From enterprises and governments to freelancers and home users, everybody uses Nextcloud for countless purposes. We regularly like to share professional case studies with our customers, but this time we’ll talk about a creative, private use case at a, you heard it right, wedding!
Did you ever even think of using Nextcloud to exchange wedding or event photos at you or a friend’s wedding or event? Apparently, many Nextcloud fans have, and they did!
No ugly wedding pictures allowed!
A couple installed Nextcloud on a Raspberry Pi and gave guests access to Wifi so they could upload the photos that they took during the wedding. The intent was to get a ton of awesome wedding photos, while at the same time take advantage of the opportunity to disconnect everybody from the internet, stopping any bothering interruptions during the whole ceremony.
Rumor has it that they even stopped uncle from posting awkward, badly taken pictures on social media before they reviewed everything!
In control of their data even on their wedding day, yay!
You could do a lot more!
This is just one unique story of many in which our private users used Nextcloud. There are really endless apps and possibilities, however, in the case of our wedding story, you could even:
Use Nextcloud Calendar to send invitations via email (e-vites) and confirm your guest list
Use Nextcloud Forms to inquire about guest allergies and food preferences for the menu
Share photos taken by the professional photographer during the wedding
Organize a small wedding affair by using Nextcloud Deck
This is merely just to show the scope of what you can do, and we are aware of more cool use cases, so stay tuned!

As part of Schleswig-Holstein's state digitization strategy, the state chancellery has announced they will work with Nextcloud to develop AI for working with government documents. This comes just after we announced the first private AI assistant last weekend with Hub 6. The German state already uses Nextcloud and their AI strategy aligns with our work on ethical, local AI technologies.
Over the last year, AI has become a popular topic. Some is hype, some is substance. Some is good, some is bad. We want to give you the good, not the bad, and ignore the hype! AI has a ton of opportunity – but also risk. So we put you in control – off by […]
The serious security flaws in ownCloud (now owned by Kiteworks) do NOT affect Nextcloud. We have strict security processes in place, and do not ship test data from libraries that can cause security breaches.
