Czech-Brazilian Wedding of Katerina & Guilherme at Chateau Bon Repos

This Czech-Brazilian wedding was really something exceptional to plan. When I met them for the first time, I saw a couple sooo in love, so easy going, relaxed and with the best vibe. They only told me they wanted to enjoy their wedding as much as possible. The whole planning was in the same mood. I had created a design board, had suggested decorations, prints and style of the wedding and waited for their feedback. They loved everything so much that they decided to leave pretty much everything up to me. It was very special for me. I appreciate they had so much trust in me and I’m really happy they loved the result. That’s the best thing ever!

You can see below, if you like the design and decorations ideas I created. The theme was “boho” rustic but elegant using mostly pale colours.

The wedding of Katka and Gui was rustic / elegant boho style with pale colour palette and a touch of wine-coloured and dark pink to light everything up. We rented different pieces of furniture, carpets, used geometrical shapes and created seating out of pallet furniture.

Chateau Bon Repos, located about 50 km from Prague, offers a beautiful historical pavilion. However the bride had a dream of an outside wedding so we were the first ones who took a chance and did everything outside under a lovely tent.

We brought everything – tables, chairs, flowers, lights, decorations, Bedouin tent, decorated it with light bulbs and of course a great catering company.

In order guests could enjoy the view in the garden, we created a lounge in a shade of trees made of pallet furniture, carpets, pillows and with a little tepee to match the ceremony teepee.

Preperations of the tent, furniture and decorations took us 2 days. And then around noon on the wedding day, preparations of the bride, the groom and their close ones could also begin.

Ceremony was held in a park overlooking all the beautiful trees and also the chateau. it ws sooo magical! I truly enjoyed all the happiness and joy you could see in all the guest’s eyes, especially the Brazilian part. This is simply why I love doing weddings…

Chairs and tables were wooden, the decorations were in gray tones, light green and pale colours. I went for a bit for rustic style but with a touch of elegance. How do you like the different type of chairs I chose?

Guests received a little flowerpot of echeveria with “Thank you” tags. Wedding invitations together with all the other prints were styled to Boho style and all the colours we used.

After a lovely dinner there was time for some sweets! And of course all had to match the design concept. I wanted to achieve something interesting and unusual, that is why we chose three cakes with three different flavours. The newlyweds and guests loved the idea so I was really happy! Also I chose a rustic old wooden table for the service.

There was a second lounge made of armchair, sofa, ottoman in front of the Bedouin tent. There were tables with sweets as a part of the seating so it made it very special. To make it more comfortable, we used table lamps, candles and a bulb chain. It was such a cosy and comfortable lounge, guests loved it.

There must be a caipirinha cocktail at each Brazilian wedding. This wedding wasn’t any different. Guests could prepare their own drink with a little help of bartenders. The evening party was amazing! There was a live band, guests drank and ate whatever they wanted and the dance floor was full of Brazilian wild spirit.

I want thank to every single person who was part of this wonderful wedding. It was so worth it and I loved each minute working on it. It was such a successful wedding! I loved seeing Katka and Gui being so happy and in love. I loved that they enjoyed it together, every single detail, every minute of it. Seeing their happy faces is the biggest “thank you” I could hope for. Thank you for leaving  pretty much everything up to me. Thank  you for your huge trust! Not only me but all suppliers enjoyed the planning. Sending lots of love to you both to Brazil!




I would love to thank you a looooooooot for all your hard work to make our unique day perfect. We enjoyed it a lot and from all sides there are positive words only. We were 110% satisfied with the choice of suppliers you recommended us. We admire your willingness to fulfil our dream wedding and we are so grateful having you two. Personally, I am happy, I chose your agency and I am glad we managed the long distance planning even though it was not always easy with me. I would love to thank you again, girls. I have never felt such a big gratitude and joy! Thank you again! I hope there will be at least small opportunity to stay in touch a bit in a future. With love, Katka & Gui

I would like to thank to all suppliers who were part of this wedding. Thanks to them all dreams came true.

Australian fairytale wedding at Czech Chateau

Jordan and Brenton are an Australian couple who contacted me in order to organize their wedding in the Czech Republic. They chose Czech Republic because they fell in love with it when they were travelling around Europe. I knew they had been looking for a romance, a history and a place for a great party. I suggested some options for a perfect wedding in Prague and also around. Then I suggested a combination of these 2 castles ideal for wedding in Czech, which are not too far from each other. They immediately fell in love with that combination and planning could begin. Not an easy planning, let me tell you! Combination of 2 popular chateaus where you have to bring everything  externally is challenging but so worth it!

It was a real destination wedding as the couple couldn’t come even once before the wedding so I did everything  for them – driving around all the possible venues, tasting the food, wine, cakes, meeting all suppliers and venues.

The wedding of Jordan and Brenton was elegant, subtle, romantic and sophisticated in details. It was a 4-day wedding, all guests were from Australia and were very pleasant. We had a lot of fun together in those 4 days. It was one of the most demanding wedding of last summer, mainly due to several locations, two wedding venues and the early time of the wedding ceremony. I had been sleeping in South Bohemia for 3 nights and accompanied the guests at all events and I must say that after that time I spent with them, it was difficult to say goodbye.

