Romantic wedding venue in the Dordogne with a planner and catering, for woodland ceremonies and bespoke celebrations
Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends. Les Rivieres Gites, Dordogne, France, sleeps 5 - 37 in 17 bedrooms.
At Les Rivieres Gites, we can offer an enchanting French countryside wedding venue surrounded by nature with the exclusive use of the 10-acre holiday complex over 7 nights. Nestled in the Dordogne countryside and easily accessible from UK airports, Les Rivieres Gites enables you to extend the wedding celebrations and combine with a lovely holiday with your family and friends.
We have accommodation for up to 37 people in 5 properties which all share the pool, games room, fishing lake, gym and other activities on site. After exchanging your vows in the woodland clearing, under the canopy of trees with just the birds singing and the wind rustling through the leaves, you can enjoy reception drinks and lawn games in the garden before a delicious wedding breakfast under the covered terrace. The covered terrace is the perfect blank canvas for your theme and can host up to 40 guests. There is a bar area next door which can be pre stocked by yourselves from the local wine merchants with beer on tap!
For the wedding meal you can choose from a formal 3 course menu, a bespoke sharing experience or a relaxed barbecue. We work with a number of trusted caterers that specialize in using local, seasonal produce to your specifications. The evening can finish with dancing to a band or disco into the early hours under the festoon lighting.
During your stay we can also arrange excursions – perhaps a bit of wine tasting or for the more energetic some canoeing or tree climbing. Or a pre or post wedding pizza evening using the restored original bread oven on site. It’s a relaxed fun evening ending around the firepit toasting marshmallows and star gazing!
We work with fantastic suppliers to make the planning easy including photographers, florists, wine merchants, hair and makeup artists, yoga teachers, caterers. If possible, we recommend a visit so we can show you around, discuss your needs, meet the caterers and other suppliers, and help plan your perfect day or week!!
