About:

The Konopiste castle is located 44 km south-east of Prague (60 min driving). Castle was originally founded as a gothic fortress guarding a nearby town of Benesov. Being founded at the end of the 13th century by Tobias of Benesov, it was built at the beginning of the 14th century, following the model of french castles called “castels”.

The first touch to a medieval structure of the castle was made in the 15th century by Jiri (George) of Sternberk and was followed by Hodejovsky family in the 17th century, who converted the castle into a renaissance mansion. However, the most significant alteration took place in the 18th when members of the Vrtba family rebuilt the castle into a baroque residence.

The utterly most important and famous owner of the Konopiste Castle was the archduke Fratisek (Franz) Ferdinand d’Este, a successor to the Austro-Hungarian throne whose assassination in Sarajevo in 1914 became a pretext of the the World War I. This man bought the Konopiste domain in 1887 from the Lobkowitzs family and converted it into a magnificent seat of a Heir.

The Chambers were richly decorated with the collections inherited from the Modena’s archdukes of d’Este and numerous hunting trophies hanging on the walls as silent witnesses of Franz Ferdinand´s hunting passion.

Every space is flooded by sunlight coming from every side and reflections from the water in the moat surrounding the castle on three sides.

Wedding ceremony 

Ceremony can be arranged basically anywhere at the chateau.

Wedding reception

The three main common spaces of the chateau (The main hall, the breakfast room and the library) are large enough to cater for large event, preserving at the same time a very intimate, domestic scale and lots of cozy corners.

The main building dates back to XVI centur, with 3 wings and 2 towers, and it is surrounded by a water moat.

Plan of the owners are more ambitious – they imagine a large series of different gardens, taking up step by step all the outdoor spaces between tge various buildings, each garden with itw own feeling and atmosphere. Main models and inspirations are the wonderful gardens of England, created through the XX century around old country houses and manors with endless fantasy and invention and the „potagers“ or ornamental kitchen gardens of France, where vegetables are grown for their beauty too, mixed with flowers.

Starting from 2003 czech and international artists have been invited to stay at Trebesice, in individua lor group residences, for a few weeks or some months, to create artworks and site specific installations. The owners believe contemporary art os the best way to bring back new life and new sense to old buildings which have been made empty by recent history and aimless by the changes in agricultural technologies.

Hello Andrea:

We are finally settling back into regular life in Canada! Jeremiah came down with a sinus infection right when we returned and between that and unpacking and family events, we have been quite busy. We can’t believe it was only two weeks ago that we were sitting and having lunch together at Kotleta!

We both wanted to thank you once again for your amazing support, help, encouragement and the coordination that you provided throughout the last year, and most importantly, during our actual wedding celebrations. All of our guests commented on how professional, calm, and pleasant you were, and I know that both of us so appreciated how you handled everything on October 5; all the small requests and last minute changes. At the end, when people here in Canada ask us how things went for the wedding, we respond: “better than we could have planned or imagined”. You and your assistant truly handled everything and it was absolutely magical for us. The guests said that everything was like an actual fairytale!

Also, Dmitri had said it would take a few months to get all the photos over to us, but we were wondering if you could please ask him if its possible for us to have one or two of his favorite shots now (preferably from the ceremony)? We want to mail thank you cards to everyone who sent us a gift (and some of them weren’t at the wedding) and so we wanted to send along a few printed photos. Can you please check with him if its possible?

Also, Leos and his assistant were amazing!! Do you have any idea when we can expect the “highlights” video?? I know Leos said the full video would take around six months, but I remember something about the highlight video being much soon? We are waiting every day for that haha!

Thank you again!

Regards,

Monika & Jeremiah

Dear Andrea

We have finally gotten to sit down and reflect upon our wedding day and we would like to share some impressions with you, especially as you could not had been there in person.

Firstly and foremostly, we would like to highlight the fantastic professionalism and friendliness of Bara, who managed the whole day with absolute grace and was simply amazing. This impression was not only our own, but many of our guests told us how lovely and professional she was during the event. We would like to acknowledge her for also keeping us confident that all will go well from the start of the day until the very end when we were closing up. Especially so as she had no sleep the night before, she was a real trooper and you must be really glad to have her in your team! We also appreciate Misa for stepping in at such short notice. Thank you and well done.

Secondly, thank you for the fantastic preparation of the day. We know you would had loved to be there in person and are sorry you couldn’t. Glad to know though that you and your family feel better. We must also acknowledge the recommendations you made regarding photos and video – having Petr, Zina and Libor there was great fun and the pictures are amazing.

Thirdly, DJ messer was also fun and obviously enjoyed our choice of funk based tunes, it was great 🙂

Fourthly, villa richter’s staff were professional and our guests reflected upon that as well. We would like to thank them for that.

Fotonaut – a real hit!

Last but not least – what a ride! Thank you for working through all the preparations with us and making our best day of our lives happen in such a style! Thank you, Andrea!!!

Best wishes for now,

Bara and Pete

Hi Andrea,

Thank you very much for your arrangements and being so nice to us (especially for your patient w/ my many of questions :p). We are still enjoying the moment 😀

Would you please help us to thanks the Officiator, Michal, and the cameraman, Marek, once more again (I m not sure I recall their names correctly, sorry). As they do really good job in our ceremony, and we are looking forward to the videos too :).

Also, would you please help to let Mark knows that we are not going to disclose our wedding ceremony videos and pics on our Facebook yet, it is because I told my relatives that we will marriage in Sep (of course my mom knows we do it in June), and I told them this trip is only for pre-wedding photos. And I will let Mark knows when and which videos he can upload to Facebook later.

Once again, thanks a lot. Wish your business keeps doing well. 😀

Cheers,

Elliott
