Versailles is the most enchanted destination, only a short drive away from Paris. We love setting up our gourmet picnics under one of those historical tree. You can visit the castle in the morning then walk down to the canal to restore yourself with families, friends and loved ones.
We set up our deco picnic for Nicolas under one of the most amazing oak tree of the park. Nicolas proposed to his girlfriend on the most beautiful afternoon. This part of the park is a little off track from the main touristic area. It is really the most amazing setting for a romantic afternoon.
We are often asked for a private setting to organize our proposal picnics. The Eiffel tower area is the first choice for a surprise proposal in Paris. Some of our clients are looking for something a little different, a little more discreet!
Here another one of our Versailles proposal we organised in the fall this time.

A while back, Néo reached out to us with the idea of proposing to his long time girlfriend while visiting the city. Due to international Covid travel restrictions, his plans were delayed a whole year! We all had plenty of time to fine tune the perfect surprise gourmet picnic proposal. Most of our dear clients decide to propose in front of the Eiffel tower. Noah had the idea to take advantage of a day trip to Versailles to propose to his sweet heart. We thought it was a wonderful idea.
Lets plan your surprise proposal at Versailles gardens.
First, we decide on the menu with our clients and the style of picnic they are after. Noah decided on our « Amelie Poulain » gourmet picnic with a bottle of champagne.
The next step is usually to fine tune the exact picnic location. In order to do so, we usually sent a map with a cross marking the spot. We then communicate detailed information as to how to get there. In case of our Versailles location, it is an easy walk down the main alley from the castle to the water boat area!
We do ask for a phone number so that we communicate 1/2 hour before picnic time the exact spot using whatsapp geolocalization which always come handy!
Once the picnic is ready with balloons, blanket and all the different props involved, we send the green light!
Our professional photographer will document our client surprise proposal from the distance. He will then congratulate our couple and take a few more photographs when they toast and cheer to this beautiful day!
Once the lunch is over, olivier will take our couple around the park for their engagement photo story. The process is fun and creative as you can see with this little selection of photos.
