Destination Weddings in St. Anton - Arlberg/Tyrol - Austria

St. Anton am Arlberg is great for a winter wedding!

There are several great locations in St. Anton and we want to share some very special places with you. We can definitely recommend the Arlberg Hospiz ***** in St. Christoph which is a gorgeous location with a big tradition and history. If you like luxury and hospitality you are absolutely right here. The hotel is awesome, the people are extremely obliging and there is a professional wedding planner to assist you with any question you might have.

Another great tip is to have the reception at the Hospiz Alm. A crackling comes from the fire place and soothing warmth floods the room while snow coveres the mountains of the Arlberg massif.

An extraordinary location is the Museum Restaurant which is half ski-museum and half restaurant. You can have your reception there and make sure all your guests enjoy a walk through the history of skiing in St. Anton.

Another great place to be is the Anton Bar right at the heart of St. Anton am Arlberg. The Hotel Anton has already won a lot of design awards, so this might be a place to consider as well!

What ever location you choose having a winter wedding is definitely a very special and awesome way to say I DO!

Things you should consider having a winter wedding:

  • It gets dark about 4pm, so consider having your photo shoot earlier to have some daylight left.
  • It can get really cold in St. Anton, so make sure to bring some warm shoes, stole, etc.
  • Because of the low temperatures you might want to go for an indoor location. A fireplace and typical warm drinks like ´Glühwein´ might fit just well.
  • What happens if it is snowing? Bring an umbrella for walking around.

Lake Cauma Wedding with Jenny & Alex | Laax, Flims | Switzerland

July 25, 2018

What a wedding weekend in Switzerland! I'm still overwhelmed and I don't know where to start. Tears, hugs, laughs, rain and sun... this weekend had it all and our hearts and hard drives are full of love. Australia (yes, where the kangaroos are from) and Germany met in Switzerland to celebrate love. Let's start from scratch. Do you remember the Arlberg Surprise Proposal and Winter Engagement Shoot we were involved? Exactly, that was the day we met Jenny and Alex for the first time in person. Alex is from Adelaide, Australia and Jenny from Germany. They met in Australia, lived there together and moved to Switzerland not too long ago. During their winter holidays in St. Anton at the Arlberg Alex popped THE question and we were the lucky ones to capture this beautiful and inimitable moment. A few months later they contacted us and asked if we would be available for their wedding date. YES was our answer and last weekend we had the wonderful opportunity to meet them both again, as well as their families and friends. They were all so kind, fun, thoughtful and genuine. Everyone stayed at the rocksresort and Signina Hotel in Laax. What an amazing hotel and area. We were totally surprised how much was going on there in summer, especially for kids, they are really family-friendly and we definitely have to come back with our little girl for some adventures. Jenny and Alex love to snowboard and they visit Laax and the rocksresort in winter every now and then. They love this place and so they chose this area for their wedding celebrations. A beautiful outdoor ceremony in Flims at Lake Cauma was planned and thankfully - against all weather forecasts - it could take place outside and we did not have to go with plan B. The ceremony, held by two of their closest friends, was so touching - not just bride and groom needed a handkerchief, also lots of their guests. After the ceremony the bridal couple rowed a boat across the teal lake and met their guests at the aperó location. At this point we would like to say THANKS again to the amazing team at Lake Cauma for their steady support and for making the outdoor ceremony and celebration happen. We've already experienced lots of events where the venue opted for plan B, even when the weather was quite ok. We know that it's a lot of effort and sometimes risky, but you make your couples really happy and that's worth the extra mile. We already mentioned the crazy weather. The days before the wedding it was really hot and for the wedding day itself 16 degrees Celsius and rain from 10am on was forecast. We were so lucky that the rain waited until 2.30pm and so the ceremony could take place outside at the lake, we could create some portraits with bride and groom, the guests could enjoy some drinks and food at the Caumasee Lounge and also group shots could be done with just a few raindrops. For dinner we all went up to Stalla on the Alp Nagens, 1.980 meters above sea level. In winter the bridal couple visits this place for fondue and apres ski - an extraordinary venue with an amazing team. The view up there must be impressive, unfortunately we could not see much at all due to heavy clouds and fog, but we will not complain about the weather as it played along much better than expected, we just know first-hand how it feels when you organize something great for your guests and the weather crosses your plans. Stalla is a really cozy restaurant and they serve extremely delicious food. Why we know that? We also had the chance to enjoy dinner and it was a burst of flavor. I hardly can believe how this team could prepare food for all wedding guests at the same time in this teeny-tiny kitchen - respect! If you should visit this place someday, please check out their kitchen and bar, it proves that good team work and being organized makes a huge difference. But I think it's enough now, there are no more words needed - please enjoy our Swiss journey from Rocksresort to Caumasee and Stalla and soak up all the emotions! Jenny and Alex, thank you so much for having us as your wedding photographers in Switzerland. We are so impressed by your kindness, calmness and hospitality. Words fail me. Wishing you all the best for your future and hopefully our paths cross someday again!

