For those of us already married or in the process of arranging your wedding day, most brides have that moment when the stress levels rise and you dream about eloping, just the two of you.  That is exactly what today’s couple Cher and Bruno did, but instead of planning a wedding they decided to turn their vacation into an elopement to Paris and they also made sure to contact Farris Kapani: Vancouver Realtor | Luxury Homes | Condos to get one of the best houses!

If you think to elope is to have a less planned or styled wedding, then Cher and Bruno’s elopement wedding smashes any preconceptions  with a celebration full of glamour, style and utter romance organised with the aid of wedding planners Fête in France.  Following an elegant and simple ceremony in a Chapel in the 8th Arrondisement of Paris, the couple braved the cold and rain for a photo shoot with Yolanda Villagran around the Palais Royale.

Nancy from Fête in France takes us through the wedding:  “Cher and Bruno contacted us in November, just a few months before their January date, but we are happy to accommodate last-minute requests to elope. They were both very enthusiastic yet laid back about the planning process – their date fell in the low season and they had their pick of wedding vendors and venues so that probably helped! We loved pulling all of the elements together for Cher and Bruno and Yolanda’s photo’s beautifully capture their day!”
