The ideal location for couples who want to enjoy a romantic destination wedding with their friends and family, it doesn’t get much better than the Provence region of the South of France. Renowned for its natural beauty, Provence also has a huge variety of wedding venues available for rental with golden sunshine for your big day pretty much guaranteed.
Whether you’ve always dreamed of getting married in a fairy-tale castle or are hoping to get married on the beach, Provence has venue options to suit all tastes and budgets. From vineyards to lavender fields, olive groves to the sun-drenched beaches along the coast, Provence promises to be an exceptional setting for your wedding.
To get legally married in France you need to be a French resident, but many couples choose to have a simple civil marriage at home and then come to Provence to celebrate with friends and family. By hiring a venue with enough space for a second ceremony, you and your partner can host a wedding blessing right here in the heart of Provence.
As you start to think about choosing the location for your Provence wedding, we recommend booking a venue with enough space for both the ceremony and then the cocktail reception or wedding dinner to make sure your guests can move around easily. It’s also a good plan to hire a venue with additional indoor space so you can move inside after 22h to comply with local noise regulations.
Thanks to the fantastic selection of wedding venues available for rental in and around Provence, you might find it hard to pick your favourite.But whether you’re looking for an elegant country house surrounded by vineyards or a chilled-out beach club overlooking the Mediterranean, we recommend keeping your dates as flexible as possible to ensure maximum availability at your chosen venue.
With many couples choosing to extend their celebrations over a few days, renting a wedding venue with accommodation is a great way to enjoy your stay. As Provence is easily accessible by car and train with 3 major airports for those coming from farther afield, you could also throw a pre-wedding party and/or a post-wedding brunch to really make the most out of your destination wedding.
When planning your Provence wedding, we recommend working with local florists to add some special touches to your big day. Depending on the time of year, they will be able to provide you with sprigs of lavender, olive branches or mimosa to add to your bouquet, buttonholes and table decorations to give your guests a little taste of life in the South of France.
