Cathy & Patrick’s Intimate December Wedding

Cathy and Patrick came to WeddingLight Events to help them plan a beautiful intimate ceremony in one of the most romantic and beautiful cities in the world.

The Brisbane based couple knew from the very beginning that they wanted to have their ceremony in Paris – The City of Lights. They privatised a gorgeous Parisian monument,  a stunning chapel, for their intimate ceremony with their two sons and closest friends and family by their side. Cathy spent the morning with her bridal party in her lovely apartment in the chic 7th arrondissement of Paris getting pampered by our favorite hair and makeup duo, Fred and Muriel. The bride wore an elegant long-sleeved dress in white crocheted lace with a french twist for the ceremony and held a bouquet of bright white roses with bold emerald green leaves.

The chapel ceremony was officiated by one of our friendly English-speaking officiants, Igor, who gave a touching speech and provided them with a beautiful certificate at the end. Following the ceremony, the guests along with the bride and groom went on a Paris photo tour with our talented Paris photographer, Olivier Lalin of WeddingLight Photography. Making their way around the city, they shot photos on the L’île Saint-Louis, Musée du Louvre, Tuileries Gardens, the Eiffel Tower and more stunning Paris photography locations! Afterwards, the group took a pause at one of Paris’ chic hotel bars before heading over to an infamous restaurant for dinner that holds one of the best views in Paris that includes, of course, the iconic Eiffel Tower. 

Cathy and Patrick were such a wonderful couple to work with and we were more than happy to help them create such special memories here in Paris during this holiday season. The family spent their Christmas in their rue Saint Dominique apartment and then flew to Italy for the remainder of the honeymoon trip.

Bethany & Brendon married at the chapel Expiatoire in Paris

Bethany and Brandon are on their way to Malaga for their honeymoon this morning! Yes I am jealous, a little bit of Spain would do very nicely at the moment.They married at the chapel Expiatoire in Paris a couple of days back. Our WeddingLight photographer sent us some of the photos of their elopement just now and I couldn’t help rushing to the blog for a little update on our latest Parisian elopement!
We had been planning their big day in Paris for a little while now. Bethany and Brendon met up three years ago in Louisiana where they grew up while they were vacationing and YES fall in love! They wanted something intimate to seal their union and decided to elope to Paris. They will be having a big bash when they return to Colorado where they now live but their wedding day was going to be just for the two of them. Bethany fall in love with the chapel Expiatoire; beautiful neo classic building in the 8th arr. of Paris. They had private dining at the “La Perouse” restaurant in the latin quarter and celebrated the evening with some pink Veuve Clicquot champagne, one of my favorite! Gorgeous photography from Olivier, beautiful day, not a drop of rain in sight. I wish them both a sweet and happy life together. Cheers to our wedding couple of the week!

I have to say we have had a fantastic wedding season at WeddingLight Events. Kids are back to school, fall in Paris is to die for, colors are changing fast and the light is ever so nice on your skin. The temperature has dropped a bit, sure but we do live in the most wonderful city on earth. Our clients have been ever so sweet. We have been blessed to organize elopements and weddings for clients flying from destinations such as the U.S, Australia, New Zealand, Russia, Norway to name a few. We are in the middle of fine tuning an elopement in October for a couple flying from NYC. A beautiful wedding coming along in November and another one for christmas. We do love what we do and it is the most amazing feeling to share our clients happiness on one of the most beautiful day of their life.
