Elope to France, here at Chateau Challain

Elopements are, without doubt, one of the hottest trends in the wedding industry today, and it's easy to understand why, especially elopement packages abroad. Some couples elope as a wonderfully romantic way to declare their love, just the two together in some far flung beautiful destination. For others, an elopement is a way to invite a close group of friends to witness their ceremony, and spoil them to affordable luxury. And there's always the short honeymoon break for the busy couples after their large family wedding, the chance to wear 'the dress' just one more time.
