Weddings in Provence - Designed & Planned by Willow & Oak Events

Getting married in France

Chateaux Galore | French Cuisine

Fairytale Settings | Perfect Climate

One of the major benefits of having a destination wedding in Provence is the accessibility of the country through public transport, including trains, buses and international airports. Couples are often surprised that you can essentially get from Paris to Provence in just 2.5 hours! Maybe you've always known you'd like a dreamy destination wedding in Provence or you're just starting to consider it, either way we'd love to connect with you. In the meantime, why not find out more about the wedding planning services we offer in France?

Why get married in Provence?

• A multiple-day wedding celebration surrounded by your nearest and dearest in a chateau you get to call your own - butler often included. Don’t mind if we do...

• Al fresco dining where you can enjoy some of the best culinary masterpieces in the world, surrounded by cedar trees and locally sourced vino.

 • Riding through the streets of France in a classic car, stopping for a dip in the Mediterranean listening to La Vie en Rose.

• An itinerary that Jackie O herself would approve of, including spa treatments, wine tastings and history, all organically intertwined.

If this sounds as dreamy to you as it does to us, we know that our processes and expertise will ensure your dream French wedding is perfectly within reach.

You might just fall in love with France for your wedding destination if you dream of:

Our French love affair started like many others, through travel. Many trips later and we knew it was somewhere we had to share with you. We now proudly serve weddings in France, with a particular love of Provence (see here for our selection of some of the best wedding venues in Provence). As a Willow & Oak couple, we share the list of our favourite venues, ranging from chateaux in the countryside to museums overlooking the sea to luxury hotels in the city. In addition to venues, we have proudly built a network of suppliers that are second to none.

Our Wedding Planner in France

I'm Alexis - Alabamian ex-pat, devoted traveller, amateur painter, lover of dogs (especially rescues + golden retrievers), avid reader, story teller and our lead wedding planner in France. A small town outside of Roma, known as Ariccia, changed my entire life trajectory. That small town introduced me to my best friend and co-founder, Haley, and my husband, a charming Englishman and now marketing director of Willow & Oak, Ben.

Philanthropy started my journey into events and through what now seems like a whirlwind of various milestones, led me to fall head over heels for wedding design and coordination. Your story fuels my inspiration and that inspiration is ever-growing. I love the South of France, especially Provence, where you can find me scouting for the best sunflower and lavender fields, buying way too many baskets, creating memories over al-fresco style dining and squeezing in one too many wine tastings, but overall curating beautiful destination events. 

If you let it, France will be the most inspiring place in the world. So, whether you're in town or looking for someone to plan your destination wedding, I'd love to hear from you!