Winter Wedding Album | Tracey & Kelly

December 07, 2017

We love the snowy season and when a couple decides to get married in winter and there is lots of snow it cannot get any better. Tracey and Kelly are from the United States and as they love the snow and the mountains they chose to have a winter wonderland wedding at the Hospiz Alm in St. Christoph at the Arlberg, Tyrol. They chose the Christmas season so lots of their friends from the United States could join the celebrations combined with a winter holiday. Tracey and Kelly are totally into horses, so their wedding logo incorporated this topic as well as the winter theme. Tracey's dress was beyond gorgeous, a handwoven masterpiece - if you would like to see more wedding photos you can check out their blog post here. When we documented this wedding I was 7 month pregnant. In winter, when you have to wear a thick coat (it had -16 degrees Celsius outside), with a big belly and lots of equipment in a shoulder bag and a camera in your hands, it can be a bit challenging to move around as photographer ;) but everything turned out great. Since 2013 we meet Tracey and Kelly every year during their annually Austria visit and so we also had the chance to hand over their wedding album in person. It is always something special when you can watch the couple flipping through their family heirloom for the very first time. They start to giggle and laugh and also some tears of joy can be part of this experience. This moment is priceless!

Arlberg Surprise Proposal & Engagement Shoot | Jenny & Alex | St. Anton, Tyrol

February 10, 2017

We are still having goose pumps when we think back to this week's snowy surprise proposal in St. Anton at the Arlberg. When Alex contacted us a while ago we were in on it right from the beginning. It's something really special if you get asked to join such a wonderful, intimate and once-in-a-lifetime moment. Thank you so much for your trust and for letting us be part of this special occasion. Alex organized everything perfectly and not just the proposal was a surprise, also the photo shoot. Jenny found out at the morning that a couple shoot will take place that day in their winter holiadys in St. Anton. You know that we girls are always a bit worried about hair and make-up when it comes to photos, so that was a smart way! This lovely couple has a great story: Alex is from Adelaide, Australia and Jenny from Germany. Jenny moved to Australia several years ago, there they both met through friends and a few years later they fell in love. Not too long ago they decided to move to Switzerland, there they enjoy their lives together at the moment. This week they spent in St. Anton at the Arlberg, Tyrol to snowboard. This holiday was perfect to pop THE question. We did a sleigh ride with these two lovebirds, started with the official couple shoot and as soon as Alex found the right place and was ready the special moment happened. We are always thrilled when we photograph a proposal and we almost press the shutter continuously. Alex and we were really relieved that it was a perfect surprise for Jenny and when you look at the photos I think you know what her answer was :) We wish you both all the best for your future togehter and we want to thank you again that we could be part of this adventure - with these photos you can tell many generations to come how you started your life as husband and wife! Wherever in the world your wedding will take place, just let us know - we would be more than happy to accompany you! Lots of hugs, Nina & Phil

From Texas to Austria to celebrate Love | Tracey & Kelly winter wedding | St. Anton & St. Christoph, Arlberg

