Alison and Teddy’s Elopement in Paris

Alison & Teddy Elopement Paris

We would like to present you the elopement of Alison and Teddy, coming from New Orleans to Paris to celebrate their love in front of one of the most symbolic monument in Paris: the Eiffel Tower. Here is the story of their dream elopement in Paris…

The first contact with our team, DVV Events

Teddy contacted us through the blog because he wanted to make his wife’s dream come true. For his proposal, he knows Alison was so in love with Paris and the Eiffel Tower that he wanted to make it in front of the Eiffel Tower… But he did it in front of a small Eiffel Tower!

He decided to take her to Paris to elope in a very romantic trip to Paris. He needed our help to plan the perfect moment and to be the closest to the Eiffel Tower. We worked with him and then with Alison too to find the perfect place for their ceremony. The Eiffel Tower gardens were the best place to make it: they will be very close to the Eiffel Tower and we tried to find a place where we will be able to plan a ceremony with some privacy. As you may know, all the pictures you can see on Facebook or Instagram with the couple and the Eiffel Tower only, with no tourist, are taken very early in the morning, before 7 or 8 am!! As our Couple was coming from London and with a little bit of jet lag because of their trip from New Orleans, that option wasn’t possible of course. They decided to plan it between 5 and 6 pm and we found THE perfect place!

Their trip to Paris and the Elopement Day!

Alison and Teddy arrived the same day of the elopement by Eurostar from London. Alison wanted to take care of her own bouquet and the buttonhole of her husband (We love when the Couple decide to  do their own accessories, it becomes a very personalize wedding!) We had to plan a meeting for Alison’s hair but it was a Monday and as you may know, on Mondays, a lot of hairdressers are closed  in France but even more when it’s a public holiday day! Challenge accepted and Alison had her meeting, she was very happy with it!

We met with Teddy in front of the Eiffel Tower to choose the best place between the 2 places they had chosen.  We met also with Zoé, from Picturing Love, our lovely photographer <3 and we were all waiting for the bride to be who want to come with her friend. The moment was precious: Alison came with tears in her eyes while Teddy was making his best smile which said ” I am the most lucky man in the world”. Their happiness and love was so present that we all cried during the ceremony!!

After their ceremony, Zoé took them to a shooting near the Eiffel Tower and the Carrousel in front of the Trocadero. We made a reservation to the gorgeous Restaurant Monsieur Bleu with incredible views over the Eiffel Tower and the Seine… It was an incredible elopement for them but for us too!

Here are some words of Teddy after their elopement in Paris with DVV Events:

Ceremony Elopement Paris Wedding

3 reasons why you should get married in Paris…

Paris or not Paris… “Destination wedding” is one of the most important trend of the wedding market. The principle is simple: you decide to get married in another country only you both for an elopement or with your guests for a wedding. But where do you want to get married? There are so many countries, cities and places in the world where a wedding can be celebrated… However, as Parisian ambassadors, we think that Paris is the best place to get married for a destination wedding or an elopement. Here are the 3 reasons why you should get married in Paris, voilà!

Paris is romance

get married in Paris 3

As you know, Paris is called the City of Love for a good reason. Everything in the City inspires love. Couples coming from all around the world are planning their shooting, their engagement session (such as Flavie and Taro), their proposal, their elopement or their wedding in Paris because Paris is Love.

Paris is as romantic as in every movies and TV shows in where your favourite characters get married or just have a trip in the City. You can obviously get kissed and plan your ceremony in an outside place without a Parisian fixing a gaze on you!

In a park, all over the Seine, near the Eiffel Tower (even if it sounds cliché, the place is absolutely stunning!),… The City will show you why there is not another city which can be named “the City of Love” than Paris.

Paris is gastronomy

The French gastronomy is well-known all over the world. In Paris, a lot of “Chefs” are famous for their excellent food. A lot of caterer in Paris will propose you menus created by important Chefs in Paris so you can have the most delicious food for your wedding lunch or diner.

Who has never heard someone talking about those delicious French wines and Champagne? If you are a wine-lover, Paris is your place to get married. Your caterer will propose you the perfect wines and Champagne according to your menu of course.

Also, Paris is the pastry-land! 🙂 Croquembouche, fraisier, mille-feuille, tarte au citron meringuée,… are some of the big names of the very famous pastries. Your dessert will be the reflection of the Parisian gastronomy. Your guests will be amazed with the perfect pastry to end your wedding lunch/diner.get married in Paris

 

Paris is architecture

Thanks to its history, Paris has a gorgeous old-architecture. The buildings have a really particular Haussmann- architecture who was a very important prefect during the XIXth century in Paris. The Parisian buildings are well-know all over the world. You will be able to rent a private mansion for your ceremony or your wedding.

