Wedding luxury in the Czech Republic
Immerse yourselves in the world
of romantic weddings in the
Czech Republic. Make your dream
come true in one of the most
romantic cities in the world.
Prague and the Czech Republic have been a wedding
destination for international clients for more than 15 years.
There is a large variety of romantic, elegant, extravagant
and casual as well as ultra-luxurious and premium locations
that will help to create the experience of a lifetime. Even
the most demanding clients can find a set-up that would
not only meet but exceed their expectations. There are
English-speaking officiators and priests available to perform
weddings; the other option is a Czech-speaking officiator
or priest with an interpreter.
St. Thomas or St. Nicholas Church
are our top
recommendations for exceptional church settings where
the bride and the groom can begin their journey through life
together, followed by a private boat tour with champagne
and dinner at one of the restaurants or hotels with grand
Prague views of the Charles Bridge and the Vltava River.
Old Town Hall
is a traditional venue with a very convenient
location for couples who prefer a civil ceremony. More
demanding clients tend to choose exclusive locations such as
rooftop suites of premium hotels,
which provide complete
privacy and exclusive views of the Vltava River, Prague Castle
and the Charles Bridge.
Another amazing setting is the exceptional
Chateau Troja
followed by a boat
trip to the centre of Prague and dinner at one of the romantic restaurants of
old Prague. Consider a ceremony in the wonderful
Prague Castle gardens,
with a string quartet completing the atmosphere, followed by champagne
cocktails and fine canapés. There is a wide range of beautiful venues for either
a small dinner or a larger reception for 30, 50 or 100+ guests.
Legalities
The paperwork for international clients is manageable even without
a wedding planner. Of course it is also possible to arrange all the legal matters
with the help of various websites and through the Czech Embassy.
A general overview what is needed:
a birth certificate, a“no impediment
to marry”document, issued by the register office in your home country, and
a divorce decree if you are divorced. Usually the bride and groom have to be in
the country two to three working days before the wedding. For more detailed
information, visit
.
It is advized to start preparing the legal paperwork six months prior to
the wedding day. Of course it is also possible to organize something at
the last minute. And nowadays there is another option: The Czech Republic
has became a very popular place for
symbolic weddings,
where the couple
saves the money, time and energy related to collecting legal paperwork by
doing this in their home country.
A unique transport experience. Since
old and historical have again become
very trendy, you can provide your
guests with an amazing experience by
using
a historical tram
for a private ride
around Prague, either purely for
sightseeing or combining a sightseeing
tour with transport to your wedding
destination.
