ABOUT

The First Glance

Nicknamed the Little Versailles of the Cote d’Azur, the Château was built in the 19th century for a famous perfumer, Leon Chiris, who was one of the pioneers of the French perfume industry. The estate spreads across 10 acres and consists of the Château and Villa Norah, an Art-Deco villa which was fully restored in 2019. This estate can accommodate up to 40 people and host 120 for evening celebrations.

With breathtaking views of the Valley of Grasse and Cannes, you and your guests will be immersed in the real French Provencal experience. Start the weekend of festivities with a pre-wedding dinner in the private gardens of Villa Norah, surrounded by wild roses and lavender. The next day, get ready in the Royal Suite, which is adorned with 24k gold, marble and crystal chandeliers. Walk over to the panoramic temple for the ceremony which offers the most spectacular views of Côte d'Azur. For the celebratory dinner, head to the Royal Salons and enjoy French delicacies sourced from the local region. Think seafood platters, gourmet cheeses, foie gras, coq au vin… the list can go on forever!

This estate is a perfect wedding destination to enjoy for a getaway with loved ones. Today, the Château is under private management by a lovely French family and they have previously hosted 50 weddings.

Frequently Asked Questions

What kind of wedding can I have in France?

+

If you would like to have the legal ceremony in France, there are typically three types of wedding ceremonies you can have:

1. Civil Ceremony: Performed by the local mayor or town officer in a Town Hall (mairie) and are open to the public. The civil service is a requirement to become legally married in France before hosting a religious or other symbolic wedding at another venue. This is also commonly called PACS (‘pacte civil de solidarité’).

2. Religious Ceremony. Performed by the local priest in a church setting and you must already be legally married in your home country or in the Town Hall in France.

3. Symbolic Ceremony: A humanist wedding does not require any legal documents and is not legally binding. Instead, you have the freedom to personalise the ceremony to reflect your values and beliefs. Due to the residency requirements, expats commonly choose to have their legal ceremony in their country of residence and fly to France for the celebrations. This is the quickest and easiest approach for a wedding abroad.

What documentation is needed to get married in France?

+

The quickest and easiest approach for a wedding abroad is to have the legal ceremony in your country of residence and fly to France for the celebrations and host a “symbolic-style” ceremony.

However, if you would like to process the legal paperwork in France, Europeans & UK citizens require the following for a civil ceremony.

1. Proof of residency in France for at least 30 days prior to the application, for at least one of the parties

2. Certificate of Non Impediment (certificat de célibat): A certificate you receive from your local counsel, stating you are free to marry. This is also known as a CNI. Each person in the couple requires one and is valid for three months.

3. Certificate of Law (certificat de coutume): Customs Certificate stating that your home country's marriage customs are similar to those of France e.g. you cannot have seven wives. It should be dated less than 6 months before your wedding or PACS.

4. A valid passport

5. Original birth certificate

6. Proof any previous marriages have ended (Divorce Decree or Death Certificate)

*all the above must be translated into French by a translator authorised by the French Embassy.

Who can get married in France?

+

To get legally married in France, you must have a proof of residency at least 30 days prior to your wedding application. For this reason, Non-French couples often choose to have a legal wedding in their own country and come to France for the religious or symbolic venue. Same-sex civil unions have been officially recognised as of 2013. Couples must be 18 years old to legally marry, and under-18s must have written parental consent.

What is the process to get married in France?

+

The quickest and easiest approach for a wedding abroad is to have the legal ceremony in your country of residence and fly to France for the celebrations and host a “symbolic-style” ceremony.

However, if you would like to process the legal paperwork in France, you will need to be slightly more organised (or get support from a local planner!). For European citizens, it is often recommended to contact the local French town hall (mairie) 6-12 months before your ideal wedding date to find out about local civil partnership laws, including what documents you and your partner will need.

Typically, you must bring your translated documents (stamped with an Apostille) to the local Town Hall and apply for marriage at least 10 days before the wedding date. Once you receive your marriage license it will remain valid for twelve months.

You are required to have 2 witnesses and 1 interpreter during the ceremony. At the end of the ceremony, you will receive a Livret de Famille (official book) with your marriage recorded. This is not the marriage certificate, you must apply to the Town Hall stating the date and location of your wedding in addition to your full names.

What is the quickest & easiest way to get married in France?

+

The quickest and easiest approach for a wedding abroad is to have the legal ceremony in your country of residence and fly to France for the celebrations for a “symbolic-style” ceremony. This means that you do not need to worry about sharing, translating or completing additional documents for a civil or religious ceremony as you are already legally married. When you come to France, you can celebrate your commitment to one another and personalise the ceremony in a way that reflects your values and beliefs (personal vows, favorite songs, poetry, gift exchanges, religious elements etc).
