Proposals, elopements & wedding alpine Videography

by | Sep 5, 2021 | Destination, FEATURED, Swiss

There’s nothing I love more than skiing down a mountain of snow with a camera in hand. I’ve even hung out of helicopters and gone paragliding to capture the best film footage for my clients.

With my Story Of Your Day studio in Wengen (in the Jungfrau region of the Swiss Alps), I am ideally located for filming adventurous alpine and mountain weddings.

Whether your day is taking place in Switzerland, Italy, France, Austria or Germany – it is incredibly easy to travel to weddings taking place all across the alpine region.

So, if you’re looking for a wedding videographer who loves adventure as much as you, then I can’t wait to capture your story and help make your wedding day a celebration to remember.

Gerry-Rae and Nick (above) love skiing and snowboarding and this passion took them to Austria to get married. Zell am See is one of the loveliest settings in the Austrian Alps and the perfect location for taking to the slopes on their wedding day. It’s even how the couple made their way from ceremony to reception – by snowboard.

Alas, ski style is cast aside as I always have to take up the the stance of ‘power snowplough’ to get the best footage images.

Elaine and Alexander didn’t have the snow or skis but were full of adventurous spirit when they tied the knot at the delightful Villa Villette in Cham, Switzerland. What a magnificent setting overlooking Lake Zug.

Alex had arranged a surprise helicopter flight over the Alps for his new bride and although it sadly rained all day, we enjoyed instead an open-top cable car ride up to the Maennlichen, a 2,343-metre mountain in the Swiss Alps located within the Canton of Berne!

When Texan couple Brittany and Ryan decided to travel all the way to Switzerland to emulate a wedding from 1946, I couldn’t wait to be involved. 

The pair headed to a Davos to marry in the same mountain-side church as the bride’s grandparents. This was followed by a marvellous celebratory dinner at Hotel Walserhuus Sertig, housed under the mountain peaks of Hochducan and Mittagshorn.

Unlike many other wedding videography companies, I don’t just rock up to a wedding and film the day, then churn out a formulaic film.

When couples book Story Of Your Day, I work closely with you to tell your individual, unique story. Everything I do is inspired by you. 

I will discreetly capture moments of the day as they unfold naturally and bring them back to life in a beautiful, timeless and cinematic-styled film. 

I’m also the go-to wedding cinematographer for elopement weddings, surprise proposals and pre-wedding shoots.

Like when Chen Yi made a surprise Swiss Alps marriage proposal to Esther in view of The Eiger, a 3,967-metre world-famous mountain of the Bernese Alps.

Or when Jess and Cory travelled all the way from Australia to tie the knot at the stunning Lake Blausee – a romantic forest lake in the mountains. Followed by a grilkota at the Sunstar Hotel in the ski resort of Wengen.

If you’re wanting a winter wedding with sledging and snow fun or take advantage of the beautiful spring and summer sun, then there’s no better place than the mountains!
