I have THE most delightful and intimate real life elopement film Paris of Leslie and Karl from clothing brand Rogue Territory to share with you today. If you have ever considered a wedding or elopement in Paris, then this wedding film by Duncan Wolfe will catapult it to the top of the list.
The couple take us on a tour around Paris following their intimate ceremony that took place in a private courtyard at the apartment that they rented. It was a “symbolic ceremony”, meaning that the couple technically got legally married at a courthouse in California before heading to Paris, but no less their wedding day than at Notre Dame Cathedral.
Leslie fills us in on their decision to get married in the city of love: “Karl and I always knew that we wanted to elope, and that Paris would be the perfect city to do it in! Our wedding day was absolutely amazing, and so so much fun! It was all about us, and only us. The private car tour was really great and definitely the way to see the city! Our driver was very cool and knew a lot about the city. I would highly recommend this to anyone, whether you are getting married or not! We had read about the Pont des Arts bridge beforehand, and definitely knew that we wanted to leave a little piece of us behind, so we found a really cool vintage lock & key, and had it engraved with our initials and the elopement date before we traveled to Paris. We hope to visit Paris again in the future, and hope to find our lock still there!”

Leslie also showed that you don’t have to spend money on couture wedding gowns, with a simply stunning white lace dress from H&M costing under £20/ $35
The film is also better than many tourist films that I have seen and makes me realise I need to visit Paris again soon.
