There are so many beautiful places in the world. The weddings that come to us each day constantly make me realise just how few of them I’ve been to! Today we’re honoured to share our first wedding from Slovenia. Couple Lucija and Gligorij met nine years ago in college. Last summer they organised an intimate and beautiful wedding in Slovenia, in the small town of Celje. The couple wanted a simple ceremony with their closest friends and family so had just 20 guests. Their chosen theme was yellow, the couple’s favourite colour. Lucija and Gligorij are also photographers so they wanted to bring that into their portraits by incorporating vintage cameras. A portrait session in a meadow just before sunset let the excellent MK Photography capture the couple in the most beautiful warm light, as you’ll see.

The ceremony was held in Lucija and Gligorij’s home town in the beautiful garden of Ipavčeva house in Šentjur, with the reception at LaStoria restaurant in Celje. After the reception the wedding party went to celebrate picnic-style by a lake nearby until morning. The couple’s families helped with wedding planning and the decor was mostly DIY- their friend Barbara did the bride’s wedding bouquet, the cake was made by the groom’s witness Luka, and his mother did make up. The wedding day was exactly as the couple wanted: fun, sunny, relaxed and surrounded by the people they love the most. Their advice to future bride and grooms would be:  “Stick to what you want in planning the wedding, even if others dismiss your ideas as a little bizarre! Try not to worry about all the little things that may happen, just enjoy the planning and the day itself as much as possible.”
