Church Wedding in Prague
Wedding in Prague
Wedding in Prague, Czech Republic?
Prague, the capital of Czech Republic, city rich of history and culture, is every year the dream marriage destination
for hundreds and hundreds of couples from all around the world.
In Czech Republic, you can have either civil wedding (done mostly by local officials at the Municipal Office) or a church wedding
(done by a priest, minister or pastor, in a church or even at some other place).
The legal paperwork (and there is some legwork taking some time)
is the same for both, and must be done at the Municipal office under whose jurisdiction the venue for the ceremony falls.
Based on this condition, the church wedding is then legally binding, as if done by the civil authorities.
Instead of having a civil wedding first and a church blessing successively (as it works in many other countries),
you can have both together done by a priest.
In case, you are foreigners, not speaking Czech language, the ceremony can be held in English (or other language the priest knows),
or in Czech language with a translation.
There are different conditions in various churches regarding the wedding (e.g. in some, at least one of the parties must be member
of the particular church). In our church, we are ecumenically open and welcome people from all Christian traditions.
If you are thinking of getting married in Prague (or elsewhere in Czech Republic) and you wish and plan to have a church wedding
and/or get a blessing for your marriage, our priest, father Michal Šourek, can help you.
Father Michal has a rich experience; he has done a number of international wedding ceremonies, in our church in Prague-Chodov,
in other churches and venues in Prague (e.g. St. Martin in the Wall Church, St. Thomas Church, Klementinum, Vrtbovská Garden,
Botanic Garden, Chateau St. Havel),
as well as at other venues in Czech Republic (e.g. Průhonice, Hluboká nad Vltavou Castle, Zbiroh, Liblice).
Father Michal Šourek can do the wedding ceremony in Czech, English, German and Russian language. Do not hesitate to contact him
in case you have any questions.
