Elope in Switzerland

An elopement in Switzerland or abroad ?

To elope literally means to run or fly away from home in order to get married or make a vow renewal in a beautiful place, far from stress and eventual family pressure. In Switzerland, neighboring Europe or abroad, an elopement is a unique moment that couples want to live only the two of them or with very close family and friends.


What makes the elopement so particular?

Like a secular ceremony, this union is not religious and you can get married anywhere with even more imagination, because logistics is not as significant as for a traditional wedding. Therefore, it’s possible to say “I do” in unconventional places like a forest or woods, by the lake, at the top of a mountain or in front of a famous historical building or monument.

In Switzerland, we are lucky enough to have various and amazing landscapes, but why not taking the opportunity to choose another European destination and exchange your vows in the country and place of your dreams?

I’ve already had the huge privilege to officiate various elopement ceremonies in our beautiful country. Here is an excerpt from a recent celebration I did. A magical moment in the middle of our mountains:

Who is the elopement for?

  • You imagine your destination wedding or vow renewal in a very small group or just with your beloved one?
  • You want this moment to be very intimate, romantic and based on the intensity of your vows?
  • You dream about getting married in front of the Matterhorn in Zermatt, under the Jet d’Eau in Geneva, barefoot in the lake near Lausanne, in a telecabin in Valais (Wallis), in the vineyards of Lavaux or another symbolic place in Switzerland or Europe?

Then, the elopement is perfect for you!
