An Informal House Party Wedding in the Czech Republic

The words ‘relaxed’ and ‘informal’ are thrown around a lot in the wedding world, but if there was one wedding that truly epitomises what that might mean it’s Kristý and Esteban’s. Married in Czech Republic on the steps of the Hora Matky Boží monastery, what followed had all the makings of an epic house party rather than a wedding!

After the ceremony they all piled on a bus and headed to a local funfair and following that there was a party in a house in the nearby village. They had a Mexican BBQ made by Esteban and his brothers , they smashed pinatas and they danced and partied into the wee hours.

Abandoned Railway Station Wedding in Czech Republic

Tereza and Josef were married at an abandoned freight railway station in the Czech Republic! They had an outdoor ceremony followed by a reception full of all the things they love… and gold dinosaurs!

“The ceremony was set outside, it was really fun!”, began Tereza. “We met with our officiant few days before the wedding in a pub, we got drunk and he asked us all sorts questions about our relationship and he made a lot of notes. His speech was awesome, very personal and everybody laughed. Also, a group of our friends put blue wigs on – it was a surprise for us and another hilarious moment of the ceremony! Instead of ring cushion, we had the rings ready on a heavy metal hand from Urban Outfitters.”

The day was inspired by all the things they love, and the bride got lots of different ideas from Rock n Roll Bride! “My style is Rock n Roll. It’s not just the fashion but all my life. It is freedom and happiness and little dirt and punk. So was the wedding. We love old abandoned factories and spaces of this kind. That is why we chose the railway station, so it was industrial. We also had gold dinosaurs. They matched with my golden skirt, and by the end of the day all dinosaurs were stolen by the guests! Five days before the wedding I woke up with the idea of having gold dinosaurs at the wedding. So I visited about five shops with kids toys and bought all the plastic dinosaurs they had and then sprayed them gold. We also asked two of our friends to draw big Stegosaurus on the floor of the venue. It was fenced with police tape, so it looked like the shape of a dead body of the Stegosaurus.”
