But the process of planning your destination wedding in Istria can sometimes appear very stressful. By hiring a wedding planner you get rid of doubts and stress.

In this blog we share the story of our dear newlyweds Petra & Milan. They entrusted their whole wedding organization process to us. That way they were able to spend the whole wedding planning period in joy and laughter.
Immediately after the engagement, Petra and Milan set off with a team of organizers from Flammeum to tour the venues. As soon as they narrowed down the choice of venues, they started working out the whole concept of the elegant wedding. They conveyed their wishes to us in detail. They described to us how they imagine their day and the utterance of the fateful ‘Yes‘ and left us with full confidence to plan their wedding.
Elegant wedding venue in Istria
The newlyweds were already well prepared and crystalized their expectations for the wedding. This enabled them to avoid many doubts when choosing a wedding venue. Shortly after the first meeting, during their first visit, they chose a romantic Villa Polesini as their elegant wedding venue.
The newlyweds dreamed of an outdoor wedding. Villa Polesini is charmingly decorated, but its surroundings are its true trump card. The villa is surrounded by gardens, shaded by nearby trees. The villa is located on the edge of the peninsula and therefore offers a gorgeous view over the Adriatic Sea. Therefore, Villa Polesini easily met and exceeded our newlyweds’ criteria!
We managed to swiftly determine the places in the villa’s gardens, where the wedding ceremony and the wedding dinner will take place. An additional advantage of the villa is that the gardens have abundant space to accommodate tables, chairs, gazebo, dance floor and other equipment, such as lighting and speakers, without guests having to get crowded, regardless of whether the wedding takes place in the gardens or indoors, in halls of the villa. At the end of the celebration, the villa shined again and showed another advantage. The villa is located in the middle of a tourist location. Therefore, it is surrounded by numerous hotels and apartments, so the newlyweds had no problem allocating the accommodation for their guests.
The newlyweds chose an elegant wedding decoration, which ideally complemented the interior and surroundings of the villa. The selection of flowers was dominated by hydrangeas, peonies, roses, astilbes and mini roses in powder-pink shades. Golden decorative elements complemented the rich floral arrangements, which contributed to the glamor and elegance of the gala dinner.
The wedding ceremony was located in the garden of the villa. A lavishly decorated gazebo enriched the ceremony. It left no one indifferent. The gazebo is a very important part of the decoration, as it is the center of attention throughout the ceremony. The gazebo framed the newlyweds and godparents.
The idyllic image of the ceremony was completed by the bride in a gorgeous princess wedding dress with a discreet tiara. The groom chose an elegant black suit, which fit perfectly with the wedding dress. The photos below evoke the aura, which prevailed during the ceremony.
Wedding dinner and celebration
During the ceremony and finger-food, the band Febra entertained the newlyweds and guests. The band led the celebration with a cheerful musical repertoire. With the first beats of the band, the guests have overflowed the dance floor. They haven’t left the dance floor until the early morning hours for nothing else than just for dinner and cake.
Last-minute change of plan due to the bad forecast
Due to the volatile and uncertain weather forecast before the wedding, the newlyweds decided to move the gala dinner inside the villa. Dinner was set in a beautiful hall with elaborate wallpaper, which doubled-down as an excellent backdrop for decoration. In addition to the sumptuous decoration that enriched the tables, the ingenious and careful arrangement of lighting further emphasized the elegance of the hall. Lighting design is an extremely important segment of any wedding, as it can accentuate the beauty or hide the flaws of any wedding venue.
Popular singer Jole, who arrived at midnight, proved to be cherry on top of the wedding! He was in charge of ensuring that the great atmosphere lasts until the early morning hours. He moved everyone to keep singing and dancing. A wedding cake and a sweet corner have sweetened up this elegant wedding. The sweet corner had great variation of cookies, which delighted every guest.
We did our best to evoke the atmosphere of this elegant wedding. We hope that the photos will serve as an inspiration for your big day.
