We would like to share another one of our week-end gourmet picnic with everyone. Our clients ordered our Amelie Poulain picnic baskets for their lunch at the Eiffel tower. We set up our picnic a little off the main path of the champ de mars. This way our clients could enjoy a little shade and a peaceful moment with their daughters. Oliver, our photographer took a few portraits of the family as well once they finished their lunch. The family photographs are gorgeous as usual. Having a family picnic at the Eiffel tower is a great opportunity to book a professional photographer.

We assist our clients with the planning of their traditional French style gourmet picnic in and around Paris. Our various picnics are the perfect idea for a romantic proposal, a very special engagement as well as a family reunion, a birthday celebration and a lovers get together! One question comes back quite a bit when our clients reach out to us! What do you do in case of rain?
Sometimes it rains in Paris! We have had unpredictable weather forecast this summer, thanks to global warming situation!
It actually rained all morning today. We had a gourmet picnic planned at the Eiffel tower this morning. Ciaran ordered our “Amelie Poulain” with a professional photo session & proposed to his long time girlfriend. Many of you ask us about the rain situation. What to do in case it rains! Do you have a plan B!
Yes we do … Here is what we can do. In case of our clients engagement picnic at the Eiffel tower, we opted for our plan B.
Paris picnic shelter – Champ de Mars.
We usually wait until the day of the picnic to decide on the perfect location. Our clients receive a general map of where about their picnic will be set up via email. We then communicate via text message in the morning and confirm the location again when the picnic is finally set up.
There are quite a few shelters along the champ de mars who were built by Gustave Eiffel at the same time as he built the Eiffel tower. We decided to set up our morning picnic under one of those shelter due to the sudden rain. When our clients arrived to the site, the sky cleared out and it simply stopped. HOURRA …
The grass along the main alley being quite wet still, they enjoyed their picnic at that particular location. We set up their picnic on one of the traditional bench under the shelter.
Champ de Mars gourmet picnics & secret proposal idea – Rain option site.
Ciaran proposed to his girlfriend as soon as they arrived to the site. It was quite moving for the two of them as it was for us too! They are young, beautiful, happy and in love! It is always a very emotional time to share with them. Olivier took some photos from the distance, introduced himself and took a few more photographs as Ciaran opened the bottle of champagne.
Perfect engagement session in beautiful Paris!
I LOVE the photos, they are so natural! Not posed, not set up, just simple beautiful portraits of the two of them with Paris in the background! The best photographer in town ….

Each and every one of our Parisian proposal are quite unique. We want to make sure we understand our clients needs and special requests. Mark proposed to his girlfriend over at one our gourmet picnic. We had decided on the champ de mars overlooking the Eiffel tower for their Paris engagement celebration. Only we set up their gourmet picnic a little off the main site which can get a little crowded when the sun sets down.
There was a chance of rain on that day as well! It had been raining quite a bit in Paris lately. So we decided to set up their picnic close enough to one of the shelter we use in case of rain. We went out to purchase a couple of umbrellas as well! Lucky enough, the weather was quite nice and we all enjoyed a beautiful evening after all.

Brittany and Kreg enjoyed an afternoon at the champ de mars overlooking the Eiffel tower with one of our lovely gourmet picnic. They secured our Edith Piaf gourmet picnic a few weeks ahead of time. At the same time, they booked Olivier for some lifestyle photos around the Eiffel tower. No special occasion to celebrate apart from the fact that they loved the idea of having a gourmet picnic all set up for them in the most gorgeous city of ours. A lifestyle photo session is also a lot of fun. It is the opportunity to have some beautiful photos of yourself and your partner done while visiting the city.
Olivier took our couple around the Eiffel tower for one hour following their lunch. He had all of the photos edited down to over 100 final images all retouched. They were sent out directly to Brittany’s email via wetransfer in high definition a couple of days later. We love the result! Our couple are really happy with our photographer. They surely had a lot of fun in the process and I think the result shows it!
You dream to engage in Paris. We are ready for you!

Specially at this time of the year, considering the circonstances, it is really exciting to welcome Lovers, partners in crime, friends and families again!

Nik settled for “Jeanne” with macarons, chocolate cakes, seasonal fruits from the market, more sweets and a bottle of white wine with a gorgeous bouquet of flowers.
Classical musicians for the best Paris proposal.
We organised a violon alto and a cello to play some classical music for their arrival & while Nik proposed to Alex! We are downloading a sample video on our instagram page. So watch out, it is simply beautiful to listen to. Those musicians rock, it was really moving to listen to. If you are looking for musicians to perform during your Paris proposal, make sure you get in touch a few weeks in advance. This way we do have plenty of time to get everything organised.

Olivier is a real artist, he has this thing to make his clients relax and have a good time with him. We propose 1/2 hour romantic photo session as well as a full hour with Olivier.

There are 1001 ways to enjoy a birthday celebration in Paris. Our client contacted “Love Picnic Paris” to surprise her husband with a gourmet picnic at the champ de mars for his 40th birthday anniversary. We suggested a spot we favor off the main path of the park. Considering that the Eiffel tower stands at the edge of the park and that the surroundings are considered to be the number one touristic destination in Paris, it is surprisingly quite peaceful. It is also one of our favorite picnic location alongside the Trocadero gardens and the Luxembourg gardens in saint Germain des Près. Steps away from the Eiffel tower, you feel like you have the city to yourself at this champ de Mars picnic location! There are also lots of gorgeous trees on the site where one can shed in case of a summer heat wave! It is also a perfect way to end a morning tour with your Paris tour guide.
You will find a few videos of our champ de Mars picnics that we have posted recently on our instagram page .
