Prague Ballroom Wedding from White-Prague Wedding Agency + Lukas Konarik

This wedding holds the trifecta of my biggest obsessions… beautiful weddings photographed brilliantly by Lukas Konarik, no less, Eastern European culture in stunning Prague, and a couple who is so obviously in love, it’s like a breath of fresh air and 360 days of sunshine all wrapped up in one. And the party to celebrate their matrimony was top notch thanks to White-Prague Wedding Agency!

From the planner… Katherine & Eren Kemal from Sleaford, United Kingdom, were married in Prague at a Catholic ceremony in St. Giles church in Prague on 10th August 2013. They are young, so-in-love sweet couple and they had been planning their destination wedding for over a year. They have hired a us at White – Prague Wedding Agency to assist them with the planning, but Katherine still showed her creative side and her and her artsy friends have made lot of things and decorations for the Wedding – Eren said to us before the Wedding –”Katherine has made so many things you won’t believe it.” Katherine knew exactly what she wished for on her wedding day and created a perfect, beautiful concept. We were very happy to be able to help to bring the concept to life. The colours were Navy, Coral, Gold and White.

Katherine has arrived to the ceremony with her father in a vintage white Rolls Royce. The breathtaking Bridal gown was from Angelica Bridal in Islington who custom made the cathedral veil.

Four gorgeous looking bridesmaids were waiting for the Bride outside of the church with the the cutest flower girl and page boy. The Bridesmaids dresses were hand made to order by Hannah Jane designs base in Arklow Ireland . Hannah was the rockabilly bridesmaid with tattoos.

After the traditional Catholic ceremony (performed by English speaking priest) the receiving line and group photo shoot took place in the courtyard of the church – beautiful fairytale garden. Before heading towards the reception, the guests were given pair of sunglasses – as the newlyweds did not want to “blind them with their love,” as the beautifully framed sign placed next to the sunglasses said and made everyone smile. The newlyweds also gave all their guests coral bubbles that they hand painted themselves back in England.

A vintage tram that we recommended as different way of transport brought the guests to the wedding reception. While sipping on sparkling wine, the guests enjoyed the historical sights of Prague. While the 55 guests were having sangria as welcome drinks at the reception venue, the Bride and Groom had a relaxed portrait photo shoot around the Prague Castle with their photographer.

The reception took place in Neo Baroque Ballroom of a hotel in the centre of Prague. The newlyweds were welcomed by a Czech Wedding tradition of breaking the plate. A plate is broken at the feet of the bride and groom and they must sweep the chips together. This tradition has its roots in two superstitions; that chips bring happiness and the newlyweds show a will to cooperate by jointly sweeping the chips away.

One of the cutest things of the day were the Bride and Groom having their dinner at a sweetheart’s table – just the two of them. Food was important to Kat and Eren and they chose the four course Wedding menu at a pre-wedding visit a few months before the wedding.

Katherine loves birds- the guests were putting wedding cards into a bird‘s cage and she hand wrote the bird’s shaped name cards.

Amazing candy bar was situated in one of the niches of the ballroom and was the centre of the attention. From the Bride: “All the the sweets were ordered on line but I used east of India stickers and postcards to create individual labels and quotes to make the sweets more personalized and fit in with our theme. We had jellies, popcorn and candy floss to remind our guest of childhood memories. We made ring box for the candy ring pops and pillow boxes with pocking candy and vintage sweets hidden inside.”

The Macaroon Wedding cake from our amazing pastry chef was to die for: Katherine: “Our amazing cake was chosen as we love macaroons and wanted a wow cake that wouldn’t go to waste and it didn‘t.” The cake topper with a “Better together” sign was from Better Off Wed from Etsy and was custom made in the Wedding colours.

As an evening snack Kat and Eren chose a burger & chip buffet with the glass cokes. It was a real hit hit for the guest too. They loved the idea.

The Brides bouquet was made by her friend and consisted of over 300 brooches, rings and crystals given from friends and family members and special ones from Katherine‘s grandmother who couldn’t be with me her the day. The bridesmaids bouquets were all made from buttons, pearls and 1 brooch each representing their individual style and taste.

The reception tables were decorated with coral and navy flowers. Our motto was- “to make it different.” The main flowers were Gladiolus, Dahlias and Roses.

Katherine had a picture of her grandmother and grandfather on their wedding day at the back of the guest book so they could be there with her on her wedding day.

