Planning an intimate destination wedding in Paris is an amazing solution for couples, that for one reason or another, don’t feel like a big celebration at home, with a hundred or more guests. Intimate weddings allow creating a stronger connection with your guests because you spend more time with every one of them. They also allow you to realise your wedding design dreams and are more budget-friendly, than bigger events.

Real couple stories

I was lucky to work with many wonderful couples from the USA and Australia in 2019 whom I helped planning their intimate wedding in Paris. Their stories are a wonderful source of inspiration and I would like to share them with you.


Melanie and Jon – June 2019, 30 guests, budget 20k€

Mel and Jon had an intimate wedding in Salon Etoile Wagram in central Paris. It is an absolutely unknown venue that has a pretty historical interior and amazing in-house cuisine. There are two rooms that allow having vows exchange ceremony and the dinner/party in different places.

India and Hope were celebrating on the rooftop of Marignan Hotel, a 5-star property in central Paris. They had a vows exchange ceremony and a dinner with the view at the Eiffel Tower. They went out to a Parisian nightclub to continue the party after 11 pm.

Lindsay and Chris – November 2019, 35 guests, budget unknown

I was working as a day-of coordinator for Lindsay and Chris, this is why I can’t tell the exact budget of the celebration. They have rented an Italian restaurant called Pink Mamma and had a ceremony, cocktail, and dinner there. We have changed the set-up between the ceremony and the dinner quickly, and used literally zero décor, apart from the one already existing in the restaurant.

Cindi and Craig had a ceremony in the American church, before going for their wedding photoshoot around Paris. They had an intimate cocktail and dinner at Pre Catelan in Paris. This venue has several function rooms of different styles and sizes and offers great in-house cuisine.
