets most of the attention, it’s definitely not the only place in France to have an unforgettable destination wedding. Normandy also tops the list. When you imagine the beauty of the French countryside, the images that come to mind are probably those that look like Normandy. Some notable venues in Normandy include Bonnemare Castle, Chateau de Carsix, and Chateau de Courtomer.

South of France
Known for its idyllic scenery and gastronomical offerings, the South of France is the perfect storm for your destination wedding. Invite guests to the wedding of your dreams at Villa & Gardens Ephrussi de Rothschild, Domaine des Lys, or Le Beauvallon.

If you are looking for mountain vistas or ethereal lavender fields, you will be happy planning your big day in Provence. Provence is one of the most charming cities in all of France. Some of the best wedding venues in Provence include La Bastide de Gordes, Chateau Grimaldi, or Chateau d’Estoublon.

This city in southwestern France may be one you haven’t heard of but this stunningly beautiful city along the Dordogne River is definitely worth checking out. Favorite wedding venues in Dordogne include Chateau La Durantie, Domaine de Grolhier, or Chateau La Gauterie.