You will also enjoy the differents parks of the City where you can easily plan your ceremony. In France, the parks are public spaces so there will be no problem for you to plan a beautiful ceremony. However, you won’t be able to rent a part of the park for your ceremony. If you need music or sound during your ceremony, you will have to ask for an authorization (you will find more information in our ceremony in Paris’s article).

The iconic places of the City are also part of the wonderful architecture. The most iconic attractions such as the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre, the Arc de Triomphe, the district of Montmartre (one of the most romantic district in Paris, maybe the most romantic),… are famous all over the world. You can’t find another monument which will inspire you more romanticism and love. In addition to the most important monuments, you will also enjoy the romantic cafés and the “passages” which are small passageways between two streets. They are most of the time very intimate and romantic!

Paris is full of surprises… You will be spellbound with the Parisian wedding venues, outside places for your photoshoot and ceremony, its gastronomy,… You want to learn more about it?

Elopement

Your Elopement in Paris – Getting Married in Paris

ceremony in Paris 2

It’s official… You are getting married! But your dream wedding isn’t a wedding with guests, planning a big celebration and having diner with your guests… You just want to get married with your one-love, eyes in the eyes without any guests but only you two. How to do it? Is it possible to get married only you both? Of course it is… And we call it an elopementElopement in Paris.

A… what?

An elopement… What is exactly an elopement? It’s a wedding with only the bride and the groom. This new tendency of the wedding market is growing a lot since a few years. A lot of couple want to get married most of the time in another country or city without any guests, just both of them.

First of all, an elopement is maybe one of the most romantic way to get married. You are going to travel with your better-half to celebrate the love between you both. No guests, no big diner, no big wedding planning, just a celebration of your love and a lunch or a diner for you both, eyes in the eyes. It will be your own secret, your romantic getaway!

The elopement can be also a good idea if you don’t want to spend a lot of money in your wedding. You will be able to plan the wedding of your dream without spending 10 000-20 000€ or more, money you should have spent if you were planning a wedding with guests. For an elopement, we can say you will spend between 20 and 30% over what you will have to spend for a big wedding.

Maybe are you afraid telling to your close relations that they won’t be invited to your wedding because you are going to plan an elopement. You will have to explain them why you are planning an elopement instead of a big wedding. To make everyone happy, you can plan a post-wedding party to celebrate your wedding with your family and friends. It can be a good idea to balance an elopement and a party with your close family and relations for example, less bigger than a big wedding but as important as a celebration with your loved-ones.

Why chosing Paris for your elopement

The City of Love is one of the best places to plan your elopement. It is well-known that Paris is the City of the romanticism and love, a perfect place for your elopement.

We will have a lot of possibilities for your ceremony venue. You can select one of the incredible outside places such as parks and gardens: the Tuileries, the Luxembourg Park, the Buttes Chaumont Park and a lot more… They are perfect places for a green outside ceremony. All Parisian parks have a spot with intimity to plan your ceremony.

For an outside ceremony, the Seine docks can be a good place to have a spot with a lot of romanticism but also with great views over the City. There are also a lot of gorgeous bridges which can be very beautiful places even if you will have to be careful with the crowd. The Bir Hakheim is, for example, a bridge without cars and with a wonderful view over the Seine and the Eiffel Tower.

Then, Paris is full of wonderful and very famous monuments and places: the Eiffel Tower, the Louvres, the Champs-Elysees, the Concorde Place, the Trocadero,… All of these places are perfect places for a romantic and Parisian ceremony but you should be careful with the crowd, you don’t want them to ruin your intimate ceremony 😉 However, if you don’t want to deal with it, you can choose an outside place with an incredible view over your favorite place in Paris: what about a balcony with views over the Eiffel Tower?

You will have also the possibility to choose an inside place. Parisian architecture is amazing. Paris will offer you an intimate room in a private mansion or an hotel to celebrate a romantic ceremony. You can also rent a place with a balcony or a rooftop to have incredible views over the City of Love.

After your romantic ceremony, you can have lunch or diner at a restaurant in Paris. The gastronomy and wines/champagne are wonderful in France, so enjoy it for your elopement in Paris.

