A Winter´s tale Elopement in the Snow

Winter, a season of icy beauty and magical landscapes, has long been associated with romance and enchantment. Picture a scene where snowflakes delicately dance through the air, transforming the world into a glistening wonderland. In this ethereal setting, two souls decided to embark on a clandestine adventure, surrendering to the allure of love and the serenity of the snowy landscape. Join us as we recount the story of an unforgettable elopement in a winter tale-like setting, where the cold winter air only served to intensify the warmth of their love.

This gorgeous Swiss couple never felt like having a traditional wedding, and this spontaneous elopement photo shoot seemed like the perfect fit for them. A winter elopement in Switzerland might be tough because of the cold temperatures, but the atmosphere and the ambiance of the wedding pictures is so elegant and fairytale like that it feels absolutely worth it.

Proper gear is a fundamental part of a winter elopement, you absolutely have to find ways to stay warm and as cozy as possible. I am a huge fan of beautiful and elegant wedding heels but this is probably not the best time for it. Boots for him combined with his suit and a warm jacket from Bianco Evento for her, along with some termal clothes underneath to keep them warm, and this lovely bride and groom were ready to elope.

The bride was wearing a gorgeous tiara from Lady Schmuck (you definitely have to check her bespoken and handcrafted in Switzerland bridal jewels and accessories), her wedding dress was from Ria Tener, from the Dress Kreuzlingen (I only have nice words for the kind Juli, who helped the bride choose this wonderful ivory dress, which colour was enhanced by the snowy landscape from Glarus) and Flor Bustos was the MUAH artist that created her elegant hair style and make up.

We counted on Elopement in the Alps to organise everything, which help was fundamental: driving in winter conditions can be dangerous, and finding an adequate place along with someone that already knows some safe locations is one of the most important parts when planning your winter elopement. Plus, organisation is very important in this time of the year: you can't spend hours outside as it is way too cold for it, so every part of the schedule must be planned in order not to have any kind of delays that may result in spending more time in the cold weather.

The just married couple shared a delicious raw vegan cake from Nyers Zürich, that perfectly matched the bride's make up and flowers. You can see the highlights of their day below. This winter elopement in a snowy wonderland in Switzerland serves as a reminder that love knows no boundaries. In the quietude of the snow-covered landscape, they found solace and bliss, and their story became a timeless testament to the power of love and the enchantment of winter. So, as the snowflakes gently fall from the sky, let this tale inspire you to chase your own dreams and find beauty in the unexpected. After all, love and winter share a magical bond that can transform even the coldest of days into a warmth that resonates within our hearts.
