I usually hate likening things to Disney movies, because the whole Disney princess thing isn’t really my scene (shocking, I know!). It sounds so cliche, but everything about this winter wedding day was just magical. It felt like a modern-day Disney fairytale, where two incredibly amazing women stood in front of one another and promised to love each other unconditionally from that day forward, walking hand-in-hand through all of life’s adventures together, wherever they might lead them.
Anna & Jon’s winter elopement in Hallstatt was one of the most intimate and romantic celebrations of love and their adventurous spirits. Nothing was going to stop them from saying their vows to each other outside in the snow. Not even a snowstorm!
Is the idea of spending your hard-earned dollars on a wedding killing you, when you’d much rather be spending it on an awesome ski trip? I feel you! After my first snowboarding trip to the French Alps, I was so addicted to the mountain life that I came back to England and quit my job, and jumped on a plane to the Austrian Alps to spend a winter season in a ski resort. When your highlight of the year is your annual pilgrimage to the ski slopes, it’s hard to imagine spending your savings on anything else, especially a wedding. BUT it doesn’t need to be a choice between one thing or the other. What if you could plan a winter wedding in your favourite ski resort in Europe? Well, guess what – YOU ABSOLUTELY CAN! And I’m going to show you how.
Gerry-Rae and Nick love the beautiful Austrian town of Zell am See. So they decided to make it the location for the spring skiing wedding in the Alps. Their closest family and friends travelled out to Austria, many of them seeing the mountains for the very first time, and witnessed these two tying the knot in Zell Am See’s Rathaus. After their ceremony, they hit the slopes for a few laps of the pistes before continuing celebrations in the AreitLounge.
Paul & Caireen love the snow and the mountains, so they decided to get married on the top of a mountain in Austria. Their ceremony was held inside the White Lounge Igloo Village in Mayrhofen, and afterwards they took to the ski slopes to celebrate.
Abby & Jeff met on the ski hill back home in the USA where Abby was teaching skiing and Jeff was race coaching. So skiing is a huge part of their lives and their love story. This winter they decided to plan the ultimate ski trip to Europe. They visited three countries, attended 4 world cup alpine skiing events AND they got married in one of the most famous ski resorts in the world, Kitzbühel. Unfortunately I was already booked for their wedding day, but Abby really wanted to have pictures of them skiing in their wedding clothes, so they decided to book an adventure session with me for a trash the dress skiing wedding shoot a few days after the wedding.
Inge & Martijn’s snowboard wedding in Zell Am See Austria was a day filled with love and so much laughter. They celebrated their marriage by going snowboarding with their friends and families on the slopes of Zell Am See, then held the craziest apres-ski party in the Schmiedhof Alm mountain restaurant.
