Cruising into happily ever after with your wedding venue in Paris

Are you newly engaged and planning a wedding? Does your nuptial vision board include gorgeous backdrops and scenery coupled with absolute romance?

Your wedding will be one of the most important days of your life, so the setting should be equally divine to complement this momentous occasion.

The City of Love is rife with stunning venues, ideal for your dream wedding. But have you considered an unanchored locale?


Love floats with our wedding venue in Paris

With Vedettes de Paris, you have several venues and services to choose from, whether you’re seeking a location to work your own magic in or an all-inclusive turn-key event. Whichever you select, you’ll have a scene for you and your guests to remember for years to come.

Having your wedding venue in Paris be aboard one of Vedettes’ boats provides you with historical and exquisite scenery to enjoy, including magnificent architecture and bridges, light-strewn streets, and, of course, amazing monuments, like the Eiffel Tour. With a slowly shifting setting, your guests will soak up the beauty all around them and in front of them! And depending on the size and style of your wedding, Vedettes de Paris has a few options for you.

One of the newest additions to the Vedettes de Paris flotilla, the Gustave can accommodate cocktail hour on its panoramic terrace, a seated dinner, or chic buffet service on either the main deck or at river level. This floating pontoon boat is top-of-the-line and can hold up to 200 guests, perfect for those larger than intimate weddings. The Gustave moors and makes its berth at the foot of the Eiffel Tour and includes a private VIP space along with a specific lounge area.

For a slightly smaller wedding venue in Paris, the Paris Etoile can easily and comfortably entertain a party of 110 for a celebration you won’t forget! Make sure not to miss out on the 360-degree view of Paris from our sun deck while enjoying the fully glazed lounge and bar.

However, if you’re planning to include only your nearest and dearest for an intimate ceremony and reception, consider either the Paris Trocadéro or the Paris Iéna, sister boats which each maintain a capacity of 70 guests – after all, sometimes smaller is better when it comes to celebrations.

Every experience aboard one of Vedettes de Paris’ boats is 100% tailor-made to work with your budget, requirements, and desires. Contact us today to learn more about our offerings and how we can make your special day better than what you’ve imagined!

Gustave was inspired by the lines of the company's boats, which were all written by the same pen: Le Paris Iena, Le Paris Trocadéro and Le Paris Etoile.

For example, the Gustave, one of our newest vessels, can accommodate 200 guests for a strolling cocktail party, 150 seminar attendees, or 100 individuals for a sit-down meal, such as a wedding reception. Utilize the main deck, lower level, panoramic terrace, or the private VIP space, and make your event truly one-of-a-kind!

If you’re planning a party that requires a smaller event venue in Paris, then consider one of our more intimate boats, such as the Paris Etoile, Paris Trocadéro, or Paris Iéna.

Sister ships, Trocadéro and Iéna boast space for a cocktail gathering of 70, an informative seminar for 30, and a seated meal for up to 40.

Intimate wedding ceremonies and receptions can best be served by the Paris Etoile or one of the sister ships, while a professional conference can comfortably fill the Gustave. All ships are equipped with dedicated catering spaces ready to create a table service or buffet-style meal, audio/visual hook-ups for presentations and entertainment, tables, chairs, and of course, incomparable views of Paris from the water.

A boat tour lasts approximately two and a half hours, but that’s contingent upon factors such as weather and river traffic. Once the trip is complete and the boat has moored, gatherings or receptions may continue as a stationary wedding venue in Paris as long as that has been previously discussed and agreed upon with management.
