Want a theme wedding? How about getting married in a Glacier

29 Mar

Off late the concept of theme weddings has caught the fancy of Indians and I keep hearing of  beach weddings, palace / fort weddings, destinations weddings etc etc. But during our visit to the Matterhorn Glacier Palace (Read – Journey into the Centre of a Glacier) we came across a unique venue for a wedding – the centre of the glacier.

Yes, you read it correct. The centre of the Matterhorn Glacier Palace has an ice hall to get married in and have some other unique elements required for a theme wedding –

Panoramic Views from Little Matterhorn

20 Mar

Our  second day in Matterhorn was like opening a big gift hamper where we just didn’t know what was in it and every time we pulled a gift out, it seemed to be even better than the previous gift. So after an eventful morning of playing in the snow and walking in a Glacier Palace, we went out to finally see the panoramic Alpine views from Little Matterhorn.

A Tryst with the Matterhorn in Zermatt

13 Mar

Our second day in Zermatt was completely packed with numerous activities with a lot of “first time” and “must try” items of my travel list. But the two things that I was most excited about were – up-close and personal views of the Matterhorn and my first step in actual snow. 🙂 We met with Tanya in the morning and she gave all of us our all-inclusive ski passes that included trips on the gondola and ski lifts, a visit to the glacial palace, actual skiing and even  a train ride to Gornergrat. And with these passes in our pockets, we all embarked for our epic day trip up to the Klein Matterhorn.
