how can your elopement be organized?

You can book a celebrant who can organize a symbolic ceremony.
You will then be able to our exchange of vows in vineyard, on the beach, or any magic place.

You can also have ceremony in church, with your own language, as you have many ones from specific countries and religions. Or have you best Friend or brother be the officiant.

Is the Wedding /elopement legal in France?

There is no issue with people having an informal exchange of vows or blessing in France.
If you want your elopement to be a legal wedding, you must have civil ceremony taking place at the Mairie (the town hall), and thus be french resident (or have one of you French)
Please not that, no priest, rabbi or minister will marry you, unless you can provide proof that you have already been married in a civil ceremony.
