Organise your destination wedding in a French chateau with reception halls of different styles and from different periods in history. For one or two nights take a magnificent journey through time… with no curfews. More than simply offering a wedding banquet hall for hire, the chateau opens up the entire estate for your wedding: the Grande Galerie, the Salle des Tentures, the Music Room, the Cellars and the Oriental Pavilion, ideal for a Bar Mitzvah, henna ceremony or brunch...

If you are celebrating your romantic wedding at the chateau on a weekday, you can hire the estate from the night before, and enjoy the freedom to pursue the night until the fragrance of the dawn, to select the caterer of your choice, to sample fine wines from the medieval cellars, and the freedom to enjoy authentic tagines in the Oriental Pavilion or a barbecue brunch by the ornamental pool the following day.

Chateau de Vallery, a fairytale wedding in France

The Grande Galerie is one of the reception halls included in the hire of this chateau for weddings in France, and the jewel of your celebration. This is where the heart of Chateau de Vallery beats. It stands on the same level as the grounds and the music rooms and is equipped with outstanding sound and light systems. This wedding banquet hall dates back to 1550 and remains one of Pierre Lescot's masterpieces.

Best use? For the dance floor at your fairytale wedding in France. But you can also choose it as the setting for a dinner. The terrace is ideal for admiring amazing firework displays - possibly set to music! The "La Cornue" kitchen (30m2) is a must for the Grande Galerie.

wedding reception halls

The Salle des Tentures is one of several wedding reception halls at the chateau. It is graced with a 400-m2 trompe-l’œil inspired by the Field of the Cloth of Gold (Camp du Drap d’Or), where François 1 of France met with Henry VIII of England in 1520, some 28 years before Marshal St André acquired Vallery. The statues seem to step out of the shadows, urging us to contemplate this masterpiece...

Best use? Cocktail for 240 people and dinner for 140 guests at most (adjoining premises of 42m2 are superbly equipped for caterers). Drinks also could be served in the Music Rooms, with dancing later on in the Grande Galerie.

Château de Vallery 12th-century cellar

Vaulted, 12th-century cellars: a string of cellars lit by candlelight, easily accessible from the chateau's dry moat. Best use? Invite your guests to a tasting of vintage wines (mainly Burgundies) before moving on to your reception.



The obvious starting point for a stroll would be the 12th-century wine cellars. Here, more than anywhere else, the soul of the château is palpable. Saint-André planted the numerous vines we see illustrated on engravings of Vallery by Androuet du Cerceau.

Passionately ambitious, the marshal did not hesitate to send ox-drawn carts to fetch soil from the four corners of France. According to Brantôme’s writings, King Henry II himself helped stock the château’s cellars. A tour of the cellars today is like a journey into the past. No vintage is insignificant. Each one can remind us of the birth of a child, an encounter or a revolution. Wine draws us together; it has so much to say that it is a natural federator. Wine confides in us about its origins and its traditions, adding charisma and eloquence to any celebration. Let us not forget that we are in Burgundy here, and reserve pride of place for a noble Chardonnay, a St Romain, Meursault or Chablis...
