To choose a wedding ceremony venue

The best way to get married in France, is organizing a ceremony called “cérémonie laïque”.

The advantage of this kind of “secular ceremony” is that you can organize it as you wish. Location, timing, content: let speak your desires and your creativity.

The ceremony may well be:

  • in the park or on the terrace of the venue you’ve chosen,
  • in the garden of your property (if it is large enough or if you are few),
  • indoors in your venue,
  • in an unusual place (in a tent, an art gallery, football stadium, …)
  • in a pretty field if you plan a country wedding,
  • at the beach, with sea, sand and sun.

Before choosing your ceremony wedding venue, have a check with french laws, especially if you want to get married on a beach.

How to choose your top celebrant ?

Main tips:

  • Watch your feeling with him/her.
  • Does he/her a member of an specific network? He’s more likely to be up-to-date with wedding trends!
  • Plan a phone interview before a meeting: watch the celebrant’s attitudes, his/her speaking voice, etc.
  • Visit its websites: are there many details? Does it look professional? Does it all the obligatory informations?
  • Visit many websites (for example in this directory), but don’t see lots of celebrants: you won’t waste your time if you prepare at home, and plan three face to face maximum.
