Getting married in Vendée

Getting married on the Côte de Lumières, what do you say? If you are tempted but are still hesitating, rest assured the Vendée has more than one asset to seduce future bride and groom.

Where to get married in Vendée?

If you want to get married by the ocean, the Vendée coast offers two very different aspects. To the north, the Marais Breton Vendéen is a natural area, made up of salt marshes. It is imbued with ancestral traditions and very well preserved. The South Vendée coast is dotted with seaside resorts, including the most famous: Les Sables-d'Olonne. You will make a trendy and festive wedding!

For a touch of originality, get married in the Vendée islands. The island of Noirmoutier is very friendly, while the island of Eyes is more wild and natural.

Where to take beautiful wedding photos in Vendée?

For your wedding album, either you choose a professional photographer or you trust your loved ones. Both options have advantages and disadvantages. The professional is generally a safe bet. You can study his work beforehand and check that it suits your style well. It has quality equipment and sometimes offers additional services, such as a photobooth, same-day photo sales, etc.

If you prefer to stay in the private setting, with your loved ones, you make sure to have different angles of view of your ceremony. The photos will probably be less formal and more original. And you may be surprised at the amount of photos provided! You will only have to draw to compose your album.

Here are some ideas of places that will make an ideal backdrop to immortalize the most beautiful day of your life:
