Mountain Wedding in the luxurious Chabichou | Courchevel
A wedding in the heart of nature
Getting married is one of the greatest times in anyone’s life, and to make the special day remembered for the couple, friends and family it is my responsibility, as a photographer, to capture the very best moments. I was given the opportunity to shoot the lovely marriage of Emilie and Arnaud who got married in the stunning Courchevel in the Alps situated in Haute Savoie, France. This beautiful landscape combined with the calm and easy atmosphere was a great pleasure to capture through the camera lens. Because of the time of year, early September, the snow had melted and had left the valleys with a beautiful green covering which were the makings of some excellent photos to really show the beauty of this amazing region.
The Civil marriage took place in the town’s “Hotel De Ville“ or town hall and was then followed by the religious marriage in a typical and very grand church just next door. After the marriage, we all went up to the world famous four star Chabichou Hotel Restaurant, both the bride and groom going in a black 1930’s Citroen Coupé. Upon arrival at the 1850 m high hotel we were greeted with Laurent Perrier vintage Champagne taken from the hotel’s wine cave accompanied by delicious food prepared by étoile chef Stephane Buron on site. All of these beautiful colors and shapes where the perfect subjects for some interesting gastronomical photos.
The day was great for everyone, and I kept a good eye throughout, capturing the “Savoyarde“ ambiance through the heavy forests and reddish wood atmosphere seen in the numerous chalets and hotels. I’m very pleased with these stunning photos of this great marriage ! Just contact us to see the pictures of this wedding …So gorgeous!
