5 reasons to get married in the Loire Valley

When considering which area to get married in France, you will find it hard to beat the stunning Loire Valley for your wedding day. Here’s our top five reasons why…


1. It’s prestigious and beautiful
When people think “Chateaux and France” then they will most undoubtedly think of the Loire Valley. Indeed it is par excellence the land of kings and splendour, the area of France where you will find the most classic, fairytale wedding venues.

On top of being classified as a World Heritage Site by the UNESCO for its river and châteaux, the region is also filled of lovely villages and towns where your guests could really get to experience the classic French way of life.

2. The wine and the gastronomy
The Loire Valley is famous for its wines and rich gastronomy. If you are lucky enough to have your wedding in the area, don’t miss the opportunity to have a wine tour organised for you and your guests.

3. The good links to the airports
Because of the importance of tourism in the region, the Loire Valley is very well connected to the rest of the world, with major airports in Nantes, Tours and Angers.


4. The weather
If you’re looking for a sunny region of France, consider the Loire Valley and its mild climate.
In terms of hours of sunshine, it actually rivals with the most Southern parts of France such as Biarritz, Bordeaux and Carcassonne (source).


5. The prices
The icing on the (wedding) cake… The Loire Valley châteaux are particularly affordable, often more competitive in terms of prices than venues in the South of France. Plus the suppliers (caterers, wedding planners, florists etc…) are generally less expensive whilst still being equally competent!
