A European Wedding That’ll Convince You Less is More

Simplicity is the name of the game for this Slovakia wedding, and thanks to the beautiful images by Peter & Veronika Photography I’m officially convinced that less is more. Set by the river with a breathtaking first look, this day is filled with dreamy moments and postcard-worthy views. See each and every capture sitting pretty in The Vault.

Al Fresco

From The Bride…Soon after beginning our wedding preparations, it became clear that we wanted a summer wedding – an outdoor one ideally. The perfect venue was quickly found: s restaurant on the banks of the River Danube with a lovely garden and a breathtaking view of our hometown. The building itself was built back in 1827 and offers a unique combination of elegance and nostalgic flair.

As with every outdoor wedding, the weather was our biggest concern. Fortunately, it turned out even better than expected and we were able to enjoy a warm summer night with our guests, surrounded by the lights of Bratislava’s old city center.

As the venue and its view were already unique, we felt it did not need much decoration. To match the venue’s character we decided to keep it simple and elegant by using flowers in soft pastel tones with golden details.

To give the wedding a bit of a personal touch, and because I have always enjoyed DIY projects, I decided to make certain items myself. The wedding favors, the ring plate and also the menu were all my creations. A great source of inspiration for these was Pinterest and of course the many gorgeous weddings published on Style Me Pretty.

For my dress, I decided to go with the Slovak designer Zlatica Hujbertova. I wanted something simple and airy, something I would feel comfortable wearing throughout the day but also dancing in all night.

My advice for future brides would be this: Don’t panic if things don’t go as perfect as planned. Just roll with it and focus on the important: Having fun on this special day with your loved one and friends & family.

Royal Purple Old World Wedding in Slovakia

From Peter & Veronika PhotographyMary Donna and Oliver had to travel all over the world to find each other and fall in. Oliver was born in Slovak Republic and in the childhood emigrated with his parents to US.

Mary Donna is from Philippines, but she found her home in US as well. They are both doctors and they found their love right at the workplace. Marry is a cardiologist and therefore it was easy for her to steal Oliver’s heart. For their wedding they chose the capital of Slovak Republic – beautiful Bratislava.

Slovak Republic is on the half way between US and Philippines, that´s why both of the families met right there. The wedding took place in a beautiful hotel right at the heart of Bratislava with an amazing view of the castle and the National Theatre.

It was a classic and elegant wedding in purple and white shades. Both bridesmaids’ dresses and their bouquets were purple. We are very happy, that we could be a part of that connection of these two wonderful persons, two different cultures and two families.

Vintage Chic Marsala Wedding Inspiration

If timeless vintage goodness is your jam, this shoot from Peter & Veronika Photography and Ponk Rentals will have you grinning ear to ear. It’s has a classic, mysterious air that will transport you to a different time and place, where love forever lives. From the deep red and burgundy palette splashes across the stationery and florals to the piles of beautifully aged chairs, this gallery in THE VAULT is a vintage-lover’s dream.

Urban Space

From Peter & Veronika PhotographyWe have created this styled shoot with the thought of combining modern and trendy with something classic and timeless. On the one hand side there are new materials, trendy colours, unusual flowers and on the other classy jewelry, grandmother’s dress and vintage candle holders. Our inspiration came when we saw Ponk Rentlas’ warehouse full of antique and vintage furniture, which was just asking for a timeless concept.

From Ponk RentalsThe dream for this styled shoot began a long time before it finally came to live thanks to a very talented and energetic wedding photogrpaher duo Peter and Veronika. We always love the dreamy character of our warehouse. From the moment you enter you are transported to a place where time stands still. It’s full of beautiful furniture that our parents collected for years (when collecting develops into a small obsession…) and you can just wonder around for hours discovering, imaging the history and recreating the future of every piece. It’s full of natural light gently filtered through dusty industrial skylights that creates feeling of serenity you would not usually associated with a place like this. We were longing to capture this sentiment of re-discovering, quite creativity and day dreaming. 

Peter and Veronika, who also immediately fell under the spell of our warehouse, suggested a styled shoot inspired by the idea of eternal love we were couldn’t be more excited. We thought of drama and passion of eternal life buried under the stillness of time and space, long forgotten but waiting to be brought back to life. We immediately thought of dark red of the roses, which have always been a symbol of love and passion, to be the focal point of the styling, coupled with gentler shades of purple and white calla and water lilies. We offset the drama with lush linens and silks, luxurious vintage tableware and soft candle lights. Ivy and other trailing foliage symbolizes the passage of time and slow decay of beauty just to be transformed into another form of beauty.

With this styled shoot we would like to inspire the brides not to be afraid to mix the dress from the latest collections (in our case it was the beautiful Pronovias dress from wedding avenue) coupled with vintage fur coat and jewelry with a hint of marsala. The short dress comes from a inheritance (lent by Ponk Rentals), just perfectly illustrating this timeless effect – what was beautiful 50 years ago is still very appealing now as it will be in 50 years. We coupled the vintage dress with a very trendy Hot Chocolate Boudoir Brand (Maison Maybe) .

The whole concept of stationery was entrusted to a very talented illustrator, Iveta Karpathyova, who created amazing “save the date” cards with a hand painted flowers and beautiful script.
