Marriage in the mountains: Say ‘I Do’ at Mont Blanc and have a wonderful winter wedding
Les Rives d’Argentière - the 5-star hamlet of chalets in Chamonix, Mont-Blanc - is pleased to announce that it is now accepting bookings from wedding parties offering a breath-taking venue for those wishing to celebrate their nuptials amongst the Alps.
With so many couples searching for memorable wedding venues, and more and more willing to travel to find that picture-perfect ‘instagram-able’ destination, the five-star luxury ski resort in Chamonix Mont-Blanc is following suit with many of its American counterparts by offering its services to couples tying the knot.
The location of the resort affords exceptional views of the Alps, of the world famous Mont Blanc mountain, and of the Argentière Glacier - stunning examples of natural beauty that can act as the backdrop for the most magical winter wedding ceremony imaginable.
An extraordinary winter wedding
Of course, the attraction of Les Rives d’Argentière goes well beyond the extraordinary scenery: it grants a truly unique experience. The bride and groom could express their love for winter sports as well as for each other by including skiing or snowboarding as part of the celebrations; they could be transported to and from the ceremony on a sledge drawn by huskies; they could even start their lives together with a thrill by paragliding from the mountain tops.
Whether they choose to hire one of the four luxury chalets for more intimate weddings, or the entire hamlet, which can accommodate up to 50 guests, Les Rives d’Argentière accommodates and provides a top quality service to groups of any size. Parties with more than 50 guests will easily find further accommodation in the surrounding hotels in Chamonix.
Martin Bromley, general manager at Les Rives d’Argentière, says, “There is a definite growing trend in destination weddings and couples searching for venues that can provide the whole package - the unique setting, gourmet food and accommodation for all their guests. However, the majority of options abroad are centred around hotels or smaller villas in Europe that can only accommodate smaller groups.
“The benefit of chalet hamlets such as Les Rives d’Argentière is not only that we can organise everything from transport and excursions to the wedding day itself with local suppliers, but that we host everything under one roof and can accommodate so many people, allowing couples to extend their nuptial celebrations with family and friends. For example, hen and stag parties can be held at the beginning of the week, the bride and groom’s family and friends can bond over a number of exciting excursions before the big day, dinners can be held together in an exclusive and intimate setting, and the on-site spa facilities enable everyone to unwind and allow guests to have holiday time before going back to reality.
“An added bonus is that couples can choose to extend their stay with us for a few extra days once friends and relations have gone home. Adding a ‘mini-moon’ is the perfect way to reflect on all the happy memories and make the most of everything that Chamonix has to offer.”
