Chamonix Wedding Photographer & Videographer

Are you planning your wedding around Chamonix Mont Blanc in the French Alps?

Great choice! Whether you are travelling from afar or live locally, Chamonix is an idyllic background for your special celebration in summer or winter.

Chamonix is a charming mountain town with stunning mountain views, delicious french cuisine, local shops selling regional specialties like raclette and tartiflette, comfortable romantic accommodation for every budget, a bustling nightlife scene and endless outdoor activities. 

What makes the town of Chamonix so unique is how easy it is to have an outdoor wedding ceremony at high altitude, surrounded by the towering peaks of the Mont Blanc range. From the town itself you can hop on either a cable car, chairlift or cog train and be in the mountains – or even on a glacier – in minutes.

In winter (mid-December to mid-April) Chamonix is a popular destination for snow sports,  including skiing, snowshoeing, sledding, dog-sledding, ski-touring and kite-skiing. If that all sounds like too much, you can always relax in one of the town’s many spas instead. 

The winter wonderland atmosphere, with candles, crackling open fires, vin chaud and faux fur rugs, make it easy to have a magical and elegant winter wedding in Chamonix.

In summer, Chamonix changes completely. The town slows to a more relaxed pace, attracting visitors to it’s crystal clear mountain lakes, wildflower meadows and green forests. It offers mountain activities for everyone, including hiking, biking, paragliding, yoga, white water rafting and more. The days are longer and the temperate climate makes it perfect for an outdoor wedding cocktail hour and dinner.

Getting Married in Chamonix

If you’re planning a destination wedding, Geneva International airport means that Chamonix is very convenient to get to from all around the world. You and your wedding guests can be transferred to your accommodation within just 75 minutes, in either a private or a shared minivan, by one of the local transfer companies. 

Another big bonus of having your destination wedding in Chamonix is the team of friendly English-speaking wedding suppliers that live here. We have wedding planners, florists, hair and make up artists, musicians and photographers that will all help you turn your dream wedding into reality.

Keep in mind that if you want to legally get married in France, you need to have been a resident here for more than 40 days. That’s why many couples choose to have their legal wedding at home and a symbolic ceremony in the resort.
