Aristocratic Castle Wedding in Germany

Immerse yourself in the luxurious 18th century era with this beautiful and elegant wedding at the Nischwitz Castle in Germany

Not far away from the big and beautiful city of Leipzig, there is this stunning Rococo-style palace. A true gem in a small town in Saxony. Reminisce of the past, where the castle was the scene of many glamorous festivities, this wedding shooting was created upon the idea of a luxe wedding of the 18th century. Glitzy jewels, prestigious dancers, the dulcet sound of an orchestra… and let’s not forget about the breath-taking evening dresses swinging and flowing in the rhythm of the music. The impression that we get from this castle had to be incorporated in our design concept of this wedding. We not only tried to reflect the colors and the architecture of this palace, but also capture the mood the the grand balls that once took place in the halls of Nischwitz Castle.  Classy, playful and elegant were the adjectives to describe overall mood we wanted to create.

The pictures were created by talented destination wedding photographers Mila & Stephan from Vivid Symphony. We really love their feminine aesthetic and touching emotions they show in these pictures.

Luxurious wedding at a German wedding castle with a vivid color theme

The idea of a colorful vivid theme and the color concept, that creates a beautiful play of different colors is based on the decoration of the garden room. The walls show frescoes like the Liberation of Andromeda, Europe, Syrenen, a river god, Icarus and Daedalus and different sea deities. They are painted with a limited color palette using mint, blush and grey tones. The ceiling instead hosts a very colorful and expressive fresco.

The colors of the interior design are mirrored in the color palette of the design concept. We used white for the plasterwork as base color and combined it with blush, coral, dusty pink and golden accents for a luxurious touch.

An elegant table decoration and floristry to match the overall luxurious wedding theme

A castle wedding in Germany like this one requires an elegant table decoration to fit to the luxurious theme. The tableware we chose is from the Ornament collection by Portuguese porcelain manufacturer Vista Alegre, who is well know for its sophisticated design. The pattern of the collection is inspired by the ceilings of the Vista Alegre Palace, which is crested like Nischwitz castle with white plaster. The subtlety of the white relief on the plates perfectly reflects the plasterwork that can also be found at Nischwitz palace and with is delicate shape and unique details the tableware graces the table. The small golden candleholders with the thin candlesticks and the decorative golden cutlery add just the right amount of classiness.

Flowers included in the design are English garden roses, white and coral peonies, foxglove, and Japanese ranunculus. White tableware is combined with golden accents.

The styling of the bride

The styling of the bride is held very subtle and natural. Her make-up enhances her natural beauty and striking features. The wedding dress by Papilio is playful, feminine and classy.  A flutter sleeve dress with delicate embellishments is just irresistible, isn’t it? Golden accessories match the golden accents within the color concept and elevate her wedding look. Pretty heels with tulle bows  from Bella Belle Elise give the bride a playful twist.

Cute little details sometimes make a huge difference

The wedding cake by Suesse Verzauberung, which means sweet enchantment in German, is a 3tier classic design that includes fine details like a painting of one of the wall frescoes of the location and white plasterwork made of sugar.

The stationary by Lettering GRG from Madrid is made with much love to detail. The letterpress print with it’s golden crest of the couples monogram combined with hand calligraphed details made with golden ink just add that special touch of luxury.
