We’re dreaming of the snowy winter days ahead and weddings like Mélanie & François’ opulent Switzerland winter wedding has us ready to break out our skis and snowboards. The couple–who have always had a love for winter sports and the Swiss Mountains–knew that when it came time to tie the knot, it had to be at The Chedi Andermatt.
With the help of Junebug member and planner All You Need About, the two exchanged vows in front of the hotel’s fireplace for a cozy, intimate ceremony that was the epitome of winter. Even the floor looked like it was covered in fresh powder. All of these details paired beautifully with the carefully curated white and baby blue dried florals that made up the backdrop.
They then took portraits on ice skates with their photographer, Jessica Amber. It doesn’t get much more romantic than that! So keep scrolling if you’re looking for icy inspo because this one’s love at frost sight.

Memorable Wedding Moments
The first memorable aspect was the location. For those who have never been to the Chedi in Andermatt, Switzerland, it is a cocoon of softness and calm nestled in the middle of a landscape shimmering with white. Our second most memorable moment was the “pre-wedding” evening with our closest friends and family in the hotel bar. The relaxed atmosphere, the delicious cocktails, the laughter, the sharing, and the wonderful emotions made it a memory engraved forever in our minds.

An Oeschinen Lake backdrop, surprise letters from friends, and a champagne shower lakeside—Marine and Antonio traded an already planned, large, and traditional wedding for a picturesque neutral palette elopement with views that made an hour-long hike worth it. The wedding planner, All You Need About, focused on details—from the neutral color palette to timeless floral arrangements, by Rieder Fleurs—that made Marine and Antonio’s dreamy elopement uniquely theirs.
After exchanging I do’s, Marine dressed in an elegant Made With Love Bridal lace gown, and Antonio opted for a champagne shower. The couple then celebrated their new life together with a bouquet toss into the lake. Photographer and Junebug member, Cécilia Hofer Photography, did an incredible job capturing what made Marine and Antonio’s big day special.
