Paris Wedding Locations: Eiffel Tower

Perhaps the most poular choice of all.

We get lots of enquiries for ceremonies on (I have to disappoint you here: you can’t have a wedding ON the Eiffel Tower) and around the Eiffel Tower. So, what are your best options?

Depending on your personal preference:

  • Champ de Mars
  • Esplanade du Trocadero

The Champ de Mars is a big garden that stretches from the Eiffel Tower to the Ecole Militaire, on the left bank of the Seine river. You can get lovely shots of the tower in the background from the central lawn.

On the opposite side of the river, slightly elevated, there is the Esplanade du Trocadero. This is a lovely spot for photos but very crowded as it offers those classic “postcard views” of the Eiffel Tower and is very popular with tourists.

If you’re looking at having your ceremony around the Eiffel Tower, I’d personally recommend the Champ de Mars, as it’s quite big and it’s easy to find a quiet spot. You can then walk to Trocadero after the ceremony (taking pictures along the way) or stop there during your photo tour.

P.S. Select an early time in the morning if you’d like a wedding around the Eiffel Tower !
