Today I thought I'd highlight our all inclusive Platinum Package, so you can get a better look at what this luxury destination wedding venue has to offer.
One of the best aspects of our platinum package is that we take out the strain of organizing a destination wedding in France, leaving you just to make the choices that count. From my experience I know that as you start to plan and discuss your wedding, you will begin to understand how complex the whole affair can be. But don't panic, here at Chateau Challain we are ready to help share that load. Our goal is to take out the strain, and stress out of a destination wedding, leaving you to enjoy the unforgettable experience. With over 12 years of experience organizing and planning weddings we have the perfect team ready to make your dream wedding come true.
So let's take a look at what you can expect from our all inclusive Platinum Package.
Chateau Challain is world famous for its accommodations. We invite you to step back in time, and enter a world of refined elegance. The bedrooms and suites of the Chateau have been wonderfully restored. You and your guests have full and exclusive access, something not many of our competitors offer. The memories of sleeping in a four poster bed in this 19th century historical monument will stay with you for ever. It really is a fairytale come true. Also on the grounds, we have our recently renovated Coach House, with its 10 ensuite rooms. Here can you expect some more modern creature comforts, yet still kept within a certain style that the French are famous for. All in all have room for up to 50 guests here at the Chateau, and have a trusted list of hotels and B&Bs in the area for extra guests.
If you are considering a French destination wedding then I find it hard to believe you haven't thought about the food. Let's face it the French are famous for their cuisine, and rightly so. We pride ourselves here at Chateau Challain on our food. During your three day stay you can expect to eat very well indeed. For your first night most of our guests choose the Hog Roast, served under the canopy of trees in our barbecue area. As with all the meals served here, you can expect beautiful table arrangement and design.
Each morning we offer a breakfast to die for, with a fantastic range of fresh French Patisseries that you'll never forget. We are talking cakes here people! Of course there's healthier options available fruit salads, yoghurts and so forth… but just to be sure, did I mention the cakes? This simple, yet extravagant delight is served in our very impressive grand dinning hall, which is the perfect place to touch base with your family and friends.
And then there's the reception dinner. Our very talented in-house chef will prepare for you something truly unforgettable. Your five-course reception dinner includes canapés & a seasonal cocktail hour, followed by an exquisite starter, a delicious main course of your choice, a traditional French wedding cake, and at midnight a dream cheese buffet. Our menu will provide you with the choice you and your guests deserve.
On the big day itself you can bank on the same high levels of service, and choice. Unlike some other chateaux there are no hidden costs or fees for chair and table hire, we won't sneak in some hidden charge for renting something you didn't even consider. You'll get to choose from some of the most stunning locations a destination wedding venue has to offer.
Whether you choose our stunning gazebo, beautifully adorned with flowers and backdropped by this amazing Chateau, or our idyllic forest setting, or the secret garden by our memorial tower you'll have a truly memorable setting to say, 'I do'. As part of the package our harpist will serenaded you as you walk down the aisle. Our celebrant can perform your ceremony in english, if you like, and you can customize any detail you wish. You'll look your best too, with our top professional make up and hair artists. And to capture the whole event we include in our package both video and photography by internationally acclaimed professionals.
And finally what is a wedding without a party? Since the very day it was built Chateau Challain has been hosting parties, it was why they built it in the first place. And let's just say over the years it's got rather good at doing it. Our bar will serve your guests with beer and fine French wine until 1am, plus our DJ will help you dance the night away. And if that's not enough we'll make sure your night ends with a bang with our now traditional and explosive fireworks display by our in-house pyrotechnics expert.
So there you have it, everything you could dream of without the stress of having to find all those elements that make up the perfect fairytale destination wedding.
