I've been lucky enough to be involved in several weddings in Switzerland, and beyond the stereotypes and cliches, it's a place of scenery and serenity, each trip as memorable as the last. It's a country of iconic physical landscape, but equally a cool and contemporary melting pot, something that I've always found naturally gives it an edge. Whether I'm in glittering and glistening mountainscapes, chic and slick city hotels, or tranquil lakeside retreats, Switzerland always feels fresh. I'm always thrilled to get to return.

Weddings in Switzerland go beyond the mountains


Though the natural beauty is a big feature of many weddings in Switzerland, it’s my time in Zurich, at the meeting of river and lake, that has really stuck with me. Zurich is efficient and exuberant, a real metropolis as well as a hub of innovation and modernity. Zurich’s history is still very much tangible and intact, but it’s a city comfortably in the 21st century, with physical conversions from old to new dotted around the city.

It is easy to imagine a city so dominated by finance as gloomy and intense, but being so close to vast mountain ranges that define the sublime means that in Zurich the air is fresh, and attitudes are much the same. Whenever I visit Zurich, I’m struck by the diversity it holds. It’s an eclectic mix of culture, faith and race from across the globe, and that’s partly what makes it such an exciting place to return to.

Cinematic landscapes


That all being said, whenever I’ve worked on weddings in Switzerland I’ve been stunned by the natural beauty that abounds, making my job as a filmmaker easy. From Matterhorn, to waterfalls that inspired Byron, to one of the few remaining glaciers from the last ice age. Switzerland is dominated by incredible views. Not only is Switzerland diverse in terms of those that live there, the landscape is equally varied. For a destination wedding this is a gift; there’s no shortage of ways to make your day look incredible. Switzerland is a genuinely overwhelmingly beautiful place, and I relish the challenge of capturing that beauty on film.

Weddings in Switzerland –  Luxury at your fingertips


Though weddings in Switzerland have a certain incredible feel purely in the beautiful backdrop, it’s also a destination where the best things in life aren’t hard to find. In regards to luxury venues in particular, Switzerland truly spoils you for choice, and it’s not hard to see affluence and elegance wherever you go. Whether it’s an alpine escape, a cool and cosmopolitan affair or a low-key ceremony by a lake, in Switzerland you’re never far from the lavish and luxury. The juxtaposing modernity of Zurich or Bern against the vastness of the Genevan peaks or the slopes of Parsenn gives Switzerland charm enough. When you add into that champagne in the mountains, artisan products in abundance and rich delicacies to make your mouth water, you really couldn’t ask for much more.
