This summer I had the opportunity to cover a lavish Arabic wedding in Split. Let me tell you, it was something else. No expense was spared on the decor, set-up, food and special attention was paid to the minor details. The bride and groom hailed from Jordan and they chose the manicured garden and grounds of Meštrović gallery.
Lying on the foothills of the Marjan mountain, Ivan Meštrović Gallery is an art museum that overlooks the Adriatic sea and also one of the most stunning venues you will come across in Split. Built between 1931 and 1939 to an original design by Meštrović himself, it was originally designed to fulfil three purposes: a family home, working studio and exhibit space. In 1952, Ivan Meštrović donated the property and 132 of his artworks and today it stands as an impressive gallery available for private events. Don’t take my word for it (I’m just the photographer haha) but I think the food and everything is arranged by a catering company who is separate to the venue.
In this blog post I wanted to do a decor/set-up piece and share the stunning details that brought this theme alive. I hope you like them.
