Weddings at Lake Bled, Slovenia
Looking for a fairy-tale wedding location, unique landscape, and professional service?
We are here to create an unforgettable wedding day for you and your guests.
Lake Bled offers many beautiful venues for civil wedding ceremonies. You can choose to get married at a fairy-tale castle, on the terrace or in the garden of a luxury hotel, or in the classically styled town hall.
The church on Bled Island is the primary, truly special and unique wedding location in Bled. There are, of course, other, equally stunning, options, like the spacious neo-Gothic church of St. Martin on the lake shore.
“An old legend says that where Lake Bled is today, in ancient times, there was no water, but a green valley. Amid this valley, a hill with a large rock was rising above the surrounding meadows.
On moonlit nights, mountain fairies would gather around this rock and dance.
In the valley and on the steep hill slopes, shepherds grazed their sheep during the day. When the fairies discovered the sheep had been grazing also around the rock, they got furious and ordered the shepherds to fence the hill to keep the sheep away.
But the shepherds did not listen and left their sheep to graze on the hill until there was no grass left. One the following moonlit night, the fairies returned. While dancing on the hard, barren ground, the youngest and most beautiful fairy broke her leg.
Infuriated with the shepherds’ disobedience, the fairies decided to take revenge. From the nearby mountains, they summoned all the water, which rushed into the valley and flooded it, leaving above only the small hill with the rock.”
The mountain fairies surrounded the island hill and the rock, where they could from then on dance undisturbed on moonlit nights.“
