The Marais, Bastille, The Islands
If you are planning to marry in Paris the Marais is one of its most picturesque quarters. The heart of the City of Lights is the old Marais area. While the name actually means swamp, the winding streets of this gentrified section of town are anything but dingy.
Start over near the Les Halles area, a former open air market now surrounded by restaurants and outdoor activities, then head down the famed Rue du Temple to the shopping streets of the Rue des Archives or the Rue des Francs Bourgeois and turn into the Rue des Rosiers, the heart of the old Jewish quarter. The air brims with history while the streets bustle with locals and tourists in the know.
At the far end of the Marais lies the Place des Vosges where the kings lived before heading out to Versailles. Imagine wedding photos taken surrounded by the red brick buildings where Victor Hugo wrote his masterpieces!
Off to the east is the Bastille area. A tall obelisk marks the spot where the famed prison once sat. Up behind the busy area is the Canal St Martin made famous worldwide by the Jean-Pierre Jeunet film Amelie. There’s also the landmark Hotel du Nord. A wedding weekend event topped off by a stroll down the languid canal is something that can’t be beat.
Just south of Bastille lies the Ile St Louis. Rife with small, intimate restaurants and grand views, the Ile St Louis is a perfect setting for a wedding of your dreams. Cozy, candlelit cellars serve as the ultimate in private partying!
And across the river from the Ile St Louis you can spy the flying buttresses of the Notre Dame cathedral. What more needs to be said?
A wedding reception in the Marais or Bastille offers every possible variety of options from elegant private palaces to temples of haute cuisine.
Place Vendome, Champs Elysees
What could be more Parisian than a wedding in the ritzy Place Vendome? This could well be the most elegant square in Paris in its very center and adorned with high end shops and…the Ritz Hotel. A short walk away lie the Tuilleries gardens with their beautiful ponds and flowers which jut up against the world’s most famous museum, The Louvre.
A wedding destination extraordinaire, the Tuilleries provide the perfect setting for the perfect set of photos! Hotels in the area offer wedding facilities fit for a king.
Up the Champs Elysees, Paris’ grandest boulevard, one can seemingly see forever. But some of the world’s best kept secrets lie off the Champs Elysees with wedding facilities for all kinds of celebrations.
Couples wishing to marry in Paris and be close to all of the most famous highlights should definitely consider this quarter; the selection of restaurants, hotels and ceremony options are some of the very best.
St Germain des Pres, the River Seine
On the world famous Rive Gauche sits the small village known as St Germain des Pres. Quaint streets, flower adorned balconies, well-dressed natives and an entirely homey feel make the area a little gem.
Elegant and intimate restaurants abound while the small hotels in the area are among the most sought out in town.
Just down from St Germain lies the River Seine. The boats that line the river are well-equipped for all your wedding needs. Jazz bands and cruises are available on vine laced decks where you and your guests can soak up the perfect sunset.
