Everyone knows Paris as the city of love. “La ville lumiere” is chosen by couples from all over the world as a location for engagements, elopements and fairytale weddings.
Jazzmin and Rayan immediately fell in love with this city and chose it as their destination wedding. The event involved family and friends for 3 days, with a suggestive and romantic “bateau” (boat) ride along the River Saine, an informal and classy cocktail party with a view through Alexander III bridge, the Eiffel Tower, the Liberty Statue and back to Notre Dame.
During this boat ride we had the chance to ride a small classic old speedboat for a pre-wedding photoshoot and couple video portraits.
The day after, a welcome dinner awaited us at the Perruche restaurant on the roof of a famous department store in Paris. The venue for the wedding day was the Hotel Ritz-Carlton in Place de la Vandome, famous for being Lady Diana’s accommodation and one of the most beautiful and luxurious hotels in Paris (I found a Gauguin painting in the bathrooms …).
The wedding planner Le Grands Moments, who also did the wedding design, did a great job and helped us with all the events. Wedding photographers were Bottega53, that came from Italy like us.
Choosing to have in video the entire event, with boat ride and rehearsal, improves the storitelling and the sense of glamour. I suggest all of our clients to book our Amarcord Film Package to have both the wedding and the pre-wedding in their final featured wedding film.
Working for a wedding in Paris, in such an iconic city, surrounded by so much beauty, is always inspiring. Walking through the streets of the center and Montmatre looking for “postcards” footage to use in our famous wedding film intros, is one of the funniest things in our job. I can’t wait for another opportunity to filming a wedding in the city of love.
