A Paris Elopement – Fine Art, city chic romance inspiration.

A Paris elopement city chic romance

Are you thinking about forgoing the traditional wedding and opting for an intimate ceremony under the city lights of Paris? So many couples are now choosing smaller ceremonies, or eloping by themselves to European cities that have captured their hearts. So I was delighted when Charlene Webb, with her effortlessly romantic, fine art photography style told me she was planning a Paris elopement city chic romance photoshoot. I jumped at the chance to be involved.

Choosing to elope in paris

Choosing to elope in Paris isn’t about hitting the famous landmarks. It is about creating unique, romantic, and special moments, filled with cherished memories. Cobbled streets, grand boulevards, and stunning stone arches, even in the rain under a Parisian sky this city is a magical place to be.

Intimate destination wedding details in paris

When you are planning an elopement or small wedding in Paris, or any destination, the small details become really important, because of the intimacy of your day. Your choice of flowers, cake, shoes, accessories, jewellery and stationery will reflect your true, and personal style. And will become a large part of your wedding day memories. Choose wisely. Think about where you will get your flowers from, and how easy it will be to transport your shoes, jewellery, accessories and dress.

Beautiful blush, soft pinks and pops of lilac and fuchsia all complement the Parisian backdrop.

Simplifying your wedding style

Charlotte chose to keep the whole style classic, with just a hint of pink, and the most beautiful A-line silhouette wedding dress in lightweight tulle over glitter tulle and detachable bow tie straps. A delightful, and tasteful nod towards the 2024/2025 trend.  The look was completed with a tall, romantic clay and pearl bridal crown (Orelia) fit for a modern day city of love wedding ceremony and modern statement pearl earrings (Cecile).

hair accessories and jewellery for your paris elopement

Choosing a wedding in Paris is choosing a romantic adventure to a city of romance, architectural beauty, café culture, and exquisite food. So choose accessories that reflect that. The Orelia crown is romantic in nature and an elegant statement in design. Parisians are known for their sophisticated, stylish fashion, and your accessories and jewellery can be too. Reflect the Parisian love for pearls with the Cecile earrings, with their unique, modern design that speaks to the understated and elegant bride.
