Farnosh and Arild

Farnosh and Arild is couple we enjoyed from the first moment. Couple who loves each other so much, couple that creates amazing family together with their 3 children. The youngest, sweet Estelle Leona was born short after we started to plan everything.

They live in Norway, but are originally from other countries, so the wedding was beatiful mix of Norwegian, Sri Lanca and Iranian guests.

Arild arrived first with his best friend to choose the location. He was deciding between Villa Richter and Carlo IV Boscolo hotel, lovely places wth completelly different design and concept. He falled in love with the luxury of the Boscolo, but also with the view and style of Villa Richter. Nothing was then easier then to use Villa Richter for pre-wedding dinner and Boscolo hotel for wedding day. Second pre-wedding visit was already with Farnosh and their youngest daughter to go more to the details – taste the food, pick flowers, talk to the officiator etc.

The wedding colours were black and white with touch of pink. Ceremony was hold at beautiful lobby, with lot of gold accents, so the flowers there were more rich and flowers at Opera hall, which was used for evening dinner and party, were very minimalistic. Villa Richter was decorated with flowers in happy summer tones.¨

Farnosh spent her morning with her friends, enjoying hair and make-up and champagne. Children were in good hands of granparents, so also Arild relaxed with friends :-) . We already started to cry when when we saw their son Caspian to deliver rose and love message to Farnosh from Arild…

Everyone cried when Farnosh entered the lobby with bridesmaids and children. They all looked so pretty! It was so emotional, especially for Arild. Classical string quartet accompanied the ceremony, Arild´s sister as a sweet surprise sang a song, while palying piano. Song Happy by Colin Pharrell played at the end.

Dinner followed about 2 hours later and important part played speaches. We also loved the norwegian tradition – whenever one of the couple left for a moment, all men or women came to the head table to kiss the bride or groom. So many kisses!

Sayaka and Keven

Wedding of Sayaka and Keven can be expressed by one word – amazing. This lovely couple contacted us about 2 months before their wedding and asked for symbolic ceremony at St. Nicholas church. This church is one of the most beautiful and also most popular in Prague. Priests are really nice and have very good english, ceremony is full of love and nice words and organ players belongs to the best in the country.

Also reception venue was quite easy – couple falled in love with Villa Richter. Since the wedding party was pretty small (12 people), we booked the glass room and terrace with amazing view.

Both bride and groom work in architecture, design and were very precised with their requirements. We got detailed floor plan of the glass house and teracce with positioning of each vendor, furniture, flowers.

Sayaka and Keven arrived to Europe already few weeks before, starting their trip in London, followed by Paris and a few locations in Italy. Photographer and stylist, both with assistents, joined them already from Hong Kong and took pics at all these amazing locations.

They have great taste and flowers played big part of the wedding, so there was prepared flower concept for both ceremony and reception, using mainly roses, Eustoma, orchids, hydrangeas and greenery, in colours of white, orange, apricot. We also hang lots of small glass bowls with tea light candles on the ceiling of glass house.

After 2 hours couple moved inside the glasss house and after speaches was served 12 course degustation menu. Couple met back in 1996, so it was a bit difficult to get Louis Roderer Crystal 1996, Chateauneuf du Pape 1996 or Chateau Margeaux, also 1996, but we were lucky and able to arrange a few bottles for this amazing couple.

They were pretty sure about the locations – beautiful chapel of the Valtice chateau, followed by lunch at hunting castle Rendez Vous and evening party again at the chateau Valtice. Originally they were thinking about Spanish stalls, but due to the reconstruction around were at the end chosen rooms on the 2nd floor of the chateau.

In addition to the hotel Tereza also operates own catering company, which made the selection easier. Althought was logistically difficult to deliver from Prague all the ingredients and equipment, but the risk was worth and the result was great. At both Rendez Vous and the chateau, where is no kitchen, nothing except of the electricity and water, they were able to offer something special to their guests.

Tereza is very pretty and for the make-up artist and hairdresser was a pleasure to do her hair and make-up. Fascinator was the best  accessory to the very interesting wedding gown, gave a  touch of grace to the final look.  Also the other ladies were asked to wear fascinator on the wedding day.

South moravia is connected with the wine, which was also composed to the wedding invitation – very unusually made. Each guest received paper bag with the names of the couple and wedding motif and inside the bag was box with inserted glass for wine tasting. After opening the box there was map of Lednice-Vatlcie area and little book with the programm.

Tereza with her dark hair is type for colour distinctive flowers, which were composed in tones of pink and lila. Florist used mainly roses, hydrangeas, Amaranthus, dahlias and David Austin roses. She prepared bridfal bouquet, bouqzt for bridesmaid, wreath for flower girl, flowers for mothers, , buttonholes for groom, fathers and witness, decor for the car and of course bot chapel and reception venues were amazingly decorated. Seating plan was placed in pretty flower frame, which was usec in the evening at the photo corner. Tall and low flowers arrangements with mix of flowers were used on the round tables.

