A wedding is a special event in life and the village of Štanjel can provide a truly special venue for it.

Yet Štanjel has much more to offer. For a wedding ceremony, either civil or church, you can choose almost any location. A special ceremonial space is available for a wedding dinner, topped off by an exquisite culinary offer. Your wedding will be taken care of down to the tiniest detail.
A civil wedding ceremony can be organised in the Lojze Spacal Gallery, which is also an official marriage registry office. But you can also choose from among the many open-air nooks, with the medieval village or Ferrari Garden providing a dramatic backdrop to the ceremony, completed with beautiful views of the Karst landscape.

The venue might be the famous Church of St Daniel which is perhaps, due to its peculiar bell tower, the most recognisable symbol of Štanjel. The Gothic church, built in mid-15th century and then reconstructed in the Baroque period when the famous stone altars were added, provides the perfect setting for a wedding ceremony. The exterior of the church and the famous stairway are among the most beautiful backdrops for wedding photos.
