bogensperk_wedding_slovenia_europaWedding at the Bogenšperk castle, a cultural monument of national importance, is something very special. True, every wedding is special, after all two paths get united into a single one, but getting married in a unique renaissance environment is something for the gourmets.

Bogenšperk castle today is not only a museum with a famous chapel and chivalry hall. It is also a very popular location for weddings, not only for the locals but foreigners as well. Attending one of the weddings here you will witness a joyful event. 

A carriage ride through the linden tree vista, wedding ceremony in the castle library, former residence of the prominent Janez Vajkard Valvasor, the church marriage in the castle chapel, the photo session under the castle arches and the castle balcony and the festivities in the chivalry or other tastefully furnished halls in the castle, the reception at the Lord of castle and his blessing – all of this can be your wedding!

 

Your wedding is your fairytale. Experience it at the castle Bogešperk!
