Chateau de Lamazere: a French-English marriage celebration

A “marriage” of two cultures and the celebration of all that’s good from French and English traditions.

After the blessing at Lamazere chapel (for which approval had to be sought from the Bishop of Toulouse), everyone gathers in the grounds of Chateau de Lamazere before ascending to the “Terrace” Garden Terrace on the 1er Etage, for a night of festivities. Off which is the “Grand Salon”, originally a fortification room for the local Cathars to hide from persecution from the Pope Innocent lll.

Within the Grand Salon are ancient stone steps leading up to a 20-meter lookout tower, with panoramic views of the surrounding countryside and the distant snow-capped Pyrenees.
