Bonjour and welcome to France. You are about to get married in France, so how about the legal sides of things? Well, in order to get legally married in France, you need to prove residency for 40 days in a row in the city in which you want to get married. Also, the only person who can legally marry you in France is the mayor of the city in which you will have proven residency. Not only that, but you need also to make sure that the mayor of that city, that his agenda, fits yours. And last but not least, all the documents need to be written and made in French.
So, you need to have a good bilingual lawyer specialized in weddings. As you can see, that can take a lot of money and a lot of time. So, what 99 percent of the couples do is this. They get married legally in their own country, they do all the paperwork in their own country and then they come to Paris, to France to do the symbolic ceremony of their dream.
Whether it’s here in Paris or the French Riviera or in the French Alps, you can create your tailor-made ceremony that has only a symbolic value and it’s exactly what we create here at Love Gracefully—tailor-made ceremony just made for you in the location that you would have chosen. So, we are looking to hear from you, whether it’s by email, telephone or Skype. Merci. Au revoir.
