Mountain Wedding Elopement in Alpbachtal, Austria

For this elopement, we headed up the slopes in Alpbachtal, a beautiful town in western Austria, to create some magic for Chiara and Domi. As mountain wedding photographers who also help with planning the adventure, there’s nothing better than being given free reign to make a beautiful experience happen. And that’s exactly what we did here.

Perfect Details at this Mountain Wedding Elopement

We absolutely loved working with Eva Baemann to design the elements of this elopement. She is a masterful florist who now trains other florists in this area. She was up for the challenge of creating something light and simple enough that we could carry it up the mountain, but striking enough to make the occasion feel really special. The florals she created for the triangle frames are truly stunning — a riot of wildness and colour! Silhouetted against the mountains, the altarpieces were so striking. It was the perfect setting for a mountain wedding elopement.

One of the more dramatic elements of this elopement shoot was the wedding cake. This was also specially designed for the occasion by the amazing Astrid Vetter at Torten Nascherei, a cake shop that uses only the finest local ingredients. We wanted something simple but modern, to fit with the bohemian beauty of the other parts of this mountain wedding elopement. 

When everything came together, even the weather cooperated, giving us the most glorious clear day with jaw-dropping views over peak after peak of the surrounding mountains. It was nothing short of wonderful! For a look at a different take on a mountain wedding elopement — time by an alpine lake – check out this elopement at Bergsee.
