Switzerland Wedding


Today on the blog we have a wedding in the picturesque old town of Schaffhausen.

Before the ceremony they roamed the city side streets, ending at the civil registry office, where all guests were waiting for them.

The wedding reception was held on the couple’s rooftop, with some stunning views!

Corinne & Marco, the happy couple, decided to celebrate their civil marriage with only their closest friends and family.

They hosted a party later in the year for all family and friends to attend.

They kept their Switzerland wedding ceremony an intimate affair.

With Marco having Italian roots, the whole day took on an Italian touch.

After the civil marriage, the couple was received by their friends with a Piaggo Ape, filled with drinks.

They drove the Piaggo Ape home while everyone else walked the distance to the reception on the rooftop.

Italian pop songs filled the air.

 Considering getting married in Switzerland?


Switzerland is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful places for a wedding celebration.

Full of picturesque landscapes: castles, mountains, lakes with spectacular views and culture filled urban settings.

If you want an official civil ceremony then there will be lots of paperwork involved. We would suggest getting a planner to help with this.

We would suggest though, handling the legal side in your home country and hosting a symbolic ceremony in Switzerland.
