The Irresistible appeal of a Romantic Elopement in Europe.

An intimate and Personalized Experience

Eloping allows couples to escape the pressures of a traditional wedding, creating instead a symbolic (non-legal) event that frees them to focus solely on each other and enabling them to make meaningful statements to each other in an inspirational setting. Eloping in Europe allows you to create a truly intimate and personalized wedding experience set in the romantic ambiance of a stunning European destination. In this way couples can exchange vows in private and make their special day all about their unique love story.

Discovering Cultural Connections

Maybe you have ancestral ties to a European country or city, and making the choice of eloping in Europe is a meaningful expression of your heritage. Or it might be a way of discovering and embracing new cultural connections. A European elopement is always an opportunity to incorporate ancient local customs or traditions into the ceremony, adding a deeper layer of significance to the wedding.

Combining Wedding and Honeymoon

Eloping in Europe also gives you a unique opportunity to combine your wedding and your honeymoon in one magical trip! Booking a Europe elopement package not only provides a deeply meaningful wedding experience in the city of your choice but also serves as an opportunity to embark on a romantic honeymoon in some of the most picturesque settings in the world. It’s such a bonus to have stunning wedding photos and videos captured in iconic European locations

Rome is the best location to Elope in Italy and Europe


Do you have a picture in your mind of your elopement in Europe? Elegant, chic, boho, whimsical, princely, fantasy, glamorous… Whatever vibe you wish for your ceremony, you can find the ideal backdrop in any of our 9 European countries.

Imagine yourself exchanging your vows in front of the Eiffel Tower in Paris, with the city’s magical lights reflecting in the Seine, or picture yourself with your beloved among the eternal ruins of ancient Rome. Or you could say ‘I do’ like a movie star atop an idyllic cliff on the French Riviera or overlooking the Mediterranean on a Greek island paradise. In the medieval jewel of Dubrovnik, with its cobbled streets and imposing castles and palaces you will be the royal couple in a timeless romance. Or an enchanting little mountaintop village in Switzerland … or  thrilling Barcelona … or gorgeous Venice …The possibilities are endless!

We have curated the best elopement locations and designed five wedding packages for each destination to cover the usual needs of these celebrations. That’s just the starting point! Once you book your elopement package, we will customize the whole experience to ensure it speaks uniquely about your love story and the memories you want to create forever.

Let’s talk and create your ideal elopement in Europe.

Paris and the Eiffel tower is the first choice to elope in Europe


During the last 15 years, we have organized hundreds of elopements all over Europe. Pierre, our founder, a trained celebrant himself, started this business in Paris, France, the city of love.  His charm, passion for love stories, and his determination that every single couple gets their perfect day is a mission shared by the dedicated local teams that he’s put together in some of the most cherished cities in Europe.

All our celebrants and coordinators are locals; they live and breathe the life of the cities where you want your elopement organized. Our coordinators use only the best wedding services (photographers, florists, make-up artists, musicians, and more) so as to make sure they are creating your personalised elopement experience to the highest of standards. And of course, as locals, they have intimate knowledge of their native city’s secret, hidden corners where you can celebrate your ceremony against the most stunning backdrops but without annoying crowds.

Most importantly, they all speak excellent, fluent English in cities where quite often the natives don’t. They’ll gladly help you navigate the customs and particularities of your chosen European city making the whole process smooth and enjoyable.

Pick an elopement destination that speaks about you

All our elopement destinations in Europe are excellent in their own way. How to pick one? There are many ways to approach it:

  1. Pick a city that resonates with your values, lifestyle, or aesthetic vision. Read about our elopement locations to discover which one appeals, or ask our coordinators for advice.
  2. Choose a country that connects to your heritage. If your family has roots in any European country, you will find a city that celebrates the culture of your history.
  3. Decide on a destination that holds some memories for both of you: a place perhaps where you experienced something that impacted you both individually and as a couple.
  4. Combine this significant ceremony with a honeymoon, and take the opportunity to create a special, once-in-a-lifetime trip with uniquely beautiful wedding photos and videos to bring home.
  5. Not all elopement destinations cost the same. Still, Europe on the whole is very affordable — pick between the options that reflect your budget, taking flights and accommodation into account.

