Types of wedding ceremonies in France
Your need to understand the difference between symbolic, religious and legally-binding marriage ceremonies. We want you to pick the type of ceremony that is most suitable for your situation and one that is most meaningful for the two of you. Below is a quick summary, but for the full description send us an enquiry.
A legally-binding marriage ceremony in France is only possible if you can spend 40 days in the country immediately before the wedding day. If you have a parent permanently residing in France, or you own property here, the residency requirement may be wavered at the discretion of the Mayor of the town where you wish to be married.
A religious ceremony may be your best option if you want a traditional Catholic wedding in a beautiful church. French churches will allow priests to conduct ceremonies in English, although very few local priests can speak it. Keep in mind that you must already be civilly married before the religious ceremony can take place.
Symbolic ceremonies are the most popular choice for couples planning their destination wedding in France. In fact, it can be performed at any venue of your choice and allows you full control over how to celebrate your micro wedding. It can be as formal or informal as you wish and can include the exchange of rings and your own vows.
…still not sure?
It’s a once-in-a-lifetime event and we understand it may not be too easy for you to decide. Choosing the right type of ceremony is included in all our wedding packages for France. Your dedicated planner will be here to explain it all to you at each step of the way.

Weather… when to get married in France
You want to get married in France for its delicious French cuisine, its wines and… the weather! Well, keep in mind that France is a pretty large country with a variety of climates: in the North the regions of Britanny, Normandy and Hauts-de-France certainly don’t have the same warm summers as Provence, Cote d’Azur, Aquitaine, Midi-Pyrénées and Languedoc-Roussillon do.
At the same time, in the French Riviera strong winds can get uncomfortable even in the hottest of summer days. You better also avoid the South West of France in July and August, if you don’t want to melt with temperatures up to 40 degrees Celsius and scorching sun. In the Loire Valley instead, May could be risky for an outdoor French chateau wedding – it’s statistically the month with the most rainfalls during the year.
To protect yourself from both ends of the spectrum – a rainy day and a crazy hot day – we suggest you to consider renting a marquee, parasols or a canopy, or even booking a wedding venue which offers an indoor room to use as your plan B for the ceremony and reception. Be ready for all situations and you won’t ever be disappointed!

How to plan a destination wedding in France
Want to do a small wedding in France but don’t know where to start? Peach Perfect Weddings is here to help!
Planning a destination wedding in France is a lot more work – and maybe stress – especially if you live abroad. But as your Peach Perfect local wedding planner, I’ll take care of all of that from the beginning. Once you show interest of getting married in France, I will get all the information needed to choose the perfect venue for you.
This can be done by phone or email, whatever suits you best. After finding out about all the facilities you need, the number of guests that will sleep at the venue and the type of reception you’d like to have, I will elaborate a package tailored to your needs.
You will have the chance to go over it and change anything you don’t like to meet your preferences and budget. As soon as you’ll approve the package, I’ll send you a booking agreement with the package inclusions and the payment information. You’ll be able to pay in installment depending on how far in advance you book.
Once the deposit has been received, we start planning! Peach Perfect Weddings takes care of booking suppliers and all the communication with them and puts you in contact with those suppliers you need to work with, like the celebrant. You’ll be making the decisions with regards to decoration, type of music, etc. but I will take out the hassle of looking for suppliers.
During the planning process of your destination wedding in France, I will be setting the times. I’ll send you all the documentation you need to be on the loop of everything. You will be the center of it, but we will make all the work.
The day of the wedding, everything will be set and one of us will be there to deal with the coordination and the little issues that might come up. You won’t even notice us! The coordinator will make sure that you enjoy your day and have fun with your people.