  • 1st day I planned a welcome dinner where all guests could get to know each other well and have a rest after a long journey.
  • 2nd day I planned a day trip to Český Krumlov with dinner and drinks on the terrace with a city center view.
  • The wedding itself took place on the 3rd day. And it was THE perfect wedding, even better than in Jordan’s dreams as she said :-). Check it yourselves. I  hope you will inspire you.

We chose a colour palette very subtle and elegant, as well as the rest of the decorations. For the ceremony I suggested to use golden chairs, for a reception we have chosen others. The white carpet could not be missing. The ceremony was carried out according to Australian customs, several readings, which were read by family members, mutual vows and of course the exchange of rings.

After the ceremony, guests took a walk around the Chateau, and had something to eat and drink (including a special pink drink of course :-)), gentlemen had beer, whiskey, etc. The newlyweds had time to take pictures in front of their dream Chateau.

It was raining at the end of the cocktail hour, we had to use a plan B – move all the cocktail tables and decorations to the restaurant, arrange umbrellas for guests and newlyweds, arrange a bus and cars to reach the hill (Which is forbidden but we made it happen!), while it was super heavily raining. I will never forget these moments, and that is why I love my job. Seeing everyone so happy we managed even such difficult situation.

After arrival to the main Chateau (our base where everyone was accomodated) a second cocktail hour began. Guests had a time to chat, have a glass of pink champagne, eat some canapés, use a polaroid, or go relax to their rooms. After that, the wedding official dinner, the main part the bride was the most looking forward to, began.

For a wedding reception, we chose again a decent design, all in white-cream-powder pink-gold colour palette. There were candles everywhere, and a special lighting to create an elegant, almost magical atmosphere. I chose white-cream wooden chairs, pink napkins, gold carved name tags and golden cutlery could not miss as well as other golden decorations.

We chose biscuits with white-pink watercolor pattern and golden slices as a gift for guests.


There were many speeches during the wedding reception, which were really worth it. There was an incredibly positive and cheerful atmosphere which I will always remember. The groom thanked to me and my colleague Jana and gave us an amazing Australian present – the UGG boots. Thank you! Not just for a gift, but for everything.

There was an open air music after the wedding reception for a while. The newlyweds had their very first dance as a married couple, a throwing of a bouquet and a cutting of a wedding cake took place outside too. It was a time of romance.

The wedding cake was inspired by the bride’s dress, the bottom part represented her skirt, pearls her shoes and belt. The golden stripe on top was a minimalist detail to connect beautifully the whole wedding.

And then the real Australian party began.

It took a year to plan this wedding, it was very hard demanding work, but on the other hand I enjoyed it, because Jordan and Brenton were great, well-organized, they knew what they wanted, but were open to new ideas and an advice too. It was a joy to plan it and organize it for them. Afterall, I feel sad that our cooperation reached the end. On the other hand, I was assured by many guests, I am their family member now, and when I go to Australia, I must stop by. It was a real gift to meet people so relaxed, pleasant, positive and cheerful. It was a dream wedding for me.

Thanks  for all your trust, kindness and love :-* it was simply magical…

If you would like to read some testimonials, here are some I received:

1) Text message from the newlyweds from the morning after wedding:

Good morning Lucie, Brenton and I just wanted to say a massive THANK YOU for everything you have done for us. The whole event was a massive success and we couldn’t have done it without you. It was perfect in every way. Every guest mentioned to me what a good job you did, and how much of a good time they were having. Xxxxxx

2) Words of the bride:

Let me start by saying, Lucie and her business is one in a million. Lucie and Jana planned our 4 day wedding in South Bohemia for us, whilst we live in Australia. We brought 50 guests (adults, teenagers and babies) with us to Prague and transported everyone to South Bohemia for our 4 day event. Nothing was ever too hard or difficult for Lucie and her team, we were treated like royalty over the 4 days she was personally with us. Over the course of planning our wedding, we were given expert advice around what needed to be done (from budgets, to locations, venues, suppliers, what to expect etc). I never felt in the dark about anything even though we were so far away. Lucie knew my vision and we clicked, everything was better than I ever imagined it could be. To this date we still get comments from guests about how spectacular our wedding was, and how helpful Lucie was over the 4 days with questions and keeping everyone informed. The events were planned to the smallest detail; many dietary requirements, beautiful welcome bags in the hotel for the guests, even sewing my wedding dress back in place when the groom decided to step on my train!). Literally couldn’t fault her, I will enjoy the process and enjoy your day fully without worrying about a thing.

3) Words of the groom:

Lucie managed our wedding whilst we live in Australia. We were recommended her after first liaising with a planner who was not up to our standards. Lucie managed a four-day wedding in a private chateau for us and it was absolutely amazing. Jana her assistant was also terrific. We have become very good friends with her over the process as well and if we could do the entire thing over again we would. If 10 stars was an option Lucie would get 10 stars. Do yourself a favour and use her, you will not regret it. AMAZING!!! Thanks Lucie!


I would like to thank to all suppliers who were part of this wedding. Thanks to them all dreams came true.
