Hanging out in a Parisian square drinking Champagne; This might just be the one of the coolest weddings ever.

Leïla and Arnauld married with a chic civil ceremony in Paris, before jetting off to Casablanca for their epic Moroccan wedding.

We’ll have the big event tomorrow on the blog, but we thought we’d tease you first, with the fun Parisian leg of the celebrations – with photographs by Claire Eliza Photography, in her usual alternative, candid, beautiful style.

With the most gorgeous little white dress, bright red lips and a smile on her face, Leïla made a beautiful, beaming bride – just look out for Arnauld’s expression when she makes her entrance!

After they got the legalities out of the way, this cool couple took a stroll around Paris with their friends and family, before spending the night dancing into the wee hours.

Never thought your dream wedding wedding consisted of nothing more than a cute dress, a cool suit, your closest friends and a bottle of bubbly? Prepare to change your mind…

So freakin’ cool, right? Leïla, Arnauld and their friends seem like a lot of fun – I love how having a separate civil wedding is a chance to have an altogether more relaxed, chilled-out celebration.

Thanks so much to Claire Eliza for sharing her gorgeous photos, and of course, to Leïla and Arnauld for sharing their day. Don’t forget to check back tomorrow for their fabulous Moroccan wedding.
