If you’re planning to get married in Paris, this luxury pre wedding photoshoot will give you the inspiration you need.
Paris and romance go together so justified called “the city of love”: the romantic scenes, the atmospheric lighting, the wonderful sights and the numerous patisseries throughout Paris create the perfect sense. Every bride and groom will be enchanted by the beauty of Paris, and it will be rather easy to create a perfect, extra chic wedding that will remain unforgettable for everyone. There are many “royal” hotels with breathtaking view of Eiffel Tower, that could host both ceremony and reception.

Paris is the most romantic city in the world, and the perfect location of a exotic wedding or the place to become betrothed to your beloved. If you prefer, you can manage to receive a heart-stopping proposal in front of the Eiffel Tower, or you can still live the dream by tying the knot in your very own fairy tale castle, the Château de Chantilly, just about 50km far from the center of Paris.

The prestigious spaces of Château de Chantilly are perfect for welcoming the guests to a unique, magical, princely wedding. From small and intimate to grandiose, several spaces are available in the château, the grounds and the Great Stables at the Domain of Chantilly.

The walls of Château de Chantilly drip in culture and history. The Art Galleries boast the second largest collection of antique paintings in France, put together by the Duke of Aumale, with the layout remaining the same since the 19th Century.

Keep love in your heart.
A life without it is like a
sunless garden when
the flowers are dead.

Oscar Wilde

Every single suite and room of Château de Chantilly has been renovated and decorated with lavish furniture, nodding to its previous occupants, the Princes of Condé. Vitrines of art from the Belle-Époque feature on the walls, gold leafed furniture tell stories of history, and the arched painted ceilings looking like they belong to childhood fairytales – Cinderella or Beauty and the Beast.

The Château’s in-depth history dates back to the middle ages, when the Le Bouteiller Family were the first Lords to reside. Since opening its doors in 1500s, the Château has had numerous Lords and Royalty residing, from Constable Anne de Montmorency to Charlotte de Montmorency.

The development of the beautiful French gardens and luxury interiors are thanks to the contributions of several dynasties who bestowed their tastes throughout the centuries.
In 1830, Henri d’Orléans, Duke of Aumale became heir to the Domaine de Chantilly, and worked with architect Honoré Daume to restore the ‘Grand Château’ after it was demolished during the French Revolution.
