The Valley

Morzine

Can there be a more inspiring setting for your mountain wedding?

Morzine is a traditional Savoyarde farming village with a year round population. During the winter months, the town is a very popular ski resort, offering a diverse range of accommodation options and excellent links into the wider Portes du Soleil ski network. In the summer, Morzine really comes into its own as an Alpine activity destination, offering everything from mountain biking to climbing, road cycling to hiking and lazy afternoons on the shores of a stunning lake.

Weddings in Morzine are popular throughout the year, and there are a number of excellent, English speaking suppliers available to help you plan your perfect mountain wedding.

Our favourite wedding locations in Morzine include:

Nyon Plateau

With an altitude of 1800m and breath taking views over the village of Morzine, the Nyon Plateau is snow covered during the winter months, with access via the ski lift network. During the summer months there’s a road linking the Nyon Plateau and Morzine.

Le Pleney

Imagine your dream mountain ceremony, set at 1600m with stunning views towards Mt Blanc. The plateau at the top of the Pleney is snow covered in the winter and is home to the Les Gets golf course in the summer.

Lac Mins d’Or

A hidden lake in the Vallee de la Manche, just outside Morzine is a popular setting for a summer wedding ceremony, surrounded by tall mountains.

Les Gets

A traditional French mountain village with great wedding facilities.

The village of Les Gets neighbours Morzine, yet has an Alpine charm and character all of its own. In the winter months, Les Gets is a popular ski resort, especially amongst families because of the quality of beginners facilities available in the resort. And for some time now, Les Gets has been known as ‘mountain biking mecca’, attracting cyclists from across the world during the summer months.

Weddings in Les Gets usually take place in one of the stunning mountain restaurants, with sizes varying from the small and intimate to the large and palatial. The village also has a growing number of luxury hotels, which also made wonderful wedding venues.

Popular wedding locations in Les Gets include:

Mont Chery

With stunning views towards Mont Blanc, the romantically named Mont Chery is a popular wedding ceremony spot during both the summer and winter months

Montriond

PerhapsĀ one of the most popular wedding ceremony locations in the local area.

Montriond is a small village, lying on the outskirts of Morzine but with great links to the local ski lifts. It’s also home to the third largest lake in the area, which stays totally frozen between December and the beginning of spring time. During the summer months, the waters of Lake Montriond dazzle in shades of bright blue and bright green, fueled by the melting snow and rain water that falls on the surrounding mountains.

There are various locations for a stunning wedding ceremony on the shores of Lake Montriond.

St Jean d’Aulps

Stunning backdrops in all directions.

The beautiful village of St Jean d’Aulps sits a little further down the valley from Morzine and Montriond, yet it’s home to one of the most beautiful wedding settings in the area. The Abbaye d’Aulps is an 11th century abbey set in it’s own 3 hectares of it’s grounds on the outskirts of the village. The ruins of the original Abbey set a beautiful backdrop to a wedding ceremony, and there are also medieval gardens, cellars and other buildings to explore.
