But Saareck Castle is not only perfect for TV, but also for a special wedding. And that was probably what Sophie and René had in mind when they decided to have their wedding ceremony and reception at this beautiful place.
Getting Ready in the Castle
Saareck Castle would not be called guest house if they hadn't got any rooms. The have.And they are wonderful: 22 lovingly furnished guest rooms are available. The Nanking room was reserved for bride and her wedding dress - extremely stylishly furnished, with a view of the park and the Saar. With the support of her girls, Sophie quickly found her way into her dress and still had enough time for a glass of sparkling wine. At the same time two floors below René and the boys had their own Bubbly and some sandwiches - you see, everything was very relaxed. And if you are getting married at Villeroy & Boch and still have a few minutes until the wedding ceremony, then literally have to take a quick wedding photo in the bathtub.
The whole thing is captured by the video team of Daniel from Privido Weddings. Together at this wedding at Saareck Castle, we actually managed not standing in each other's way, nor being in each other's picture - a great collaboration that was really fun and unfortunately cannot be taken for granted. Kudos to you guys! You're awesome!
Champagne Reception Among Moose
Afterwards, everybody meets up for a champagne reception in the main hall of Saareck Castle. The room with it's high ceiling and the surrounding galleries on the upper floors is quite impressive. Between sparkling wine and snacks, the wedding guests are hugging and kissing and finally can relax on the comfortable armchairs and sofas and browse through old books. In the neighboring room some are secretly filling ballons. And meanwhile the moose are watching from above. Moose? Yes, moose.
Party in the Winter Salon
Once more we head back to the fireplace in the winter salon where the ceremony took place earlier that day. This room has changed massively in the meantime - because a wedding at Saareck Castle also means party. The room will be the dance floor for the rest of the evening. And as the dance floor opens, the newlyweds and their guests dance until their feet hurt. Everybody is in party mood - even the seniors -dancing the night away.
Wedding at Saareck Castle - Does it hit the Spot?
Absolutely! Saareck Castle is a dream location for a wedding. Don't be fooled by the wording “guest house”. Villeroy & Boch is not a nobody. The traces of the long company history can be seen in many places in the house - the walls are often decorated with antique porcelain from the production all periods of Villeroy & Boch making the rooms unique and emphasizing the noble ambience. I'm looking forward to the next wedding as a wedding photographer in Saarland at Saareck Castle.
