There is something so graceful about a vow renewal. There’s an invisible charm when couples who have faced the challenges of a wedding navigating ups and down, family, career, children; all at the same tie, yet retaining the love between them.

After their wedding in 2020, Mélanie & François wanted to relive the excitement of their special day in 2021 in their vow renewal. And what’s the best way to do it? Hire your same wedding planner for your vow renewal! That’s what they did. Savina Uldry, a wedding designer and Owner of an event planning agency – All You Need About from Switzerland was the brain behind their then wedding and now vow renewal. We love the unique details of this intimate ceremony with a touch of nude, white, and gold.

Mélanie and François had a beautiful tented wedding with a boho surfer chic style near the Lac Leman in September 2020. For the vow renewal, they wanted something totally different with snow and mountains. Savina suggested them to go to The Chedi in Andermatt. The Chedi Andermatt, Switzerland, a 5-star property right at the heart of the Swiss Alps vow renewal couldn’t be more beautiful! Switzerland is something straight out of a fairytale and combined with its sentiment, it’s no wonder the couple chose it for this special occasion.
