Immediately after our first meeting with Klara, I knew I would be organizing a wedding that would be unforgettable. The assignment was clear: a romantic wedding one could only dream of. First, we started discussing the location. The appointment echoed castle, and we chose a newly renovated renaissance castle in the end, Chateau Clara Futura, not far from Prague. When choosing this castle, a big part of the decision process involved the fact that it had a beautifully renovated chapel and the engaged couple envisioned a Catholic wedding ceremony.So, we had the location, we set the date, and we got to work.
First, we designed a concept with our florist. Originally the bride wanted a classic pink-golden color combination, but we ended up choosing a trendy shade of Mauve, bearing in mind the color palette. We complemented it with white, dusty rose, cappuccino and golden accessories. This was the first time I worked with the Mauve palette, and I think the results were pretty amazing. The decoration felt romantic yet timeless and luxurious at the same time. The flowers are in the style of Fine art. The bouquet was adorned with a silk ribbon in a shade of Mauve.
The bride also chose a classic styling that fit the conservative Catholic ceremony and castle surroundings perfectly. Her hair was styled into a bun, she wore a beautiful lace dress with an overskirt, in a classic cut by Pronovias. A picture-perfect hairstyle was taken care of by the one and only Kamila. We couldn’t forget the Lang shoes from @jimmychoo, of course. The couple chose their rings in the jewelry firm Eppi. A blue suit was made for the groom in Windsors, including the bow in a shade of Mauve.
The boys ordered some light brown suits from Asos. The witness, to differentiate himself, chose an outfit in the shade of Bordo. The bridesmaids chose dresses with a glitter top and a bottom chiffon skirt in a shade of cappuccino. The female witness then chose a dress in a Mauve shade. The young bridesmaids were unbelievably cute in some beautiful little dresses from Claudiasprincess.
We prepared the print-related materials from overseas, from the brilliant Darling and pearl. We chose a semi-custom collection, with a combination of floral and watercolor motifs with dusty rose shades. The envelope was decorated with a floral motif and a wax seal. The technology we used is called letterpress. The ceremonial banquet had printed numbers for each table, name tags, and menus. This collaboration made us very happy; everything went smoothly, as it should, the owner Lauren had no problems with the Czech diacritics and patiently took care of all of our requirements. She offers very elegant, beautifully made announcements, just as I like it.
The chapel of St. Mary Magdalena, where the wedding ceremony took place, was amply decorated with excellent floral arrangements. A singer accompanied by an organ was present for the service. The ceremony was truly touching, and tears flowed. The groom had a witness, and four young boys, all of them had boutonnieres in their breast pockets. The bride had a witness, for which the florist arranged some flowers and four bridesmaids, each of them adorned with a floral bracelet.
After the wedding ceremony, the newly-weds walked through a lane, at the end of which they freed some nuptial pigeons. After having taken a group photo and some group portraits the banquet could begin.
The bride wished to have the banquet in a garden. It was quite a risky decision to make because the weather can be quite unpredictable in summer. We ended up waiting for a chance summer storm to pass. We have come to expect such things over the years, and we knew how to deal with it. The banquet was delayed by an hour; we continued after. I must say that having an open-air dinner is magical, but you have to start later on, due to the heat. The design was a combination of tall and short arrangements for the round tables. Louisa chairs were new for us; the wedding table was styled perfectly. White porcelain with a golden line, pink-gold underlying plates and white-gold China took it to complete perfection. The whole concept was finished up with linen serviettes in an elegant shade of Mauve. The floral arrangements complemented with small candles were crafted in a luxurious fine art style using a colorful palette.
Clara Futura, a chef, prepared two fantastic menus, from which the guests could choose from on the couple’s website. The cherry on top was the wedding cake, which was to be served in place of dessert. We prepared two sweet corners for our guests. For the ladies, a corner with delectable delicacies such as macarons, cupcakes, cake pops, meringues and other sweet pieces and then, a sweet corner for the men, some fantastic chocolate truffles with liquor, chocolate-rum meringues, along with some rum – Diplomatico, finished by authentic Cuban cigars. During the whole day, Prosecco was present.
After the banquet, party band kicked off the party. Their lead singer Uliana is stunning! She’s a one-of-a-kind show-woman and was able to stir up a jolly good mood. The guests had the option to take photos in the photo corner they had many a fun prop to choose from. We also prepared a framed picture with a map of the stars from the day of the wedding, where the guests could write little messages, thank you Naše hvězdy!
The groom prepared a great surprise in the end, along with the boys, they dressed into typical Slovak folk clothing and performed a lovely dance for the bride. In the end, everyone joined them, and it was great fun! Of course, we didn’t forget the fireworks; we had to. This wedding was now engraved deep into our hearts; we remember it fondly.
