We have had a gorgeous month and october is even more beautiful … You are in the city with the intention to propose to your girlfriend, or simply visiting with your love one … You are looking for something unique to do, something utterly romantic! Well, it is the perfect time to enjoy one of our gourmet picnic and a couple photo session at the Eiffel tower, just like Ashley and Kent did yesterday. They flew from California; first time in Paris, a gourmet picnic overlooking the eiffel tower is a wonderful Parisian experience. Ashley had contacted us a while back to arrange for our “Leon picnic ” and a photo session with Olivier.
We set up their picnic at the Trocadero gardens so that when they arrived at the location, all they had to do was open the bottle of wine & enjoy this special moment. Olivier met up with them an hour later for their couple photo session. They had booked a mini photo session with us to complement their romantic afternoon.
Below a few of the photos taken around the Trocadero area with the magnificent Eiffel tower in the background. We are often asked for recommendations on what to do, where to go while in Paris! It is always difficult to answer, the city having such a rich cultural heritage. One thing though, if you are going to enjoy one of our gourmet picnic and a photo session with Love Picnic Paris make sure you get some tickets to go up the Eiffel tower. It is a mesmerizing experience in itself. The first time I went up to the top, I was with my parents and probably around 8 year old. I still remember the day …
A romantic gourmet picnic in the fall with a creative photo session with our photographer.
There is no season for romance in Paris. It is always the perfect time to enjoy the city of light when you are in love. There is no special time for a gourmet picnic either along the banks of the seine. Although picnics are considered a summer activity, we are preparing a gourmet picnic for the fall and winter season.
WHY? Simply because we, as a couple enjoy escaping for an afternoon with one of our picnic along the seine even if it is a bit chilly! It doen’t matter really … You are well covered, hat, scarves to enhance the experience!
What matters is experiencing a unique moment with your love one, a special afternoon just for the two of you. This is what we would like to share with our clients at love Picnic Paris. We will include a hot soup, hot tea, some cheese, cured meat and some delightful surprises in our winter picnics. We would set up one of our wicker basket with a blanket at one of our favorite location in the city for you to enjoy.
We want our gourmet picnics to be the special romantic paris experience that we ourselves enjoy together! Love is about sharing, our picnics are a way to pass on our love for the city and the love we have for each other.
We will make our winter picnic a unique delightful surprise to your partner while visiting the city! Paris is fun all year long, the days get shorter, but the love and quality of life is everlasting. Our winter gourmet picnics will be the perfect occasion to celebrate an engagement, a secret proposal to your girlfriend but also a romantic lovers outing before going to see a play or a musical concert in Saint Germain des Prés.
The menu will be finalized shortly. We will be posting in our blog this new venture in more details very soon.

We have had a beautiful weather in Paris this season. An afternoon at the park with a gourmet picnic and a family photo session to follow was just perfect! They had visited the Eiffel tower in the morning. It was time to relax and chill on the grass with a lovely lunch served in one of our wicker basket.

Why not celebrating your Paris trip with “Love Picnic Paris”. Have a gourmet picnic with us, combine with an engagement photo session with Olivier, our professional photographer! Sounded like a great idea to J+M who flew all the way from Passadena to spend a few days in Paris before heading to Brussels and the south of France for their summer vacation.
You have chosen your engagement ring, you have booked your trip to Paris. Only it is your first time in France, you would like everything to be perfect for this very special day. You are not sure how to start though!
Over the past couple of years, we have helped many couple celebrate their Paris engagement in a flawless manner! It takes a little planning to fine tune the little details involved for your secret proposal with ” Love Picnic Paris ”
Once you have chosen your picnic style, we will guide you with choosing the right location. The Eiffel tower is obviously the number one destination but it can get a little crowded. Remember there are close to 17M tourist flying to France every year with a stop over in Paris. Once you have arrived in the city,dropped your bags at the hotel, the first site you would go to is the Eiffel tower. It can get a little crazy at time!
The Eiffel is certainly an amazing place for a secret proposal but do not forget that Paris is a gem of amazingly romantic locations which are often a little quieter. I was thinking of the Louvre gardens located in between the Pyramide and the Tuilerie gardens. Surprisingly enough, it is a little piece of heaven where tourist do not venture. It is only a few yards from the main entrance of the Louvre!
The Luxembourg gardens is also one of our favorite. It is situated on the border between Saint-Germain-des-Prés and the Latin Quarter. The Park is in the 6th arr. walking distance to iconic cultural cafe’s such as ” Les deux Magots ” and the ” café de Flores “. The garden contains just over a hundred statues, monuments and fountains, scattered throughout the grounds. It is utterly romantic, and overwelmingly beautiful!
So here, three different locations to chose from! Once you have decided on your perfect place to propose to your love one. We would fine tune the time of the day, pin point the exact location where your picnic would be ready and Olivier our photographer would take your proposal photographs as it happens.
You would then enjoy your picnic, crack a bottle of champagne. We would dismantle your picnic space for you so that you can carry on with your Paris engagement photo session with Olivier with the most amazing city in the background.
This is exactly what J+M did at the gardens of the Trocadero a few days back. Their picnic was followed by one hour photo session with Olivier around the site. The photos were sent to them a few days after their special event so that they could share they happiness with friends and family back home. Olivier would send you a couple of retouched photos the very same day as well to speed up the announcement!
Paris Rocks, and we love assisting you with this very special moment in your life. There is no need to stress about how things would happen during the day! We are here for you!

