Winter wedding in the Maiensäss hotel in Guarda Val
Planning their wedding in winter in a gray valley, the Londoners Dominique and Nathan probably wanted to live the Swiss experience. They had arranged for a “full package” at Guarda Val! It has, so to speak, not stopped snowing, which certainly complicated the task for me a little as the photographer (almost making it impossible to work outdoors!), But due to the happiness and union of the British couple. Guarda Val, it was well worth it.
So here were the couple from London, ready to experience the journey in the cold swiss and set to tie the knot right here. The couple left no stone unturned, with a beautiful place to get married in, the couple of with elegant choices to make it their worthwhile, (from the designer dress to the Jimmy Choo shoes), this wedding certainly had a good dose of magic. The ceremony was overseen skilfully by Alex Wales, the wedding planner. Then the newlyweds continued their Swiss experience playing Alpine horn under the snow! What a choice of entertainment which never fails to impress the audience and they sure took them all by surprise, especially when in the Maiensässhotel Guarda Val room, which was certainly a beauty of a discovery.
Few words were shared with the guests regarding the bride and groom by loved ones, then everyone decided to celebrate it with dances, which continued all evening. A beautiful and a little crazy experience but it was a memorable one for sure.
