Immediately upon seeing this wedding, I was completely drawn in. I am so happy to feature this lovely, organic, and intimate wedding in Sankt Petersinsel. Shot by the super talented Elaine Chang Photography, every single detail of this wedding is artistic and meaningful… from the florals (designed by the bride and her friend the night before) to the bridal jewelry.
If you’re unfamiliar with the area, Sankt Petersinsel (Île Saint-Pierre) is a small, quiet peninsula situated on Lake Biel in the canton of Bern. Political theorist Jean-Jacques Rousseau said he spent the happiest time of his life on Sankt Petersinsel. The 11th-century monastery where he resided is now a renowned restaurant and hotel, which is where the couple held their wedding. I love that the bride designed most of the wedding herself — you can really sense that it added to the intimacy and authenticity of the ceremony.
I’ll stop here and let these dreamy photos inspire a small but sweet wedding of your own…