Our latest secret proposal venture combining a gourmet picnic and a mini photo session at the gardens of the Louvre with our photographer. When we started ‘Love Paris Picnic ” the idea was to share our love for picnics, outings with friends and creative photography. Olivier is a very talented photographer with a vast experience in lifestyle and portrait photography.
Paris being the city of love, we quickly found our marks, catering for very special secret proposals but not only! You can of course order a gourmet picnic from us via our picnic order page. We have four different gourmet picnics to choose from. I have to say that it is a real delight to organise a secret proposal in our wonderful city for our international clients. It is equally rewarding to prepare a delightful picnic in one of our wicker basket for friends, families and partners in crime who wish to have a special experience in Paris, something that is truly a “French tradition”.
Back to our lovers outings, we assist you with finding the perfect site, a romantic and peaceful setting. We will set up the most romantic gourmet picnic with one of our wicker basket, lovely cushions, candles, umbrella to shade yourself from the sun if need be. We would also dismantle the set up once you are finished so that you can carry on with your visit without having to worry about returns.
As to photography! Olivier would document your proposal from the distance in a discreet fashion. This way you have some creative visuals of a very important moment in your life. The photos would be retouched and sent out to you the next day so that you can share your love with friends and family while still vacationing.
Here is the page where you can choose one of our designed lovers package if you plan on proposing while visiting Paris. Paris secret proposal: Three different packages combine a gourmet picnic with a creative lovers photo session.
We have actually put together different packages specially catered for lovers that combine one of our delightful picnic with a photo session in the streets of Paris from a mini 1/2 hour photo shoot to an extensive 3 hours photo tour at some of the most beautiful Paris landmarks with Olivier.
Our picnics are usually set up at the gardens of the Trocarero, the gardens of the Louvre or the Luxembourg gardens. All three Parisian locations have their own specific charm and atmosphere. We love them all! Our picnics can be tailored to your specific needs as well. We have actually put together a vegan picnic recently for one of our client. This was a new experience for us. Jamie proposed at the Louvre gardens. It was a fun event to organize.
Here are some sample photographs taken by Olivier during the proposal. Paris secret proposal – The Louvre.
Summer time in Paris rocks! It is quite hot though, rule number one drinking LOTS of water and sipping on a glass of champagne here and there. Sepehr took his girlfriend to Paris for a few days. He had reached out to us to help him organize his proposal at the Eiffel tower! Great, this is exactly what we love doing most.
Those few words are taken from his first contact email to us; ” I’m very nervous about the whole thing and have no idea how any of it would work. ” I smile because it is quite often that we receive this kind of message.
We have somehow, quite unintentionally made it a specialty to cater for men looking for the perfect way to propose to their girlfriends while visiting Paris. And let me tell you; a gourmet picnic overlooking the Eiffel tower definitely rocks and is utterly romantic.
We had our photographer discretely photograph the proposal from the distance. Once Sepehr had proposed to his girlfriend, Olivier introduced himself and took a few more photographs at the picnic location while they opened the bottle of champagne. Sepehr and Hinu then enjoyed their gourmet picnic overlooking the Eiffel tower for a good hour and half. Olivier took them for a few more photographs around the Trocadero before they rushed to gare du Nord heading back to London.
By the time they arrived home, Olivier had edited and retouched a selection of 40+ photographs that were sent out to them on the very same day. They had gorgeous memories of their trip to Paris and some beautiful photographs to send out to friends and family the next day.
We received a few words:
It was great meeting you. ” Thanks for all your help. The photos are amazing. We both really liked them. Thank you ever so much for organizing our proposal in Paris “
