FAQ about eloping in Europe

No, Love Gracefully celebrates only symbolic ceremonies, meaning that they have no legal value. Due to heavy paperwork, rules and translations issues, endless administration time, we suggest couples to have their paperwork done at home and come to Europe only to celebrate their Love, far from the boring legal matters and paperwork.
No, Love Gracefully celebrates personalized ceremonies. They can be spiritual or not, God can be mentioned or not: they correspond to your beliefs but they are not religious. None of our celebrants are priests, nor pastors, nor rabbis but all of our officiants embrace a free-spirit that welcome all beliefs and all non-beliefs.
Love Gracefully works mainly outdoors. So that’s something we take very seriously. However, would you have a specific indoor venue in mind, we’ll be happy to celebrate your ceremony there bearing in mind that the cost of that venue is not included in our package price.

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.

How to choose the best elopement destinations ?

Are you wondering how to make your elopement special ? Well, travelling abroad is for sure a great idea. There are numerous stunning romantic locations to have symbolic ceremony in Europe. Some couples will prefer Paris, some others will favour Barcelona or Rome.

Whatever you choose (and we will be here to help you in there!), at Love Gracefully, we will celebrate your love where you want to have it. European cities offer an wide range of top rated locations. Wether you’d like to celebrate just the 2 of you on a beach and have your honeymoon there, or in one of Europe’s beautiful cities or even in the mountain or by a lakeshore, the options are plenty! One thing is for sure : eloping abroad with a symbolic vows ceremony is the best way to have an intimate celebration. That way, you will have all the time to focus only on each other!

We have had fantastic reviews from many couples who chose to celebrate their love with us. Have a look at this couple’s video who decided to elope by Notre-Dame cathedral. Can you picture yourself exchanging your vows with your lover, right here, at the heart of Europe ? We can’t wait to see you here !

Our unique expertise and know-how to celebrate your elopement

We have celebrated over 300 elopements, vow renewals and weddings, in Europe. We have witnessed love in big cities like Paris but also in smaller ones, on the beach (Barcelona, Monaco Monte-Carlo, Nice, …), or in the mountain (Chamonix, Geneva, …) for love has no boundaries ! 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…!

We have selected for you the most popular destinations to help you navigate between all the available options. Europe might be small, it is replete with dreamlike stunning locations to celebrate your love.

For a friendlier use, we have also designed 5 types of elopement packages, each including different services (a photographer, flowers, a car, a film director, …). They are all inclusive and are the key to an affordable symbolic ceremony abroad. Feel free to click to see the different packages options, and select the one that would best fit you. The beauty of this system is that, for your convenience, wherever you are, you pay the same price !
