There’s been a lot going on the blog about outdoor weddings in Paris, and this is one of our top ones. Today we want to share the romantic paris photos one of our recent elopement couples, Fatima and Gary. This Seine River boat wedding was nothing short of magical!

The boat was completely privatized with a 5 course dinner by their very own chef as they later sailed under the Parisian starlit sky; passing Musee D’Orsay, The Eiffel Tower, Jardin des Tuileries…

Captured by the super talented Claire Morris here in Paris. Her breathtaking images truly capture much of the sentiment of the wedding theme of regal and romantic. Many thanks for this big beautiful peonies and roses bouquet by Estelle, that went perfectly with the red bottom of the bride’s Christian Loubotin heels.

Oh if the gold walls of the Shangri-La hotel could talk, they’d probably whisper about how amazing the bride looked in this gorgeous lace fitting gown <3

Congratulations again to the lucky couple! Fatima and Gary exude so much love and romance don’t they?

On a hill a top Paris – we escaped to a magical place lush with greenery and a lake for this fun, and unconventional elopement of Gillian and Mark.

The couple came from Sydney after months of us communicating; emailing and skyping. I am so honored to meet such awesome souls – these two were just bursting with a warm electric energy.  The plan was to do something simple, chic and fun. And I think as these photos from talented photographer Katie Mitchell will show that we did just that!

This Pinterest ready style elopement has bits of French style with all the iconic Parisian backdrops, but certainly a massive dose of individuality too.

The couple was also joined by a few close friends during their romantic ceremony.

Many thanks to the couple for such a pleasure of planning a splendid (secret) dreamy Parisian elopement.

Lots of hugs!

But seriously in the interest of saving you not only money but stress-free days, hiring a professional means having peace of mind. Someone who has the know how and enthusiasm to logistically plan out your vendor communications, payments follow ups and schedule everything seamlessly, for an enjoyable and memorable day.   

I would also add that the best way to have the wedding of your dreams – is to hire the planner who takes the time to connect with you. Outside of packages and creating weddings for the past 5 years – we’ve seen our happiest couples and families are the ones where we know your likes and preferences beyond the predesigned proposal, so much so that we can think on the fly to resolve any unforeseen issues that may arise.

When I first met Lisa and Chris, it was clear that they were a truly unique couple. They had decided to elope to Paris, with their family for a chic yet intimate dream wedding. The romantic blush theme came together over the months, and ended up being what I like to call ‘a perfect Martha Stewart magazine type spread’ – with a  heavy fashion focus on the details – Parisian Style.

Huge thanks to the Australian couple for trusting Elope in Paris with their wedding planning needs. We are so grateful to have such wonderful clients. And having the children present made it all the more special.

On the day-of, everything came together so smoothly from the hair and make up by Modern Beauties, Flowers by Les Herbes de Paris,  to the photography of one of the best English wedding photographers in Paris – Audrey.   Boudoir with the most delicate French lingerie, Ceremony, Dinner to Parisian Streets we covered it all in pretty blush fashion.

In recent years I’ve become so content to see that many families are more accepting of eloping with family, thus turning the ceremony into a small intimate wedding.

Full of so much love and joy!

I seriously had the best day with their American Church wedding, one of our favorite religious ceremony venues.

Thanks again to all the vendors and a big hug to the family.

Love always, xx.
