A Shangrila Paris wedding is for sure something you should consider, if you are dreaming about getting married in Paris with a view on the Eiffel Tower. The Shangri La is not only a hotel but also one of the most stunning wedding venues in Paris.


The 19th century building used to be the residence of Prince Roland Bonaparte, a nephew of the famous Napoleon. Now it hosts the 5 star hotel Shangri-La Paris and it preserves the historic architecture and design. The rooms and salons in several historical royal styles (e.g. Louis XIV, Empire, Napoleon, Renaissance) are simply stunning.

Why is such a great wedding venue?

You could celebrate your entire wedding at the Shangrila Paris: From getting ready over ceremony and cocktail to couple photos and reception. There are so many different and beautiful rooms as backdrops for your dream wedding in Paris that will keep you busy your entire wedding day. Here are 3 reasons why the Shangri La Paris could be the perfect venue for your wedding in Paris:

Eiffel Tower views

This is probably the Paris wedding venue with the greatest views on the Eiffel Tower. The iconic landmark is only a stone’s throw away, so you got a view on the Eiffel Tower from up close. The hotel Shangri La Paris offers several rooms with balconies from where you have a great view on the Eiffel Tower. These are great for elopements, vow renewals or simply wedding photos with Eiffel Tower view. For an intimate wedding you should try to get the Eiffel Tower terrace suite (La Suite Shangri-La – see below) with a rooftop view on the landmark and the entire city. If your wedding is a little larger, then you could use the garden for your ceremony and cocktail, from where you can see the Eiffel Tower as well.

Proximity to the Eiffel Tower

The Shangri La Paris is just a short walk away from the Eiffel Tower and the Trocadero – the best public place in Paris to take wedding photos with the Eiffel Tower in the background. So you can easily combine your wedding ceremony and reception at the Shangrila Paris with a photo shoot at the Trocadero Eiffel Tower and other famous places in the city.

Historic ballrooms & Staircase

Paris is famous for it’s long history, for it’s beauty and outstanding art and architecture. If you want this to be reflected on your wedding day as well, then you will fall for the historic ballrooms at the Shangrila Paris. Every room is decorated in a different historical style and in different colors (see more below). You just need to choose which ones fits best to your style and color theme of your dream wedding at the Shangri-La Paris.

Shangrila Paris elopement

Hands down, the Shangrila Paris is one of my favorite elopement locations in Paris. Just get an Eiffel Tower view room for a couple of nights and you are set: We’ll have your elopement ceremony on your balcony with a view on the Eiffel Tower and take more elopement photos around the Shangri-La Paris.

This Paris wedding venue has everything you need to celebrate your love: beautiful locations for photos, ceremony and reception, delicious food and catering and the Shangrila Paris can also help you coordinate and decorate your wedding.

Shangrila Paris vow renewal

The Hotel Shangri La Paris is also a wonderful location for your wedding vow renewal. As a photographer in Paris I have shot married couples renewing their vows with a view on the Eiffel Tower. They loved it to be completely private on their balcony of their Eiffel Tower view room and to celebrate their wedding anniversary in such a magical setting.

Shangrila Paris wedding photos

Also if you are not planning on actually getting married at the Shangri-La Paris, you can take beautiful wedding photos there during your stay at the hotel. For example if you are traveling to Paris on your honeymoon and already got married back home, but you still want to take a few photos in your wedding outfits. Or maybe you are not married yet and would like to shoot pre-wedding photos at the Shangri-La Paris to announce your wedding.
