We asked Steph and Gary, our bride and groom, to tell us how they are feeling in the run up to their Ski 2 wedding this week. Here’s what they had to say:
What are you most excited about?
We are most excited about having all of our friends and family together for the whole week doing what we love! As well as getting married! We have looked forward to this week since exactly a year ago when we came to visit Champoluc and skied the area and decided on venues etc. We absolutely fell in love with the place! That day seems like a dream now!
How did the ski wedding idea come about?
We both love our winter holidays in the mountains. Gary snowboards and I ski, which means I can go a lot faster in style. So much so that on our 4th date (yes, I am that person, I counted!) we went to Glenshee in Scotland (March 2013) on a ski date! 5 hours from where we live!
When Gary proposed in Kitzbuhel (January 2015), at the bottom of the Hahnenkamm run no less, we just knew then that it had to be a ski wedding!
Are any of your guests first time skiers?
There are a few of our guests who are setting off on their maiden ski, I would say we are split 50/50 to skiers and non-skiers! Lots of the guests are looking forward to skiing in their wedding wear!
Other than the ski wedding, what exciting things have you got planned for the week?
We are having a fancy dress party on Tuesday which is combined with a 2nd birthday, so that should be fun! We’ve got little ones, nieces/nephews and god children that are skiing for their first time… they too are so excited! On Friday we are having a BBQ at Lo Bistrot and combining that with a 60th birthday party, so that’s quite cool!
Thank you to Steph and Gary for taking the time to talk to us in between last minute champagne-buying in France. If you are interested in organising a Ski 2 wedding for next season, please contact our wedding planner, Fiona
