Versailles is the home to one of the most famous palaces in the world. It’s a great little town in it’s own right but of course the palace and it’s gardens are the biggest attraction!
Château de Versailles is just one of the most magical places on earth! You have your pick of several historical homes and the most amazing array of gardens and fountains in one location and they even have a lake! It is a must see for anyone coming to Paris.
Also did you know, you can have your engagement, portrait or pre-wedding session right in the gardens? *hint * *hint*
This gorgeous engagement session image was taken at the temple de l’Amour which is in the Petit Trianon part of the garden, you can see the Petit Trianon behind in the 2nd photograph.
The Grand Trianon is set within its own park. The pink marble is just gorgeous! A must see when you visit the chateau!
Would you believe we even saw roses in bloom in December in the gardens? I know quite a shock! The weather is not always amazing in Versailles or Paris but even on a cold, foggy December afternoon we had a lovely session. Essential to have a photographer who is skilled in all types of lighting!
The level of detail is astonishing! You have never seen so much beauty in one place! (or gold leaf) I have been several times and still have not seen everything!
Insider tip: if you buy your tickets online, make sure you can get the 2 day ticket and the tour of the private rooms. 1 day isn’t enough for such an amazing place. Also check their events, there are events running most of the year. (Visit the website for the Chateau Versailles for more information.)
