Say YES in Austria with A Baroque Fete. Out now on Strictly Weddings
Swoon-worthy spring destination wedding inspiration at a fairytale castle near Vienna, Austria
Today is one of those days when I just can't stop smiling! Our ultraviolet destination wedding inspiration near Vienna, Austria is NOW LIVE on Strictly Weddings. And I mean, not only just out there, but also full of praise from the editors of this luxury wedding blog.
My very special THANKS go to today's birthday girl, Nikol Bodnarova, who so lovingly created and curated this fine art wedding inspiration gallery. It's quite overwhelming trying to choose favourites when I Iove every single photo.
On the outskirts of Vienna, right between Austria and Slovakia, this jewel of a baroque castle - Schloss Hof - has been witness not only to countless I DO's, but also to imperial celebrations in the 18th century, as it was owned by none other than Empress Maria Theresa.
The palace with its vast domains and beautiful gardens seems like the perfect spot for couples coming from abroad to tie the knot in Austria - very close to the airport and Vienna, if offers the grandeur of a baroque palace combined with many outdoor possibilities for different festivities. One unique feature of this castle is the light-flooded, white ballroom - which allows for any type of a colour concept - and its Sala Terrena facing the interior gardens and fountains.
I had the pleasure to lead a highly talented team of wedding professionals from Austria and Slovakia, who were extremely passionate about showing the world how a perfectly styled wedding could look like at this imperial Austrian residence. We went for the trend colour of the year - ultraviolet - to add a pop of colour, with amazing spring florals by Ponk Rentals, and a gold-and-violet wedding cake fit for a king and queen, from the new luxury collection of cake designer Schnabulerie.
We chose to stick to a very clean design concept, to underline the elegance and beauty of this imposing venue and of course, the embroidered lace dress by Crystal Design Couture and embellished Bella Belle Shoes, that doesn't need further introductions.
Our motto for this inspirational shoot: "A wedding must be two things: classy and highly emotional".
THANK YOU to my amazing team!
Thank you for your patience and passion, for your creativity and love of beauty, for your contagious enthusiasm and rare professionalism!
