FAQ

What is a public ceremony location? Will my ceremony be private?

We offer a ceremony in a public place in Paris (such as Trocadero square or river Seine banks). The Carousel or public castle package does not give you exclusive rights to any public venue. That means, other people can be around. To avoid that, we plan all our ceremonies early morning, because you cannot demand that tourists vacate your wedding space. But don't worry! People are quite nice and respectful when they see a wedding. If we start our ceremony at sunrise, almost nobody is around. Perfect for your dream pictures!

Can we make this ceremony private?

 

If you want a place with exclusive rights and only for your wedding, then we’ll guide you toward a totally private venue.

Can we add decorations and a floral arch?

Usually, when we get this question, couples envision something impressive like a giant floral arch in the middle of the Trocadero, a path covered with rose petals, and Napoléon chairs for guests. But unfortunately, none of this is possible. There are several reasons why we don’t do this. The first one is that it's simply not legal. We know that some planners offer small decorations like a wedding table, but we prefer to work in a safety. We know how important this day is for you and we make sure everything proceeds smoothly. If we try to bring decorations to a public place, we may end up with a few extra problems with the police. It's simply not worth the risk. Wedding day is all about celebration and happy moments!

What happens if it rains on our wedding day?

We have backup plans for every risky situation. When it comes to wedding ceremony locations, you absolutely need to have a place that you can go in case of rain or bad weather. And here’s the thing: Paris has a lot to offer. No reason to panic, we know nice rain-protected spaces to fall back on. If there are thunderstorms or it's downpouring (which almost never happens in Paris, don't worry), rescheduling is going to be your best option. We are flexible!

What happens if our chosen ceremony location is closed?

For each elopement, we make a visit one day before the celebration to make sure that the chosen spot is available and everything looks perfect. If something is closed, we contact the couple and offer a solution, a nice place similar to the original one. How often does it happen? Rarely something is not available. In our experience, it was 2 or 3 times in the last 5 years.
