Wedding catering and entertainment at Chateau de Fayolle
Wedding catering and entertainment is more than just ensuring your guests have something to eat and something to do. It is about getting the right ambience to let the conversation flow and the smiles dance. We will help you plan a bespoke program for your wedding day.
Professional catering service
Our experienced team of professional caterers will keep your guests fed and watered throughout the day. The menu will be agreed in advance with bride and groom so that you know exactly what is being served. We will discuss numbers, options, dietary requirements, food for kids, timings and serving style.
We also know that things can change, quickly, so we will do our best to accommodate any last minute changes such as the discovery of an additional vegetarian in the crowd!
Please ask for a list of menus to get an idea of the culinary delights we can provide you and your guests.
Included in your Premium Personal Wedding Package:
Cocktail de Fayolle
An option to provided to all guests on arrival, is a tempting sparkling wine with or without the local delicacy, walnut liquer – a personal favourite we know you’ll enjoy
You have a selection of canapés all based on local flavours and with vegetarian options – our catering team will float around your guests with a fine selection of amuse-bouches to keep stomachs happy before the main dinner.
Main sit-down dinner
The main dinner will be served in the summer dining room adjacent to the lovely swimming pool or for smaller parties, perhaps in the main dining room. A 5 course, silver service from a menu of your selection. The five courses consist of:
2. Fish course(Optional)
3. Main course
With a whole range of little touches such as a lovely French 'amuse bouche' to start off your wonderful gourmet meal, followed in between courses by possibly an Apple sorbet sitting in a little Pineau.
Coffee will also be served and this is included with in the price of the All Personal Wedding Packages.
We provide vegetarian/vegan dishes, which are sophisticated options and not just pasta with sauce. We also provide a children’s menu that is bespoke to the likes of your children - we know that kids can be fussy so we’ll happily serve the food they want to eat so that’s one less thing for you to worry about! If the tinys only eat sausages or chicken nuggets that’s fine.
Your catering package will be planned and co-ordinated by our wedding planner who will manage the catering team before, during and after your wedding ceremony.
Bespoke entertainment package
Whether you are looking to follow the traditions of an English wedding or wanting a unique experience in a French chateau, we will help you organise a fantastic entertainment package.
During the day we can organise bespoke entertainment to fuel the party atmosphere, and romantic background music from local musicians as canapés and food are served.
We will also decorate the private wedding chapel, and can also decorate the dining room and party hall with flowers of your choice to add a touch of elegance and beauty.
Evening music and dancing
Your Band or DJ will set-up the sound system in the Coach House (12m x 6m). The indoor area has roller doors to open the front of the dance floor to the courtyard. There is plenty of room for tables and chairs to be set-up outside in the Chateau courtyard, allowing your guests to enjoy the evening air and take a breather from dancing.
Outside also is your covered party bar with a friendly and experienced team of bar staff to keep the party fuelled with both alcoholic and soft drinks.
Opening the Chateau grounds to your wedding party
At Chateau de Fayolle, we want people to enjoy the atmosphere of a French chateau and offer people the chance to move around the venue. From aperitifs on the front lawn, to drinks and canapes on the back lawn, then a wedding meal around the pool, and followed by the Coach House at the front for the disco. Our stunning grounds with charming walks are also open to the enjoyment of your wedding party.
If you desire a more intimate affair, then all of this could take place inside the Chateau itself. We can sit 20 - 25 in the dining room for a small intimate wedding and then provide coffee and digestifs in the drawing room, with the Coach House set up for the evening’s entertainment. We are flexible to your needs.
Throughout the Chateau and ground, we have lighting to create a magical atmosphere and warming ambience. The view of Chateau de Fayolle at night is truly spectacular and provides a romantic setting for getting married in France.
