Kodarinov Mlin Wedding of Ines and Patrik

Dear Aleks & Irena, we looked our photos from Kodarinov mlin, once, twice… And yet we discover something new every time we look at them! We can really feel all the magic moments we have experienced and even those which were hidden to our eyes. Pure magic! Thank you very much from the bottom of our heart for this outstanding work at Kodarinov mlin!

The incredible feedback we received from the bride! Confirmation that we nailed it! Being on the same wavelength as the couple, we were free to express our vision something we are passionate about. This is the reason why we love our work so much!

We often hear that working in the same location over and over again can be hard, but for us that’s never been something that we struggle with. We have already done lots of wedding photography at Kodarinov Mlin in the past, where we created lots of beautiful wedding stories. The constant challenge is to create a different story each time, we force ourselves to find frames hidden to the bride and groom, to create frames which have never been done before, to find stories between guests and create complete wedding stories at the same time.

We love couples which give us the freedom to do it our way and create special stories with unforgettable images. And this was the case at this wedding at Kodarinov Mlin as you can see below.. I’m sure you’ll find it pretty ace..!

Why choose Dragonja Valley, Slovenia for a destination wedding in Europe?

The Dragonja Valley is a magnificent stretch of unspoilt beauty in Slovenia. A heavenly expanse filled with magical waterfalls and pools, glittering forests, fragrant wild flowers, natural springs, green hills and staggering scenery. With the River Dragonja running through the valley and on to the Adriatic Sea, this rural idyll is the perfect place to hike and spend some quality time in the outdoors.

With Kodarinov mlin one of the only two mills left in what was once an area densely populated with many mills, your time will be wonderfully uninterrupted as there are only a few farms present in the area.

This beautiful landscape delivers breathtaking views across the Julian Alps, Trieste, Koper and on to Croatia beyond. Close to Portoroz, Slovenia’s gorgeous beach resort and the Secovlje Salt Fields, there is plenty in the area to see and do.

A place of contrasting landscapes, Portoroz is a brilliant beach location with beautiful beaches, elegant spas, wellness centres and plenty of opportunities for holiday fun. Secovlje Salt Fields on the other hand, is a natural wonder that has been supplying its renowned natural salt through the same traditional methods since the thirteenth century.

Spanning 1600 acres, the Secovlje Salina National Park is a protected area of natural salt production and home to an enormous range of plants and wildlife, including up to 270 species of birds.

Dragonja Valley is a wonderful spot for hiking or cycling and a sublime choice for a destination wedding in the great European outdoors.
