Austrian Castle Wedding by orange-foto
Today we’re headed to Austria for the very first time! Connie and Herbert are based in Vienna, but have always wanted to marry in a beautiful castle. Dating back to the 11th century and set in lush, secluded grounds, the idyllic Castle of Obermayerhofen in Styria fit the bill perfectly. The couple invited 200 guests to celebrate with them over three days, and proceedings kicked off with their intimate civil ceremony, set in the grounds of the castle. The couple donned Dirndls, the national costume of Austria and exchanged their vows in front of only their immediate family and a small number of their closest friends. In the evening they joined the remainder of their guests to celebrate over some local Styrian cuisine (strudel, yuuuummm . . .) and a spot of concertina playing!
The following day, Connie and Herbert each headed to separate rooms to get dressed ahead of their wedding ceremony in the opulent surrounds of the castle’s chapel. Keep your eye out for the beautiful moment where the bride’s father is rendered speechless at the first sight of his daughter in her gown . . . sigh! Following the ceremony, the couple joined Wolfgang of orange-foto for some portraits in the beautiful grounds of the castle before a very elegant evening reception. Festivities concluded the following day, with a brunch for all 200 guests.
