While, like everybody else, we are hurrying and bustling around, trying to complete all the Christmas preparations in time, a recent delightful turn of event added to this organisational nightmare: I proposed!
We are both over the moon. My Fiancée is British and I am French and we decided to get married in France next year end of August or beginning of September.
We are therefore frantically looking for a nice location to receive about 100 guests in the Orthez/Pau (64) area. We would prefer a château/mansion type of venue and any suggestion would be much welcome!
I don't know your area, but I can advise of a place on Lake Annecy, a hotel with a big garden, with lake access which is private to the hotel.I know the owners quite well, qnd know thqt every wedding they host goes off without a hitch (except for the couple getting hitched) They even once had a couple arrive by boat.
It's in the 74, A town called Talloires, and the hotel is called the Beau-site. I think their website is http://www.beausite-talloires.com/ . Even if not for a weeding, they'd make a peaceful getaway afterwards!!
Funnily enough, we just went to see it "in passing" on our way back from visiting another beautiful one this morning in Orion. We really liked Château de St Picq but there was no one home (we wrote the number down) to visit it.
I am a non-religious wedding celebrant who conducts ceremonies throughout France. There are two venues - not quite in your area, but not far away - in the Gers. One is the Chateau de Lartigolle, at 32550 Pessan and the other is the Castelnaud de Fieumarcon near 32700 Lectoure.
Hi, how did you go finding a venue in Orthez? I am an Australian that is looking at getting married in France next year. We have recently come across the name of ‘Orthez’ and are thinking it might be a nice region to get married in, but obviously have no idea where to start! I am interested to hear how your wedding went.
