Why have a winter wedding?

A season of excellence

Two lovers unite at Château de Vallery, a Renaissance jewel. It’s wintertime and the living is fragile. The cosy chateau seems to tremble with emotion at the staggering sight of the northern Burgundy landscape. Pure, fresh air shines through floating rays of sunshine, on the sparkling snowy grounds. Yes, we can make snow fall at night, at the heart of the estate... As long as our newlyweds so desire! We can make other miracles happen, but don’t try to fathom our ways: just keep dreaming...
A winter wedding date also means only the best professionals: florist, orchestra, photographer, famous DJ or star chef can all be yours. When you choose a chateau as your wedding venue, far from the usual summer parties, you can be sure that all your guests will be there, ready to party! Here, an hour from Paris, for your ceremony in the chateau or church of Vallery, and according to your reception's own retroplanning.

Wedding, stay and travel

Winter majestically fires up the festive performing arts and delights in every detail... Château de Vallery promises to deliver bride and groom dream wedding, set to a background of fiery colors: 1000 flames flicker to the sounds of music in the park, when the dark night is young. A fire at the edge of the forest goes on into the night, later moving into the big fireplace of the Oriental Pavilion, one of the 4 large reception halls in the chateau, all of which are heated, as are the 28 bedrooms.
Consideration should also be given to the special winter wedding offer "Love, Fire and Snow...". Perhaps the "fabulous team" at this French venue or your wedding planner will be able to recommend the best season for you to get married near Paris. Finally, drawing a close to these combinations of hot and cold, fire and air, and joyful bodies and relaxed minds... is the prospect of a honeymoon in the tropics!
Let this chateau win you over for a winter wedding!

Anne-Claire got married one March 11th

"Exceptional place for a magnificent wedding. All the elements and details are planned by the chateau to make everything work beautifully on D-Day. And when, despite the careful preparation of the bride and groom, some unforeseen events occur, the chateau team is there to help, to find a solution and even, in our case, to become a wedding photographer during the evening. A huge thank you for this magical moment that we will never forget."
Lieu exceptionnel pour un mariage magnifique. Tous les éléments et détails sont prévus par le château pour que tout se passe magnifiquement bien le jour J, et lorsque malgré la préparation quelques événements imprévus se produisent, l'équipe du château est là pour aider, pour trouver une solution et même, dans notre cas, pour s'improviser photographe de mariage pendant la soirée. Un énorme merci pour ce moment magique que nous n’oublierons jamais.

Kim and Mat got married one December 8th

"From the first visit we fell in love with this magical place which allowed us to make our guests travel and dream throughout our wedding. The places have no limits but your imagination, and we were able to organize our winter wedding as we wanted (great benefit: the whole place is heated). It is without doubt that we have chosen this chateau for a winter wedding.

We would like to thank the entire Château team for their support and guidance during the preparation and execution of this crazy weekend. Think of the fireworks, it's crazy! Congratulations to the owners for the restoration and decoration work that pays tribute to the history of the castle. What a joy to have seen our guests marvel at each discovery.

In the end, the hardest part was to get down from our little cloud..."
Dès la première visite nous avons eu un coup de coeur pour ce lieu magique qui nous a permis de faire voyager et rêver nos invités tout au long de notre mariage. Les lieux n'ont de limite que votre imagination, et nous avons pu organiser notre mariage en hiver comme nous le souhaitions (gros + : l'intégralité des lieux est chauffée). C’est sans équivoque que nous avons choisi ce château pour notre mariage en hiver.

Nous remercions toute l'équipe du Château pour leur accompagnement et leur soutient pendant la préparation et le déroulement de ce week-end de folie. Pensez aux feux d'artifice, c'est dingue ! Bravo aux maîtres des lieux pour le travail de restauration et de décoration qui rend hommage à l'histoire du château. Quelle joie d'avoir vu nos invités s’émerveiller à chaque découverte.

Au final, le plus dur a été de redescendre de notre petit nuage...
Kim & Mat.

Dannielle et Mikhail, late autumn

"Our wedding was nothing short of a fairytale at Chateau de Vallery. That winter we did a lot of research & had a long list of criteria that the venue had to meet as we were coming from New York & asking our closest friends and family to make the journey all the way to France. From the moment we drove through the gates, we immediately felt the energy & love that the property has & were graciously welcomed by Jonathan & Patrice, who made us feel like family.

Patrice did a wonderful job maintaining the authenticity of the history of the chateau but also thoughtful in creating a venue that would create an intimate, fun & entertaining affair for any guest; there are so many areas around the property to entertain to keep it exciting. Fabien was amazing & really went above & beyond to ensure our wedding was perfect & our guests had a fabulous experience; especially our grandparents who he chauffered around in a golf cart. Our guests are still talking about our wedding.
Dannielle & Mikhail.

A huge thank you to the whole team of the chateau, especially Fabien and Stéphane, who were incredibly kind and took care of us throughout our stay. We will never forget everything you have done for us: more than your job. Words alone would not be enough to express all the emotion we felt.

We would like to thank you for your more than perfect organization. Everything was well organized and prepared. 3 days, 2 nights is not enough, if we could live it all our lives and relive these moments forever.

We are proud to have left our mark... on this precious land! The heat won't take them away! Long live the winter wedding fairytale!!!

Que dire ? Les mots ne suffiront pas... Nostalgie quand tu nous tiens... 1 mois après nous écrivons ce message... Le Château a transmis de la magie dans les yeux des gens et des images sont maintenant inoubliables. Durant les sommeils, on essaye de s'y replonger.

Lucie and Pierre were married one February 24th

"With a lot of delay, a big thank you to you... We imagine it, we project it, we dream it, but when it happens, it's just magical! the setting transported us and our guests, during these three fabulous days. Almost 12 months later we still have stars in our eyes, and beyond the event, from the castle, the magic is also working thanks to you and your teams.

So again, simply but sincerely: THANK YOU.

See you soon"
Avec beaucoup de retard, un grand merci à vous... On se l'imagine, on se projette, on le rêve, mais quand ça arrive, c'est tout simplement magique ! le cadre nous a transporté nous et nos invités, durant ces trois fabuleux jours. Presque un an après nous avons encore des étoiles plein les yeux, et au-delà de l'évènement, du château, la magie opère aussi grâce vous et vos équipes.

Alors encore, simplement mais sincèrement : MERCI.

À bientôt
Lucie & Pierre

Alexandrine and Eric got married one November 20th

"What a fairy tale! What magic! There is no doubt that the fairies and elves were summoned during these three days, so beautiful and sweet was everything. Our guests didn't want to leave, as for us, the bridegrooms, we would have liked it never to stop. We fell in love at first sight, as we were right to listen to our hearts.

Our wedding would not have been so beautiful without the team of the castle to whom we express all our tenderness and friendship. Special mention to Stéphane who kept me from all the anguish of the bride.

Quelle féérie ! Quelle magie ! Nul doute que les fées et les elfes furent convoqués durant ces trois jours, tant tout fut beau et doux. Nos invités ne voulaient pas repartir, quant à nous, les mariés, nous aurions voulu que cela ne s'arrête jamais. Nous avons eu un coup de foudre lors de notre première visite, comme nous avons eu raison d'écouter notre coeur.

Notre mariage n'aurait pas été aussi magnifique sans l'équipe du château à qui nous témoignons toute notre tendresse et notre amitié. Mention spéciale à Stéphane qui a su me garder de toutes les angoisses de la jeune mariée.

Alexandrine & Éric