The perfect place for your ceremony in Paris

Your Ceremony in Paris

You are planning to get married in Paris. Here comes the moment to find the perfect place for your  ceremony  in Paris. You want a ceremony that looks like you, then it will be a symbolic ceremony… Yes but where to do it ? Are there laws about it ? Who’s gonna be your celebrant ?

engagement-photoshoot-dvvevents- getting married in paris 59

First of all, some information about the symbolic ceremony…

The symbolic ceremony consists in creating your own ceremony. You choose your texts, your ritual (or not if you don’t want one) and your speakers. The beauty of that kind of ceremony is that it is written by you and your closest relatives, the ceremony will give even more sincerity and emotion to words. The fact that you can choose your celebrant(s) and speakers is also a big advantage for your ceremony : a family’s member, a friend or a professional celebrant.

Your ceremony in Paris : what should you respect ?

ceremony in Paris 2

There are many of you who have been asking this important question : is it possible to get married in the most famous places in Paris ? The answer is… YES ! There are no laws which forbid to get married in Paris in a symbolic ceremony. Parks, Monuments, Gardens, … are public places, in France. For example, you can’t rent the Luxembourg Garden or the Seine docks for your wedding. What we offer to our clients is to choose a place in Paris which means something for them, which has a special meaning in their love story for example. Maybe your other half proposed to you at the foot of the Eiffel Tower or in a private room with an incredible view over the city and you would like a reminder of this gorgeous moment in your wedding ? Everything is possible, you can personalize as much as possible your ceremony, starting with the place.

Based on the place you have chosen, your ceremony will take place early morning or at the end of the day or even after lunch. The more your ceremony will be happening around some touristic’s places (the Eiffel Tower, the Sacred Heart, …) the more  it will be important to not get invaded by tourists, regarding the time of your ceremony😝

wedding in Paris 4

Although the places are public spaces, we ask for each ceremony an authorization form to the Paris City Hall and to the Police Prefecture. It is important to inform these two institutions because a big event can take place during your wedding ceremony in Paris which will ruin your ceremony and will bring the Police. To avoid any problem and make your ceremony a perfect and private moment, an authorization form is mandatory. Paris is divided into districts, do not hesitate to get your authorization from the City Hall of the district where your ceremony takes place. Also, a very important point, you should request that form to these two institutions at least three months before your wedding in Paris especially if you have more than 30 guests and need logistical material on the spot. Of course, we can help you in every request by writing and sending them ourselves.

ceremony in paris 4

If you are planning an elopement, it is possible to not ask for this authorization. However, we prefer to get it for each wedding or elopement in Paris for security measures, if you take the time to plan your wedding in the capital.

Your outside ceremony in Paris

You have a lot of choices for outside places. First of all, you have the most famous and symbolic places in Paris : the Eiffel Tower, the Trocadero, the district of Montmartre, the Notre-Dame Cathedral, … These spots receive a lot of tourists so be careful with the crowd the D-Day !

Paris has a lot of gorgeous parks and gardens to plan your ceremony. The most famous are the Tuileries Garden (across from the Pyramid of the Louvre), the Luxembourg Gardens but also the park of the Trocadero (across the Eiffel Tower) or even the Buttes Chaumont Park which will give you an incredible view over Paris with its little romantic chapel.

What about planning your ceremony near the Seine ? The docks Seine offer you wonderful spots and for some of them very intimate ones to get married. Choose the district you like… For example, the docks Seine facing the Notre Dame Cathedral. And what about planning your ceremony in Paris on a boat along the Seine ?

engagement-photoshoot-dvvevents- getting married in paris 57

You also have the possibility to celebrate your ceremony in a street or a passage to give it a street side ! Paris has a lot of very typical Parisian-style streets but also a lot of original streets. Enjoy the sweetness of a Parisian street to plan your ceremony …. Here some examples…

Your inside ceremony in Paris

Several reasons for an inside ceremony : you have a lot of guests, you are charmed by the beauty of the Parisian architecture, you are coming in December and you are afraid of the cold (and I understand you so much brrrrrr !), …

The main goal is to find the perfect place. Paris owns a lot of venues with rooms which can host your ceremony : A Parisian hotel, a room in a private mansion, private mansions, lofts, …

If you want to have a big view over the City, you can also rent a rooftop to plan your ceremony and/or wedding in Paris. You will enjoy the gorgeous view over the City of Lights by day and night ! What about celebrating your wedding at nightfall with the whole city being illuminated ?
