– Vow Renewal Ceremony at the Shangrila Hotel Paris –

WOW!! Laura exceeded our expectations for sure! She was just as excited as we were to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary and perform the renewal of our wedding vows. Working with Laura was a stress free experience. Since having my first wedding I know how stressful preparing a wedding can be. But Laura made it so easy!

She made our ceremony everything we ever wanted and more! We cried and laughed! But most important she made it so special and ours! I was very impressed with her attention to details!!! She incorporated our love story to the ceremony, which was important to us. She made our ceremony one we will never forget!

– Wedding in France, Chateau du Pin, France –

Laura is as good as it gets! My fiancée and I planned a small, intimate destination wedding in the Loire Valley at a lovely chateau. Because it was a destination for everyone in attendance, I had some reservations with planning some of the minor details out and Laura easily put my worries to rest!

She incorporated a handfasting ritual, French vows, and a poem that my brother read, making the ceremony so personal, unique and special! She was so helpful and very easy to talk to. Having her officiate the ceremony was the best decision we could have ever made. Her delivery as well as attention to detail is extraordinary and myself, my now husband, and my entire family was blown away. She is amazing!!!

– Paris elopement in Parc Monceau –

The day of our elopement was extraordinary and perfect! Our celebrant Laura was amongst the top reason why! We have never met Laura prior to our ceremony in Paris but we felt like we have known her long before that. Her warm personality and lovely nature exuded throughout our entire dealings with her. She took away all the worries of the preparation!

For the ceremony she suggested the location based on our brief. She also went above and beyond our expectations when she organized for a beautiful rug as ceremony decoration! It was just amazing! Her words, her delivery, the personal touch she incorporated into the ceremony just made it extra special! She prepared our vows onto paper, which added an extra element we did not have to worry about. I highly recommend Laura if you are looking for a professional, yet personalized and warm celebrant to officiate your ceremony! We have never been happier! Gros bisous Laura. We will remember you always xx

– Paris wedding at Notre Dame Cathedral –

Laura was such a pleasure to work with! Laura was so helpful and responsive right from the get go! Laura did a Skype call with us to answer all of our questions, talk about our vision for the ceremony and what we wanted to incorporate. She even sent me some examples of vows to help us out when drafting our own and get an idea of a flow that would work well for us.

Laura created a beautiful ceremony for us incorporating our history as a couple, hitting on our favorite things about each other and even some surprise quotes from each other that got the tears flowing. I love how she also incorporated Parisian history and the history of the Notre Dame Cathedral (where we got married) in our ceremony. It was beautiful! Our ceremony was so special to us and I love that we will always have that moment to cherish. Laura was amazing!!!

– Wedding in France, Chateau de Beaulieu –

Imagine a perfectly tailored, incredibly romantic ceremony and you will get just that with Laura! We couldn’t be happier with our ceremony! We thought having someone we didn’t know officiate our wedding meant it would be very basic. But it was nothing of the sort! Laura crafted such a romantic ceremony and also helped us with all the little details…

I’m so happy with our decision, Laura’s pricing is in line with with other celebrants, but if you’re making a decision on pricing, I would seriously encourage you to hire Laura… even if it meant spending more: the ceremony is the most important part!

 


balloon release weddingPIA & SEAN

– Paris elopement with Balloon release as family ritual –

We were so fortunate to have chosen Laura as the officiant for our wedding! From the moment we first contacted her she was committed to making our ceremony absolutely perfect. Having our wedding in Paris was a dream for us but we had no idea where to begin. Laura suggested the perfect location, one we never would have been able to find without her creativity and knowledge of the area.

She communicated with us many times prior to our ceremony to make sure it was exactly what we wanted. She gave us the opportunity to control every aspect or leave it up to her; in our case we left in up to her and it honestly couldn’t have been more beautiful. She found a way to involve our 10 month old daughter with a balloon release, which our daughter loved. She is fluent in English, French, and German which made communication a breeze. If you want your dream Parisian wedding to be perfect, hire Laura. We couldn’t be more grateful to her!

– Paris elopement in Luxembourg Gardens –

My husband and I decided to elope to Paris and Laura was an absolute Godsend, we were so blessed to have found her! We skyped with her to begin, to really get to know her and vice versa. She made us feel so comfortable, it felt as though we had known her for years. Laura went above and beyond and was helpful every step of the way. She sent us sample vows and readings, which were seamlessly incorporated with our personal readings to create a beautiful ceremony.

