About us

We love this little part of Europe, and know that with our local guidance and the right occasions, you will feel the same. With this thought in mind, we created our Luxury Bride family, a group of passionate individuals, sharing a common vision – the desire to let people experience Slovenia and its neighboring countries in a unique way, through romantic pre-wedding photography.

Our team consists of highly skilled and enthusiastic individuals, each a professional in their own field. We take care of every little detail, making sure that your pre-wedding photo session is an experience of a lifetime. Our expert make-up artists, hair stylists, florists and jewellers will pamper you to the extreme, and make you feel gorgeous on this special day. But that is not all! You will also have the opportunity to choose from a wide selection of top quality wedding gowns that can be custom tailored to fit you perfectly. Choose the gown of your dreams, and for that final touch you will have the chance to match it with some beautiful sparkly jewellery.
