Jasmina and Mihael’s Slovenian wedding was all about nature. They kept things small and they spent only €1000 on the day. “Our colours were white, black and dark green with elements of wood, jute and lace”, said the bride. “We wanted to have a lot of wooden elements and to completely ban plastic from our table sets.”


“We were inspired by other eco-friendly weddings that we saw online but we wanted to have our wedding under our terms. It was a really nice to have an outdoor wedding with home-prepared food. Everything was vegan and vegetarian too. We gave homemade hemp soap as favours.”


The ceremony took place in the gardens of a Kromberk castle. “Usually the weddings there take place inside or in front of the restaurant, but we managed to get the permission to have our ceremony in the beautiful outdoor amphitheatre next to the castle. The decorations were subtle but beautiful. At the beginning of the ceremony we had the singer, Maja Založnik, performing an acoustic song and then it all went from there. It was the happiest moments of our lives.”


“Another thing was was unique was that I sang to my groom in the evening. I stared with Etta James, At Last and then I entertained the guests with a few classics!”

“Our biggest expense was food and drinks for everybody but we really saved on our outfits. We would have been happy to spend more but in the end we both found what we wanted for a total of €60 for both of us!”
