Discover sublime places for a successful Parisian marriage proposal!

Your proposal at the garden of the Palais Royal

jardin palais royal demande en mariage lieu parisien

This garden is labeled “remarkable garden”, and it’s not for nothing! Between the beautiful arcades that line it and the greenery, and the sculptures, it is a magnificent place for a marriage proposal in Paris!

Word from the photographer

This place has the enormous advantage of being beautiful from all angles, so you can plan your marriage proposal there either in the morning or at the end of the afternoon! I advise you not to go there between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m.: the light will be too harsh. Be careful, it is a very touristic place: by going there early in the morning, you will have fewer people.

How to get there:

Metro Palais Royal – Louvre Museum (1 or 7) or Pyramides (7 or 14)

An atypical place: the columns of Buren

Still in the garden of the Palais Royal, towards the Place du Palais Royal, a more original place should be considered for your marriage proposal: the columns of Buren, with their white and black stripes, are very atypical and in a splendid setting!

This place under the eye of a photographer

An incredible place! Whether in the morning or at the end of the afternoon, a marriage proposal to the columns of Buren will give you splendid photos. Very touristy too, it is a popular place to take souvenir photos. To avoid the crowds, go early in the morning! The columns bring a touch of modernity and the walls that surround these columns a touch of the old: it’s ideal for linking the two!

How to get there:

Metro Palais Royal – Louvre Museum (1 or 7) or Pyramides (7 or 14)

Your proposal in front of the Louvre

pyramide du Louvre Paris

For a bit of modernity and a beautiful cultural reference, choose to kneel down in front of the pyramid of the Louvre Museum! This impressively structured pyramid has become one of the symbols of the French capital.

The photographer's point of view

This place has a wide variety of angles of view for your marriage proposal: the pyramid, the walls of the museum, the gardens next to it… Again, to avoid the crowds and for a prettier light, go in front of the Louvre Pyramid early in the morning or after the museum closes.

How to get there:

Metro Palais Royal – Louvre Museum (Line 1 or 7) or Pyramides (Line 7 or 14)

The Tuileries or Carrousel garden

In spring, summer and autumn, these gardens allow you to make your marriage proposal in the cool, in an idyllic setting of greenery.

Word from the photographer

Right next to the Louvre Museum, these gardens are really peaceful! You will inevitably find a place that you will like, between nature and sculptures. For prettier light if you’re planning on taking photos or videos, go at sunset or very early in the morning.

How to get there:

Metro Tuileries (Line 1)

The petit palais for splendid photos

For a marriage proposal in front of a majestic door, I recommend the Petit Palais!
Climb a few stairs, and put one knee on the ground. Remember to immortalize this moment by taking a picture of the stairs and the entire door for a grandiose setting!

This place seen by the photographer

Go before the museum opens or closes for nice light, few tourists, and the museum door to be closed!

How to get there:

Metro Champs Elysées – Clémenceau (Line 1 or 13)

A grandiose proposal: the Pont Alexandre III

This majestic bridge, a stone’s throw from the Petit Palais, allows you to have both a view of the Eiffel Tower and an idyllic setting (for those who don’t like the Trocadero, or the Eiffel Tower too close).

It is at sunset that you will have the softest light to propose on this bridge. Plan to do it on the side of the Eiffel Tower, so that it is in your photos and your video!

How to get there:

Metro Champs Elysées – Clémenceau (Line 1 or 13)

An iconic place: the famous Trocadero!

The Trocadéro, just in front of the Eiffel Tower, offers you a great diversity of points of view: from the square, from the gardens, from the stairs… For lovers of Paris, it is the ideal spot to take a marriage proposal in front of what most represents the french capital!

Word from the photographer

An iconic Parisian place but also terribly touristy that I advise you to visit only very early in the morning, not only for the prettiest light possible, but also to have fewer tourists in your marriage proposal photos and videos!

How to get there:

Metro Trocadéro (Line 6 or 9)

Port Derbilly for an intimate proposal

port Derbilly au pied de la Tour Eiffel

For those wishing to make a marriage proposal close to the Eiffel Tower, Port Derbilly is an option to consider: just below the tower, it allows you to make your proposal at the water’s edge.

Once your request is made, you can cross the bridge and get on a boat for a romantic crossing of the Seine!

Ce lieu vu par la photographe

Ce lieu est beaucoup moins passant que le Trocadéro et permet d’être plus souple au niveau des horaires: peu importe le moment de la journée, vous trouverez forcément un endroit tranquille où faire votre demande. Pour la lumière, le mieux est de venir le matin, avant 10 ou 11 heures !

Comment y aller:

Métro Trocadéro (Ligne 6 ou 9)

A pretty place: Avenue de Camoëns

For a quieter view of the Eiffel Tower than the Trocadéro, and in my opinion even prettier, I recommend the very beautiful Avenue de Camöens! At the very end of this street, you will find a less known view of the emblem of the capital.

For your memories:

To immortalize your marriage proposal in the most beautiful way, with both beautiful light but also fewer tourists, or even to have the avenue to yourself, plan to go there early in the morning!

How to get there:

Metro Passy (Line 6)

A modern place: the Bir-Hakeim bridge

This metal bridge with a beautiful view of the Eiffel Tower is ideal for a modern and original marriage proposal!

A very photogenic bridge!

To make your proposal while enjoying the view of the Eiffel Tower from the bridge (with pretty light), it is better to come in the morning! Otherwise, as the place is sheltered and will offer shaded areas, you can immortalize your marriage proposal there almost all day.

Be careful though, this place is very popular with photographers, you may have to wait a bit to take your photos there without anyone behind!

How to get there:

Metro Passy (line 6) or RER C Champ de Mars – Eiffel Tower

A more natural place: l'île aux cygnes

île aux cygnes en hiver balade

To get married in Paris away from the gaze of tourists and in a beautiful natural setting, the Île aux Cygnes (Swan Island) is a place that will speak to you! In spring, summer or autumn, this place is a beautiful natural setting, with very little traffic.

The photographer's point of view:

Not very touristy and a stone’s throw from the Bir Hakeim bridge, this island is ideal for a quiet marriage proposal. At sunset or sunrise, the light will be magnificent! To immortalize your marriage proposal in a pretty way, stand in the middle of the central aisle.

How to get there:

Metro Passy (line 6) or RER C Champ de Mars – Eiffel Tower
