Magnificent chateau with a converted stables for weddings with up to 120 guests

Just thirty minutes from the Eurotunnel, the chateau sleeps 26 in great style. The stables have been recently renovated to provide everything needed to host a wonderful wedding.

Description

A venue that offers the style and adventure of a French wedding, without the cost and inconvenience of catching flights. Set in ten acres of parkland, the chateau provides a magnificent backdrop. There are twelve bedrooms, with eleven bathrooms - and a dining room table that can seat thirty.

Just twenty-five metres from the chateau are the stables. The newly renovated space can seat 120 guests, has wonderful light for photographs and great acoustics for speeches. The building can be completely open on one side if the weather is good, or closed if not. In addition to the main area, there is a bar, a room for dancing, kitchens and toilets.

All the bedrooms at the chateau were completely refurbished in 2017. There are nine double bedrooms (eight with en suite bathrooms), two twin bedrooms (both en suite) and a bedroom with four singles and separate bathroom. So that’s room for 26 in all (or 17 if no one shares a bed).

The chateau itself is the perfect base for a wedding. The grand entrance is ideal for formal pictures, we have a wonderful bridal suite — and there are two large areas for bridesmaids and groomsmen to dress. We even have two staircases in the house, so accidental sightings of each other before the ceremony can be avoided! Most importantly, the chateau is large enough to allow a wedding party of up to 26 to stay together in great comfort. The dining room table seats 30 — ideal if you are planning a dinner the night before the wedding for family and friends. We can also park 30 cars on a lawn away from the chateau to keep everything looking beautiful.

The chateau sits on the edge of a village. There is a beautiful church a short stroll from the gates, and a hotel that is a five-minute drive away. Wedding planning is available to those who would like help, and there is a list of potential local suppliers for those who prefer to organise things themselves.

If this sounds like it might suit you, please get in touch to chat about your plans — or arrange a visit. We’d love to meet you!

Location

Hauts-de-France Wedding VenuesThis region is quite possibly one of the most accessible areas of France. If you want a wedding that is stress-free and easy in terms of execution then this is certainly the right location for you.

Nord–Pas-de-Calaisis located in the north-west area of France and it is also the closest point to the UK as well. It is very easy for you to catch a ferry from Dover and this is all thanks to the Eurostar. It’s also only an hour and a half from London, and it is home to some of the most beautiful cathedrals in the whole country. Picardy is the other city here, and the transport links are just as good. If you want to get away for the weekend then this is the best option and it is also home to the capital of the region, Amiens. It is home to some of the most gothic cathedrals in the world and if you want a good wedding backdrop then you will be glad to know that it is packed full of castles, picturesque countryside and even stately gardens as well, so you will never be short of places to visit or photos to take when your big day comes around.

Reviews

  • We had the most incredible weekend of our lives at Chateau last month. Amanda and Dan’s stunning chateau became our beautiful wedding venue, and it’ll always hold a very special place in our hearts.

    We booked our wedding before the stable block event space had been renovated. Amanda sold us her vision, and the final result far exceeded our expectation. It is the most perfect venue for large celebrations (there were 100 of us), with on-site accommodation for 22 in the gorgeous chateau itself. Our guests all mentioned how quick and easy the journey from the UK was, making it a brilliant destination wedding spot without the hassle and expense of flights.

    Like with planning any wedding I’m sure, we had a few challenges along the way, but Amanda was very efficient at responding to our emails and always tried to help resolve any complications. Amanda helpfully recommended local taxi companies, a florist, a wine supplier, b&b’s for our guests, and the catering / waiting teams who we brought across from the UK. Everything came together perfectly, it was exactly how we’d envisaged it, and we wouldn’t have changed a single thing.

    Very helpfully, Amanda and Dan decided to stay nearby on the weekend of our wedding, to help iron out any creases so that the day could run smoothly. We were very grateful for this, and Amanda and Dan mingled seamlessly with our wedding guests, inspiring many of them to ponder their own French chateau renovation plans.

    We can’t rate this place and it’s owners highly enough. We’re already planning to return to the chateau for a big family christmas or wedding anniversary reunion, and we think you’re missing out if you don’t go and see it for yourself!

  • Thank you so much for letting us have our wedding at the beautiful Chateau. The chateau is so elegant, peaceful and beyond gorgeous, and with so many bedrooms it meant that we could spend the week before the wedding with our friends, just relaxing and enjoying each other’s company. We had film nights, tennis tournaments, had a Murder Mystery night, played pool, explored the grounds… there really was something for everyone to do. We were able to be together and have our own space – it was perfect.

    Everyone who came to the wedding said the chateau looked like it was from a fairytale and I would have to agree! It is so beautiful inside and out – as soon as we saw it we knew it was perfect for the wedding and it was so convenient for all our guests from UK and Europe! Each room feels true to the original house, old fashioned and tasteful but comfortable and modern too. Our bedroom was the best room imaginable to get ready for a wedding in; bright, spacious, with gorgeous views and large windows – a photographer’s dream and the getting ready photos have come out beautifully. The venue as a whole has a huge number of places for gorgeous wedding pictures - numerous balconies and beautiful staircases, the stunning entrance hall, lovely architectural features like the fireplaces and stained glass, and even a lovely bridge over the river to a wildflower meadow! I really don’t think anyone could ask for more.

    Dan and Amanda were complete stars throughout all the planning and the day itself – they were always contactable for the smallest thing and let us visit beforehand to get ideas for how we might want to decorate the wedding. They went absolutely above and beyond at all stages of the wedding – suggesting suppliers, helping us decorate on the day before and tidy afterwards, providing bunting, and even lifts to our guests that had forgotten to book a return taxi (sorry Dan!). The best part was the surprise that they had very kindly taken pictures and video as a very special and appreciated gift to us! We have pictures and video that we will be able to look back at for the rest of our lives and remember. They are truly lovely, kind people and have restored the chateau wonderfully – you could not ask for a better venue or a better pair of people to have on your side for your wedding.

    I would 100% recommend having your wedding here – the chateau makes for such an elegant venue, and the Stables offer so many options for different decorating styles. We had the wedding of our dreams here and could not have asked for a better experience here.
