Castle Konopiste wedding / Oksana & Vladislav wedding day photography

Oksana & Vladislav chose the stunning Konopiste Castle for their destination wedding in Prague. Originally from Russia, they wanted a special wedding for their family & friends and this stunning castle in the Czech countryside did not disappoint.

The castle was built about 7 centuries ago in a French Gothic style and has a stunning collection of tapestries, furniture, hunting memorabilia and of course truly stunning details that set this castle apart from the many others. Konopiste also served as the last residence of Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria, heir to the Austrian-Hungarian throne. I was told that he bullet that killed him is actually held their in the collection. Konopiste has also served in several famous films such as The Illusionist and to be able to shoot inside in some of its storied halls and rooms are  a real treat.

After their wedding ceremony at the castle was over, we were given a private tour of the many stunning rooms and we were allowed to use a few of these rooms for a very quick portrait session. Obviously setting up lights and moving around furniture is a bit difficult so we kept it very simple under the incredible frescoes and chandeliers. Afterwards a few rounds of drinks and sweets with close family & friends on the castle grounds was in order before heading off to Prague.

Oksana & Vladislav were not too keen on the main tourists spots so we instead headed up to another magnificent castle: Prague Castle. I personally think for most couples that simply want to enjoy their first time together as husband and wife and without the large crowds this is always a wonderful idea. Oksana & Vladislav very much enjoyed the more laid back feeling and the calm atmosphere overlooking the bustling city below. After visiting many of the wonderful locations at the castle and the gardens we walked down and across to our last location of the day: the Astronomical Clock. For many couples having one last kiss under this historical clock is important and lets face it – it is also a great way to end our part of the portrait session as well.

All in all, a very peaceful, relaxed and truly beautiful summer day with one of our favorite couples from Russia: Oksana & Vladislav.

To Oksana & Vladislav, on behalf of myself and my team, we wish you much love, happiness and future success in your new lives together.

A special thanks to Cary for handling the lighting assistance and a big thank you to Konstantin  and his lovely wife of  http://www.wedding-cz.ru who did a wonderful job planning this wedding.
