Eva Longoria and Tony Parker are set to marry in a civil ceremony today (06.07.07).
The 'Desperate Housewives' actress and the basketball star will reportedly marry in a low-key ceremony at Paris' City Hall in the 4th Arrondissement area.
The civil ceremony - required by French law - will be officiated by Paris mayor Bertrand Delanoë and attended by the couple's closest friends and family.
Eva and Tony will also have a religious service at Paris' Eglise Saint-Germain l'Auxerrois church tomorrow (07.07.07), followed by a party at 17th century castle Chateau Vaux-le-Vicomte.
Earlier this week, French-born Tony surprised Eva, 32, by flying her to a medieval castle - famed for its stunning sea views - to have dinner.
The couple returned to Paris on America's Independence Day (04.07.07) and treated 30 friends and family to a day out at Disneyland Paris.
A source revealed: "Tony enjoyed himself completely. He just loved surprising Eva this way."
Eva and Tony, 25, have now checked into an £5,000-a-night suite at the luxurious Park Hyatt Paris Vendome hotel.
A series of Hollywood stars are set to arrive in France for the couple's big day including, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Michael Douglas, Jessica Alba and Eva's 'Desperate Housewives' co-stars Teri Hatcher and Felicity Huffman.
Eva is due to begin filming the new series of 'Desperate Housewives' in Los Angeles just two days after the wedding.
