When I met Evgeniya and Adrian last August, none of us had any idea about what 2020 brings to the whole world. Couple was keen into palace wedding, royal style, with lots of guests. Ideal solution was Zofin palace in the centre of Prague. Guests would come mainly from Russia, Romania and Czech Republic.
We were hoping until end of May that situation will change, but then we realized that this is not gonna happen and especially guests from Russia would not be able to come at all. What to do? Another postponing wozuld be connected with higher penalty in case of cancellation, so we decided to cancel the lovely hall at the palace and started to look at new, smaller venue.
And we cam back to Zofin, not the hall, but perfectly renovated garden and its tent. The new catering company made amazing job and couple was excited. From 150 to 25 guests, big decrease, but life is sometimes unpredictable.
Ceremony was planned at romantic Vrtbovska garden which was perfect for this number of guests. We arranged catering from hotel Aria located right next to the garden, so guests could enjoy Prosecco and homemade lemonades from the beginning they arrived. Bride was escorted with her mum and bridesmaids in vintage Bentley from 1948. Harpist and violin players accompanied romantic ceremony and guests admired beautiful flower.
Garden is perfect for photos, while guests enjoyed drinks and music. Newlyweds continued with photographer to a few spots, while guests arrived to Zofin garden. The canapees looked perfect and was really tasty. Couple really wanted to spoil their guests, so bar was full of branded alcohol, men enjoyed gentlemens corner with cognac, and cigars, while ladies had their chill out zone with champagne, chocolate pralines and macaroons.
My expectation for the future is that weddings will be smaller, but very precize, with focus on every single detail. Couples will do their best to make their closes feel very spoiled and I xcould recognize it at this wedding already.
But not only family and friends were surprised by generosity of the couple. Since many people could not attend the wedidng, they recorded messages and created songs for couple which were shown during the evening. What a surprise!
Excellent moderator Konstantin guided newlyweds and guests during the entire evening, excellent team with italian DJ Sergio.
What to say at the end? We were very sad about change of the plans, but at the end wedding turned out into amazing event where all guests enjoyed every minute., And not to forget excellent first dance!
All the best and lots of love, Evgeniya and Adrian!
