Christoffer and Vanessa live in London but they have decided to get married in Switzerland on July 1st, the country where Vanessa grew up.
They dreamed of a beautiful bohemian chic destination wedding in Switzerland, in the middle of nature with delicate details and a refined touch but at the same time wished it was clear for all guests that came from Stockholm, London, Milano and Lugano that this was a mixed wedding with a perfect mix of their Swedish and Swiss cultures.
The wedding ceremony was celebrated in the magnificent church of Santa Maria del Sasso, situated in the romantic village of Morcote and with a breathtaking balcony overlooking Lake Ceresio, where before the ceremony guests could relax and enjoy a typical Sweedish “Fika moment” with so many typical sweets from cinnamons buns to custom paper bags with traditional Haribos and other types of candies. The church was decorated in a simple and delicate way with a lot of candles and little green daisies that have made a perfect background for their moment of yes, as Vanessa’s desires.
The reception was made in a small typical Swiss restaurant that remains high in the mountains between pastures and horses. Everything was amazing, and fun, Vanessa & Christoffer have given full freedom to their very good toastmaster Sven and Liliana who involved a lot of people with the desire to make special speeches to them. All the speeches were then systematically accompanied by lots of Sweedish snaps – with good Swedish vodka of course – during dinner.
To conclude, the typical Princesstårta was served as a wedding cake!
