A beautiful elopement wedding at the Church of St. Thomas in Prague

When Rachel contacted me about her Prague wedding, I was pretty excited. She is friends with one of my first clients from 2008 who also had an elopement wedding in Prague: Tara & Ethan. Originally she was thinking of marrying in the Ukraine (a country I very much love ) and bringing me out for it, but it became a bit more complicated than they had time for. So they decided to elope here to Prague. Knowing that it was going to be just her and her fiancee Brendan I really wanted to create something truly special for them.

They had a very simple and beautiful ceremony at the Church of St. Thomas in the heart of Mala Strana. I always felt that this was one of the most beautiful churches in Prague and of course it was all the more special as pastor PhDr. P. William Faix is one of the nicest people you will ever meet.

After their vows under the stunning murals of this incredible church, it was time to head out to enjoy the warmth of this enchanting city. As the weather was simply perfect we decided to enjoy a boat ride along the Vltava. Personally, if you have the time, this makes for a truly unforgettable excursion and Brenden was more than happy to row his stunning and beaming bride Rachel around as other boaters also took pictures and cozied up to them.

Afterwards, we took a wonderful stroll around the city simply capturing them enjoying their first day together as husband and wife. I must admit, Rachel & Brenden are two very sweet and incredibly nice people (Canadians of course!) and being able to capture their wedding day in a truly relaxed and fun way was a real treat and joy.


The images from the same session processed in a different style. For many couples having a more toned look or a film look is all the rage. In saying that we will create our images in the proofing stage that is as close as to being shot as possible. When it comes time for our client to select their images and their style - we will work closely with them to provide them with a style that best suits their style and taste.
