Intimate wedding inspiration at Schloss Schönau


There is no better place for a stylish elopement than a castle. And when that castle resides in the middle of a beautiful English landscape garden, it makes everything so much better. Welcome to our boutique-style wedding in Schloss Schönau.

The place is a dream wedding location. An old castle, an astonishing park, a small lake with a boat, and a magnificent interior courtyard - that would make your celebration feel cozy and charming. Even more so, with a set of garden lights and a gorgeous table arrangement. Perfect inner courtyard wedding dinner. There were so many "hidden gems" for me as a wedding photographer. So many places to shoot my beautiful couple. From the stone fountain that brings memories of Italy to the beautiful windows overlooking the courtyard. From the gardens full of flowers to the castle's painting-like image, framed by trees and the lake creating an artistic foreground. 


It was a hot summer day, with typical temperatures over 30°C and a thunderstorm lingering on the horizon. But with a great team around you, even harsh conditions can feel like a breeze. And with a patient couple, even shooting in the rain is not a problem. Anything for beauty.