January 28, 2014

One year ago we met Tracey and Kelly from Texas for the first time in person and had a wonderful afternoon together while taking their engagement photos. Short ago it was time for their wonderful winter wedding in St. Anton and St. Christoph at the Arlberg. They chose to get married between Christmas and New Year and so lots of their families and friends from all over the United States made it happen to come to Austria for this special occasion. They combined it with a winter and skiing vacation, really perfect. The day before the wedding we had the great opportunity to meet some of their guests already in person as we had a whole shooting day to create some wonderful snowy memories for them - find some images in our previous blog post. On their wedding day we had MINUS 18 degrees celsius but Kelly and his friend Billy are really tough guys because they skied down the slopes near the wedding chapel just before the ceremony - they were not even wearing gloves, a cap or an additional jacket - OMG! Tracey had a wonderful hand made dress by Francesca Miranda, Columbia - South America, really stunning! We loved all the personal details Tracey and Kelly added to their wedding, for example their extraordinary place cards. They are having horses at home and they have similar name plates - such a great idea to bring some Texan flair to this Austrian winter wedding. Can you imagine carrying all this stuff by plane and train from Texas to Austria? Respect! Tracey and Kelly are members of the Bruderschaft St. Christoph and decided to celebrate the wedding in their nice and cosy chapel. Afterwards they had a Glühwein-reception at the Arlberg Hospiz Hotel and then they had dinner and partied all night long at the Arlberg Hospiz Alm. Of course they also visited the impressive wine cellar with their guests and enjoyed one of the really, really big wine bottles.

Portrait shoots | United States meet snowy St. Anton

January 23, 2014

Between Christmas and New Year we had the pleasure to meet so many wonderful people from all over the States. They all travelled to Austria for Tracey and Kelly`s gorgeous wedding (will be on our blog soon) and enjoyed some days in snowy St. Anton in Tyrol. We already met Tracey and Kelly last year during their winter holidays and created their engagement photos. Just a few weeks afterwards Tracey told me that lots of their friends love the photos we took and they would like to do a photo shoot with us as well when they come to Austria for their wedding the next winter season. Time really flies and as their wedding came closer we organized a whole shooting day for all the couples, single and family portraits. It was really great, all their guests were so friendly and we had such a good time with them all. In the morning it started snowing really heavily so we incorporated a cabin at the shooting location for some pictures so our couples did not get too wet. But they were all really brave and enjoyed the snow to the full. They stepped into snowy areas and posed without coats even when it was pretty windy and snowing heavily - thanks to all of you for doing such a great job! We planned a short break over midday to warm up a bit as Phil and I spent 4 to 5 hours in the snow at about 0 degrees celcius. After that break we were really lucky because the sky started to clear up and for a short time slot, just as we were taking photos of Laura and Robby, they are engaged and getting married this February in Texas, the sun came out and created such beautiful light. But even when the sun was not there it was great to work with you all and hopefully we could create everlasting memories!

Arlberg Wedding at Gasthof Post, Lech and Hospiz Alm, St. Christoph | Stag & Butterfly Theme

September 02, 2013

We love emotions and this beautiful wedding was full of it! Sarah and Matthew are such a lovely couple, they have their roots in New Zealand as well as in England and they both met the first time in St. Anton in Tyrol while they were on holidays. As they spend a lot of time in Tyrol enjoying the nature and the montains it was quite obvious that they decided to celebrate their love in this area as well. So great that most of their families and friends from all over the world could manage to come to Tyrol, Austria and share this great event with them. They decided to have a beautiful outdoor wedding in the garden of Gasthof Post***** in Lech but unfortunately the weather did not play along, it started raining cats and dogs so we had to activate plan B and the ceremony took place inside. But the ceremony was touching and emotional and it was so great to see that the weather could not affect the atmosphere in any kind! They celebrated their love and that´s the most important thing on a wedding day. Sarah and Matthew are amazing party people as well, you cannot imagine how they and their families and friends rocked the dance floor at the Arlberg Hospiz Alm in St. Christoph that night. And at the end of this great day we had to do a view shots with the couple in the amazing wine cellar at the Hospiz Alm - what a stunning location. And you should not miss their beautiful wedding stationery - they had a stag and butterfly theme - one of the bridesmaids is graphic desinger in New Zealand and created these amazing pieces of art for the whole event - I am absolutely in love with it!