On the day of our wedding Laura was prompt, beautifully/professionally dressed and even managed to match our wedding colors. She worked details about our wedding location into our wedding ceremony and tied it all together with the theme of love and our love for each other. She even spoke part of our ceremony to us in French to really emphasize on our Parisian experience, and then said them to us again in English. She really is amazing!

When our ceremony was over she had us sign our beautiful Symbolic Marriage Certificate and had an envelope with our whole ceremony and vows printed on beautiful paper, so we will never forget what was said on our special day. I truly cannot emphasize how impressed and thrilled we were to have been able to work with Laura. She is an absolute gem and I would recommend her any day of the week!!!

eiffel tower elopementASHLEY & AARON

– Paris elopement at the Eiffel Tower –

Laura was an absolute pleasure to work with! We ended up selecting the bespoke ceremony. WORTH EVERY PENNY! My husband and I submitted answers to a list of questions separately (or you can write them together if you wish) and Laura mixed our answers together for the most fun and personalized wedding ceremony. We were literally laughing then crying then laughing the entire time.

She even printed copies of our own vows for us to read aloud at the ceremony (you can opt for her to do a standard vow, should you decide to not do your own). She had the entire ceremony printed (her speech), which went along with a symbolic marriage certificate and our written vows in a nice little keepsake folder. You will not regret choosing Laura to officiate your marriage! She’s a real gem!!


paris elopementLAUREN & BRYAN

– Paris Elopement at the Eiffel Tower –

Laura is a wonderful officiant! When my husband and I decided to elope in Paris, we had no idea what we were doing. My husband and I had Laura make a personal ceremony for us and it was PERFECT. She sent us a questionnaire to complete and we had a Skype call to work out the final details. I couldn’t have imagined the ceremony being as special as it was. It had us laughing and crying throughout. She was incredibly sweet and we couldn’t of asked for a better person to announce us as husband and wife.

She had a certificate for us at the end of the ceremony and gave us a copy of what she said. Laura is extremely professional and kind. She made our elopement ceremony very special, and we are so grateful! If you are looking for an officiant in Paris, you are in good hands with Laura! You MUST book her for your Parisian wedding! Thank you so much Laura!

JASMIN & STEPHANE

– French-German biligual wedding in Munich, Germany –

Laura was the wedding officiant for our French-German wedding in Munich. She held a wonderful and moving bilingual ceremony which perfectly reflected our story and personalities.

This was possible thanks to the amazing preparation work during which she provided guidance and suggestions while at the same time leaving room for our ideas.

Our guests were thrilled by the ceremony and we can only recommend Laura – she went above and beyond our (very high) expectations.


ASHLYN & RAULSunrise Eiffel Tower wedding

– Sunrise Eiffel Tower wedding –

It’s so hard to put into words how amazing it was having Laura perform our ceremony. Our main focus of our trip and ceremony was to be as stress free as possible and not have to worry about anything but showing up! Laura was so fast in her responses and us visiting from the United States, I never felt worried about the plans we had. She was so professional and personable from the very beginning.

We decided to let Laura read a spiritual reading, and say traditional vows. So when we showed up, we were able to enjoy her speech and enjoy one another. When we got to the vows she even added a special twist of saying the vows in French and then in English which we absolutely loved! I mean we did get married in France so having some French was perfect!! I can’t say enough about how amazing Laura was for our special day.


Eiffel Tower weddingGINA & JON

– Eiffel Tower wedding in Paris –

Laura was a wonderful officiant for us when we eloped to Paris. She made this one of the items we had to give little worry to because of how smooth the planning went. We wanted something intimate and special and Laura provided just that. She tailored it to our desires, included history about us, the Parisian history, and we also wrote our own vows. Her words spoke well for us and we were very happy with the flow of the day.

We had no issues with schedule or Laura’s commitment. She was early, allowed us to be flexible with location due to the weather, and was all around amazing with her services. She was prompt (early actually), dressed accordingly (even catered to our colors/style), and provided us a copy of the ceremony for our memories. Laura was very responsive to our questions and was always available and willing to provide recommendations or provide other info if necessary. I would highly recommend her for anyone getting married in Paris!
