Celebrating your wedding at one luxurious hotel in Paris - Why not?
We are truly impressed by the large banquet halls with European-style architecture. With ivory-white stone columns, high and wide arched halls, wooden doors with glass frames, the hotel exudes a noble, poetic, and romantic vibe, characteristic of the Napoleon era.
The Shangri La Paris Terrace Eiffel View Room is definitely a point of highlight for the venue, offering visitors comfortable space, large bedrooms, walk-in closets, and a lounging area overlooking the best part of town. It is the perfect place for a photo shoot, whether you like to capture the interiors or take advantage of the great view by the window for a vignette into the Parisian experience.

Their Michelin-starred staff is full of seasoned chefs who are all elite employees from France's system of 5-star restaurants and hotels and have in-depth knowledge and understanding of French as well as international cuisines to serve even the most exotic palates.

The Shangri La's catering team plays an important role in every wedding. Their receptionists understand the nuance in directly interacting and serving guests throughout events, especially for weddings, where the number of guests is high and the expectations for luxury. You can feel at ease as their enthusiastic, welcoming, and professional in working staff handle your every request. Even for photographers like us, who are there for a job, we never feel like there is nothing we can ask them to assist us with in capturing our clients’ important day.
