 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 Le Louvre

A gourmet picnic and lifestyle photography.

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.

Amy + Greg secret proposal at the Eiffel tower

Greg contacted us yesterday to help organize a surprise picnic overlooking the Eiffel tower. He proposed to his long time girl friend Amy… who was overjoyed and a little surprised. They enjoyed our “Léon picnic” with a bottle of champagne, strawberries for dessert and a couple of “Eclair au chocolat” that we picked up on rue Montorgueil. Special treat for a special occasion & not to forget a mini photo session with Olivier around the trocadero to celebrate this very special time in their life.

It is such a treat for us to be able to share our love for picnics with clients flying to Paris from all over the world to enjoy our amazing city. Greg and Amy are Australians and live in Sydney. They are touring europe for a month and stopped over in Paris for a few days. They will be getting married in Australia next year. Olivier started his photographic career working for the “Sydney Morning Hearald” over 20 years ago! That creates a special bound I guess! They had a wonderful time both with their picnic and their photographer. Amy & Greg suggested we come to Sydney for the wedding as Olivier was telling them that it was in Australia that he photographed is first wedding on the beach!

Olivier is a wonderful photographer. We propose some top of the notch portrait photography with one of the most talented and sweetest photographer in town. You can see some of Olivier’s private portraits on his website. Amy & Greg proposal photo session was sent out to them via “Wetransfer” yesterday. We have just received this little note from Greg :

” Thank you so much for everything you and your wife organised today, everything was perfect.
The photos look amazing & we are so glad we have met you.
Thank you!!! “
Extra sweet of them … We are heading to the Trocadero for another surprise picnic set up & a photo session this morning. So stay tune for some more exiting photography in Paris.
