Midsummer intimate wedding at Brown Beach House Hotel

It was a pretty hot summer day at the beginning of July. Sahar and Anoush, an Afghan-Dutch couple gathered their family and friends for their romantic intimate wedding in Croatia. They fell in love with Trogir and quickly decided their wedding will take place there. The ceremony took place on the beach dock, right next to the Adriatic sea, followed by a reception and party near the captivating hotel pool (can you guess what happened at the end of the evening?). 

This was one of the most laid-back intimate weddings and we felt amazing since everyone was kind, and happy and the whole day was full of good vibes. We really felt like part of the wedding party. Even the hotel manager danced with the couple later that evening. Read further and see how it looked from the perspective of the bride.

In contrast to most traditional weddings, we wanted to have a small wedding. We wanted to celebrate our love with only the closest people, our family and best friends.

Why is Brown Beach House Hotel a perfect venue for an intimate wedding in Trogir

Brown Beach House is a designed hotel located in the footsteps of the core of the medieval Trogir city. The hotel features beautiful rooms and carefully furnished interiors. You can sit in the lobby and read magazines, and books or play the piano if you like.

Probably the most famous part of the hotel is its terrace with a huge, unique pool. During the day the pool is a great place to relax, but for couples wanting to organize a wedding there, it is possible to rent the pool area and terrace for private parties. You can rent the whole hotel or just a few rooms and you can privatize the pool terrace only, without needing to book the whole hotel just for yourself. One of the highlights are white balloons that are flying freely over the pool during wedding receptions and parties and they give a unique, relaxed vibe to the whole event.

The hotel has a private beach deck (both covered and open) where it is possible to organize a ceremony for intimate weddings.

 The panoramic views from the hotel terrace are amazing and if you choose Brown Beach House as your wedding venue, you will for sure enjoy beautiful sky colors during sunset times.

We couldn't be happier that we found Love and Ventures for our elopement photos in Croatia!! Andrea and Mario had great communication throughout the entire time. Any issues that came up, they were very quick to help fix or ease any of my worries. They helped with finding everything we needed for our wedding and the most important... where we wanted to have our ceremony. It was the most amazing location and exceeded what we had even imagined we wanted. They captured everything sooo so beautifully. We are incredibly happy with how the photos and video came out. They are the best team and genuinely so nice and sweet! HIGHLY recommend <3<3<3

How to organise an intimate wedding at Brown Beach House in Trogir

Depending on the number of guests at your wedding, you may want to hire a wedding planner to help you out, or you can organize everything by yourself. The best time to organize the wedding at Brown Beach House is from mid-May until mid-September so you have the best weather and the city is vibrant. Also, this means you will have many things to do and explore in Trogir because you will want to stay there for a couple of days for sure.

The hotel is located close to Split city so you won’t be short of vendor options and the helpful staff from the hotel is always there for you.

But we will stop here and give space to someone who had her intimate wedding at Brown Beach House Hotel. It is always better to get information the first hand, right? So here is what Sahar says about her wedding: 

My husband travels a lot. He has seen many places and has been 4 times to Croatia. From all the places he has seen and been to, he loved Croatia. He loved the weather, the food, the people, and the beautiful places in Croatia. It was the combination of these things, he said. When we decided to plan to do a destination wedding, it turned out to be Croatia without any doubt. 

We went to Split for a weekend, spontaneously. Once we arrived in Split, we contacted some wedding planners who helped us with finding locations in Split. We booked an appointment right away and went to see the locations. The first location was the Brown Beach House and we immediately fell in love. Without any doubt, we decided to have our wedding in Brown Beach House. 

In contrast to most traditional weddings, we wanted to have a small wedding. We wanted to celebrate our love with only the closest people, our family, and best friends. My husband’s family members are living in different European countries, he also wanted to bring them together to have a small vacation together. He felt like this was the perfect moment to do something like that. And it was! Everyone loved it. We had the most perfect wedding we could wish for. Obviously, nothing went perfectly and exactly how we planned it to be. But because of these imperfections, it was perfect for us. 

We had a lot of fun, we danced the whole night. The amazing manager Neno and his team from the Brown Beach House were very helpful. They were very patient and thoughtful with us until the big day. Even though we didn’t hire a wedding planner, I would say it is less stressful if you hire one. Especially if you don’t have any contacts in the destination location. The preparation was hard but worth it to do it ourselves. Another thing that helped us during the wedding day was having amazing photographers who just knew when to capture the perfect moment. We didn’t have to worry about that 🙂
