Our latest couple from Russia as they exchange their vows in the impressive Grand 'Emperors' Hall at the Troja Chateau in Prague.
The Grand Hall is situated on the 1st floor of the chateau and you can enter it directly from the southern gardens via the grand Baroque stairway or from inside the chateau. The painting decorations are the creation of the Dutch painters Abraham and Isaac Godyn 1691-1697 (nearly 1,400 m2 of paintings). Their theme is the celebration of the victory over the Turks at Vienna, which culminates in a tribute to the ruler. In the richly divided work there are interconnected historical stories and legends as well as the triumphalistically culminated celebration of the ruling Habsburg dynasty's glory and power.
The paintings have been created as tempera (not the fresco technique), therefore they required much slower painting process. This allowed for a thorough detailed drawing and modeling of all details with incredible shape precission, which considerably increases the work's deceptive effect. The hall's space is illusionistically cambered with the notion of the open vastness of the heavens.destination weddings (168), Grand Emperors Hall (3), Luxury Weddings (114), NE Ohio wedding photographers (3), Prague photographers (114), Tempera paintings (3), top wedding venue Prague (3), Troja Castle (3), Troja Chateau (9), wedding venues (3), weddings (18).
