Start planning your
Paris Church Wedding
Christian Blessing Ceremony
Your wedding ceremony is officiated by an English-speaking pastor. Your pastor will write to you directly and include a copy of the classic service. Some personalization is possible.
To make it special, we encourage you to write your own heartfelt vows. Your ceremony may include sharing of personal vows, the lighting of a unity candle and live organ music. Your personal planner can even help you with great tips and vow examples.
You are officially registered on the American Church record. For this reason, the American Church in Paris requires that you provide a wedding certificate prior to your ceremony.
Couple’s Paris Photo Tour
Following your ceremony you’re taken on an amazing chauffeur driven photo-tour which lasts around 2 hours.
You will make stops at several iconic Paris locations, including the pont Alexandre III, the Louvre and Palais Royal. See photo-tour page for more details.
Luxury car & chauffeur
Your friendly English-speaking chauffeur collects you from your central Paris hotel or apartment in a luxury Mercedes car to escort you to your ceremony. At the end of your photo-tour you are dropped-off at a central Paris location of your choice.

Does the American Church celebrate same-sex weddings?
Unfortunately, the American Church in Paris does not propose same-sex wedding services. However, we – at Perfect Paris Wedding – work with a Pastor who gladly celebrates same-sex weddings at our outdoor ceremony locations. So feel free to inquire about your wedding and your planner will happily help you plan your perfect day.
Does the American Church celebrate second weddings
Yes, you can have your wedding at the American Church in Paris, even if it is your second marriage.
What paperwork needs to be done?
Our wedding ceremonies are all symbolic, except for the American Church weddings. Getting married at the American Church in Paris means that you will be officially recorded on the Church’s books. In order to do so, you will be required to provide your official wedding certificate (that you obtained at your legal wedding in your home country).
Will I meet my planner?
Our team is based in France and we have become experts at planning everything via email. But we do understand that couples like to meet their Wedding Planner, so we are happy to schedule video calls for face-to-face conversations.
Can I choose my vendors?
You may have your heart set on one of our photographers or officiants based on our social media or website. If that is the case, let your planner know, your dream vendor may be available on your date! Please note that we do not book vendors outside of our team, but you are free to book vendors of your choice. Some couples come from the US with their own photographer or videographer, and that’s fine. Your planner will of course coordinate with them and inform them of the timeline.
How can I cancel an event?
Life can be unpredictable, even more when it comes to long distance travels. For this reason, we have considered every possible scenarios and we offer you options to cancel or re-schedule your event to a later date. For more details, please refer to our terms and conditions.
