Yara and Jim are a lovely couple who gave us an opportunity to be a part of their wedding day.
It is not surprising that they chose Wedding in Villa Dalmacija, in Split, Croatia for their destination wedding, since Jim is originally from Croatia and Yara, our bride comes from Brazil.
She couldn’t hide her delight of this beautiful mediteran city.
With pride and excitement, Yara and Jim invited their closest guests – family and friends from all over the world, to the sunny, warm, Mediterranean city by the sea – Split. Much has been written about the beauty of Croatia, its climate, flora, sea and architecture. Everyone, who lay their eyes on its natural beauty becomes mesmerised. It is accessible to everyone in a relatively short time. Perfect for wedding photographers.
The Adriatic coast in summer is a marvellous place to have your wedding and a perfect honeymoon destination. Although getting hitched can result in spiralling costs, it’s no wonder they were thinking outside the box and chose Split for their fabulous destination. This way, they had a paradise wedding. The wedding industry in Croatia is booming, with more couples seeing the beauty and value of having a wedding in Split. Of course, getting hitched comes with several worries – different customs, paperwork, language, but if you have the right wedding planner and people helping you with the organisation, wedding in Split (and Croatia in general) can be surprisingly stress-free.
Split wedding venues
And when it comes to locations, what a choice Split offers! With timeless heritage and stunning natural beauty, spectacular sites are all over the Adriatic coast, and the choices of locations are simply breathtaking. Split as a city leads to incredibly beautiful Croatian islands – Brac, Hvar, Vis, etc., which makes it a very popular Croatian destination. The city itself has a lot to offer – especially the old part of the town which are perfect for taking wedding photos. As for hosting and organising the wedding, Split has beautiful wedding venues, and the most famous are Villa Dalmacija weddings and Meštrović gallery weddings.
Getting married in Villa Dalmatia
From happily ever after fantasy to sworn oaths as well as graceful cheers when you hear “You may kiss the bride”, there is no word that can express the importance of a wedding ceremony for couples. Although the most important part of the day is the ceremony and tying the knot, modern weddings are all about these aspects that bring the idea of an elegant wedding and what couples want to be done. One of the many criteria, and we would say, one of the most important ones, to have a glamorous wedding is choosing the right location (and wedding photographer and videographer) and when it comes to Villa Dalmacija, this wedding venue ticks all the boxes in providing a magnificent experience. Yara and Jim opted for Villa Dalmatia, located right next to the sea, away from the bustle of the city, in a secluded spot bordered by a large Mediterranean park on one side and the sea on the other. This Mediterranean refuge is a wedding dream for many couples as well as wedding photographers.
Villa Dalmacija wedding venue
Choosing Villa for your wedding is the smartest thing many couples can do as there are many settings and locations you can choose from for your special day and Villa Dalmacija is no exception. It was the former residence of the ex-president of Yugoslavia Josip Broz Tito, so you can be sure that this place holds specific historical memories. At the same terrace, there was once Winston Churchill sitting while Indira Gandhy enjoyed the view and taking a walk to the nearby forests. This beautiful beachfront villa is the most majestic wedding location in over 1700 years of Split history. This former presidential mansion and summer residence offers exclusivity, architectural and natural beauty, as well as the sense of style.
Famous Split wedding venue
The Villa’s position is on the southern part of the slopes of the Marjan forest in Split surrounded by the beautiful turquoise sea. With more than a hundred years old history, Villa Dalmatia became one of the famous wedding venues in Split and Croatia in general. Surrounded by the walls and the big garden it provides complete privacy from luring eyes. Except for the beautiful terrace that is surrounded by colonnades hosting a fountain in the middle, this, we would say, multidimensional building offers many solutions for dinners, banquets, receptions and ceremonies. In case of the bad weather, Villa Dalmacija can host ceremonies internally providing a venue with a gorgeous library and a beautiful fireplace. It’s suitable for up to 130 guests.
Wedding ceremony in Villa Dalmatia
The interior of the villa is modern and enriched with floral decorations and lighting. At the same time, the big park surrounds the villa is rich with Mediterranean plants and different types of trees, creating a perfect setting for the wedding ceremonies, especially during the spring. Here, you can have a real spring wedding fairy tale. There were numerous possibilities when it comes to wedding photography; the mood and the setting are simply gorgeous. As for the ceremony, there was no shortage of undiluted, pure emotions as Yara and Jim were in an excellent mood the entire day. They were never shy to show their love and affection to all present, so we managed to take outstanding shots of their emotions.
Wedding decoration in Villa Dalmatia
On the seaside of Villa Dalmatia is the dock. With the help of the talented decorator Mirella floral, Yara and Jim decided to set up their wedding arch and say their “I do’s” as close as possible to the sound of the sea. From the décor and food to people, Yara and Jim had gotten the best of it all. In a simple, elegant satin wedding dress and with a smile she hadn’t stripped of all day, Yara was out of breath. Green-white floral arrangements and fragrant combinations also gave Villa Dalmacija an elegant feel, with this great central plant – Begunvillea. Due to its vibrant colour and incredible beauty, it was like the plant was playing with light and sun. At one moment we had this feeling we discovered the pure Mediterranean soul in this unforgettable venue.
