Tie the Knot, Krakow Style!

1 min read    13 comments

Krakow has long held a reputation as a city of romance. Home of the majestic Wawel Castle, and situated on the lovely Vistula River, in the months of spring and summer, Krakow is the perfect setting for a beautiful wedding - or even in winter if your idea of a perfect honeymoon is snowboarding in Zakopane!

But if organizing a wedding is difficult enough on its own, organizing a wedding in another country (especially one with a language as difficult as Polish) can be overwhelmingly stressful. Luckily, we at Cracow Life can help you with all the tricky details so that all you have to do is show up, put on that beautiful white dress, and enjoy the day you've been waiting for for ages!

Above: Just like in the old days...

Whether you'd like a grand church wedding or a small private ceremony, a reception for half the city or just your closest friends, we can help you with booking the venue, booking the reception hall, booking a hotel in Krakow for you and your guests (or an apartment in Krakow for the in-laws and distant cousins), ordering a cake and flowers, or even organizing custom tours for you and your guests - just about anything you need! Want to go on a romantic hot air balloon ride on the Big Day? No problem!

Just send us an e-mail with your wedding dreams and we'll make them a reality!

And don't forget, Krakow is also the perfect place to stage your stag or hen night - with more bars per square metre than any city in Europe - and our friends at Crazy Stag do 'em better than anyone!

I confirm !! We had our wedding in Cracow and it was marvellous! Any time we meet our friends and fsmily members who participated in the event refer to our wedding as the best ever. I realise it may be just their courtesy but honestly it was amazing. We loved the city, the venue the wedding was held (Hotel Stary), the old church, the live band (forgot their name), the photographer David and Marry Me Studio wedding film crew who captured the entire event ( we followed Amy's recommendation). Jana check the wedding studio as they recommended us the bilingual dj who played music when food was served as I can' remind his name right now. Yeap, I strongly recommend Cracow for your wedding!

Hi Ann, I saw your comment and was wondering which church did you get married in? We both are native English speakers and are looking for church that can conduct our ceremony in English. It would be great, if you can tell me the name of it and any contacts that you have. Thank you, Katie

HI ! When we were getting married in Cracow we booked the place first and the manager of the wedding venue in Cracow recommended us the wedding film crew Marry Me Studio they were based in Cracow so we could meet and discuss. I remember the name well as they helped us finding not only amazing live band but lighting company for our wedding and also one of Cracow best wedding photographers ( I think :)). It's like a chain, you find one good company and they can help you out organising your wedding even though you have no wedding planner :) So again, get Cracow wedding film studio I wrote about and they will do it for you for free, thatis how it was with me and Michael.
