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.
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
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 pre or post 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
Travel options to Lake Annecy include Eurostar (London – Paris- Annecy), SNCF, and flights to Geneva and Lyon from the UK.
Lake Annecy is a popular tourist destination known for the following:
Wedding guests will certainly be occupied if they decide to stay for a few days!
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.
