On Sunday 20th August, we hope you will be able to join us for a relaxed lunch at le Chais d’Epinay, the same location as the reception, so that we can enjoy your company for longer! We will be gathering around midday.
As we are getting married in a small village and there is no public transport, the best way to travel around between locations is by car.
The nearest airport is Nantes Atlantique. There are regular easyjet flights from London Gatwick. The airport is 20 minutes away from the location of the ceremony and 15 minutes from the reception. There is a shuttle into the center of Nantes from the airport.
The nearest train station is Gare de Nantes, In the center of town. It is about 30 minutes away from the location of the ceremony and 20 minutes from the reception by car.
There are several car hire services available at the airport and the train station including :
There are a number of rooms and gîtes available here and it is a 5 minute walk from the reception. See here for more information.
There are several options available on Air BnB for accommodation. Have a look here and search ‘Nantes’ or ‘Le Bignon’.
It will be possible to camp on the site of the reception. If you would like to camp, please contact us directly as there is a limited amount of space.
For those of you wishing to make a proper holiday out of your visit to France, here is some information about some of the great things to local area has to offer.
Nantes and the surrounding area has some amazing local specialities. Try the famous Breton savory crepes in any of the creperies in the old town of Nantes. Also take advantage of being by the sea and taste the amazing fresh seafood with Nantes own beurre blanc sauce. If you’re in the mood for something sweet, try the caramel beurre salé with the famous fleur de sel from Noirmoutier or Guerande. You should also seek out Muscadet wine sur Lie and try some of the excellent local Breton cidre. Have a look here for more information on where and what to eat.
Nantes is a really vibrant city and there is lots to see. We particularly recommend Les Machines de l’île, where you can see the famous 40 foot wooden elephant walking around. See here for more information. The beautiful Château des Ducs de Bretagne is also worth a visit followed by a beer (obviously!) in the old quartier of Nantes. See here for information.
There are some beautiful places to visit along the atlantic coast line. If you have hired a car take a drive to the charming village of Pornic or take a walk along the beach at Noirmoutier.
We don't need you to bring us gifts – we know plane tickets are expensive and your presence at the wedding is enough! If you really want to give us something, a contribution to our future life together would be lovely. There will be a box at the wedding for this!
Dress code: Suits and Dresses. Don't forget that Nantes is close to Brittany and the weather can be unpredictable! Something warm for the evening would be a good idea!
Please RSVP before friday the 19th of May 2017
I can't wait!
No! I can't come...
