This unreal styled wedding shoot in Croatia was inspired by the untouched beauty of nature and the rich cultural and historical heritage that Brijuni Islands has to offer. From the first visit to the magical place that is the Brijuni National Park, the creatives behind this shoot realized that it would coordinate perfectly to bring their vision to life. Each historic period has left some trace in this place and we can say that over time the island archipelago has become a unique open-air museum.

Istria offers many breathtaking wedding locations, but when you step on to the Brijuni Islands, it seems that time has stopped, and that you are in a unique place, almost indescribable with words. Amongst the various locations that this island has to offer, we were primarily inspired by the beauties of the ancient remains of the Church of St. Mary and the Byzantine Castrum.

The flower decorations included light and pastel tones such as light pink, peach and light blue with the addition of various dehydrated flowers. Following current trends, we wanted to use materials like Plexiglas, mirrors and crystal that created a perfect contrast with the surrounding stones, pillars and walls – a touch of elegance where time seems to stand still.

Golden details gave even more light to the whole set-up by adding a luxurious touch to the table designed for a romantic and intimate evening and a large amount of candles was used to set a romantic and elegant atmosphere.

For “the ceremony” they chose the unique location of the Byzantine Castrum. They wanted the focus to remain on the beauty of nature so they played with the decoration shapes inspired by the environment. The bridal dress with its simplicity and elegance fits perfectly into the whole story.

A place like this can almost be forgotten, but the inspiration here can be found on every corner and nothing leaves you indifferent. That is why we think that Brijuni Islands, as well as the whole of Istria, is a great location for luxury destination weddings.
