If you’ve been dreaming of your big day since you were small, then you might have been picturing a castle, cathedral or somewhere equally as grand. But what about getting married somewhere less grand but even more beautiful? Yachts De Paris are a Parisian boat company that offer happy couples the chance to get married on a river boat as it cruises down the Seine. Your wedding venue will sail past all the city’s most iconic sights like the Eiffel Tower and Notre Dame. This is a real show-stopping way to ensure your wedding is a day you and your guests will never forget.

At the top of Montrapanasse Tower you’ll not only discover one of the best views in Paris, but also a large event space that can be hired for weddings. As the tallest building in Paris’s city centre, the Montrapanasse Tower really has a monopoly on the view. Host your reception on the roof terrace which soars up to 200 meters high where you’ll be able to see everything from the Eiffel Tower to all the city’s historic monuments. As night falls on your wedding party you’ll see the Eiffel Tower twinkling in the distance as the City of Lights comes alive.

A cabaret hall might not be the most obvious wedding venue in Paris, but this unique and historic building will lend your big day an air of glamour and decadence that would be hard to find anywhere else. With space for 700 guests to eat in the plush surroundings, this is hardly the place for an intimate affair, but if you’re planning on throwing the party to end all parties then this is the place to book. You can arrange with the venue for entertainment throughout the evening and your wedding photos with a backdrop of red velvet drapes will be hard to beat.

This museum housed in an 18th century mansion is surrounded by lush green gardens and sculpted greenery that will give a summer wedding in the city centre of Paris the feeling of being in Provence. The secret garden atmosphere is perfect for creative couples who want to have a playful and whimsical wedding. Go for a small and intimate ceremony with the rose gardens as a backdrop or pitch up a marquee by the lake and dance the night away under the stars.
Of all the luxury hotels in Paris that will play host to weddings, Shangri-La is by far the most luxurious. You can make use of the stunning private terraces with amazing views of the Eiffel tower for your wedding photos, use the carefully restored palace ballrooms for the reception and host drinks in the beautiful salons. The fairytale-like atmosphere will certainly make you feel like a princess on your big day. And once the celebrations are over, there’s no better place to wind down than in the honeymoon suite with your own private terrace and a view of the Paris skyline.

From catwalk shows from some of the world’s most prestigious designers to film premiers, Pavillon Gabriel has seen it all. This stunning venue can also be booked for private wedding hire and you have a choice of rooms and terraces that are all as beautiful as the next. Dating way back to 1841, this is a unique opportunity to get married in a prestigious French landmark. The whole venue welcomes your reception for up to 2,000 people in its modular 1,800m² spaces, but if 2,000 guests sounds like a mind-boggling number, the Pavillon also has four reception rooms available for private hire separately. With beautiful gardens, huge terraces and unrivalled natural light inside, this is a wedding photographer’s (and a bride and groom’s) dream.
