Hitched in France

Sarlat la Caneda Nouvelle-Aquitaine , 24170

Farm fresh Catering

Sue and her team catered our wedding reception, dinner, party snacks as well as the day-after brunch, in an old castle near Bordeaux. Everything was great! They quite literally saved the day when our original dinner caterer suddenly canceled about 2 months before, and then again when our original brunch caterer had to go on medical leave just 2 weeks before the event. She is very easy to work with, completely catered to our full vegetarian wedding dinner wishes, and communicated well. The veggie food was all delicious and her famous sausages and rashers were served with brunch which were a massive hit. The dessert table options were all amazing as well.

Our friends are a rowdy and hungry bunch, and the team worked tirelessly to keep everyone satisfied, while still always smiling and just being so nice. Thanks again to Sue and her team!

Found our Dream Venue thanks to Hitched in France!

Where to start, Melanie has been nothing but helpful.
We have found and secured our ideal venue and Melanie has been on hand for any other questions even following the securing of our venue. Thank you so much!

A wedding in France

Fantastic service. We felt overwhelmed when deciding on location and venue and wedding entertainment in France and didn’t know where to look. We came across hitched in France and all our worries disappeared! Melanie and the team are incredibly helpful and recommend the best and most suitable places for you based on a list of requirements. Couldn’t have booked a venue without her help!
Many thanks

Found the perfect venue

We liaised with Melanie, who found us a range of venues to our exact taste and the budget to the point where it was hard to narrow it down. Nonetheless, we managed and have chosen the perfect venue for what we desire. Cannot recommend enough :)

Hitched in France

We've worked with Hitched in France now for 2 years and have had nothing but superb liaisons with Melanie, truly wonderful clients and some absolutely fabulous weddings as a result of our connection with Hitched in France. If you're looking to get married in France and are rather overwhelmed at where to begin, do please consider Hitched in France.

Hassle free!

Fantastic service - Melanie put us in touch with multiple photographers in the region in our price range. Despite still learning, my French is poor at best so it was a great weight off my shoulders being given contacts for the area without having to navigate french websites. Thank you so much!

Found us a wonderful chateau

The team at HIF helped us to find the perfect chateau in Normandy for our wedding and put them straight in touch with us. They have also given us lots of tips and helped us out along the way! We are very grateful and can really recommend the site!

Great help!

The team at Hitched in France were a great help to us in finding our band  for our outdoor wedding. They are very quick in replying, and clearly have and maintain good relationships with their vendors. I would certainly recommend them when planning your wedding in France.

Accurate support for couples she is a great professional.
Thank you very much Mélanie.

Fantastic service

Hitched in France has absolutely everything you could need to plan your wedding in France. For a non-French speaking individual without a planner, their friendly, knowledgable and attentive staff were invaluable.

Quality, quick and reliable!

Melanie was extremely quick at getting back to me following my request for a celebrant for our wedding in the Toulouse area. She put me in touch with someone and we arranged a call a few days later. He was perfect, very professional and personable! I would definitely recommend Melanie & Hitched in France, they've been a huge help!


When I got engaged I thought I wanted to plan everything from scratch myself but the number of options is vast and I quickly felt overwhelmed. Melanie at Hitched In France, quickly responded to my initial enquiry and contacted all of the venues we had expressed interest in. She provided costs and information on what the venue offered. It was an invaluable starting point in our wedding journey and although I continued with my own research, all the the options we shortlisted and the venue we eventually booked was provided by Hitched In France. Thank you again Melanie for all your help!

Great, personal service

My partner and I were looking for a mobile cocktail bar at our wedding in the South of France . As it is a boutique request, it was naturally hard to find suppliers online and on the other side of the world. Hitched in France found someone who got in touch with us. Although we didn't end up using their service, I would highly recommend using Hitched in France for any queries. I was actually surprised by the level of personalised service! Keep up the great work .

Super helpful for destination weddings!

Melanie has been an amazing helping source our dream venue for a wedding in France. We were sent a lot of information quickly and were put in touch with relevant suppliers immediately after we liked a few options.

I could not recommend using this site enough!!

Château in the Charente.

If I could bottle the atmosphere at this charming Château and sell it I would be a wealthy woman. My daughter had the wedding of her dreams here, everything from the Château to the church, to the wedding barn and pool area and the outside courtyard bar were to die for. I would say that if you are a little nervous about a wedding abroad then look at this venue....the owners settle your worries with their calm can do attitude, the companies they work with are excellent and professional. I believe this venue will be booking up fast now they are up and running as a spectacular wedding venue, so book soon or you may just be disappointed. It is a perfect location for small or large weddings and I promise you will not regret booking here.

The perfect DJ for our wedding

We just wanted to say a huge thanks for organizing Happy Daze DJ for our wedding. We all had a blast and the music was perfect. They even managed to play a random, last minute request for a South African song called "Impi", which the "in-laws" were very excited about! We wouldn't hesitate to recommend your services (and theirs) to other couples!

