Are you looking for the perfect Provence wedding venue? In this blog post, I’ll share some of my favourite wedding venues in France. From stunning chateaus to breathtaking vineyards, there is something for every couple’s dream Provence wedding.

Luxury Provence Wedding venue Chateau de Tourreau.

Villa Baulieu

I adore this venue! It’s a private residence with an exceptional vineyard and nestled in the heart of the only volcano in Provence. It’s ideally located between Aix-en-Provence and the Luberon and was owned by the Counts of Provence since the 16th century. If you’re looking to keep your guests busy then the estate offers a range of activities from wine tastings to cooking classes. You can see a wedding I shot at this fabulous venue here – Nina & Carl. This wedding was also recently featured on Wedding Chicks.

La Bastide de Marie

If it’s intimate and charming that you’re looking for then this exceptional Provence wedding venue is the one for you!  A striking farmhouse estate close to the most beautiful village in France, Gordes and located in the heart of Luberon National Park. La Bastide de Marie boasts fragrant gardens, vineyards, and lavender fields. It’s a picturesque venue with stunning locations for your ceremony and photo backdrops. La Bastide is best suited for more intimate events of up to 80 guests. You can find more photos of the bastide on my dedicated blog post about the property – La Bastide de Marie.

Château de Fonscolombe 

This Provence wedding venue is a unique and magical setting with a 12-hectare park and private 18th century chapel. An incredible 50 room Relais & Châteaux hotel just near Aix-en-Provence with the real WOW factor. Château de Fonscolombe recently went under an 18 month renovation and the results are second to none!

La Bastide de Gordes 

Of course, I’m a little biased as I’m lucky enough to live in the beautiful Luberon area! La Bastide de Gordes is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful Provence wedding venues. Owned by the truly world-class Airelles group, it sits high in the heart of the village of Gordes. Set into the cliffs with spectacular views of Luberon valley. There are plump velvet armchairs, thick wooden beams and even suits of armour at every turn. With a variety of spaces both indoors and out, a fantastic restaurant and scenery to die for, it’s the perfect venue to say I do. 

Chateau de Berne

Chateau de Berne is a fairy-tale wedding venue surrounded by vineyards and olive groves. This 18th-century castle offers a range of options for your celebration and includes a beautiful outdoor terrace and a romantic chapel. In the middle of a renowned wine estate, Chateau de Berne is the ideal place for a chic, refined and authentic Destination French wedding.

Chateau Saint-Martin & Spa

You will find this venue perched on a hilltop in Vence with panoramic views of the French Riviera. A luxurious Provence wedding venue featuring beautiful landscaped gardens, a stunning infinity pool and elegant rooms. I haven’t photographed a wedding here yet but it’s on my hit list! So, don’t hesitate to message me if you are getting married at Chateau Saint-Martin.

With its stunning views, enchanting gardens, and elegant reception rooms, this venue will transport you and your guests to a fairytale world.
