If you want to see a very simple, very elegant and yes, beautiful wedding day from the Chateau Mcely look no further than Ludmila & Sergey's wedding.
They could have married anywhere, but on a previous visit to the Chateau Mcely they simply fell in love with its charms, the excellent staff, the quiet, relaxing location and simply decided that this was their place.
Located in a small forrest outside of Prague, the chateau lovingly restored by its owners is truly an oasis of calm. It's very stylish & chic interior and first class attention to detail - every detail it seems lovingly placed is picture perfect for a couple who wants something a bit different for their wedding day. Combine that with a wonderful staff, the talented florists, gifted musicians and of course that late afternoon light providing the needed ambiance to create that dreamy effect - it is hard to find another chateau in the Czech Republic that excels in this regard.
Ludmila was absolutely beaming when I first met her, and on her wedding day she looked every bit the beautiful princess.
The always smiling Sergey - wine in hand - had the Cheshire cat smile as he and the lads took in the grounds moments before the wedding was to start.
The parents, families and friends: all smiles.
As the musicians started to play all eyes turned towards the beautiful Ludmila as she was escorted by her father to that wonderful location under a large old tree on the Chateau’s grounds. The sunlight filtered through its many branches and leaves providing a rich yellow palette of colors. As the musicians played softly they exchanged their vows, then the rings and sealed it with a kiss.
After the ceremony it was time for many hugs (and some tears), champagne toasts and a walk (or bike) ride around the grounds to take it all in. Many wonderful moments were captured.
Later that night, after the speeches, a few songs, games and presentation of gifts a surprise song from the littlest one whose tiny voice could barely be heard provided a wonderful addition to the evenings entertainment.
And then it was over - almost in a blink of an eye. But not before we snuck out for one final picture (their request of course) of them standing in front of the chateau where it all happened.
The one thing I will always enjoy about Ludmila and Sergey, just how sweet they truly are – and of course how young.
The following is a small selecting of their truly stunning photos captured on that unforgettable wedding day.
To Ludmila & Sergey, it was a real pleasure meeting you and your wonderful families. I wish both of you much love, happiness and success in your new lives together as husband and wife.
