A wedding ceremony at the St.Ignatius Church in Dubrovnik

A wedding ceremony at the St.Ignatius Church in Dubrovnik

Today, we are going to look at another beautiful church in Dubrovnik: the St. Ignatius church.
Last week, for those that missed it, we discussed several details of the Dominican church.
The St. Ignatius church is a Jesuit church, built between 1667 and 1725 by architect Ignazzio Pozzo, and like most Jesuit churches of the period was modelled on the Gesù in Rome, the mother church of the Jesuits.
The St. Ignatius lies in the old city center of Dubrovnik, a small seaside city in the South of Croatia.
The church lies a few meters off the main street the Stradun which makes is less crowded and certainly more peaceful. The couple below is walking down the baroque steps which were modelled on the Spanish steps in Rome.

Since the old town is car free, most brides choose to walk to the church, but it is also possible to ask a special permittion and have a car bring you as close as possible to the church.

Lets have a look at a few images of Daniel and Therese who got married in Dubrovnik on a warm September afternoon. In one of the images you will see a lady who gets a rosemary branch pinned on, it is a local Croatian tradition to have all guests receive a Rosemary branch.

 

 

One of the exciting things to marry in the old town of Dubrovnik is the location. The walk to the church is beautiful, but so is the walk to the reception venue after the wedding mass.

This couple here chose to have a local trio of klapa singers await for them as they came out of the church and together with their friends and family, they walked to the dinner venue.

All the way, the klapa singers were entertaining not only their guests but also everybody else.
Having a klapa at your wedding is a typical Croatian tradition. Sometimes they accompany the bride from her home (hotel) to the church.

The father of the bride, here with the little boy on his arm, had been fighting his tears already when he accompanied his daughter to the church.
At this moment though, the tears had won the fight.

Guests gathering after the ceremony, just moments before the group pictures are going to be taken.

No explanation needed, right? 🙂

Below some details of the detailled paintings in the church.
