Since it’s all symbolic anyway, why not just write your own elaborate vows to each other and marry yourselves?  I find that to be very romantic!

We are eloping to Paris in March. WE are doing a photoshoot around the city with a photographer and exchanging our vows during the shoot wherever we feel is beautiful and not too crowded with tourists at the time. A few places that might work include the gardens outside the Rodin Museum, the Luxembourg gardens, the little park on the Ile de la Cite, or one of the bridges over the Seine. As for an officiant, everyone I contacted was over 600 euros which was more than I wanted to spend for 10 minutes so we are going to have my dad (who actually is a pastor but isn’t coming to paris) tape record the pastor’s part and then we’re going to repeat after the tape recorder, as if he were there. May not work for you but that’s what we’ve come up with. Another suggestion would be to ask one of your vendors like your photographer or hairstylist if they have a friend who would do it for cash.

@Antibride23:  How did it work out? I’m in the same situation.. looking for someone to marry us in a non-religious 20 minute ceremony. Let me know if you have a referral! Thanks so much!
