Are you looking for a Lake Annecy destination wedding photographer? Have you considered a destination wedding? Destination weddings continue to be extremely popular as we move into 2017 and 2018 wedding seasons. Couples certainly have plenty of options to choose from around the world!
At Oakhouse Photography we know that many of our couples look to the web for wedding inspiration, and that a ‘lakes and mountains’ destination wedding by Lake Annecy would be perfect! We know the area around Lake Annecy well, especially the beautiful hillside town of Tallories, nestled in the French Alps.
Lake Annecy Weddings
The towns of Tallories, along with Menthon St Bernard and Verier, are smaller and quieter than Annecy itself, especially in the busy summer months. Therefore they are all able to offer a more tranquil setting for a truly beautiful wedding.
Couples have come to realise that Lake Annecy offers everything they could want from a destination wedding – especially a stunning Alpine backdrop, green and lush in the summer. Whilst it’s beauty is indisputable, it is also “Europe’s cleanest lake” due to environmental regulations introduced in the 1960s.
Lake Annecy Hotels – Your Wedding and Reception Venues
In the town of Tallories, the most popular hotels are Le Cottage Bise, Abbaye de Talloires and Les Grillons. These hotels offer couples the opportunity to have a stunning destination wedding with a lake and mountains backdrop. We know Les Grillons well, and cannot recommend the owners, Aurelie and Sebastian more. Their hospitality, professionalism and attention to detail is second to none, and Sebastian is a wonderful chef too! You are guaranteed an intimate, friendly and wonderful wedding celebration at Les Grillons, with exceptional service. As with all Lake Annecy hotels, booking well in advance is essential, as some hotels may not be available for weddings during August.
Travelling to Lake Annecy
Travel options to Lake Annecy include Eurostar (London – Paris- Annecy), SNCF, and flights to Geneva and Lyon from the UK.
Lake Annecy Facilities for Wedding Guests
Lake Annecy is a popular tourist destination known for the following:
- Summer water sports – water skiing, wakeboarding, sailing, swimming and diving.
- Kite surfing and wind surfing – away from the shores to avoid the speed boats and large ferries which regularly pass.
- Private beaches around the lake offering facilities for visitors, accessible for a small daily tariff.
- Specialist paragliding schools and experience packages located around the lake.
- Specialist mountain biking, hiking and climbing experiences.
Wedding guests will certainly be occupied if they decide to stay for a few days!
Getting Married in France
Since getting married abroad can be a lengthy and complicated legal process, many couples choose to have their civil ceremony in the UK. They often keep it a secret from their guests so that when in France, they have what they consider to be their real wedding with a religious or humanitarian ceremony and a lakeside reception to follow. Couples can find out more information on getting married in France via the The Fly Away Bride website.
