stanjel_poroka_slovenia_weddingŠtanjel is one of the oldest and most picturesque settlements in the Slovenian Karst region. Dominantly placed on the top of the 364 meters high Turn hill, the Church of St. Daniel is seen far around. Houses positioned in a shape of a staircase on the Turn’s slopes make the town even more romantic. Its geographic position enabled Štanjel the control over Italian border and probably the walls surrounding it were set up to protect it. It remains unknown when the walls were built, but Štanjel is the only fortified town in the Karst region.

Enchanted medieval Štanjel has been attracting newly weeded couples for years. Getting married in Štanjel is more than just simply pledging your vows!


Ceremony description

The wedding ceremony can be performed the way it used to be. The castle wedding is a special event that will remain in the memory of every guest. The newlyweds take a carriage ride to the castle and the bride and the groom are accepted by the Count, the Countess, the castle quintet and the wind instrument players greeting them with loud wedding fanfare and wedding march. Then the Count and the Countess give the couple some useful advices. Registrars in Štanjel guarantee the marriage to be solid as Karstic stone and take no reclamation and the newlyweds can test the strength of their love on the bridge in the beautiful Ferrari garden. After the civil marriage the rice and sounds of wind instruments will accompany the couple to the courtyard and champagne toast follows. Girls dressed in medieval garments with lilac in their hair will perform their dance. Later the man with two white doves meets the newlyweds. Releasing of the white doves symbolizes the commitment between a man and a woman to respect, support and love each other for life. When the wedding doves fly away, a new journey begins, a common new journey of the husband and wife.