Wedding guests were already from Prague escorted by decorated bus, in which weren´ t missed paper box with funny poetry in case of any sickness. One part of guests stayed in Lednice, the other then in Valtice. The bus was at disposal over the weekeend and on Sun took guests again back to Prague.

Gusts all arrived on Fri around 2 p.m. and in the evening were escorted to the chateau Valtice. Cafe at the courtyard offerd them burcak, lovely cakes and homemade sponge cake. After all met each other, moved just across the courtyard to the Salon vin for wine degustation. To taste about 100 samples was pretty difficult for all…Therefore decided to walk to the penzion Klaret, where was dinner arranged. In addition to amazing cakes, meat on the grill and tasty wines, guests were also pleased by traditional moravian musicians. Around midnight everyone said bye and guests from Lednice drove back to the hotel.

Saturday ceremony was planned for 11.30 a.m.  All guests met again at the Cafe before the ceremony, since they already knew it well. Bride arrived in lovely vintage car, driven by really stylish dressed owner of the car.

Althought the ceremony was civil, officiator was able to make all the guests cry and laugh. After glass of champagne followed group picture and then guests were escorted to Rendez Vous. Reward for so mayn stairs up to the hall was nice space and mainly gurman experience with a few course menu, incl. also St. Jacob´ scallops and Foie grass. It was really admirable what everything catering managed in such a small and limited space. Originally couple planned to cut the cake outside, but mosquitos beated really intensivelly, and even guest all received insectifuge bracelets, almost all of them forgot it at the hotels, so at the end cake was cuted inside.

The plan was to make a break for 2 hours between the end of the lunch and evening party, but only half of the guest managed it – promised storm really arrived and bus, that had to turn at the meadow, just got stucked…But there were many strong men between the guests and before tractor was found, bus was saved. At least newlyweds managed to took some pics at the lace where they got engaged.

At the evenig party there was prepared for guests cheese bar, with the signs in the same style and design as the invitation and other prinitngs. But that was not all – from Brno were delivered amazing ice statues, whcih were admired by the visitors also the day after. So called market hall was at disposal next to the statues – lot of raw meat, fishes and seafood was arranged on ice, waiters walked around the guests and took orders and brought it again back after was grilled.

Amazing jazz played at the courtyard, part of the programm was also dancing performance with charleston, kankan and fashion show of not only huts, but also historical underwear. Newlyweds pleased guests by their first dance and photographer prepared slide show with the photos from the day. Closing of the first part of the night was great firework in front of the chateau.

After that started to be cold already and also rain came back, so everyone moved from the courtyard to the 2nd floor, where was sweet bar and another snacks. Big success had barman show and of course cocktails. Next to the hall with bar was DJ with videoprojection.

Wedding flowers trends 2015

Flowers makes the atmosphere and from even simple space can create something magic. I believe that 2015´s flowers will be very romantic and feminine. Let´ see some trends:

Romantic luxe

Inspired by A-list celebrity weddings such as Kim and Kanye, trend is “full-on luxe” romance, in high flower content. We will see romantic blooms like hydrangea, hyacinths and orchids in creamy pastels.

Photo by Stepan Vrzala

Wild garden

Brides will choose softly-coloured blooms reflecting tones of the English garden. The ‘just-picked-from-the-garden’ look has already been popular and this gorgeous trend doesn’t look like it’s going anywhere for the next year! Amazing is look of sweet peas, tulips and garden roses.

For autumn weddings will be great flowers inspired by woodland, like blowsy roses or ferns, with its wild look.

Crowning glory

In 2014 many brides chose flower crown and it seems this trend will continue. Flower crown can be made from delicate flowers like gypsophila, or a fuller blooms like roses and hydrangea, depending on the feel and theme of the wedding.

Classic and clean

Many brides prefer classic bouquet, so white and ivory look remain popular throughout 2015, by using traditional blooms like roses. Simplicity and elegance is timeless combination.

Winter wool

Latest trend in Europe is using natural materials as a part of wedding bouquet. Wool-wrapped bouquets look great especially in the winter, by using shades of ivory and grey, with anemone, pussy willow flowers.

Pretty pastels

Pastel, soft white and cream colours are always popular when the weather starts to get warmer, enhanced by large open flowers. Great is the look of peonies in ice cream shades like peach, lemon and pink.

Hanging blooms

Hanging blooms is big wedding trend. Choose a statement tree and have bottles hanging from branches filled with pretty blooms or use the whole tree as an alternative wedding guest book.

Well, it seems great season is coming, right :-) .

Good night,

Andrea
