Paris is one of the most romantic destinations for a wedding. It’s not for nothing that it’s one of our brides’ favorite cities. With Anne-Clothide (Wedding Planner Hedhera Wedding) we have imagined an editorial that would represent iconic places not to be missed for a couple who has never been to Paris and wants to get married or organize a photo shoot there. We invite you to travel through these beautiful images photographed by Christophe Serrano, member of Fine Art Curation from the prestigious blog Wedding Sparrow.
1.Château de Villette – Paris
Close to the center of Paris, we chose the Château de Villette because it is one of the most elegant castles in France to celebrate your wedding. Classified as a historical monument, the Château de Villette symbolizes elegance and luxury. A small Versailles typical of the French “art de vivre”. Nowadays, the Château de Villette has welcomed many celebrities like John Travolta, Tom Cruise or Lenny Kravitz. Dan Brown, the famous author of the best seller “The Da Vinci Code” was inspired by it when he stayed there during the writing of the book. The castle was then used as a film location for the movie with Tom Hanks and Audrey Tautou.
The castle of Villette has this typical characteristic of the castles of the renaissance to propose different atmospheres according to the rooms and its numerous gardens. We staged several dresses and decorations in shades of blue, red, and cream to illustrate the incredible diversity that inspired us the place.
Anne-clothide has done a remarkable job, she is at the origin of the whole session. She was able to assemble a team quickly with prestigious providers. Thank you to the whole team and to the many prestigious boutiques and designers who accompanied us to realize this ambitious project. Thank you to Metal Flaque Paris for allowing us to showcase dresses from BERTA and Viktor and Rolf as well as Bellashoes for their beautiful shoes. Bellashoes works regularly with prestigious designers or celebrities in the wedding world such as wedding planner Joy Proctor.
2.Paris – Alexandre III Bridge
Paris is full of history and monuments. During the Renaissance, France was one of the most emblematic and richest countries in the world. The Pont Alexandre III is located at the foot of the Petit Palais, another iconic place in Paris. The advantage is that it is easy to come and make pictures. I advise you if you come with your wedding photographer to come in the late afternoon. The bridge with its staircases, gold moldings, statues will allow you to have a breathtaking view of the quays of the Seine and the Eiffel Tower.
3.Paris – Petit Palais
If you are looking for an incredible venue with your wedding photographer in Paris, it is the gigantic golden doors of the “Petit Palais”. Located in the 8th arrondissement, it is at the foot of the Pont Alexandre III. The advantage for your photographer is to be able to go from one to the other without transport. The “Petit Palais” houses the museum of Fine Arts of the city of Paris. Ask about the opening hours in order to go there once the doors are closed. In summer, 7-8pm is ideal because the doors will face the setting sun but the shadow of the Palace in front of it will not hinder the photographer to take beautiful portraits.
4.Paris – Trocadéro Tour Eiffel
As a wedding photographer, if there is one place that should characterize Paris, it is the place du Trocadero. The palace faces the Eiffel Tower and is located above the Parvis des Droits de l’Homme and the Palais Chaillot. Located in the richest district of Paris, the 16th arrondissement, it is a place invaded by tourists all year long. You will meet photographers and married couples of all origins. Indians, Americans, Chinese, Europeans, Africans… I advise you to come very early in the morning or just before sunset to hope to have a little less crowd. Street vendors entertain the tourists with pigeons. With an accomplice it is quite easy to make wedding pictures with the flight of pigeons. In our case, with Anne-Clothide, we decided to stay international and to accompany our couple with a Brazilian violinist who lives in Paris because he attends a prestigious music school. It was so romantic, the tourists taking pictures of us and stopping to do Instagram stories with their phones.
