With the sunshine came our first wedding of the season last weekend. Zermatt must be one of the most romantic places to get married, with spectacular views and a choice of beautiful chapels around Zermatt and up in the mountains, surrounded by wild flower meadows and lakes, with a blue sky and Matterhorn background view.
In the past we have arranged for a horse drawn carriage to take the bride to Winkelmatten chapel, a private carriage on the Gornergrat train to take the wedding guests up to Riffelalp chapel, champagne picnics in the sun after the ceremony, and of course a wonderful reception back at the chalets.
The summer meadows are lush and green, filled with a riot of colourful wild alpine flowers. Forget-me-nots, Red cardinals, buttercups, orchids, wild lilies, strawberries and raspberries, marguerites, wild roses, violets and pansies; indeed enough edible flowers to decorate a wedding cake.
At Elysian, we love to create your perfect stay, and if you have something extra special to celebrate, that makes us happy too. It is hardly surprising that voted us the Best Chalet, Villa or Apartment in Europe for 2014, when we delight in making every detail of your stay with us perfect.
Summer with Elysian is barbecues by the lakes, then afterwards a swim, skiing on the glacier, then sun bathing on the terrace..walking in the mountains, biking the downhill trails, climbing and via ferrata..and don’t forget the shopping.
Our happy couple and their family and friends delighted in combing a relaxing holiday with the most important day of their lives.
