Ain't no mountain high enough............

Jessica & Pete wanted to do something that represented their love of the outdoors the mountains and freedom.

I was contacted by Mont Blanc Weddings & asked if I would like to photograph Pete & Jessica's Wedding in the French Alps?

I immediately organised to have a Skype chat with Jessica who told me about her plans to get married in the middle of a glacier in the middle of the French alps.

Due to the fact that I spent many years climbing and hiking mountains & the Mont Blanc I jumped at the chance to be part of this wedding adventure.

Soon the months passed by and it was the day before the wedding day where I finally got to meet Pete & Jessica in person.

They could not of been a more interesting couple who were not only extremely fun but also so interested in mountains and the valley of Chamonix.

We did a pre shoot on the Brevent mountains which was amazing to see them both taking in the huge panoramas of the mighty Chamonix valley.

The next day it was time to get our Crampons on and Scale the glacier with our guide, humanist celebrant & Flore the wedding planner.

It was quite hard going for myself as I had to scale through the ice and snow and carrying my large cameras and lenses was tough.........but so worth it as you can see from the pictures.

Once we were above the ice lake we made it to the outcrop and soon we were looking over Glacier and rocks.

However more adventure was on it's away.

I suddenly heard a cracking noise and then felt my hair standing up on end! It was the weirdest feeling ever.

I also looked at Jessica's hair and it was also standing up......

I asked our guide what should we do and in a calm voice he said don't worry it will pass........

With the vows exchanged there was a clap of thunder and we made our way down the glacier and to the lift station.......

Jessica & Peter were now married and not only that they and we all had nearly been electrocuted!

Weddings in the mountains? they are always an adventure.

Enjoy the pictures.
