I went to a most wonderful wedding in the Swiss Alps. The wedding was on an Alp, in central Switzerland.
The fields around us were full of wild flowers making it a carpet of colour. We sat on hay bails under umbrellas.
The young couple was wed under the sun with the local ‘yodel choir’ singing incredibly harmonious songs. It all just fitted in so perfectly.
The choir wore their traditional dress, all embroidered. The lead singer, the only lady had such an intricate top on.
There were two ‘Alphorn blaeser’ playing the instruments, with the goats watching on the side.
The flowers in the ‘May reef’ were a real work of art.
During the ceremony, the cows from the Alp came up to be milked. I think the whole atmosphere was nearly too perfect! The sound of music on steroids.
One of the ‘Yodler’ having a little well deserved brake.
This was the table decoration, all fresh herbs with wonderful roses scattered through them.
