Modern wedding variety at Albrechtsberg Castle
Well-tended gardens, endless stone staircases, ornate decorations, light-flooded chambers, historic busts and imposing statues – this is how Albrechtsberg Palace shows itself from its most beautiful side.
With beautiful details, wedding planner Isabel Merfort underlines the fairy-tale ambience. We marvel at a stylish variety of modern wedding inspirations, gorgeous floral arrangements by Die Blumenbinderei Dresden and elegant stationery by Lettering by GRG, captured in stunning images by Anette Zollfeldt.
From Isabel Merfort: “Situated high above the Elbe in the midst of a magnificent park landscape, Albrechtsberg Palace is one of the most magnificent palaces in Dresden. This estate is considered an exotic among the numerous baroque palaces in the Saxon state capital. Prince Albrecht of Prussia had the palace built between 1850 and 1854 out of love for his second wife Rosalie, so that they could live a life together despite the fact that they were not married according to their status. He thus created an architectural jewel of late classicism for them and for today’s bridal couples. The magnificent halls and salons with the sunny panoramic terraces characterize the unique ambience of the listed property and recommend the castle, built for love, all year round for festive marriages and wedding ceremonies.
Good to know – because castle weddings are all the rage in the upcoming 2022 wedding season. But castle wedding does not have to be Cinderella! Rather, the combination of a classically elegant castle setting with a simple, modern design concept is increasingly becoming the focus of the wedding industry. Instead of white carriage and kitschy ambience, minimalist decorative elements or table decorations in Modern Chic create a whole new atmosphere.
Our styled shoot at Albrechtsberg Castle also reflects that modern interpretation of the classic Sissi wedding. Fresh and elegant instead of opulent and overloaded.
Let yourself be enchanted for a moment and take a look at the beautiful world of pictures by Annette Zollfeldt.”
