Classic Paris Elopement

We had the great pleasure to plan the wedding of Liza and Ira in Paris a few days back. It was lovely to spend the day with them both, wonderful couple! We are so blessed to have such nice clients who trust us with organizing their elopement in the city of light. Enjoy a few of the photographs from their very special day.

Dearest Helene – I finally had a few moments to sit quietly and go through Olivier’s photos today, and I have to say I was completely moved. I don’t know if he sent you everything, but I am happy to send you the link if he has not sent them through to you. Somehow he captured the essence of how Ira and I feel for each other while including every special request I made including amazing architecture and beautiful imagery.

I knew he would be a great photographer, which is how I made the decision to go with him and WLE, but I really wanted to let you know that your whole team – the hair, the makeup, the flowers, and your recommendation of venue for the vows, your own extreme attention to detail – everything about this experience was beyond compare – I cannot recommend you highly enough to other brides. You went above and beyond through all the crazy that was our lives , helped me through the trauma of the unexpected death of my brother-in-law, and the stress and worry of planning this experience from an ocean away. In the end, it turned out more special then I ever imagined possible – thank goodness for the one day of sun!! The photo’s of Ira as he said his vows to me brought tears back all over again. The great photos of us laughing and truly enjoying the city, the experience, and each other, are priceless. For everything you and Olivier did for us – Merci x1,000,000,000!

Sasha & Robb’s Stunning Church Wedding in Paris

Sasha and Robb contacted us a few weeks ago in hopes of eloping to Paris. They had originally tried to plan everything themselves, but came into some trouble and decided we could best assist them in making their special day a reality. With only a week to plan and book everyone, we managed to create something truly memorable for them.

Sasha and Robb stayed in an incredible suite at the luxurious Four Seasons George V on avenue George V. Our charming hair and makeup duo, Fred and Muriel were called in for Sasha’s elegant wedding day look, which also included  a custom designed gown by a talented Russian designer.  The lovely couple then married at an incredible church by the Seine river in Paris’ chic 7th arrondissement. Following their beautiful ceremony, they drove around in a stunning Bentley S2 to take some photographs with our wonderful photographer, Olivier Lalin of WeddingLight Paris.

It was an absolute pleasure helping Sasha and Robb with their elopement and we wish them all the best in their new life together as one!

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.