Thanks again,
Amanda & Hadley

Thank-you "When in Roam"

We cannot begin to thank you for your amazing performance during our wedding. We are so incredibly elated that we chose to work with you and your band - every single moment was absolutely as we'd hoped, even better and you all truly outdid yourselves. From your warm welcome upon arrival, to your absolutely jaw-dropping performance before the ceremony, up to our first dance, every moment could not have been more spectacular and perfect. Yann and I are eager to get our video just so that we can listen more to you and your band. We are only sad that we weren't able to simply watch you guys perform our favorite songs. We hope we can cobble together a recording of Everywhere -we agree we like your version even better than Stevie Nicks'! And of course, our first dance was one of the most memorable and defining moments of our lives, and you guys absolutely exceeded what my wildest dreams could have been for those few minutes of pure happiness. It was the most perfect few hours, and as I said, I only wish we could have ignored our guests and focused more on the exceptional music you provided! Tons of people were asking where we found you, and all of our guests have mentioned you when they've talked about the wonderful time that they had. Of course we are so grateful for your quick thinking and great attitude during totally unexpected rain for those moments. You guys were super professional and nearly single handedly kept the party going and spirits up when we were all a bit panicky. I'm so sorry that we weren't able to give you a big hug good bye. We will honestly be listening to you for years and years to come - please send us any videos that you have or recordings that you took. We hope to see you perform again- perhaps in London sometime!

We really cannot thank you enough for being one of the highlights of an exceptional day - my absolute best memories all involve you and your stellar performance of the songs we'd selected, and we are so grateful for your awesome coordination and for pulling it off totally flawlessly.

You're incredible, and we send immense thanks!!!

Becca & Yann

Exactly what we needed

As an American couple living in the UK and getting married in France, Hitched in France has been nothing short of a lifesaver. While we didn't exclusively find our vendors here (although we are excited to work with our lovely quartet!), finding Hitched in France allowed us to feel it was actually possible to do. Melanie was incredibly helpful and friendly and even managed to locate a translator for us (not one of the suppliers listed!) which was an exceptional effort on their part. Have and will continue to recommend Hitched in France to anyone planning a wedding from abroad.

Incredibly helpful service with excellent suppliers

Hitched in France offer a fantastic service for anyone taking the plunge to get married in France. They have a huge array of great suppliers across the country and are extremely helpful if you have any questions. We booked the Funky Folk Band through them who were quite honestly, the best wedding band we've seen. Extremely talented bunch of musicians who on top of that, were very friendly and professional. We would recommend them to anyone who wants to have a night to remember. Thank you both!

Thank you!

We just wanted to say a big thank you for organising Happy Daze DJ for our wedding weekend - we had a fantastic time and the music was perfect!


Planning a wedding abroad can be quite daunting and we have not really known where to start, what a great find Hitched in France has been, Melanie has been great and put us in touch with a lovely photographer. Melanie has responded to emails super quickly with lots of detailed information for us to look through. We will absolutely 100% use Hitched in France again to book more suppliers for our wedding.

Beautiful music for our wedding celebration

Hitched in France organised a solo cellist who was absolutely fantastic at our wedding in the Dordogne and the music was so beautiful. I chose my own playlist from her repertoire and then also had a bespoke song which was individual to us! I couldn't have asked for more. She was so flexible and helpful and happy to move and change things as needed. Would completely recommend

An absolute delight

Melanie from Hitched in France had been such a pleasure to deal with. Right from the start she has been quick with all her correspondence, and so helpful in sending us different venue options in France and putting us in direct contact with them. We would highly recommend their services!

So friendly and efficient!

We have the pleasure of working with Melanie as we are a supplier for Hitched in France. Melanie is so friendly, polite and organised. Her response time to any emails and questions is phenomenal and we often receive emails back late at night or over the weekend as she is constantly working hard and so dedicated to every client. We look forward to many more opportunities to work with Hitched in France!

Absolute life savers!

Absolute life savers, very responsive and quick. Have made organising a wedding in a foreign country a breeze. Can not recommend highly enough.

Hitched in France

A really useful and informative source! We found our wedding venue thanks to Melanie’s help. If it wasn’t for this website I honestly don’t know where I would have even started to find a venue in France. I simply emailed Melanie with an idea of what we were looking for and she sent us back a really exstensive list of beautiful venues. So helpful, would highly recommend!

Great help

Melanie was a fantastic help while I was searching for a venue in France from the UK.
She recommended some beautiful venues and was always happy to help with any questions I had. She was quick to respond with any emails I sent across and always made sure I could contact her throughout the process.

Hitched In France makes your search so much easier

Melanie was very helpful to us in our search for a wedding venue. Although my fiance is French, we live in the US and it's daunting to plan an event from across the ocean. Melanie helped us locate and contact a handful of perfect venues based on our needs, and then left it up to us to decide what we liked best. Highly recommended!

SO helpful!!

I have been speaking with Melanie and Libby and they are both so lovely and really really helpful. Its really daunting when you first start planning a wedding abroad and they make it a lot easier! 100% recommend!

