  • To create a lasting memory of this most special occasion, it is very important to find the right wedding photographer. Picking the right photographer and or videographer guarantees that there will be a record of the event that will last a lifetime. Some couples choose just a photographer and this is fine, but these days in this technologically advanced world, hiring a videographer too will not stretch the budget unduly. When choosing the person to document your day, ask the photographer to show you a complete wedding from the early preparation right through until the end rather than just taking a peek at the collection of the best pictures. Also ask yourself what you like particularly about photos and videos and what  are the most important elements for you. Do you like arty photos, or ones with humour and lots of colour and action? Do you want stylised, posed wedding photographs or more informal shots from behind the scenes? Or do you like both?
  • After the serious moments of the wedding ceremony, the happy couple and their guests will naturally want to relax and let their hair down.
  • Having fun is a serious business and the choice of entertainment is an important element of the day.
  • The wedding music, whether it be a dj or a live band, provides just the right ambience and mood to get the party started.
  • Transport before and after the wedding is another important element. Danubius Hotels can advise on the choice of wedding cars and provide recommendations. Some couples prefer a chauffer-driven white stretch limousine, while others may choose a classic car, such as an early 20th century Ford. As Budapest is such a historic city, a horse-drawn carriage clip-clopping across the cobblestones is a particularly photogenic way to leave the party and set off on honeymoon.

Danubius Hotels can suggest a range of services and weddings will go with a swing here in beautiful Budapest. At Danubius, the hotel’s event manager will provide the happy couple with the expert assistance required to turn dreams into a reality.
