Your destination wedding checklist
While looking for the perfect wedding destination abroad, France is often high up on the list and the beautiful region of Normandy is exceptional in the amount it has to offer.
First and foremost, Normandy it is incredibly convenient for a destination wedding. For guests coming from the UK, ferries and the Channel Tunnel offer excellent value, particularly for families and groups, and driving in France is safe and easy with a great road network. There are, of course, also plenty of airports in the area. For Château de Vaudézert our nearest airports are Caen (90km-1h20) and Rennes (120km-1h40). For long-haul flights from the USA, Canada and Middle East then Paris Charles de Gaulle is a huge international hub, located a three hour drive from the Château and it also possible to arrive via train and taxi.
The climate in Normandy is excellent too. In the summer it tends to typically be a couple of degrees warmer than the south of the UK, but you are likely to avoid the extreme heat of the south. As the Château de Vaudézert is situated inland and in the south of Normandy, the levels of rainfall are relatively low too, whilst maintaining the luscious green countryside.
In addition, Normandy is home to an excellent network of English-speaking wedding planners, caterers, florists, photographers and other suppliers who will ensure your special day runs smoothly. This makes it all very easy to plan a wedding abroad with the opportunity for venue visits, gourmet menu tastings, video calls and easy communication throughout your wedding planning process.
No wedding is complete without good food and, by choosing France, and Normandy in particular, for your destination wedding, you will have your pick of culinary delights to enjoy on your special day (did someone say “Camembert”?) Impress your guests with fantastic local cuisine at prices which won’t break the bank. If you’re looking for a high-end three course wedding breakfast, family-style informal dining, a buffet, food truck, hog roast or something a little more unusual, you will be spoilt for choice in this beautiful corner of France.
And beautiful is certainly the word for it…rolling hills, green pastures, ancient woodland. Normandy is an ideal spot for a natural wedding setting and a Château like Vaudézert with plenty of grounds to explore is therefore the perfect location, combining luxury and France’s rural beauty.
During your stay in Normandy, there will plenty to explore with historic towns and castles aplenty, so make sure you set aside some time to get out and see the local area, take a moment to relax in a picturesque spa town like Bagnoles de l’Orne, head to the coast to enjoy miles of unspoilt sandy beaches or visit the famous Mont St. Michel.
