With your love story at its heart your wedding at Château de la Ruche will be completely bespoke and utterly unique. From the moment you sweep up our tree-lined driveway we want you to feel relaxed. Our weddings are all about enjoyment, we love to make our guests feel spoilt but stuffy formality isn’t our style – so expect luxurious with a down-to-earth edge.

We specialise in elopements and small weddings of up to 30 people (because our château is petit). Imagine a laid-back country house weekend with a truly beautiful wedding in the midst of it all.

With the château grounds, meadows and woodland to choose from, there are plenty of places for an outdoor ceremony and reception. Get married on the château steps, on one of the sweeping lawns, or in one of our ancient avenues of trees.

Celebrate your marriage with a long, laid-back lunch in the sunshine, made with local and home-grown produce and washed down with beautiful Loire Valley wines. Dance the night away or feast until midnight. We’ll help you to celebrate in style, creating a reception that suits you so that you can spend quality time together in a way that you love
