When it comes to planning an elopement in Paris, one major aspect is choosing a location for the ceremony. Paris is truly the most beautiful city in the world, and narrowing down a location can be overwhelming not to mention finding within your budget. Luckily, the City of Love is home to dozens of parks that are not only gorgeous, but also completely free. Whether you envision a green and whimsical backdrop while you say « I Do » or the classic Eiffel Tower view, Paris has everything.
I’ve compiled a list of some of my favorite Parisian spots that are absolutely perfect for a romantic elopement.
The Paris Fashion Museum is the perfect location for an elegant wedding ceremony. This is a 5 minute drive from the Eiffel Tower. Jason and Levie tied the knot here and the photos are gorgeous.
This spot is excellent for a classic Parisian ceremony. The park is green and the Eiffel Tower will be eye-catching in all of your photographs. Everyone back home will know you eloped to Paris at the first glance. Paolo and April were married here and you simply must check out the photos and video.
Square Jean XXIII:
This park is a true gem of Paris. Located right behind the Notre Dame Cathedral, you can’t deny the romance of being married by this iconic landmark. Steve and Shelby were married here and the architecture of the cathedral and the trees of the park look lovely.
Parc Monceau is located in the 17th arrondissement of Paris and is a favorite park of Parisian locals. This location is perfect for a garden vision and an authenticity that can’t be beat. Dennis and Roxanne held their ceremony here and the photos turned out just perfectly.
Gardens of the Palais Royal:
This park is located in the 1st arrondissement of Paris and is simply stunning. Enclosed in a courtyard, there is a fountain, beautiful green trees, flowers, and interesting columns that make for great pictures. Elyse and Trent were married here and the park was a beautiful backdrop for their ceremony photos.
