Switzerland is a tiny country of some 7.7 million people surrounded by four far-larger neighbours: France, Germany, Italy and Austria.
Yet despite its small size, it seems everyone has an opinion about what life is like in Switzerland.
So Swiss brides and grooms marry at a registry office and obtain proper documents and decide over their Swiss marriage ceremony.
Many Swiss brides opt for a civil ceremony followed by a party but church weddings are still popular.
A Swiss wedding is a medley of customs, new and old and entertainment, music, dance and songs.
Switzerland is most famous for its mountains, cheese, chocolate, cows, and watches.
Of course these things are part of everyday life: check out the mouth-watering display of chocolate bars at any grocery store.
Switzerland's capital is Bern, however Zurich is its most populous city. Switzerland is famous for the Alps, which run through the central and southern areas of the country.
The smaller Jura mountains take up the northeast border with France.
