Have a chateau-like wedding at the Luxembourg garden
What is the Luxembourg Garden?
The Luxembourg Garden is a 23 hectares public park located in the Latin quarter in the center of Paris. It was created in the 17th century by the queen of France Marie de Medici when she built the Palace of Luxembourg. Today the Palace and garden are owned by the French Senate.

What are the opening hours?
The Luxembourg Garden opens every day of the week at around 8am and closes between 6pm and 8pm depending on the time of year. For the detailed opening hours, please visit the French Senate website.
What is the best time to get married at the Luxembourg garden?
The ideal time for a ceremony varies depending on what is important to you: do you want the best possible light (end of afternoon) or the least people (early morning), or do you want to avoid traffic getting there and leaving (middle of the day). To choose the time of your ceremony, please read our insight about the best time of day for photography and photo tours.
Possible ceremony locations
Depending on your wedding date, time and number of guests, several ceremony locations are possible.
For an intimate wedding in the morning, you can try the Fontaine de Medicis. This spot is in a passage, this is why it may be more difficult to hold a ceremony there at rush hour or if you have a group of guests.
If you have guests, we recommend the laws with a parc view (great lawn). This is the location with the least passage.
And finally, you can have your ceremony on the balcony with the palace view. This may be a tough spot at rush hour on some days, but with the help of an on-site coordinator we can manage to get it for the time of the ceremony.
