It was especially a joy to meet and plan the elopement of Kristine and Gawah this summer. Our team made the dream come through for the energetic couple with the best details from the venue, flowers, hair and make up to the luxurious vintage cream Citroen – a french classic that made the day even more spectacular as the get away car!

We started the day at with a balcony room (view of the Arc de Triomphe!) at their hotel where we  prepped and pampered  the bride with hair and make up, then slipped into her dress with the help of her mom and sister.  And of course there was champagne in hand!

Later the couple was joined by their closest family and friends for a regal ceremony at La Maison de Centralian.


The stunning photos were shot by Claire Morris and videography by Zen Film Works to follow.

Congratulations to the lovely and funny couple! Looking forward to having you back on your next visit (anniversary trip anyone?!)

So excited to be sharing this one!

We’re always happy to see our professional English-speaking vendors do their most for our couples who come from so far for this one big day!  This year, as we’re in full wedding season – mouth drop for the September! – we’ve decided to round-up a few of the overwhelming trends we’re seeing.

Like attracts like, right?  Well, I think a big part of my pull for our couples is that I’m a die-hard foodie that loves to travel! I can tell you about the best new restaurant, coffee shop, bar and all the Michelin stared ones as well as where’s the best place to visit now in Europe. So we always end up having Wedding-cations plans as we like to call them, a wedding and a euro-gastro vacation itinerary that’s so unique and tested by yours truly.

The men are showing much love to the cars of yesteryear with the vintage Jaguars and Citroen. 80% of the cars booked with us this year were bigger vintage wedding cars. They add a special elegance and history to the storytelling of your day.

sleek flow wedding dresses that we’re for the most part – hand-made or designed by many of the brides themselves. Talk about attention to detail.

So back by popular demand this year, are peonies! But we’re also getting down with the David Austin roses
ladies and gents. Our recent design of wrapping the terrace of the Shangri la hotel Paris had both kinds and boy was it glam!

Well, sort of interesting how those “soft” lingerie shots we’ve been taking of our brides are getting more and more in demand. A lot of is has to do with the fact that we only create an environment where the bride feels safe and beautiful – nothing cheesy or over the line. everything is 100 % Parisian chic.

Chapelle Expiatoire: Elegant French Wedding

What a meeting of hearts we’ve had at our recent wedding in Paris at the venue Chapelle Expiatoire planned by Elope in Paris and shot by Audrey from Le Secret D’Audrey. The gorgeous American couple ventured from Chicago to celebrate their love in the French capital with us.
Starting at the luxurious Shangri-La hotel – where we took the time to add many intricate details for the preparation shoot right up the intimate dinner back at the top chef restaurant L’Abeille.

The theme we created had much to do with the French heritage of one of the brides. So it was no surprise that we choose the Chapelle Expiatoire for its magnificent beauty but for its strong ties with Versailles and Marie Antoinette. Our violinist accompanied the ceremony with music in Cannon D and some instrumental from the Sophia Coppola Marie Antoinette Film.

The Shangri La hotel a five-star hotel in the prestigious 16th neighbourhood, is itself is also steeped in french culture having belonged to the Bonaparte family. This is one of the handful hotels where you can have an unblocked view of the Eiffel Tower. However, we also choose to use the beautiful seasonal gardens for the start of our photo session that then led us to Ile Saint Louis, The Seine River, and through the Tuileries garden. 


“Simplicity is the ultimate form of sophistication” 
…and we decided to keep things very clean and minimalist with touches of blush and peach. 
 All to blending well with the custom-made dress.




How divine are these Manolo Blahnik blue velvet Heels?

Lots of love to these two women from our team – what pleasure to have planned our first same-sex marriage here in Paris in such high style and in such awesome energy! 
So much fun and laughs were had on a memorable day!
Bisous xoxo
