Switzerland’s the perfect wedding destination if you’re looking for a memorable day surrounded by snow topped mountains, with the most spectacular panoramas that’ll make you feel like you’re sitting on the roof of the world. Discover the most beautiful wedding venues that Switzerland has to offer.
Tie the knot at high altitude in a revolving restaurant at the Schilthorn. You’ll enjoy beautiful panoramic views of the Eiger Mönch and the Jungfrau while slowly spinning over 2,900m above sea level. For fans of 007, it’s possible to do a “James Bond” wedding here, as it is where some scenes of “On Her Majesty’s Secret Service” were filmed.
Perched on a small rocky island on Lac Léman with the snow topped Alps all around, Chillon Castle is known as Switzerland’s most beautiful castle for a good reason. A short walk along a flower-lined promenade takes you to the resort town of Montreux. The Castle is open for wedding ceremonies and receptions on special request.
Few places match Zermatt for its glamour, as the car-free town lies in the shadow of the famous Matterhorn, the jagged tooth-shaped mountain. The cobbled streets and horse drawn sleds will make you feel like you’ve stepped back in time. There are small churches where the ceremony can be held or if you want to make your day extra memorable, you can hold your wedding in an Igloo Village. Zermatt is sure to make for a day you won’t forget.
The glitzy resort town of Davos is where you’re likely to rub shoulders with the odd celebrity or two. With its wide choice of five star hotels, there are a lot of places to choose from for your wedding day. The main allure of Davos, aside from the glorious setting, is of course the nearby ski slopes, which are among the best in the country and provide a welcome touch of adventure to your special day.
For a church based wedding, Lausanne is one of the best choices. It is home to three beautiful churches which are all available upon special request. The huge St. Francois Protestant Church dominates Lausanne’s skyline and is one of the most striking church buildings in the whole of Switzerland. The St-Etienne Catholic Church and St. Redempteur are smaller, but equally as beautiful and historic.

HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN A GUIDE?
WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT YOUR JOB?
It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.
WHAT DESTINATION IS ON YOUR TRAVEL BUCKET-LIST?
I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!
