In addition to experiencing the breathtaking Swiss landscapes with your beloved, you might consider to hold a civil marriage ceremony in Switzerland to formalize your union legally.
Swiss law facilitates the process for international couples to obtain a legal civil marriage license that is recognized in their home country. Formal preparations can commence as early as six months prior to your desired wedding date. However, please note that the documents typically require a minimum of three months to be processed.
With our established connections at the local government civil office, we can assist in securing an available date, venue, and time for your civil marriage ceremony in Switzerland.
It’s important to note that no wedding planner can handle the paperwork on your behalf. Similar to applying for a passport, you must personally visit your nearest Swiss consulate to file the necessary documents.
Rest assured, we will provide you with the guidance and direction needed to obtain your legal civil marriage license, ensuring a smooth and hassle-free process.

We were fortunate to have Cindy and Lukas not only as our exceptional wedding photographers but also as our incredible wedding planners. Their dual expertise made our Switzerland wedding more than we ever imagined. Guests hailed it as the best wedding they had ever attended. Despite living in different countries, Cindy effortlessly connected with us, understanding our wishes and expectations through regular emails and phone calls. Their photography exceeded every expectation, creating personalized photographs capturing our personalities and precious moments like a friend would. Professional yet relaxed, humorous shots immortalized our memories. We are forever grateful to our fabulous wedding planner and photographer extraordinaire. Thank you, Sam & Craig.
