Tie the Knot, Krakow Style!

1 min read    52 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!

You need to get paperwork from your local registry, and have that handed back to them 2 months before you plan on wedding then if has to be handed in to krakow registry personally 6 weeks before your date would you be thinking about doing it all yourself? Ann.

My advice would be absolutely krakow wedding was our dream and loved every moment of it and all went perfectly to plan everyone said it was well planned and beautiful, but I would recommend you have a polish wedding planner as she kept us right with the law on paper work and by law you need a translator to make sure you understand and sign papers and on the day it is done in polish and translated to English, I organized my flowers, restaurant, cake, hotel, photographer without planner and I would definitely recommend them but the planner kept me right with making sure it was all legal I couldn't have done that without her! She got us the translator and kept us right with time scale and apoitments with registry they are really strict! Ann.

Hi I’ve been krakow 4 times love it there that’s why I would like to get married there but we don’t want any thing else just the registry office then we will go do something together

Ann Marie Grant

Yes it is a beautiful place that is why we choose to go there and have no regrets, :) I don't think we could have done it without Angelica to help us with what we needed to do officially with the paperwork and timing and getting us a translator Halina helped me with flowers and she did an amazing job at a very cheap price when do you plan on getting married remember 6 weeks before wedding you have to go over with papers and sign at the registry Ann.

We were thinking of April 2020 I’m just concerned about the translation of the paperwork

Reply May 11th, 2019
Ann

Yes that is the only thing that you would need help with as it has to be a registered translator, and the registry is strict the address is, urzad stanu cywilnego , Lubelska 29, 30-003 Krakow i hope i have been of some help Ann.

Hi I shall send you the information you need, you won't regret it we loved every moment! The wedding planner can provide more but I found cheaper flowers, restaurant, photographer, cake. ect,, myself surprisingly cheaper than anything here! Give me a shout if you need any advice. We used Cracow weddings and her name is Angelica and she couldn't do more to help and keep us right with documentation and timing and translation good luck and congratulations. Ann Marie.

dworek białoprądnicki - h t t p s : / / d w o r e k . e u / - gorgeous civil registry office, cheap or free. You should call and ask them if they have a space and what documentation you will need to provide. Also, ask if they can provide witnesses. Good luck & congratulations!

Hi can you tell me how much notice is needed to organize a wedding?

Reply Oct 17th, 2018

Well, that depends on the company and your requirements as every wedding is different, even a simple registry office wedding might be available for the next week but might be booked for months. Plus you need to sort your paperwork. It can be totally spontaneous and happen the next day or it can take a year to organize. it depends on you, Anne.

Thank you for getting back to me there is a small group of us 5 at the moment could be more so looking for something small but special and the date is for 3rd of April next year so any help and advice would be appreciated from you! Ann.

Hi Ann, No problem. Well, as I suggested above there is a beautiful civil ceremony "office" which is more like a little palace on beautiful grounds. Dworek białoprądnicki - h t t p s : / / d w o r e k . e u / - it's cheap or free. If you prefer a more elaborate wedding or one in a church, then we reccommend talking to the experts: biuro@ceremonyconcept.pl Ask for Natalia Woźniak ;)

Hi there My fiancé and I love Krakow (we have been there a few times) and are thinking about getting married there next May or June. As we are both 50 years old and have been previously married, we want a small wedding in a registry office followed by a meal at our favourite restaurant.

my friends recently got married in a registry office wedding BUT there is a serious registry wedding hack! Most of them are in not so pretty offices but there's this one registry place which happens to be in a beautiful palace. with very pretty grounds and lots of big leaft trees. Its the exact same kinda place and system and everything... just happens to also be gorgeous! it's called... dworek białoprądnicki (https://dworek.eu/)

Hi me and my fiance are looking to get married in Cracow and are looking at where to get married. Any reccomendations? There will be a small group of us for the wedding. Also for reception and entertainment.

I would suggest looking at all the charming historical villages surrounding Krakow, there is so much ancient forest, river, valley... and it's pretty common to rent one of the gorgeous wooden villa/cottage/homesteads for the 2 day wedding/wedding party so that you have the wedding in the garden then feast & drink & make merry all night and everyone sleeps there together. There are also plenty of castles/palaces around for wedding pics & possibly even to rent for the wedding. The weather is absolutely perfect for an outdoor wedding in the spring summer and it really just does not get any more beautiful than the countryside here. Or if you're planning on doing it in winter - The Tatra mountains are very close by & it just oozes romance. If you're thinking more of a city wedding then many people take a horse carriage ride around the old town afterwards.

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.
