 French tradition at the Eiffel tower.

The French call it : “Galette des Rois” which translates as ” French King cake”. I have to say it sounds great in French. It is a biblical tradition that celebrates the visit of the Magi to Christ. The season for this gorgeous almond cake extends to the end of the Twelve days of christmas. “King cake parties” is a real delight for kids.They are celebrated all over the country. It is the occasion for another family reunion over the festive season. Whoever gets the King cake trinket is expected to choose his king or queen and share his crown for the day.

We wanted to share one of our lovely tradition with Whitney and Shawn for their last day in Paris.

Red heart shaped balloons with your picnic.

We included a bottle of sparkling wine for Shawn to shake, pop and spray – for the photo session. It is certainly a fun way to enjoy a romantic moment with your lover and celebrate life, love, and happiness. Shawn asked for some red heart shaped balloons as well. We used those gorgeous red heart balloons quite a bit during Whitney and Shawn’s romantic photo session. They looked so perfect & fun to play with. We now propose our new balloons sets to our gourmet picnics & secret proposal packages along with a bottle of sparkling to have fun with.

Your Paris romantic photo session.

All of our gourmet picnics can be coupled with a romantic photo shoot with Olivier; our lifestyle photographer. A typical photo shoot can take any time from 1/2 an hour at the Eiffel tower to a three hours photo story across Paris. Here are a few photographs taken by our photographer just recently at the place des Vosges, in the Marais district. I love Olivier’s style of photography. His photographs are vibrant and always lively.

Enjoy one of his romantic photo session in the Marais. The pictures are amazingly beautiful.

Remember to reserve your date quite early for your Paris Saint Valentin’s winter gourmet picnic and photo shoot. We will prepare our picnics for just two couples on this very special day.

Paris secret proposal at the Louvre

Paris secret proposal at the Louvre gardens.

We have officially entered the fall season in Paris with a lovely secret proposal at the Louvre gardens! Ivan, our client contacted us a while back to assist him with the planning of his proposal to his long time girlfriend. We decided on the Louvre gardens to set up one of our gourmet picnic.  The picnic was all ready to enjoy by 12h30. Ivan was to arrive at the location after a morning bike ride. He surprise his girlfriend with the proposal, crack the bottle of champagne open and enjoy our “Edith Piaf” picnic with his lover surrounded by French history.

Ivan especially requested for a peaceful location in the city center close to the place Vendome where the morning ride was to end. The Louvre is one of the main visited site in the city right after the eiffel tower. It attracts millions of tourist yearly. The park is located in between the museum and the tuilerie gardens. It happens to be peaceful and a perfect location for a romantic afternoon.

Lifestyle photography for your secret proposal.

We organized for our photographer to be present when our couple first arrived at the beginning of the picnic hour. Olivier discretely captured the proposal from the distance without being noticed. He carried on taking photographs while Ivan opened the bottle of champagne. He then moved forward and introduced himself so that he could take a few portraits of the two of them before they enjoyed their lunch. After lunch hour, they all walked around the Louvre museum for their engagement photo session. The photos were all retouched and sent out the very next day.

Our clients received over 100 photographs carefully edited by Olivier.  You will find a few visuals from the day below. It is very difficult to decide on which photos to showcase because there are just so many gorgeous images! You will find a few photographs of the picnic set up, the actual proposal and photos taken in the afternoon over one hour.

Versailles secret proposal Cody + Leah

Versailles secret proposal.

We set off to the gardens of Versailles a few days ago for the most amazing afternoon with Cody and Leah. Leah’s mum had contacted us a while back to organise a gourmet picnic for the kids alongside an engagement photo session in the park of Versailles. Cody was to propose to his girlfriend on a beautiful spring day. We had set up our picnic along the water with some red balloons so that they couldn’t miss the spot!
They arrived, settled down, cracked open a bottle of rosé wine. Olivier was positioned a little far off. He could document the proposal in a discreet manner. We had explained everything to Cody in details in the morning so that the proposal was going to be flawless. And indeed it was! Cody proposed and Leah was laughing away.

Gourmet picnic at Versailles.

We had set up our “Amelie Poulain” picnic on the grass for them. The picnic included a French baguette, a selection of cold meat, a selection of hand picked cheeses, a fresh market salad, a vegetable quiche, a couple of “éclairs au chocolat” for desert, a bottle of Rosé wine and mineral water. When they finished their lunch Olivier took them around the park for their engagement photo session.
The session lasted one hour. It gave Olivier just enough time to have a nice selection of photographs with some wonderful moments.

Day trip from Paris.

Versailles is 1/2 an hour driving from the city therefore the perfect get away for the afternoon. It is easily accessible by train as well as the RER. Leah’s mum had organised everything for them. The whole family including parents and siblings travelled together. They couldn’t resist the temptation to spy on the kids from the distance while Cody proposed. They were all there hiding behind the bushes, contemplating the proposal in action!! So funny and a total surprise to Leah …. and us actually.

Our gourmet picnic package at the gardens of Versailles

We have decided to propose an engagement packages at the garden of Versailles this year. It seems that a few of our clients had been eager to propose to their fiancee while enjoying one of our picnic at the park. It has been a real delight for us to organise our gourmet picnic coupled with a proposal photo session early spring with such amazing surroundings. We have a few special dates booked at Versailles through out the summer. We are so much looking forward to each and everyone of them.
Needless to say that we had a wonderful time with Cody, Leah and the family. Versailles is such a delight for the eyes. We love going there ourselves from time to time to chill on the grass with one of our picnic. It is such a peaceful environment away from the business of the city life!
Enjoy the photos below. If you are considering proposing at the gardens of Versailles, reach out, we would be delighted to be part of it.
