Alpine weddings in France

Celebrate your French Alpine wedding in style with an intimate, truly bespoke ceremony in the French resort of Les Arcs.

Enjoy the ski slopes in winter or the breathtaking mountain backdrop during the summer whilst staying in our boutique catered chalet – Cairn.

Here at Whitebeam Chalets we want you to enjoy and savour every moment of your special day. Create memories during a long weekend (or week) rather than rushing through your wedding in just one day.

Let us transform your wedding in the Alps into a once in a lifetime experience that you and your guests will remember.

Have you ever pictured your bride in a wedding dress skiing down the slopes? Or sitting on a ski lift perhaps?

Whitebeam Chalets can make this happen!

French Alps Wedding on the Ski Lift

Why choose Peisey Nancroix in Les Arcs France for your unique celebrations?

Chalet Cairn is located in the Vanoise National Park (Peisey Nancroix, Les Arcs) in the heart of the mountains, at over 1500 metres.

Chalet Cairn is so unique because it is nestled a private wonderland with unbroken views over the Vanoise National Park – whilst also being just a 5 minute drive away from the world famous Paradiski ski slopes.

With over 400km of skiing across the ski resorts of Les Arcs and La Plagne you’d have a hard time getting bored.

Pesiey Nancroix is a fantastic location to combine a wedding and holiday, for all interests and abilities.

With alpine skiing, nordic skiing and snowshoeing in the winter, and mountain biking, rafting, hiking, horse riding, road riding and more in the summer it is fair to say that activities are covered. But that’s not all available to you.

There is stunning wildlife for you to see, photograph and paint – you can’t feel closer to nature than this. Giving guests of every age a different experience during the celebrations. And it’s all right on your doorstep!

The areas of Peisey Nancroix and Vallandry are easily accessible with a transfer service from the major airports including Geneva, Lyon, Grenoble and Chambery.

As well as the Eurostar train line from London that comes into Bourg Saint Maurice through the winter.

Chalet Cairn – accommodation and wedding venue

Chalet Cairn is an open plan, luxuriously comfortable chalet with 6 en-suite rooms plus a master bed suite for the happy couple.

Easily sleeping 15 people, this is a stunning chalet for your bridal party and guests to stay in.

We can easily accommodate your whole party close to Chalet Cairn as there are extra accommodation options at hand, making Whitebeam the hub for your wedding in the Alps.

Chalet Cairn has a hot tub and sauna area, heated boot room, large living space and big dining area. It really has the wow factor.

Catering during holiday and wedding day

On the special day itself breakfast can be provided for chalet guests.

We can offer flexible options to meet budget requests for the evening catering for the whole party.

Pork belly - chalet food at Whitebeam

In our experience having the wedding breakfast in one of the local restaurants offers something a little bit special and different on the day.

However we can also host the wedding breakfast along with the evening buffet at the chalet with anything from fondue to a 5 course dinner with Champagne.

It all depends on your wants, needs and your budget.

Why choose Whitebeam to host your Alpine Wedding?

Having been in the area for over 10 years Whitebeam have contacts at the many local French and English suppliers.

We married in France ourselves so we know that arrangements and contacting suppliers can be a difficult task from abroad.

Organisation can be a worry so we want to take this hassle away from you.

FREE OF CHARGE we offer guidance and expertise to help you find photographers, cake makers, florists, ceremony venues and restaurants.

We believe you should NOT be charged extra to use our chalet for a wedding. You will be quoted the same as any other holiday group.

Affordability is another reason to find out more we can offer!

Is a French Alpine wedding for you?

Take a look at some of the questions we are regularly asked when it comes to weddings in the Alps:

Can I wear a wedding dress?

Of course you can. Just consider things like transportation and mobility.
If the bride is skiing down the slopes consider the length of the dress. It may also be sensible to wear thermals underneath.

Can my non skiing guests get up the piste?

Yes. There are locations that guests can access. Rent snowshoes to be safe, as snow can get deep in places. They will only need to get a walkers pass to access the lifts.

We haven’t forgotten the little ones either. Just make sure they are wrapped up warm.

Can the bride and groom sleep in different locations the night before?

There are some hotels nearby and little ‘gites’ that we can rent for the night before the wedding.

Or stay with your friends and family in a different chalet you have rented. We’re not too strict on the number of ushers in one room the night before the wedding!

Can I have an isle to walk down?

In winter we make an isle from ski poles. In the summer there are lots of options within the stunning environment around Peisey Nancroix.

You can pretty much have anything from a isle of ski poles to an isle of fresh flowers, but we draw the line at an isle of marmots!
