Next weekend is the wedding of the year! George and Milena are to marry after an incredible courtship that began with a series of emails between the two of them followed by a meeting in Paris. They have been together ever since and have even bought a house in Paris that they adore. If you have been wondering how to watch the most iconic couple’s wedding, then read on! We’ve put together a guide that will help you plan your viewing festivities. Check out the wedding party and guests below and start making some plans.
When Is The Wedding?
The wedding is on June 12th, 2019 and will take place at the Basilique Saint-Sulpice in Paris. To start planning your viewing schedule, you should know that the wedding ceremony will start at 3pm and the reception will follow at 7pm (20:00). Weddings usually last for three to four hours, so you’ll have plenty of time to digest the events and get a good night’s sleep (for those who can!).
Where Can I Park?
There are a number of parking garages near the basilica that you can use for free. You can also use the garages near the Champs-Élysées or the Arc de Triomphe if you are driving. Otherwise, there will be plenty of parking spaces available at the nearby La Rotonde or Alexis-de-Totot Towers. Additionally, the garage at the Tuileries Palace will be open on Friday June 12th, 2019 so you can continue your car collection during the wedding festivities!
What Time Does The Wedding Starts?
The wedding ceremony will begin at 3pm on Saturday June 12th, 2019. The best way for attendees to find out what time the ceremony starts is by either checking the wedding website or contacting the venue directly. If you are driving, you should arrive early to get a good spot. Remember to bring your passport with you so you can make the most of the European visa-free zone (if you are a EU citizen).
Can I Fly My Drone At The Wedding?
You can bring your drone to the wedding! George and Milena will be filming the event and might use the little aircraft to get some aerial views of the wedding party and wedding venue. While they don’t need to ask for approval from the drone owner himself, they might ask permission from the hotel that they are staying at during the wedding. Still, you can certainly ask the hotel to let you use their drone while they are there.
Who’s Walking Down The Aisle?
The wedding will start with a fashion show followed by three minutes of silence in memory of the victims of the 2018 Paris attacks. The bride and groom will then make their grand entrance while an organist plays uplifting music. As guests watch the ceremony, they will be able to enjoy a performance by French pop star, Lou Doillon. Following the ceremony, guests will have a first dance and photographer Shashwat Pradhan will take pictures before the wedding cake is cut. After the ceremony, the wedding party will head for the reception alongside their guests. Dance performances and a live band will provide the beat for the evening.
Who’s Attending The Wedding?
George and Milena’s wedding will be an elaborate affair, featuring hundreds of guests from all over the world. The event will be broadcast on TV channels such as Sky TV, Hulu, and YouTube. Celebrities such as Emily Cox, Jack Whitehall, and Stephen Fry have sent invitations to the wedding, while the attendance of other well-known public figures can be expected as well.
The wedding will be covered by major news publications, such as the Daily Telegraph and the New York Times, as well as international magazines, such as Vogue and OK! The guest list is truly legendary and will include some of the most influential and famous people in the world. You can expect to see politicians, royalty, movie stars, and musicians.
What Will The Wedding Look Like?
The wedding will be filmed in a number of ways, including some b-roll and tight shots of the bride and groom to keep the suspense alive until the big reveal at the end. The most iconic images from the wedding will be the ones taken by photographer Shashwat Pradhan. The talented photographer has been chosen to capture the events as he has had the chance to work with some of the most famous and talented people in the industry. His works can be found in numerous prestigious publications, such as Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, and W Magazine. He has also been chosen to photograph a number of celebrity weddings, such as Kate Bosworth and James Marsden’s wedding in 2015 and Emily Cox and Jack Whitehall’s wedding last year.
Pradhan will be working closely with the couple to ensure that every detail of the wedding is captured perfectly. From the outfits to the vows, Pradhan will be there to document every bit of it.
What Will Happen After The Wedding?
Although the wedding itself is an event to look forward to, the couple’s future together is full of uncertainty. After the wedding, they will have to figure out how to navigate through parenthood and career changes all while maintaining their long-distance relationship. In an interview with The Guardian, George said that he and Milena want to start a family as soon as possible and avoid using artificial insemination because they feel it takes the romance out of the act. The couple feels that having a baby will help them bond and be closer as a unit. They want to have a child as soon as possible but will have to wait until Milena finishes her studies at university next year.
George has also said that he and Milena want to adopt a child from a foreign country. They feel that having a child from a different culture will help them learn new things and gain a different perspective on life. If the couple is able to make it work, they plan on expanding their family and becoming parents five or six times over!
