Today I get to tell you the beautiful Love Story of Cornelis and Maren, who were married on the 8th of September 2017 during two wedding ceremonies in both Schloss Raesfeld, Germany and Johanneskirche in Borken-Gemen, Germany. Their love has conquered borders, language- and cultural differences and even though they grew up very differently (Cornelis in The Netherlands and Maren in Germany), together, they make the strongest and most beautiful team imaginable!
You are engaged to the one you love... now what?
Here's a 5 Step Plan of what you need to do next:
Step 1 - Do a happy dance
Don't just do a happy dance in your living room! Do it everywhere! This is HUGE news! Call ALL the important people in your life and tell them so they can do a happy dance too!
On the 1st of September 2016 Rob & Hilde were married at the historic ‘Jachtslot de Mokerheide’ in Molenhoek, The Netherlands. It’s a beautiful old ‘hunting lodge’ and they were surrounded by their family and friends during an intimate wedding with what I can only describe as PERFECT weather!
I met Rob & Hilde during a Wedding Fayre at the start of this year and I was chuffed to learn that Hilde…. Was born in South Africa :)
After all the time spent planning your perfect day, your wedding day goes by too fast!

Are you planning your wedding and considering a 'First Look'?
Or... are you reading this and wondering what a First Look is?
A First Look is when the Bride and Groomo choose to see each other BEFORE the wedding. Before their guests arrive and all the excitement of the day begins...
Traditionally, the Groom will see his Bride for the first time when she walks down the isle, but there are reasons why a couple my choose to break the tradition and see each other before the wedding, and here is to name but a few:
This is a modern debate in the digital era... and is NOT about the Wedding Photographer and Videographer trying to photograph and film past smartphones and tablets... this is about the couple getting married.
I believe that every person has a right to document the special moments in their life. Regardless if it is your event, or one that you have been invited to. But... lately I have seen so many incidents of inconsideration... that I felt I had to say something.
