Why Castle Key

Your passion. Your romance. Your wedding. Our specialty.

We do one thing: weddings in fairy tale castles in France’s Loire Valley—the world’s destination custom made for eternal nuptials! We do it better than anyone because it is all we do.

We plan every minute with precision to ensure scheduling, timing, flexibility, budget control, and so much more. Castle Key maps locations and schedules for you and your guests for each step of your journey—details you see and details that go unnoticed with a well-executed plan where every participant has a role to play in this, the grandest of performances.

All you have to do is enjoy without a worry about what to do next or where to go, so you are not exhausted and frazzled—but relaxed and ready for your important moments so all you remember is the romance, passion, and joy of sharing this day with loved ones.

Destination weddings are no more challenging, and often no more expensive, than weddings at home. Castle Key brings the additional benefit of deep and long-term relationships with local partners who can provide every service desired—everything and anything you could imagine and even what you may not have imagined—often obtaining discounts from our long-term partners. We represent the difference between planning a huge international trip on your own and guessing and hoping that you have made the right decisions, or having someone locally on the ground with strong relationships with area venues and professionals taking care of everything for you.

Castle Key accommodates wedding parties of all sizes, styles, budgets, and themes including classical, modern, medieval, organic, rock ‘n’ roll, jazz, or even gypsy! We advise you on the practicality of events and venues to ensure you are not overbooked and frantic, or under-booked and missing out on special moments. Our packages include a detailed listing of all included and additional amenities. There are no surprises.

We are with you for wedding theme inspirations, design, travel arrangements, accommodations, transportation, restaurants, catering, decorations, flowers, rehearsals and choreography, lighting, tours, language translations, legal issues and paperwork (for both France and your home country, including same-sex marriages), local customs, insurance, special requests, budget control; and contingencies such as weather, traffic, and tardy or lost guests, just to name a few! We work with professionals you select such as photographers, musicians, hair and make-up stylists, formal wear, florists—whatever is needed to make this day unforgettable because all that matters is you and your guests—and the feeling of this moment.

Everything begins with your free initial one-hour consultation. In a journey of seemingly endless options, we’ll help you select the right events, venues and moments for you. We’re with you at every step including on your wedding day—present but invisible because the day is yours and because the plan is already in place.

Your only memory—the happiness, the emotions, the personalized services, the beauty, the elegance, the romance, and the joy of your big day! At a price that you can afford.
