Elopement en Suisse

 

Eloping in Switzerland or in Europe

Your Romantic Getaway

Elopement refers to a marriage conducted in sudden and secretive fashion. In Switzerland or in a foreign land, away from everything, from stress and possible family pressure, it’s a moment that couples want to experience just the two of them or with very few people as their witnesses.

• You want your wedding to be an informal affair, without all the fuss, so that you’re free to focus on what matters most: each other?

• You might want your kids to witness your vow renewal? This idea is sure to leave a memorable mark on your family.

• You got married a long time ago, and you never had a chance to have the wedding of your dreams? Eloping can be a beautiful way to experience getting married again during a wonderful trip, in Switzerland or abroad.

Eloping is for people who want to have a low-profile wedding or vow renewal, with a select few, or alone with their partner. For people who want this moment to be very personal, romantic, based on the intensity of the words and vows they will exchange.

Wherever you choose to elope, this intimate ceremony and every moment that you experience through it will leave an unforgettable memory.

Since only a few select people will be with you for this occasion, why not plan something special to keep the party going? Couples I know dined with their loved ones on a blanket on a mountaintop, by candlelight. Others rented a small wooden cabin and spent the weekend there, together.

Eloping is an option with endless possibilities to plan a one-of-a-kind wedding ceremony. And, one that puts the spotlight on your love.

Why Should You Elope?

To honor You and the building blocks of your love to start with! Planning your wedding already puts you in a bubble that you will expend and surround you with joy and emotions on the big day. But there are other substantial benefits.

Much like with a more traditional secular wedding ceremony, you can say “I do” in the setting of your choosing. Your can let your imagination run free as the logistics are minimal compared to a conventional wedding. When it comes to the decoration, you don’t actually have to do anything if you don’t want to. You can get married or renew your vows in a forest, atop a mountain, in front of a famous building…

The budget for an elopement is different than for a conventional ceremony. Embrace the minimal planning with peace of mind, knowing you can focus on what you really want.

Making a list of guests is a breeze: you’ll share this moment with the people that are closest to you, the ones who know your story well and with whom you really want to experience this milestone. No big seating arrangements to worry about, fewer things to organize.

Where Can You Have an Elopement Ceremony?

Absolutely anywhere! Since it’s a small ceremony with only the newlyweds, their officiant and (maybe) a handful of guests, you can really go crazy on the location.

You’re picturing your elopement ceremony in Switzerland? Perfect, we are lucky enough to have gorgeous landscapes with a wide variety. Entertain the idea of having the Matterhorn in Zermatt as a backdrop, or celebrating in front of the Jet d’Eau in Geneva, your feet dipped into the water of the Lake near Lausanne, on a boat in the middle of lake Geneva, in a gondola lift in Valais, the middle of the vineyards in Lavaux, in a prestigious palace in Geneva or in another iconic location.

You can also seize the opportunity to fly further away and exchange your vows in an exotic location. You’ve discovered a specific place with your beloved that particularly moved you? Why not have your ceremony there?
