Outdoor Church Wedding – Czosnowski Palace

Aleksandra and Patryk decided to have their church wedding outdoors in a unique location - at the Czosnowski Palace. If the thought of "maybe a church wedding outdoors..." has crossed your mind too, then keep reading!

Outdoor Church Wedding: Is It Worth It?

It’s worth it! From a photographic and cinematic perspective, artificial light can’t replace natural light, which is simply the most flattering for our, your, skin. Unfortunately, many churches offer very challenging lighting conditions. On one hand, they are often dark, or on the contrary – there is no shortage of chaotic lighting points that create a range of shadows on your faces. From a few shadows from the nose to under-eye creases. Another issue is simply the color of the walls. Yellow, orange interiors – they give the skin a “heavy look”.

How to Organize an Outdoor Church Wedding?

For several years now in Poland, it’s possible to organize an outdoor church wedding in a location deemed “worthy,” with the consent of the local diocesan bishop. If such an idea has crossed your mind, it’s worth getting involved in it quite early. Waiting for approval can take even over a year. However, the range of possibilities is unlimited. You can say “yes” to each other by the shore of a Kashubian lake, on a mountain meadow with an incredible view of Śnieżka, or sentimentally – in your family garden.

Outdoor Church Wedding and Formalities

To obtain permission for an outdoor wedding ceremony, it’s necessary to submit an application. However, it’s not so simple because your application must be well-argued, and its acceptance remains a subjective decision of the clergy. Therefore, it’s worth considering whether your parish priest is open-minded and willing to depart from the conventional approach, or if they are more inclined to stick to tradition. If you’re unsure, it might be worth simply visiting the parish priest and discussing this possibility.

Czosnowski Palace - A Place Where You Can Have an Outdoor Church Wedding

How to make your life easier? There are several places in Poland that regularly organize outdoor church weddings, so the organizational aspect is much simplified in these cases. One such place in the Masovian Voivodeship is Czosnowski Palace, which, in addition to the option of the wedding ceremony itself, offers a beautiful glasshouse for the wedding reception and a huge surrounding area that will enchant even the biggest nature enthusiasts. The ceremony itself takes place in the garden at the back of the palace. In this case, a wooden gazebo serves as the altar, which you can beautifully decorate according to your own preferences.
