When you say the word elope, the normal city that comes to mind in France is Paris, but there are so many beautiful cities and places that could provide a romantic venue for your wedding day.
As the vast majority of elopements aren’t legal weddings due to the restrictions in France, your wedding celebrations can happen in any wonderful location that captures your heart. With that said today’s wedding inspiration board is “Elope to Bordeaux” as I hope to share some of the love that I have for the city.
Similar to the model of Paris, a chic and relaxed wedding style fits in with the ambience in Bordeaux. The shot Monique Lhuillier dress teamed with bespoke Louboutins add a carefree edge for the bride, teamed with a grey suit for the groom.
There are many wonderful hotels in Bordeaux, but apartments can provide a relaxed atmosphere for your bridal preparations and immediate honeymoon such as those offered by Bordeaux Apartments.
Not short of stunning locations for your ceremony, the Public Gardens are beautiful with many idyllic quiet areas to exchange vows in front of your celebrant.

When it comes to the wedding reception for two, Oiseau Bleu is an interesting restaurant. A former Polie Station, in the summer months there is a terrace overlooking the surrounding gardens or for the winter months, a chic yet warm and cozy dining room with imaginative creations such as the one above.
