Lovers of history, fine art, and the thought of a dreamy getaway in Prague, this editorial is for you. Anna of Pure Love Weddings looked to this historic chateau outside the city for inspiration, where pastel-hued walls and Baroque-era paintings set the tone for a most romantic scene. Thanks to Jakub Majweski for sharing these lovely images!

The history of the Chateau starts around 1715, when Count František Antonín Špork built La Maison de Bon Repos, which translates to House of Rest. Pastel fresco’s covering the walls, gilded architecture and soft morning light were filling up the space, as we entered the XVIII century chateau. We stood in awe of its Baroque interior—grand halls, intricate weathered details and dilapidated walls. It was obvious that Chateau Bon Repos was designed especially for intimate and luxurious wedding celebrations. We were left wondering what this place had seen in its years, who it had entertained, and how we were so lucky to be standing in its presence.

This Justin Alexander dress looks like two entirely different bridal ensembles, depending on when you wear the cape.

Inspired by the architecture and history of the venue, we decided to select a delicate color palette that embraced the natural beauty of the space surrounding us. Flowers and fruits were hand-picked from the gardens on the property grounds, to pull from the scenery’s natural elements and ensure that all the floral elements were cohesive within the surroundings. By adding the subtle touches of blue and peachy shades—we elevated the overall design. Our bride was dressed in two thoughtfully selected gowns—one from Justin Alexander and one from a polish designer Sylwia Kopczynska.
