Hello lovelies, we hope you’re having a great week! Today we’ve decided that a trip to Paris is on the cards for our Eiffel Tower inspired Shangri La Paris elopement.

Set amid the historic sights of the 6th arrondissement this upscale hotel is a former home of the Bonaparte family. Offing high-end luxury stays, a renowned French restaurant, plush cocktail bar and amazing views it’s a must for a luxury wedding celebration!

Our gorgeous bride and groom opted for an intimate affair with their nearest and dearest in the city of love and the Shangri La hotel was the perfect choice. The hotel provided the stunning backdrop for their first look after which they hopped into their vintage motor for a tour of Paris before saying “I Do” in an intimate rooftop ceremony overlooking the majestic Eiffel Tower.

We just love Ellie’s elegant gown and the idea of touring Paris and enjoying wonderful moments together at each of the spectacular landmarks Paris has to offer, it sounds so romantic. Brant Smith Photography even took them to a few secret spots!

We will now pass you over to Brant Smith who will be walking us through Ellie and Robert’s Shangri La Paris Elopement… bridal wedding preparations Paris bridal portrait
