Villa Weddings, House Parties & Business Events
Domaine Les Grands Champs is a private residence set in 1 hectares of fenced gardens
We focus on creating those special memories that you can cherish for years to come.
The villa is ideal for family get-togethers, birthdays, anniversaries or company retreats, and Domaine Les Grands Champs also offers you a perfect venue for an outdoor country wedding.
In terms of style, the ‘Garden’ wedding offers a lot of flexibility. Beautiful scenery with natural backdrops of wild and cultivated plants and flowers are ideal for photography. The gardens can be decorated to suit you. With the shaded trees, garden pergola, woodland altar or poolside arch, you will find the ideal spot for your celebrations.
Our ideal catering size for weddings and events is between 25 – 50 people but we can cater for more in the expansive gardens surrounding the villa. The grand salon can seat up to 50 inside and for those who prefer to dine outside there are marquees available.
There are some laws about marrying in France. To hold an ‘official’ marriage ceremony here you will need to have been a resident in the country for at least 40 days before the wedding date. For many couples this isn’t possible, but it is possible to have a blessing ceremony on the premises by an English-speaking celebrant.
For those couples who do comply with the rules for getting legally married in France, they must marry by way of a short, civil ceremony which takes place at the local town hall (Mairie) in French. The couple can then follow this with a religious ceremony, a secular ceremony, or whatever celebration they choose.
The vast majority of couples choose to have their ‘legal’ ceremony in their own country, which then leaves them free to have the wedding ceremony of their dreams here in France.
We are pleased to have Lisa Lister as our associated celebrant. Lisa is an experienced, fully qualified, and independent celebrant, who works with couples to design completely bespoke wedding ceremonies to deliver their dream weddings.
Your ceremony can contain some religious content or none, and will be created uniquely around your wishes, beliefs and values. No two ceremonies are ever the same, the only thing they do have in common is how incredibly tailored they are to each couple!
