Having married in a Chateau near Bergerac in 2011, we wanted everyone to be able to have the amazing wedding weekend that we had. So in 2012 we started our search for the perfect wedding chateau. We looked around different areas and saw a lot of chateaux. As soon as we saw Chateau La Gauterie we knew it was the one! We fell in love with it’s wonderful charm, elegance and the beautiful enchanting parkland. The perfect venue to hold your wedding.
Below are just some of the reasons to hold your big day here at Chateau La Gauterie.

‘At Chateau La Gauterie we want your Wedding day to be the perfect day you imagine it to be. Whilst we can recommend suppliers to you, this is your day and we won’t tie you to any.
And because you’re free to choose your own suppliers, your Wedding will be as individual as you are.
No 2 Weddings are the same. We also limit the number of Weddings we have per year. We are not a Wedding factory!
All Chateau La Gauterie Weddings are tailormade to your specific style, needs and budget.
I am available to assist you as much or as little as you would like while planning your big day, as I know planning a Wedding can be stressful and possibly even harder planning a Wedding abroad.
We have a fabulous cloud based Wedding Planning software that will make our lives easier and more efficient when it comes to your Wedding Planning’ Sarah
