Two-Day Wedding Festivities at Schloss Prielau, Austria

“I showed the location to my husband and he immediately fell in love and we decided before our engagement that we will marry in this location.”

Bride and Groom: Andrea and Roger Illing

Wedding Date: August 25th and August 26th 2017

Wedding location: Schloss Prielau, Austria | Photographer: Amir Kaljikovic


We met… at OpenText, both of our previous employer.


Our wedding theme/colours… we decided on a really nice wedding invitation with a man who is picking the stars from the ceiling.

My dress…

Friday: dress from a small Boutique in Munich.

Saturday: was a traditional white “Dirndl” from Alpenmädel in Munich.

My hair and makeup… Hair: Angelika from Spitzen-Schnitt at Bruck/Glocknerstrasse, the Makeup artist from Salzburg: Tanja Turbanisch.

His suit…

Friday: Zegna.

Saturday: Gössl.

What our bridal party wore… 8 weeks before the wedding we went to Zell am See and had such a nice day and evening at the Sonnalm.

Our ceremony… was just perfect, we had the civil wedding and our free wedding in the garden of Schloss Prielau.

We chose our photographer because… he was presenting himself on his website in a very authentic and clear way, he perfectly integrated into the wedding, the best photographer I have ever seen and such a sympathetic man.

We chose our wedding coordinator because… we knew before that Anette will do her best to organise the perfect wedding.

We chose our venue because… my hometown is Zell am See and Schloss Prielau was for me the nicest location to marry, I showed the location to my husband and he immediately fell in love and we decided before our engagement that we will marry in this location.

Our menu… was absolutely delicious, many of our guests told us afterwards that it was the best wedding dinner they ever had, Mr Mayer is one of the best cooks in the region.

Our honeymoon… we spent our honeymoon in Cilento Italy in such a nice hotel with only 4 rooms.

My favourite part of the wedding day… there was no favourite part, there were so many favourite parts such as preparing with my girls in the spa area, the moment when I saw my husband the first time on the wedding day, all our friends sitting in the garden and waiting for me.

My piece of advice for other brides… enjoy every single moment.
