Symbolic Ceremonies

Symbolic Ceremonies are not legally binding marriages. These ceremonies are provided as an option for couples who wish to exchange vows in a romantic setting but are legally unable to marry in Slovenia for any reason.

As these are Symbolic Ceremonies there is much scope for variation. They can follow the same traditional format as for a civil or church blessing, or you can develop a service that reflects your own personal style. If you choose to develop your own service please understand that you must provide us with an outline of the ceremony at our request to ensure ourselves that no legal issues will arise. The ceremonies are led by people who are not authorised by the State to perform marriages and so have no legal basis. There are no limitations to the day or time with these Symbolic Ceremonies. Please contact us for more information.


How long does it take to organise a wedding?

The time required to organise a wedding depends on the proposed date, size and style you are seeking as well as your nationality. Primavera Bled can arrange small weddings for up to 15 guests with the standard services and a date outside of the peak season within 4 to 8 weeks. Please contact us for more information.

Peak season weddings from May to September, larger guest lists, and additional services all require a longer notification time to ensure the availability of services and venues on the requested date. You should plan to confirm your wedding date with Primavera Bled at least 6 months and preferably 1 year in advance.


We retain the right to cancel a wedding at any time if to continue would contravene any national laws or ethical considerations, with no refund of the initial deposit paid.

If the wedding is cancelled by the client couple there will be no refund of the initial deposit paid.
