If a picturesque Alpine setting followed by a winter‐sports honeymoon is your thing, then Switzerland could be the ideal venue…
Switzerland’s natural beauty, from breathtaking mountain scenery to idyllic villages and beautiful lakes, makes a great alternative for those who don’t get excited by tropical island paradises. A world‐leading centre for winter sports, it’s one of the most mountainous countries in Europe, with more than 70 percent of its area covered by the Alps.
A typical Swiss wedding might involve a wintry, picture postcard setting, arrival in a horse‐drawn carriage and the unique sounds of a yodel choir.
The Swiss only recognise civil marriages in a Register Office. Civil weddings cannot be held on Saturdays, Sundays or public holidays.
You’ll be given your official wedding certificate straight after the legal ceremony and can then celebrate a religious service if you wish.

Spectacular snow‐capped mountains or low‐key pastoral landscapes with gently rolling hills ‐‐ the choice is yours... Why get married in...