Great DJ for our wedding in Beynac

We are from the USA and had our wedding abroad in France. Happy Daze were very easy to communicate with and helped take some of the stress out of overseas planning. Our location was a bit tough to get to, but they managed to find the location, get everything set up, and be ready on time with no input or help needed from us. They played everything we asked for and were great with judging the room on when to play uptempo vs. downtempo. I would highly recommend Happy Daze DJ for your wedding in the Dordogne!

Massive help

Hitched in France has helped so much and really took the pressure off planning our wedding. Planning a wedding abroad can be so stressful as it’s difficult to find a venue and suppliers that come recommended. Melanie put me in touch with a long list of different suppliers with all different budgets and gave me lots of new ideas. I can’t imagine how difficult finding recommended suppliers would have been if I hadn’t come across this website.

Thank you to the Food truck team

THANK YOU to the Crazy Diamond Food Truck team for arranging the most incredible food for our Pool party which took place the day after our wedding. Divine burgers and moules and frites were served to our friends and family. They were a huge hit with all! The truck is also super pretty and looks great. I am so happy we found you! Amber and Mark xxx

Food truck and music bar review

The food truck and music bar was the perfect end to the most perfect wedding weekend! The day after our wedding we had the cocktails flowing, music pumping and the food was delicious. The team even stayed on from lunch right into the evening for us as our guests loved them so much. Would highly recommend!!


really great help, wouldn't be able to organise my wedding in France with them! very efficient, helpful, organised and friendly! highly recommend them!

Great service

I have been really pleased with the help Melanie and the team at hitched in France have been, they have been there to give advice along the way and I always get a speedy response!


My partner and I are planning a wedding at a friend's castle in the south of France all the way from our own home in Canada. We were understandably anxious about this undertaking until we found this site!! The communication with Melanie and Libby has been fantastic, fast, and so helpful. Likewise, we are thrilled with the vendors we have booked through them (florist, DJ, celebrant, and videographer), and are eager to see everything come together at our wedding next August. Can't recommend this site enough!

Very Helpful

Melanie was extremely quick in responding and very helpful in our search for a venue

Lovely, informative and impartial guidance if you’re looking to get married in France!

Melanie was a wealth of knowledge and experience - and so lovely to boot. She helped us identify some incredible locations and put together a guidance budget to get us started. Highly recommend if you’re considering getting married in the South of France.

Super Duper Help

Recieved soo much help and lots of useful contacts. Managed to book a Videographer through Hitched In France, brilliant service and wonderful staff to work with!!!

Great Service & Awesome Band!

Thoroughly recommend Hitched in France. We hired The Combinations for our wedding and they blew us away. A professional and accomodating band, they were a highlight of our day for sure.

Essential for wedding planning in South West of France

Melaine, Libby and the team at hitched in France have been fantastic, so so helpful in helping source the best suppliers for me for planning my wedding. I would highly recommend them as they have full knowledge in all areas of the wedding and excellent reliable contacts.

Brilliant Service

The service at Hitched in France has been absolutely brilliant. From helping us with finding our perfect venue to getting quotes for services on the day. We are still in contact with Melanie who in particular has been great throughout our planning process. We would highly recommend them to anyone!

Thank-you Happy Daze DJ

Thanks to Libby for organising Happy Daze DJ to play at our wedding in August. They were absolutely perfect - from managing the background music during the wedding breakfast to keeping the dancefloor jumping right up until our last dance. We couldn't have asked for more!

Brilliant work!

From the moment of expressing interest in our venue to securing the venue and organising all the additional bits and bobs, the staff at Hitched in France have been amazing. Melanie in particular was always swift in response to our emails providing us with credible contacts and sources for all the relevant things (food trucks, marquee hire etc) we required. Both professional and very friendly we highly recommend the services of Hitched in France. A pleasure to liaise with.

So friendly and helpful in helping us find the perfect venue

Melanie went above and beyond in helping us source the ideal venue for our wedding in south west France. She took budget and style considerations in mind and came back with a multitude of great options. She made introductions to owners and generally made the whole process easy. Thank you!

Highly recommend

Melanie helped us to find a venue for our wedding in France and she was fantastic. She provided us with thorough and useful information, replied to emails quickly and helped us to liaise with venue owners. Overall a very good experience!


Fantastic to work with - great venue options and support.

Smile Fish Duo wedding music

We asked Smile Fish Duo to play music during our ceremony and during the canapes at our Chateau wedding.  And we are so glad we did! They were absolutely wonderful! They were very professional and replied very quickly to all of our emails. We also skyped because we were living in different countries. They provided us with some audio recordings and a list of songs they were able to play for us. We also had one or two specific song requests which we sent to the band in advance and they practiced specifically for us. They were so flexible and accommodating. I could not recommend them enough. Such an approachable and lovely couple. They really made our day special and their music sounded amazing both live and on all of our wedding videos! Fantastic!

Hitched in France

We used Hitched in France to help us organise catering for our wedding. Beki was fantastic and made the whole process much easier. Beki was alway quick to respond to any queries we had and found us a fantastic caterer, making all the communication really straightforward.

Thanks for everything Beki!
