Don`t get us wrong – we love working in seaside resorts and on beautiful Adriatic beaches, but it`s so refreshing to travel inlands every now and then and explore new wedding venues.
The winery itself is a beautiful property located 10km from Bjelovar, surrounded by intact nature. As the indoor restaurant couldn`t fit one hundred guests, we have decided to put up a marquee and cover the terrace that is joined to the property. The tenting started 36 hours before the big event will take place. Our main concern was to cover up the frontline of the property so that no journalist can access the private day of our popular singer and her loving husband to be. As Murphy always strikes when it`s least convenient, a strong wind started that morning and seriously threatened our 30m long coverage. Still, the nature has finally decided to play along just before the ceremony started, so we ended up having beautiful sunny afternoon.
The couple decided to have a civil ceremony in the garden in front of the winery. It`s a beautiful lawn with wild roses bush and a well, so we decided to set-up just a shabby-chic console table with four chairs for the couple, maid of honor and best man. Indira walked down the aisle in gorgeous lace Pronovias dress and a bridal bouquet made out of white orchids, accompanied by the sounds of Fly me to the moon.
The ceremony was short and sweet, so it was not long until guests entered the all-white tent where transparent Kartell chairs were dominating the visual concept. All other details were white, including candelabrum, centerpieces and stationary. White elements gave the perfect foundation for fabulous light design that accompanied the lovely couple and their guests through every song and rhythm change.
Highlight of the reception was the wedding cake. Couple decided to also offer five different cakes along with a sweets table where different mousses and traditional Croatian cookies were served.
After the cake was cut, Indira went to change into a glamorous short black dress, designed especially for her. The dress change was followed by styling alternations, which included new accessories and make up.
As the evening went on, the dance floor was getting more and more filled with jolly guests.
It was great to have complete trust of the bride for all design and decorative elements. The only guidance was to keep it as white as possible, as that is Indira`s favorite color. Our designer Davor immediately chose orchid phalaenopsis as theme flowers. Vases were purchased exclusively for this celebrity wedding and had their premiere that day. Centerpiece was nicely incorporated with white candelabrum on each table. The couple`s head table was additionally decorated with clear Bourgie lamps on each side.
Indira is also a fan of minimalism, so we kept it simple – white color scheme, with just few interesting transparent elements. The acrylic wedding invitation was also made to match the wedding theme and it included a detailed navigation how to reach the winery. As wedding favors, we have suggested a cartoon draw of the couple, what they happily accepted. Indira and Miroslav are very casual and fun couple who like to joke, so it was the gift that matches perfectly with their easy going character.
As for our experience, we are still under the impression of ceremony music which perfectly describes the love we witnessed on that day.
Fill my heart with song
Let me sing forever more
You are all I long for
All I worship and adore
In other words, please be true
In other words, I love you.