Once you pick your elopement destination, it’s time to book a date and a package.

I travelled to Paris for a romantic trip with my wife and thanks to Pierre my trip was great! Not only Pierre is the CEO of Love Gracefully but he is also a true Parisian as he was born in Paris. I wanted to take my wife to Girafe restaurant where it’s impossible to reserve a table. But thanks to Pierre’ network, I was able to get a great table at that restaurant: he has great connections… I had the opportunity to talk to Pierre many times and I can witness that he is a man of his words: reliable, honest, open minded and very dedicated to make... people happy! Not only that but he has a great spirit and a french personality that makes him all that special. If you travel to Paris and do not meet with Pierre, you’ll miss out!read more

This is a long overdue review for our small wedding/elopement ceremony in Eze, France in August 2023. First and foremost, thank you so much to Love Gracefully, especially our wedding planner Jeremie. We decided on Eze, France as our wedding location and was blessed with Jeremie. From the very beginning he was there to help us along the way. Jeremie was quick and thoughtful with his responses. Any questions we had, Jeremie had the answers. Any recommendations, Jeremie had it. Any concerns, Jeremie reassured us. Coming from the States... (California) we needed someone we could trust and rely on, he was definitely that person. Jeremie was also our photographer, and I tell you, the photos are BEAUTIFUL!! There are so many amazing couples pictures we still have not been able to choose which ones to frame. Only thing that caused a headache on our wedding day was my makeup artist being late. That pushed back the ceremony, making it feel rushed. We didn’t get that extra 20-30 mins to take family photos/ enjoy the scenery because the garden was closing. But that’s not Jeremie’s fault what so ever. Overall, we had an amazing experience and when we look back on that day, we remember the love and happiness we felt. If we could, we’d relive that day over and over. It can be nerve recking planning a wedding in another country but doing it with Love Gracefully was the best decision we made for ourselves. Your wedding day is about you both, and Love Gracefully will help to make sure of it! Thank you a million, and maybe we’ll even be back for a vow renewal. :)read more

Love Gracefully orchestrated our October sunset wedding on the beach in Monte Carlo, and we couldn't be happier. From flawless planning to a heartfelt ceremony, every detail was handled with expertise and care. The officiant crafted a personalized ceremony that captured our love story beautifully, making our day truly unforgettable. If you're seeking a wedding planner and officiant dedicated to creating magical, stress-free moments, Love Gracefully deserves five stars for their exceptional service. Furthermore, if you are looking in the French... Rivera, Jeremie was not only extremely accommodating but made our day perfect! I don't remember our officiant's name, but he made our ceremony a time we will never forget, with fun and laughter, tears, special moments... we couldn't have asked for a better duo! Thank you both for making this day so special.read more

What a great experience! My husband and decided to get our wedding vows renewed in Venice. I looked at several places but after reading the reviews I decided to book with Love Gracefully. We had the opportunity to work with Paola and she did an amazing job with communication, arranging the transport to the location, flowers, the officiant and the photos! I was a little leery at first about sending a deposit overseas but Love Gracefully kept in contact through out the entire process which made me more comfortable. We were so pleased from start... to finish. We highly recommend Love Gracefully and Paola!read more

My wife and I celebrated our 20th anniversary in Rome with Francesca. It was AMAZING. She was so caring and honestly invested in our day. Our photographer and videographer were also fantastic. You can't go wrong with this group and Rome was the perfect spot for a ceremony.

We had an amazing a perfect wedding just the two of us in Paris, France. Pierre was our officiant and Stephen was our photographer. The pictures came out amazing, we chose to do our ceremony first at 7:00pm and finished taking photos by 10:00pm. We took pictures at around 5 different historical locations. car service provided was top tier. Sunset is a great time of day to do the ceremony. I did my own hair and makeup, and my bouquet was delivered to our hotel earlier in the day. Would highly recommend this company and already have a friend who... is going to book their wedding with love gracefully now as well. They did a great job at answering every single question in detail.read more
