It’s that time again when we whisk you off to another beautiful area of France and this week we are thinking about your destination wedding in Languedoc Roussillon.
Situated in the south of France, Languedoc Roussillon stretches from Provence to the Pyrenees mountains and the border of Spain. Its famous for it’s wine, particularly Vin de Pays d’Oc and a sparkling number that goes by the name Crémant de Limoux, so you certainly wont be stuck when choosing the wine for your destination wedding.
