I feel like more a fabulous female version of Lloyd Grossman when I do wedding venue in France, I love looking behind the exterior and finding out more about these beautiful venues, their history and what they can offer you for your wedding day.

Today’s wedding venue Chateau de la Cazine certainly doesn’t disappoint!  The Chateau’s tag line is “you don’t need a royal budget to be a princess for the day” and it certainly isn’t difficult to see how you could feel like a princess Chateau Cazine.

Nestled into the outskirts of the picturesque town of La Souterraine in South West France, the Chateau is stepped in romance originally being constructed in the late 1800’s as a lavish wedding gift from the owner to his wife. The surrounding area of La Creuse is known locally as “The Land of a Thousand Lakes”.
