This wedding was really evolving and it has its story. Before all else, those clients contacted me in 2019, looking for a wedding agency, that helps them organise a wedding in Hotel Štekl by Hluboká castle in 2020. In the beginning, we could not come to an agreement budget-wise, I was not able to fulfil their wishes and requirements, so they found a local coordinator. After that, they contacted me again a year later, with the fact that the local agency did not fulfil their ideas and at the same time they already knew that even with the budget it was realistic. So we shook hands and made a deal.
Jasmín a Ben live in Switzerland, but the bride has Czech-Slovak roots. I was immensely enjoying working with them, they are extremely nice and polite people. I always find it delightful doing business with people like this.
The assignment was simple, joyful summer colours with peachy-pink shades in slightly rustic style to make it suitable for the castle. I adapted their original concept to this and added a drop of elegance.
We took the ceremony untraditionally, instead of the gate we decorated the fountain, which served as a great backdrop.
The clients wished to show the bride’s roots on the wedding. Her brother and her father walked Jasmín down to the aisle to the ceremony in Slovak folk costumes.
The most striking element of the decoration was the flower clouds, which we hung on the ceiling. Of course, there is also an original set of wedding printed matter in the design and shades of the wedding.
The wish for a wedding cake was originally a naked cake, but we beautified it a bit with a golden touch and live flowers, which perfectly complemented and underlined the softness of the decoration. Guests enjoyed a great sweet bar.
The biggest challenge was the decoration of the marquee, which had to be built due to insufficient capacity for the banquet. From previous experience, it was clear to me that we had to invest in the marquee to look nice. It was towering enough, suitable for the banquet and at the same time, there was room for a lounge and dance floor.
I designed a combination of round and long tables into the marquee with transparent ceiling, the rustic concept was perfectly tuned by beige tablecloths on round tables and a brand new rustic chair with an intertwined backrest. The large space was in two color shades complemented by flower cushions.
The wedding was great fun. The wedding guests from Switzerland were extremely proactive and prepared a lot of games, presentations for the newlyweds and generally tried to contribute to a great atmosphere. The funny thing was that Jasmín and Ben told me that the Swiss usually don’t dance at weddings and that they are used to their many-hour cocktails, which are extremely boring from my point of view. In the end, I convinced them to tried-and-tested the entertainment concept, and it was a huge success. Swiss guests danced all night.
