Apart from a few garden benches, there is no furniture supplied by the chateau, most of what you see during your site visit is taken away. Your caterer will be best placed to advise on high tables for the cocktail, chairs for the ceremony and reception materials for the dinner. However, do bear in mind that if you use the same chairs for the ceremony and dinner, you will need to factor in additional staff to move them.
We recommend adding lounge furniture to the inside party area, as it is important to keep people inside after dinner and make this area the focal point of the party. Without it guests are more likely to wander back outside so the party becomes split up and the overall ambiance suffers. For the same reason, we always recommend have the bar in the same area as the dance floor.
