Whether you have always wanted to get married surrounded by a glistening blanket of snow, or to say 'I do' in the heart of the Seychelles on a picture-perfect December morning, winter weddings promise to be truly unforgettable.
Here at Kempinski, we have hotels in world-class locations all around the world, each with their own exceptional facilities and a team of events experts on hand to make your day one you will cherish forever. Take a look at our finest venues, best suited for couples that wish to celebrate their special day in the winter months.
The alpine resort of St. Moritz is a truly beautiful destination, with its majestic snowy mountains, enchanting frozen lakes and elegant town centre. While weddings during the winter months tend to be on the colder side here, there is nothing more romantic and pure than this stylish Swiss town.
In St. Moritz, a must for all newlyweds includes a romantic horse-drawn carriage ride along Lake St. Moritz, and when evening falls couples can gaze out at the shining stars together. The winter chill is certainly worth it thanks to the stunning scenery. We suggest brides bring a cover-up for photographs in the snow - an elegant faux-fur stole can look beautiful.
At Kempinski Grand Hotel des Bains, a team of expert wedding planners, florists, caterers and more will be on hand, and venues are available to suit celebrations of all sizes. We will be delighted to help you coordinate your wedding with the season - whether you would love to incorporate festive colours in your décor, add a Christmas tree to the ballroom or ensure everyone has a hot drink to welcome them on arrival, anything can be arranged by Kempinski staff.
Defined by its incomparable beauty, the Seychelles Islands offer the ideal location for any bride and groom seeking winter sun. Baie Lazare on Mahé Island can provide the ideal setting for a winter wedding - even in January, temperatures are around 24 to 26 degrees Celsius.
In this tropical paradise, ceremonies are best held outside. Walk along the white, sandy beaches dotted with palm trees towards the serene Indian Ocean, and enjoy your first kiss as a married couple on the shore. Guests can enjoy dancing and celebrating long into the warm evening at Kempinski Seychelles Resort Baie Lazare.
For a winter wedding that is filled with glamour and sophistication, choose Abu Dhabi. During winter, temperatures are in the mid-twenties - a pleasant change from the highs the city experiences in June and July.
Known for specialising in royal weddings, Emirates Palace is the perfect location to host a fairy-tale wedding. Crystal-clear seas; white, velvety sands; and unforgettable sights, such as the Grand Mosque, lie just moments away, while the hotel itself is renowned worldwide for its awe-inspiring exterior and equally luxurious interior. Every detail of your romantic day will be taken care of, with Kempinski wedding planners, florists and hotel staff on hand 24/7 - your happily ever after starts here.
Transforming into a winter wonderland, there has never been a place more suited to a white wedding than Vienna. With two UNESCO world heritage sites, ornate buildings at every turn and the atmospheric Vienna Woods on the outskirts of the city, there is so much to see before and after your wedding.
Make the most of the frosty surroundings and choose from the many stunning locations around Vienna for your wedding photos. Make sure everyone has warm clothing available and don't be afraid to run through photo ideas with your photographer before the big day. With less light, it is always great to have a trial run to make sure the images are as perfect as possible.
