Philip & Claudi’s Vintage Vineyard Celebration

Today’s love story tells a tale of romance and visual radiance. Philip and Claudi tied the knot at the beautiful Lake Balaton in Hungary and invited 60 guests to share in a rustic, vineyard- chic celebration. Needless to say they felt overwhelmed by the love and helpfulness of their friends and family who all lend a helping hand to make their anticipated destination wedding a blissful experience. We love the neutral tones and natural elements that complement the scenic surroundings of their chosen location. Claudi was a true vision of beauty as she floated through the day in her elegant ivory gown. Philip is certainly one lucky man and Katinka Stone was there to capture every merry moment.

The Dress

My wedding dress was custom made by my mother-in-law. There are no words needed, because it could not be more special. Considering that our daughter was born just 6 months before the wedding and of course my figure was not what it use d to be. I totally loved my dress and so did Philip. I felt very pretty, just like a bride should and that’s the most important thing

The Love Story

Philip and I fell in love in September. It was a typical “love at first sight” kind of date at a funfair. Since then everything went very fast and after just 6 month we got engaged. It was our Easter-holiday in Hungary at Lake Balaton. Philip took me to a beautiful little church on a hill in Fonyod.  The view was amazing, with Lake Balaton below us, the beautiful blue sky and sunshine. It was a perfect day. I did not expect anything but suddenly he took my hand, held me tight and said: “Marry me Claudi”… and of course I said “Yes!”.

My most memorable moment was when I was waiting for Claudi and seeing my beautiful bride for the first time, as she walked down the aisle.

The weather on our wedding day was kind of ‘up-and-down’. I think it wanted to tell us: “For better or worse”…

Budget Tips

If you are able to do a d.i.y. wedding, go for it. Of course it’s cheaper and you will certainly feel very proud to see your personal touches in every detail at the wedding. Always set aside enough money for a good photographer.
