Getting Married at Trepart

To tie the knot here at Trepart is very simple, don't worry about the residency laws, you can still have a symbolic or religious ceremony here,  provided you have had a civil ceremony in the United Kingdom first, and can provide the relevant documentation to the local Mairie (mayor) in St. Pierre de Cole. 

Please confirm your personal situation and all of the information given on the site with your local authority, as laws and regulations can change regularly.


Here is the River Cole which runs through the gardens, can you hear the water running over the weir, it's beautiful and very therapeutic! 

What a wonderful place for photos with a glass of bubbly in hand while your guests enjoy their bubbles on the terrace.


We offer a superior service with a bi-lingual wedding planner, let us help you perfect your day.
