Charlotte and Josh’s Fairytale Elopement

Charlotte and Josh found their chateau wedding in France, right here at Chateau Challain. Due to current events, they decided to elope to France after their planned luxury destination wedding had to be reconsidered. Although that didn’t stop us from offering everything France has to offer, from the safety of our castle walls to the bright lights of Paris in the summer. Charlotte and Josh got to taste everything this magical country could provide during their elopement. We all fell in love with Charlotte and Josh. Here’s what they thought of us…

Chateau Challain has been part of our love story since 2012 when we first visited and just knew this was the place we wanted to become husband and wife in front of all our friends and family. We planned a beautiful big wedding but with the pandemic, we decided not to move it and just run away together. It was the most magical experience of our lives and wouldn't change it for the world. Cynthia made it so special, and with the help of Alessandro and Flavio we have the most wonderful photos and movie to share with all our friends and family.

Max and Lylya’s Intimate wedding in France

Max and Lylya choose to have their intimate wedding here at the Chateau, sharing this beautiful memory with a select guest list of very special VIPs. Intimate weddings are some of our most beautiful affairs, it’s wonderful to see these smaller groups really indulge in all that the Chateau Challain has to offer. It’s one of the excellent advantages of a smaller wedding: you get to really invest your time and energy into a refined version of your dream wedding and share that vision with the ones you love.

We cannot stop thinking about these beautiful moments we spent at Chateau Challain. The most beautiful and spectacular castle we have ever seen for weddings. The magnificent woodwork inside the property or the excellent garden/grounds, and the staff made the whole weekend truly special. Everything turned out to be perfect. Our Dream Wedding came true! This simple "Thank You" cannot possibly say enough about the fabulous job Cynthia and her entire team did. We can't express enough of our appreciation. They made us feel like a King and Queen for the whole weekend. We thank our lucky stars that we found you, Cynthia. You are the best wedding planner we could ever dream of. We are still in awe when we look back on everything you did for us before, during, and after the wedding. Without you, our special day would not have been the picture-perfect event we always dreamed of. Your planning, preparation, attention to detail, and the surprises (singer from Paris, robe for girls) were terrific. Thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts. We appreciate you more than words can say. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
