We are writing a lot about big weddings, but it would be really shame not to mention romantic elopment weddings we do organise mainly for couples from Hong Kong. Even these couples usually elope, the weddings are always very stylish and elaborated untill the very last detail.
One of these weddings was also wedding of Daisy and Kwan, who got married couple weeks ago at the historical Old Town Hall. Daisy did contact us almost year ago and she was pretty flexible with the date. After few emails we did agree on July 24th, 2012 at 2.00 p.m. Later on couple aske dus to change the wedidng day – and we were lucky – and moved it to July 26th, 2012, same time, same location.
Our couples from Hong Kong are always very demanding, especially in terms of photo and MUA (make-up artists). Daisy carefully went through portfolio of different photographers and at the end decided for Lukas Konarik, very known and respected photographer.He is also very nice and calm person, so it is always a pleasure to work with him.
We really had lot of time to plan everything with Daisy, so it all went smoothly, without any stress. Next step was to secure the accomodation – we have great cooperation with the apartment company Prague Stay and also this time found nice apartment for Daisy at the Lesser Town.
Daisy is very pretty romantic lady, so the bouquet was also made in romantic tone – pink roses and peonies, together with buttonhole for Kwan, little cushion for wedding rings and bracelet for Daisy.
Couple arived to Prague couple days before the wedding day and we met them on Wed to complete the paperwork. There is no fun to wake up early and go to the foreign police, but as we always go there early, we are very often done soon without waiting there hours. Registry office was then just a quick stop, so we brought couple back to their apartment soon. Hair and make-up trial followed and couple wanted to make some pre-wedding pictures they can share it with their families and friends.
And wedding day was here – sun was shining since the morning, great for pictures. Hair and make-up artist arrived to the apartment and short after her also photographer and cameraman. Wedding coordinator brought flowers for the couple and then was already time to leave.
Old Town Hall is always bussy with tourists and they just love weddings. All couples are nicely welcomed and people are taking pictures of them . We arrived 30 min before the ceremony – we chose music, registrar explained us the order of service and of course we took another pictures. Couple used classical music over the ceremony, adding also Vltava by famous composer Bedrich Smetana.
Ceremony at the Old Town Hall takes almost half an hour and is really nice. After the welcoming of the couple there was reading about love, marriage, happiness and after that was time to exchange the vows. People do not need to worry about forgetting something – they only say – Yes, I do – and translator guides them through the whole ceremony. At the end there was a toast by traditional Bohemia sparkling wine and after some pictures with the officiator couple left the ceremony hall.
It was really hot day, so couple rather prefered to leave hot Old Town Square and going to the Prague castle. This area is so romantic and pictures are amazing. Daisy, Kwan, photographer and cameraman slowly walked back to the apartment nearby the Charles bridge whike taking pictures. In the afternoon arrived again stylist and changed the hair and make-up, Daisy also changed her dress for the evening pictures and they continued with Lukas to the other locations.
And how did they finish their wedding day – by intimate dinner in nice restaurant.
Pictures coming soon!
