Welcome to Château des Buis...
It is every girl's dream to marry their prince in a historic, romantic castle with sweeping views.
Château des Buis is a substantial 13th century property that has had only 2 owners throughout its 800-year history - the present custodians having lived at the Château for over 350 years. The 'Château des Buis' derives its name from the type of box hedging that can be seen around the formal gardens and is typical of borders used in both French and Italian (Italianate) garden designs in many Châteaus and Palaces - including Versailles.
The Château's main function has been as a family home. However, from April to October 2013, 'Les Chatelains' (owners) permitted a limited number of Exclusive Weddings & Vow Renewals to take place on the property.
Whilst the rooms occupied by owners will remain private, this accounts only for 30% of the space available. The remainder of the property and grounds will be offered for the exclusive hire to bridal couples who wish to exchange their vows in this truly magnificent venue.
As part of this unique and exclusive experience, your host, 'le Chatelain', will provide a guided tour during the day to explain the history of the Château and guide you around some of its most historically-important features - including the hand-painted fresco from the Renaissance period and the 'Salle des Fresques'.
To ensure the best possible experience for you on your Wedding Day, our package includes the full time services of our own Wedding Planner and Professional Photographers (both of whom have extensive experience organising and photographing destination weddings across Italy & France).
We can cater for up to 200 people including the Bride & Groom and have kept the pricing as simple as possible.

Thank you so much for being so patient with all my manic emails and making our day so wonderful.
Lucy you were an absolute star! What would we have done without you. The day was excellent – you made everything look so perfect and made us feel so special. Everything was just perfect, thank you.
The wedding venue staff and organisation was excellent – we cannot thank you enough!
Our guests were impressed also and many have said that it was the best venue they had ever been to and the staff were polite and made it look so easy! The history around every corner just blew them away.
Everyone felt relaxed, and at home in your home, so once agin thank you for making our wedding day even more special!!!

We had the privilege to photograph this stunning new wedding venue for their marketing brochures and online materials. It is a 13th Century Château steeped in history and set in the most gorgeous surroundings. The host is the current owner of the property and they offer 'Exclusive Use' wedding and vow renewals to suit this very high class historical venue. A real must to consider when planning your wedding in France.
