Lush meadows strewn with colourful wildflowers, icy-blue cascading glaciers, towering granite spires, and snow-capped peaks are the backdrop to a perfect wedding in Chamonix. The ringing of church bells carrying high up the mountain tops proclaiming your eternal love and happiness will stir your heart and move your soul as you step out into the warm alpine sunshine as a newly wedded couple.
There are many venues for a religious ceremony in Chamonix the most traditional of which are the Saint-Michel Catholic church located in the centre of town, with its baroque style décor and commanding organs, or a charming Chapel with fairy tale-like architecture and intimate ambiance.
Non-traditional ceremonies are often performed outdoors by the gorgeous ruins of Lac de Gaillands accompanied by a string quartet, or in the romantic forest of the Paradis des Praz with a murmuring little stream, and gentle summer breeze brushing the needles of the ancient pine trees.
For those with a unique adventure streak the possibilities are endless: exchanging vows on a glacier, taking the cable car to a mountain top clearing and saying ‘I do’ before paragliding down to the valley floor, or even getting swept away in a hot-air balloon. Winter weddings could entail a ceremony on skis, sleigh rides, or snowshoeing through a snow covered wonderland.
