Your wedding weekend starts here

Chateau Engalin was imagined in the mind of a true creative genius whose love of art, design and entertaining was a guiding principle in establishing this very special and unique wedding venue in the Southwest of France. A Chateau Engalin wedding weekend is a four-day affair. You and your guests will enjoy exceptional food and drink in a series of beautifully designed indoor and outdoor spaces. Chateau Engalin is all about creating a rich, unforgettable experience. Attention to detail is paramount in everything we do from inspiring culinary thinking, exquisite decor to a very personal, bespoke service.

Chateau Engalin Wedding Planning Team


Lou and Guillaume are the Engalin wedding planners, and no wedding at the Chateau happens without them. Lou set up  French-Bague-ette in 2016 to provide anglophone couples wishing to get married in France, the most exceptional planning service. Her ever growing black-book is second to none with all the most exciting suppliers. Lou and Guillaume are there to support, guide and advise you. Their primary role is to ensure your wedding is perfect without you having have to think about a thing, except having a wonderful time! They help to keep everyone calm and focused but also enjoy immersing themselves in the love and happiness that exist at the heart of all the best weddings. They are an outstanding team and no wedding at Engalin would be possible without them.


The estate is steeped in history and mysticism. The sacred eighteenth-century Rose Chapel Ruin is a short walk from the Chateau and the most picturesque and romantic space for your wedding ceremony.  Say ‘I do’ under the arches infront of the romanesque bell tower. The elegant and carefully restored Rose Chapel Ruin is an intimate, secluded setting amongst nature, a perfect backdrop for couples to exchange their vows and honour their personal promise and commitment to each other.


Excellent food and drinks are a central tenant of the Engalin experience. There is a philosophy that sits at the heart of the Food Lab – to feast well is to celebrate life and the very act of sharing food and drink is a loving way to connect and bring people together. The feasting is a total immersive experience, appealing to all the senses. Meals created with passion and a commitment to excellence that is unmatched by other wedding venues in France.


Engalin is all about scale, light and how groups of people interconnect. Nothing is left to chance; it is all part of a vision to make everything a celebration. The estate and grounds have been meticulously designed to create a series of different interior and exterior spaces to enhance every moment of your weekend. The way guests meet and greet each other, talk, laugh, and connect is all part of the magic. The interconnection between indoor and outdoor is intentional. Every time your guests meet, the moment is special and to be celebrated


Nothing feels more indulgent than staying in a sumptuous room in a grand and imposing building. It is the ultimate luxury and the Engalin bedroom suites, each with their own en-suite bathroom, have all been designed with quality and comfort in mind. The rooms are finished to the highest standard, with the finest linen, soaps and towels and each room has been personalised with bespoke pieces of art. Retreating to your room should be the ultimate pause, a time to reflect, relax, recharge and muse on the pleasures of the weekend.
