Ceremony Script

Notre-Dame Paris, Vow Renewal

Your English-speaking officiant conducts a short, intimate ceremony, written especially to recognise your celebration (elopement, wedding or vow renewal) and reflect the romance of Paris.

“We had a wedding that was more beautiful than we’d even dreamed would be possible.” - Emma & Nick, Jun 2018

Personal Vows

Personal Vows in Paris

To make it special, we encourage you to write your own personal vows for the ceremony. Your Planner can even help you with great tips and examples.

Souvenir Certificate

Signing the wedding certificate in Notre-Dame Paris.

You take away a beautiful souvenir certificate as a memento of the day.

Symbolic Ceremony

Elopement in Notre-Dame gardens, Paris

It’s important that you understand our ceremonies are symbolic, not legally recognised - see FAQ.  From a legal point of view you should have a civil registration in your own country in addition to your real wedding in Paris. Couples say how little difference it makes to the sense of occasion that the wedding and paperwork are done separately.

Couples Paris Photo-Tour

Following your ceremony you're taken on an amazing chauffeur driven photo-tour which lasts around 2 hours.

Luxury Car & Chauffeur

Your friendly English-speaking chauffeur collects you from your central Paris hotel or apartment in a luxury Mercedes car to escort you to your ceremony. At the end of your photo-tour you are dropped-off at a central Paris location of your choice.

Customer Review
Emma & Nick - Jun 2018

"To say that things went flawlessly would be an understatement."

Claire and her team arranged our venue, cars, flowers, hair, make-up, photographer, even musicians to play on the day, and to say that things went flawlessly would be an understatement.

We had a wedding that was more beautiful than we’d even dreamed would be possible, in large part due to the professionalism and helpfulness of our wedding team.

If you’re thinking about getting married in Paris, look no further as they will take all of the stress out of the day and deliver you an experience that will live in the heart and the memory forever.
