By guest editor Christine Mintcheva from Christies Wedding
As a Bride, the dream venue is what we envisage for our perfect day. Christies is a luxury destination wedding planning service that specialises in organising bespoke weddings in luxury chateaus, country houses and fine hotels in the Lyon region of France. Situated in the South East of France, the city of Lyon boasts to be the gastronomic capital of the world, therefore ideal for any wedding reception.
Located 40 mins from Lyon in the heart of the golden stone country, Chateau Bagnols is surrounded by moats towers and in the midst of the vineyards. This 13th century chateau has perfectly manicured French gardens, as well as a beautiful Roman pool! This venue would be ideal for an outdoor ceremony and you would not be short of many a picture opportunity!
Chateau Bagnols is a five-star hotel spa with its very own fine dining restaurant that would be ideal for your wedding guests.
Radisson Blu Lyon
The Radisson Blu is located in the heart of the business district in Lyon, Part Dieu. The Radisson captivates with its elegant event space and provides panoramic views of the city and the Alps, making it the perfect backdrop for any wedding in Lyon.
Chateau de la Pizay
Located in the heart of the Beaujolais region, this chateau and spa resort will not disappoint. Upon arrival you will be greeted by an impressive tree lined lane that leads straight up to the chateau. The remarkable architecture and beautiful vineyards surrounding the property will provide you and your guests the wow factor whilst creating a romantic ambiance.
