Romantic Paris Elopement Inspiration

Intimate weddings and elopements have certainly seen an increase over the past 12 months, partly in due to the circumstances but also as a rising trend amongst couples who want something a little more low key, but equally as beautiful and meaningful.  And it reminded me of a Paris elopement editorial shoot from a couple of years ago that I hadn’t got round to blogging!

The story behind the shoot was a couple running off to the quaint streets of Paris to marry in the capital city of romance.  Our bride wore a beautiful Savin London gown and a classic and timeless look created by Team Glam Bridal, whilst our groom wore a dapper Alexandra Wood suit.  As they hopped off the Eurostar from London, down one of the winding streets, a cute florist caught their eye and a beautiful bouquet was created there on the spot!

I could spend hours and hours wandering the streets of Paris, the cafes, stunning doorways and beautiful streets are a photographer’s dream for shooting.  Of course, you can’t shoot a Paris elopement without catching the Eiffel Tower, but head there early for minimal tourists!
