Mountain wedding in seventh heaven

“Let’s party!” are the priest’s final words to the bride and groom in the little chapel on Riederalp, high up in the Aletsch Arena. Not quite appropriate, are you thinking? Oh, but it is: such delightful contrasts are precisely the special appeal of a mountain wedding, which is not just for the Heidis and Peters among us: a ceremony with alpine views and alphorn blowers, the little village chapel as a romantic backdrop for wedding photos, but also dancing that stretches into the small hours – and the next day a wonderfully relaxed canoe outing on picturesque Lake Bettmersee, a refreshing stroll through the thousand-year-old fairytale Aletsch forest or a hike over the biggest ice flow in the Alps.
