Paris Newlywed


I just got back to Paris after a week vacation and, well, I could not help touring my city once again! I went to many places and ended up in Le Trocadero where I was lucky enough to photograph this newlywed couple (I think they are Russian) in front of the Eiffel Tower. Yes, I know, it's the perfect cliché but still, it makes a good photo ;) Update: if you're planning a wedding in Paris, my I suggest you take a look at Jay's photos...

  1. I have heard that it is very difficult for foreigners to get married in France. Is this true?

  2. Well, yes Lilablancas, I think so. Well not more difficult than in any other "rich" country, but yes the Government tries to avoid "fake" marriages.

  3. Very romantic, Eric. Love the fluffy white dress against the blue sky... ah.

  4. The lighting is just right Eric. I'm sure that their photo album will be just as nice.

  5. Yes,"perfect cliché," oh so wonderful! Great light and color and delightful exuberant expressions. The "pose" of the couple is though it was a sculpture on the raised wall.

    I just 'luv' da shot!

    Steve in brilliant sunny Chicago, similar to the one in this shot.

  6. Beautiful!

    Dutch TV. Only introduction is in Dutch, the rest is in English. Europeans know about this but most Americans have no idea as it is not allowed to be discussed. It is slowly changing.

  7. I recently saw a TV segment that featured a woman who collects old wedding photographs. In most cases, she has no idea who the people in the images are or when the marriage took place, and yet she treasures them as if they depict relatives and friends. What could possibly prompt such an attachment to images of strangers, I wondered? Well, perhaps the same thing that prompts our attachment to images of people we know and love: namely, our ability to vicariously experience the joy of others (even though, in our more cynical moments, we might doubt the longevity of that joy).

    The romantic bliss of this (to us) anonymous couple exists as a moment of pure happiness - not just for them, but also for us. Despite all the clichés, it is nevertheless a tiny, trouble-free testament to that desire we all have for ecstatic enjoyment, for moments of pleasure that can be indulged in without fear or doubt.

    I'm sure the happy couple felt that the day was absolutely perfect.

    Bon chance!

  8. Hmm.. they look like they're about to fall! Are they perched on top of something? Still, it makes a great shot, especially with the dress in movement, and one more Eiffel Tower, too, yeahhhh!! ;)

  9. Lilablancas , what is difficult for foreigners is getting a civil marriage.

    But these busloads of japanese etc..couples getting married in romantic places all over France, are satisfied with a religious ceremony. And religious marriages are not considered as official in France, only the civil ceremony is legal and binding. Separation of Church and State...

  10. What a wonderful view of that grand old lady!

    I can't wait to reach Paris! But wait...if my eyes see correctly, is that a rugby balloon in front of the tower?

  12. It is a nice photograph. And it would be just as nice and useful in a bride's magazine. Nice picture.

  13. Eric, this is perfectly Paris. I put a link to it on my blog this morning.

  14. I enlarged the photo to see their faces; great bliss and joy! It's a lovely photo, and NEVER apologize for a Paris cliche! So many of us are envious of your daily exposure to Paris!!

  15. It's not a cliche. It's totally lovely.

  16. Yes, Photolicious, this is a Rugby ball. A big one, celebrating the Rugby World Cup. There is also a giant TV monitor on the Tower, showing matchs highlights and results (and ads !!) all day long...

    ReplyDelete
  17. Oooooh! Felicitations a tous les deux!!! And may they always be trusting of each other... (I don't think her feet are on that ledge)

    Reminds me of 'Bride and Groom of the Eiffel Tower', the painting by the Russian-born French Painter, Marc Chagall.

    What a lovely, "feel good" photo to begin the week on. Thank you, Eric.

  18. Eric, for all I care you can rename this blog "Paris Cliché Per Day" so long as you keep posting these great shots of the Eiffel Tower!

    What a lucky couple to have you nearby.

  19. I haven't visited Paris, via your blog photos, in a while. HOw nice to enjoy the optimism and joy of a wedding couple.

  20. I wish I were them or there rather than in Southern California with these fires everywhere.

  21. Absolutely splendid photo. It made me smile when it popped onto my monitor.

    Enlarging it, he does look like Liberace's son!

    And what is the relationship between our favorite lady and Tour Montparnasse? And the rugby ball? You know those French....

  22. I love the veil over both of them - cute! My friend tried to get married in Paris two years ago and they told her that she would have to establish residency in France for 6 months before she could be issued a civil license. Boo hoo.

  23. I'm sure they will be in heaven with this photo, it is a great shot.

    I didn't think they were French, that faux-fur jacket is rather peculiar. Were they expecting a storm??? God Bless them, at least they made it to Paris for their big day, and the weather was certainly in their favor!!

  24. Luggi..."Liberace"? I'd say he looks a lot like Barry Manilow wouldn't you?

    ReplyDelete
  25. Spot on Michael!! He DOES look like Barry Manilow.

    ReplyDelete
  26. LOL Michael - I was thinking the same thing: Barry Manilow a la brunette! "Looks like we made it..." (I can't carry a tune ;) )

    ReplyDelete
  27. Sue and Pont Girl, I'm sure he's saying to her, "Looks like we made it as you know I can't smile without you." And of course he's wondering to himself..."Could it be magic?"

  28. un cliché - un de plus. Rien de bien nouveau. Isnt't it what this blog is all about, Paris clichés for american wealthy tourists ?
