From Australia

When I was 12 years old I travelled to Slovenia with my family who had a conference to attend. I remember the moment we all set our eyes on the picturesque Lake Bled; it looked like something magical, from a fairytale. I dreamed (as every little girl does) of one day being a beautiful bride there. After that first trip, I came back on many occasions, visiting with family and friends.

15 years later, my wonderful husband Alex asked me to marry him and was a little surprised at my response, 'Yes of course! But only if we can marry at Lake Bled!' After seeing our family photos, he understood why and we married on the 21st of June this year.

Organising a wedding overseas would have been too difficult from Australia without the help of a wedding planner. Choosing Primavera Bled was an easy decision for us. They had excellent reviews, they were prompt and detailed in their correspondence and spoke at length with us over Skype conferences. In the months and then days leading up to the wedding, Matjaz (our assigned wedding consultant) took care of everything -nothing was ever too much trouble, including locating a nail technician at the very last minute! We were shown the registry office and were able to meet with the castle manager to plan out our wedding dinner. We also had make-up and hair trials for the wedding party. The hair and make-up specialists ensured that everything was exactly how we wanted.

Our day was absolutely perfect. With the help of Matjaz, Tjasa, our hair and makeup specialists and all of the camera and videographer crew (there were many!) everyone was able to relax and just enjoy the beautiful occasion. Everything was timed perfectly, moving from the registry to the island to the castle without feeling stressed or rushed.

Primavera Bled provide an incredibly professional and polished service while always being friendly and sensitive. We have continued our correspondence with Primavera Bled as they work with the videographer and photographer to finish our pieces.

Thanks to Primavera Bled we had the most perfect of weddings in the most perfect of places--more perfect than any 12 year old girl could ever dream of.
