Destination Weddings at All Saints' Marseille...
Many couples consider holding a wedding in a unique place as an exciting option. A destination wedding means the couple and their family and friends go on a mini-vacation, a pilgrimage almost, and hold their wedding in an exciting, adventurous (well not too adventurous) but beautiful and romantic place. There are lots of images of weddings on sandy beaches in the Canary Islands or the Caribbean (although sandy beaches are difficult to manage in the rain and when there are frisbee-throwers and surfboard competitions nearby).
The French Riviera is another exciting possibility and there are several Church of England churches all along the Riviera as part of the Diocese in Europe's Archdeanery of France. We even have a social group called ARC (Anglican Riviera Churches). One of our most beautiful worship sites is Holy Trinity, Nice. What a gorgeously grand and spiritual place. There is also a modern lovely church in Cannes.
If you are considering a destination wedding and want to be married, in English or with French assist, in a holy place, a sacred place within the setting of a worshipping Church of England community, we would like to welcome you and pray with your family and friends at All Saints' Marseille. Marseille is France's second city and sits on the Mediterranean.
The All Saints' Church building was built in 1904 and has a lovely late Victorian feel with gothic stained glass and a high vaulted lofty wooden beamed ceiling. One of our advantages is that we are a pocket-sized building which seats about 65 people comfortably, so if your wedding group is small they will not be lost in a barn sized building. Our church was intentionally built near the Old Port area in order to conduct missions to seafarers and English speaking tourists – still our main ministries. The Old Port (Vieux Port) is now the primary tourist destination of Marseille along with our beaches, so that means our church is close to the main hotels and restaurants. And we are a short taxi ride from the international airport and… the cruise port! Both MSC and Costa cruises sail out of Marseille!

All Saints' has a bilingual vibrant international congregation and most of the time a resident priest. We also have a small limited music resource of a cellist, pianist and flautist.
Of course there are fees for use of the building and to engage the music team. If you are interested, please make contact with our chaplaincy office several months ahead of the event at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit our webpage http://www.anglican-marseille.org or our Facebook page at "All Saints' Anglican Church, 4, Rue de Belloi 13006 Marseille".
All God's blessing and peace.
