Church weddings in France

Church Weddings in France

We offer you the possibility of having a blessing of marriage ceremony at the church in Paris. People from diverse backgrounds and Christian or not traditions are welcome.

In France, only weddings solemnized by the civil authorities have legal standing;

thus a church wedding has spiritual significance, but not legal status. Before celebrating the religious wedding ceremony, you must provide us with a copy of your legal marriage certificate.

The easiest way to do this is to be married in a legal ceremony in your home country and then fax us a copy of the certificate, or send a scanned copy by email.

You will need to have proof of this in the form of a Marriage Certificate.

Also you have to provide the Baptismal certificate. For more about the paperwork or documentation required, please contact us at

Catholic and Protestant weddings in France must take place in a church, an outdoor ceremony or a ceremony in, for example, a Château, is not possible. However, many of the French Châteaux have small chapels in their possession, which can be used for weddings with the agreement of the local clergy.

For others weddings, a Jewish wedding for example, please contact us.
