As it’s Friday we’re sure many of you are looking forward to the weekend where you might kick back with a glass of fizz, if so exploring the Champagne region of France in our guide to your destination wedding in Champagne might be quite fitting.
The Champagne region of northeast of France is located about 100 miles east of Paris and is best known for the production of the sparkling white wine that is named after the region. Incidentally there are actual laws that say Champagne can only be called Champagne if it has come from this region. So if Champagne is your fizz of choice this region of France may well be a pretty good choice for your destination wedding.
The scenery of the Champagne region is obviously heavy with vines which carpet the plain and roll up the hillsides to woodland at the top, however this region is not all about the bubbles. Champagne is also a beautiful region filled with great lakes and natural parks, with wide open spaces that are perfect for walking, horseback riding, mountain-biking or enjoying water sports on the lakes, this region is great for those who love outdoor activities.
Now that we have you hooked on all this talk of fizz and beautiful scenery lets kick this guide off with a visit to a wonderful Chateau…
Janeane and Eric’s timeless wedding in Champagne is full of stylish design elements, which is unsurprising as our bride is a graphic designer. From the individual gold and bronze bridesmaid dresses to the yellow bow tie of Eric this Chateau wedding just oozes style.
Chateau de Mairy has an informal and relaxed atmosphere of a country house and is the perfect location for a romantic, champagne filled wedding. Set in 10 hectares of gardens and woodland this historic monument is a great setting for an outdoor ceremony just like Janeane and Eric created. We’re sure you will agree that their outdoor ceremony in front of this beautiful Chateau looks relaxed and intimate and fits perfectly with their stylish theme.
If like Janeane and Eric you are wanting to create a unique and stylish wedding wouldn’t it be lovely to have everything you’ve created preserved in film? There’s nothing better than sitting down together and popping on the film of your big day and reliving one of the most special days of your lives. Choosing the right videographer for your wedding can be difficult which is why we have compiled a list of wedding videographers in Champagne to make things that little bit easier for you.
For our next stop we’re heading one hour away from Paris to Reims for a wedding in the vines of Champagne with a twist…
Our bride and groom Charlotte and Reda created a fun and festive wedding, with personal touches reflecting them both and their cultures all whilst living on the island of Malta. They chose to have their wedding amongst the vines in Reims as that was where most of their family members lived and with it being only one hour away from Paris, it was a convenient location for their guests who traveled from afar.
We just love the way Charlotte and Reda combined the Algerian and French customs to create what definitely looks to be a fun and festive wedding, we particularly like how Charlotte changed into a traditional Algerian Karakou which their guests loved as it perfectly combined both cultures.
Creating a destination wedding like our beautiful couple have done on their own is very impressive as every detail seems to have been planned perfectly. We here at French Wedding Style understand that planning your own destination wedding can be a little scary so why not enlist the help of a wedding planner for your wedding in the Champagne region?
