Notre Dame Cathedral: top rated location for a romantic Paris elopement
Notre-Dame cathedral, Paris most treasured religious building, is an amazing setting to hold your elopement. Built in the 15th century, it holds a high level of authenticity and solidity. A great symbol to shelter your wedding vows. The Cathedral has majestic shapes and just makes a stunningly romantic background for your love commitment. Plus, because you are choosing this kind of celebration and your family might not be so happy about it, the Cathedral will guarantee that you get amazing photo memories capturing the uniqueness of this moment to share with them afterwards.
The church is a cherished location for our couples wishing to elope. But even with over 300 wedding vows celebrated, each celebration is a brand new one. Born in this capital city, we have, over the years, selected the best spots to give you the most of the church, while allowing you to dive into an intimate celebration in Paris. You could choose to have your ceremony set in the garden at the rear of the building (a great spot early in the morning or late afternoon). But you might also love to have your symbolic wedding, set right by the river, on the riverbank, overlooking both the church and its famous lover’s bridge.

FAQ about eloping in Europe
Since we work outdoors, we spend a lot of time checking the weather forecast. Having said that, in case of bad weather forecast, we usually wait 48 hours before making a decision. That decision could be, for exemple, to hold your ceremony to a plan B location, covered from the rain. Please contact us for more informations on that issue.

Our unique expertise and know-how to celebrate your elopement
We have celebrated over 300 elopements, vow renewals and weddings, in Europe.

Over the years, we have built up a strong expertise that we will be happy to share with you, for we are the oldest elopement company in Europe!
What makes us different is that, unlike our competitors, we don’t work from template elopement texts; but rather, we create each time a new ceremony to fit exactly who you are. Our local celebrants are all English-speaking and real professionals; there are not students or part-time actors working for us.
Plus, we will coordinate for you, at no extra-charge, all the different elopement vendors included in the ceremony package you will have chosen (more details about the options). This means that we will come up with the best marriage photographer, film director, car, flowers, etc. Our priority is to create a ceremony with the highest quality for the lowest price! An elopement that you will remember all your life!
If you haven’t told your family yet that you are going to elope, here is a tip: Since they love you, they would want to be there for your ceremony. But, one thing you can tell them is that you are eloping just for you. Of course, you will share with them, afterwards, the videos or photos of your marriage, and these will be memorable.
Also, for your wedding ceremony, there is a financial issue; if you have a big wedding at home, it’s going to cost you a lot of money and that’s a very strong argument you can tell your family; it’s much cheaper to have an elopement ceremony abroad rather than to have a big wedding at home. And, last but not least, you could come and have an elopement in Europe, and also have a small wedding ceremony at home! That way everybody is happy…!
