Weddings

                             

 Chateau Lacanaud is the perfect place for a very romantic and luxurious wedding.

Located in the Dordogne, Southwest France, it was built in 1748.

We can hold weddings from 20 up to 150 guests, and can accommodate up to 20 guests over 9 bedrooms on the grounds however there is plenty of local accomodation near by for other guests. 

Lacanaud is set in 20 acres of grounds including formal gardens , over ten dedicated terraces, lakes and woodland walks. It is located in the glorious wine region of the Dordogne set up high in the rolling countryside. Only 3 kms from the local pretty bastide market town, replete with its charming bars and restaurants dotted around its medieval cobbled streets.

Chateau Lacanaud offers high quality accommodation throughout its two separate but interconnected dwellings, and is furnished with beautiful French-inspired furniture. It is fully centrally heated in winter, and offers en-suite bathrooms throughout.

The beautiful internal accommodation is complemented by equally impressive outdoor spaces, including a wonderful 12 x 6m heated saltwater infinity pool with views over the lake.

The Chateau and grounds have many different areas to celebrate each day of your wedding event, so keeping everything fresh and exciting

 

Envisage the most stunning  backdrop to the civil marriage ceremony, with guests moving into the dappled sunlight of the beautiful Chateau courtyard for the drinks reception. Your wedding breakfast can unfold in the magical gardens, surrounded by your loved ones as the sun sets over the Dordogne countryside- And then there is the welcome supper on the west terrace overlooking the lake, and the Sunday after wedding party around our magnificent infinity pool.

Our Couples love the main events which are staged at three unique locations around the  grounds.

 

We can also provide very experienced wedding planners to help you create a unique and personalized wedding.

They will walk you through the wedding planning process, step by step : help you select vendors that will cater to your specific needs (caterer, photographer, videographer, flowers and decoration, hair and make up …) and liaise with you throughout the year, maintain an up to date wedding schedule so each task is followed up to completion. One of their key services that complements the planning is the on the day coordination, so the actual wedding day is totally under control, and unfolds as per your vision.

 

“What was so amazing was that it was as if we were at three different parties over the weekend. We could never have expected such a magical experience. You made the weekend perfect! We cannot thank you enough”

There are many choices of beautiful spaces to hold the different parts of your wedding. You can choose to hold the ceremony in a variety of locations:

  • In front of the stunning infinity pool overlooking the lake
  • Within the enchanting entrance to the woods just off the steps from the infinity pool
  • In the beautiful courtyard of the Chateau

Equally your Wedding Breakfast can be held in a number of  delightful contrasting locations:

  • On the lawns overlooking the Chateau and the infinity pool
  • A stunning setting in front of the lake
  • In the beautiful courtyard of the Chateau

  • On the rear lawns overlooking a splendid view of the Chateau
  • In the beautiful courtyard of the Chateau

For the marquee itself you can choose any style you wish, and we would be happy to talk you through the choices.

For the night before the wedding and the day after there are also a number of enchanting choices you could make:

  • A host of options for the welcome supper on the evening before from a drinks reception followed by a simple supper with locally sourced ingredients to a gourmet supper with matching wines. The choice is yours.
  • For the day after the wedding perhaps a Brunch with Bloody Marys or a BBQ with cocktails or a long indulgent lunch with many beautiful courses.
  • Locations could be on the west terrace, or the Orangery, or by the infinity pool
