Autumn Fairytale at the Castle
A mystical land filled with Castle magic and the lightness of modern fairytales.
Wedding Styled Shooting by Destination Wedding Romania
Everybody dreams to live a love story like no other; and this is what we believe at Destination Wedding Romania. Our Wedding Styled shooting was focused on a finding a different approach to the traditional “wedding in a castle” scenario. We wanted to bring a touch of lightness and subtle elegance rather than indulging in the typical sumptuous castle wedding; the aim was to offer a refreshing option to the soon-to-be newlyweds that are in search of creating their own magic.
Our event specialists here at Destination Wedding Romania, Elena & Andreea, with their passion for travel and endless quest for intimacy and elegance, scout around Romania & beyond in search for those authentic places where unique celebrations can be created. For this Wedding Styled Shooting, they chose the Cantacuzino Castle, set at the foot of the mystical Carpathian Mountains, in a rural Romania that still recalls the medieval charms.
The beautiful interiors of the Cantacuzino Castle, Romania
Agreat example of the Neo-Romanian style, mixing Byzantine, late Italian Renaissance, Oriental and local rustic elements, the castle stands as a witness of the Belle Epoque, ready to become animated on special occasions. Sculpted oak doors, stained glass windows, fireplaces decorated with mosaic and gold foils, are all there to set the tone for a lavish event. And all this beauty is enriched by lush and imposing nature of the mountains..
No wonder that Cantacuzino Palace was our option for this Wedding Styled shooting! The serene panoramic view from the main balcony made us to instantly fall in love with this venue. We thought: what can be more romantic than celebrating your love surrounded by majestic mountains, in a 1900 castle?

The focus point of the styled shooting was the balcony of the castle, with view on Caraiman peak. In notes of pink and burgundy, with hints of green, and copper, the styling calls for poetry and the abundance of autumn; the stone columns have been dressed in floral arrangements, to resonate with the landscape and create that out-of- fairytale frame for the couple. There is a certain sense of fluidity, and a touch of art nouveau thrill: the floral ornaments of the bridal dress and the delicate pearl hair accessories call for a relaxed charm with a vintage touch; in other words, just like the invitation says: “nothing fancy, just love”..
Autumn wedding theme with rich deep colors of burgundy and a touch of soft romantic pink
The inspiration behind the color theme was to show that a castle wedding doesn’t necessarily have to be dark and classic. Our photographer ioanaporav.weddingphotography, along with our talented florist @las_floristas did an amazing job brightening up the castle with bold colors and soft lights. We share a love for rich, vibrant colors and it was fun to incorporate them in a sophisticated and romantic venue.
The models are professional ballet dancers; their elegance and expression is calling for the creative spirit that naturally unfolds in all love stories; and it fits just right with the concept of the Styled shooting.
