A wedding is something beautiful, magical and unforgettable. It is the beginning of a new life together, the beginning of a new journey.


The castle wedding is held at the most beautiful spot in the castle – the belvedere platform, where mighty Counts of Celje used to walk, surrounded by the hills, mysterious history and eternal love.   


A breeze of the Middle Ages is a part of the Medieval wedding with a truly special ceremony. Fanfare sounds accompany the newlyweds and their guests to the solemn spot and the dancers show the ancient Dance of Love and Dance of the Bride.


The pompous fanfare sounds announce the arrival of the Count Herman I. and his daughter Barbara of Celje, wishing the newly weeded couple joy and happiness and presenting them with a symbolic gift on behalf of the mighty Celje family.


Selected music, exquisite castle services and an unforgettable day and beginning of a new common journey begins at the Celje Castle.  


Bring back to life the spirit of eternal love between Frederik and Veronika with us!


Ceremony description

The newlyweds and their guests are met in front of the castle gate. A person holding the Celje banner is standing in front of the castle gate until the Lady of the castle arrives accompanied by the sound of fanfare. Together they escort the newlyweds and their guests to the registrar. They are accompanied by a medieval wedding march. The bride and the groom and the witnesses are all dressed in the medieval costumes.


The castle announcer greets them and two dance shows follow (Introductory Dance of the Bride and a Cupid Dance – a dance of love and joy).


A classical wedding ceremony follows, all the time accompanied by a medieval music. The couple signs their names into the wedding book and makes a toast with the special crystal glasses, presented to the couple as a gift. 


After the ceremony fanfares announce the arrival of the Counts (Herman I. and Barbara of Celje), which present the newlyweds with a special present.


The medieval wedding ends in a group dance of all the wedding guests. After the ceremony a small treat follows, according to desires of the couple (champagne, wine, juice, water, fruits, snacks, etc.) as well as taking photos in the magical setting of the castle.


You can choose the location of the wedding anywhere in the castle. At the entrance to the castle a red carped is laid and the music echoes throughout the castle. Chairs with red cushions can be placed according to your wishes as well as floral decorations (on the tables, on the ground, etc.).
