Couple kissing with leaves falling around them

An Intimate Forest Wedding in the Czech Republic

Jitka and Honza didn’t want a big wedding with the whole shebang. Instead they chose to marry under the falling autumn leaves in an intimate forest wedding. Just their daughter, best man and Jitka’s best friend Eliška, who was also their wedding photographer, were there.

Jitka loves a bit of rock so opted to wear a leather jacket and boots with her wedding dress, which looked amazing. Her matching bridal bouquet and floral headband completed the look perfectly.

After the ceremony the couple and their bridal party went to a wonderful restaurant, Drmalská Myslivna, located in a picturesque valley at the foot of the Ore Mountains. Here they enjoyed a fabulous lunch set on a woodland styled table decorated with moss, twigs and conkers.

We love how intimate their forest wedding ceremony was. Who needs a church packed full of people when you can have those nearest and dearest to you under the trees.

We adore these pictures by Eliška of Khiria.

Enough Company to Have Fun With

“We decide to get married alone in the forest because we simply felt that big weddings aren’t made for us. I was in the 7th month of pregnancy and I just wanted to spend the day with my best friend, our daughter, Honza and his best man. It was enough company to have fun with.

A Wedding in an Old Amphitheatre

Beautiful braids, hay bales, a flying unicorn (yes a unicorn!) and a HUGE party with 200 guests; what is not to love about today’s uber-cool real wedding?

We love that Sharon and Teun describe their wedding as “bohemian; kind of a cosy mess, like a small festival”, the perfect wedding for such a beautiful couple.

We have to thank photographer Eliška of Khiria Photography for these amazing wedding pictures that we are sharing with you today.

“The wedding idea was to have one big party with our 200 guests. The ceremony was in an old amphitheatre, and we sat in a small rocking bench with flowers everywhere. The ceremony was intimate and very personal, and we prepared some words for some of our loved ones.

“The reception was more like drinks with music that fluently went to dinner. We don’t like the word reception that much. It was very loose, relaxed, bohemian; kind of a cosy mess , like a small festival.

“We prepared wooden spoons with our initials on and tied our favourite recipe (homemade Buma BBQ sauce) and a red pepper to them to give to our guests. Our friends made wooden signs for all over.

“Our wedding was full of fun, good food and lots of music and dance. Our friends prepared s many surprises for us, including a funny movie about how we met and a lot of speeches about our past and memories. The whole day was unforgettable.”
