A Winter Wedding in Sestriere

But now it is really time to speak about Clare and Rob’s special day! Clare and Rob are a sweet British couple who live in Brussels. We met them more than one year ago, and we literally love them! A sweet and wonderful couple who really wanted to celebrate their winter wedding in Italian Alps. Clare and Rob wanted an event in the snow, tasting that frosty feeling and crystalline air you can get to the Alps only.
They opted for Sestriere and a fabulous Winter Resort located just a few steps from Ski Slopes, overlooking Giant Slalom Downhill slope.

The hotel is located literally next door to the town hall. Clare, bridesmaids, and her dad giving her away could walk there easily. The day was clear, sunny, and even warm. Warm days to the Alps are so lovely that you can even stay outdoor for a while, taking pictures and having a fun aperitif after the ceremony.
Clare looked great in her amazing wedding dress with faux fur details… lovely! She had a perfect look for a Winter Wedding in Italian Alps.

Her bridesmaids looked beautiful, too, in a light blue dress matching snow, ice, and sky colors. They perfectly matched Clare’s nail polish…. light blue… well bride needs to have something blue… always!

She opted for white flowers with some winter greenery and a touch of blue for her floral decorations, but most of all… brown elements such as pine cones and branches plus dozens of candles creating a romantic winter atmosphere.

After the civil ceremony in Sestriere town hall, guests led back to the hotel for an excellent aperitif on the hotel’s tower overlooking the slopes. A rustic aperitif of the valley with Prosecco served in the snow to keep it chilled.

Clare and Rob took the chance to take some stunning pictures in the snow…. they could not miss the opportunity with such a great day! Some steps in the snow and, most of all, sweet pictures with sleigh dogs. We can say that this is the essence of a Winter Wedding in the Italian Alps.

Clare and Rob love dogs, and they really wanted to take some pictures with them.

They did not miss the chance to ride on the dog-sleight day before and the day after the wedding… a right side activity for non-ski fans.

Once reached the guests they joined the aperitif and took some amazing photos overlooking the Alps at sunset with family and friends.

A great night in Piemonte Alps

Wedding dinner was served in the restaurant of the hotel, still overlooking the mountains and its valleys. It was a gourmand dinner with valley dishes and unique local Piemonte wines. Clare and Rob wanted a naked wedding cake to cut at the end of the reception.
A great DJ played fantastic music for the group, who had great fun up to late at night!
