''Last Saturday, my friend Branka Čubelić and her team at DREAMTIME EVENTS CROATIA organized a stunning Croatian/ Swiss wedding in the countryside near Knin. I was delighted to be of some small assistance on the day. Many guests commented that it was one of the most beautiful weddings they had ever attended.... traditional, yet with a modern touch...''
