Vaux le Vicomte defines a baroque French chateau located in Maincy, and magnificent luxury wedding venue, close to Paris
A listed historical building, this prestigious chateau is the largest privately owned estate of its kind in France, and offers a glamorous and highly attractive setting for your luxury wedding celebrations.
Château Vaux le Vicomte is a 17th century castle, and a masterpiece of baroque architecture and design that lends itself beautifully to wonderful and very romantic weddings. Built for Nicolas Fouquet, Louis XIV’s Minister of Finances, it was a joint venture by renowned architect Louis le Vau, interior designer Charles le Brun, and acclaimed landscape designer André Le Nôtre, a team who would later work together on the Palace of Versailles.
Vaux le Vicomte Chateau was erected on a raised structure which is surrounded by an ornamental moat, giving the castle a magical air of mystery and romance. The French style gardens are outstanding, and as you experience their unique optical illusion, known as ‘anamorphosis abscondita’ you can see the full glory of each part as Le Nôtre intended. You will adore the sparkling fountains, and the confessional, an elegant and intimate area in the garden that is very special to brides and grooms.
Lavishly decorated interiors are a sumptuous masterpiece of beauty and elegance, filled with refined furnishings, a majestic fireplace, and fine tapestries. The spectacular Grand Salon culminates in a magnificent dome which soars to its full height at the central point of Vaux le Vicomte castle.
