Winter Adventure Wedding & Elopement Films and Photography in the snow

by | Jan 6, 2024

Considering having a winter, or even summer, adventure wedding or elopement and want it captured on film and in photos? 

Then here’s a little behind the scenes to inspire you into action…

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.

I’m based in Wengen, in the hearth Jungfrau region of the Swiss Alps and I am ideally located for filming adventurous alpine and mountain weddings, elopements and proposals.

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 an adventure wedding videographer who loves adventure as much as you, then I can’t wait to capture your story and help make your elopement or intimate wedding day a celebration to remember.

Not only that but I also film adventure proposals both in the winter and in the summer – depending on what suits you and your dreams.

Avgi and Darren are what I call real adrenaline junkies.  They’re active sky-divers and love snowboarding too.  They got married in The Dolomites in Italy and as well as sharing their vows with one another on top of Col Pradat they also had a snowboarding session in between their ceremony and reception.

Alas, in all cases when I am skiing while filming, ski style is cast aside as I always have to take up  the stance of ‘power snowplough’ to get the best footage images which are steady and action-packed. 

But there’s always a chance for the couple to take a break and breathe in the beautiful scenery … I am always filming and I just don’t want to miss a moment!

Here’s the film I captured of Irene and Koen’s wedding in Fiss in Austria.  A jam-packed day which began with a romantic First Look in the morning with the couple and guests heading straight up the mountain for some cake before taking on the mountains and skiing back down to the valley.

All that before they even got married later in the day, when the party really did begin.

Gerry-Rae and Nick 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 and on skis.

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.  Of course… after she said yes we had to do something adventurous and we went sledging!

And let’s not forget when Brennan proposed to Amanda – they travelled all the way from the United States for a winter holiday in Wengen and The Jungfrau Region. 

Brennan had seen many of my proposal films and loved the idea of filming his proposal to Amanda as well as some planned activities later in the day. 

He popped the question to Amanda in perfect conditions …. There was no one else on the slopes and the sun was just rising over The Eiger.  Then I filmed them enjoy a romantic lunch on the slopes of Grindelwald First, take an adrenaline ride on the First Glider and try some sledding in Wengen.

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