One of the most touching moments was the when Katherine danced with her father to… and her friends were throwing confetti from the balcony on them..

Prague Wedding from Pavlína Jarošová

Get ready for some all out fabulous eye candy in the form of this amazingly classic, retro and all around amazing wedding sent into us by Pavlína Jarošová. These high school sweethearts were married in a gorgeous garden surrounded by old palaces and medieval houses. After the ceremony they continued the party at a nearby restaurant where all their hard work and planning paid off big time. See it all right here. 

Don’t miss their fab film by AFILM:

From the Bride… We met in high school, where we attended the same classes. We would study together and then watch black and white movies or go dancing somewhere, preferably to jazz or swing music. Experiments with exotic cuisine were nothing unusual. After five such years, we got engaged! Since the beginning, we planned to arrange the whole wedding ourselves – no special agency or wedding coordinators were to be involved. It was all supposed to be about us and for us and those close to us. The wedding process was very intriguing, filled with humorous episodes and fun.

We chose a beautiful garden for the wedding ceremony, a piece of land inconspicuously hidden in the very same place where the oldest palaces and medieval houses of Prague are situated. It is a place where we used to go for our dates. Back then, we would make half-joking remarks that it was the place to get married one day. We did not have a clue how true it would turn out to be later on. Right next to the garden, there is a small boutique hotel, decorated with caricatures of famous composers and other motives connected with music. There is also a magnificent restaurant in the hotel. We were captivated by this playful design and tasty food and decided that this was the place where to hold the wedding reception.

Then I fell madly in love with my wedding dress… I knew this was the one since the first moment I saw it, and I never doubted the decision, even though I bought it a year before the wedding. It reminded me of Audrey Hepburn’s style and of the ’60s. That is what inspired me to try and create a retro atmosphere – I bought many vintage embellishments, the tables were decorated with huge balls made of fresh flowers and the bridesmaids had their own stylish dresses made for them. My hairdresser did my hair fabulously. He created a hairdo that was so high that I had trouble entering in our – vintage, of course – automobile. A string quartet was playing jazz and swing music during the ceremony. We love nostalgic black and white, so I decided to add a striped pattern when I purchased a vintage umbrella with black and white stripes that I fell instantly in love with.

The whole wedding turned out beautifully; it was informal and relaxed, full of love and happy smiles. We had such a blast! We enjoyed wonderful music, exceptional dishes, and for the fun of it, we included also some of the old Czech traditions, such as feeding each other the wedding soup out of a shared plate, a symbol of conjugal cooperation. These moments were truly unforgettable!

Prague Wedding from Exclusive Weddings in Prague

European weddings are like fairytales to me. There is something so incredibly romantic about each and every one that dances on our screens. They appear magical, almost unreal – so perfect it has to be make believe. But this Prague masterpiece by Exclusive Weddings in Prague is the real deal. It’s once upon a time come to life through the images from Stepan Vrzala, and I couldn’t love it more. Luckily for all of us, there is so much more to love sitting pretty right there.

Click here for the FULL wedding!

From the Bride… We were lucky enough to have our dream wedding in one of the most romantic cities in the world: Prague, Czech Republic. My husband is Czech, but my family is Bolivian-English-American, so we had about 100 of our guests from over 25 countries flying in for the celebration. Planning a wedding from across the Atlantic Ocean can be a daunting task, but our hardworking wedding coordinator and brilliant group of vendors made it possible to bring our vision to life.

My husband and I met one summer in Montpellier in the south of France when we were just teenagers. So naturally, we decided to make the romantic, ethereal feeling of young, summer love the centerpiece of our wedding. We used ivory, champagne and soft gradations of rose to complement the beautiful baroque church where our ceremony took place and the gorgeous palace where we had our cocktail hour and reception. My husband is a violinist, so we knew from the start that music would be one of the most important elements of our wedding. Our ceremony featured a 40-piece orchestra, an organ, a soprano and a choir, which all together made the atmosphere truly magical. It was even more special that most of the musicians were close friends of ours. Later on in the evening, a string quartet serenaded us during our four-course dinner, a 12-piece band welcomed our guests onto the dance floor, and a DJ kept us on our feet until two in the morning. For our first dance, 12 of our cellist friends performed a classical version of La Vie en Rose, and as a surprise, my husband performed a piece for me as part of his toast.

Our wedding was the best day of our lives and one we will look back on with a smile on our face and love in our hearts for years to come.
