Enjoying Paris, love, fun and a romantic proposal at the Eiffel tower.
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 ….
