Every wedding is unique, every wedding is so different and this one was freaking awesome…
PS: there’s a new kid in town, Lieke Biesemans from Stories by Mabel, she can style your wedding but first and foremost she can help you to tell an amazing story.
I shall never forget their faces…
I shall never forget Nele’s face when she discovered the present Steven had carefully put together as a surprise for his wife to be. On the morning of her wedding, she opened a little mint green box and saw it was filled with love, a letter, jewellery and a ticket for a live show by Pharrell Williams. For “Happy” was the song that suited them perfectly. The perfect gift, on a perfect day.
I shall never forget Steven’s face when he arrived at the villa, where Nele got dressed in the morning. Slightly nervous. A face filled with anticipation. Carrying the wedding bouquet he fetched himself in the morning – seated on a vintage Vespa. A perfect drive, on a perfect day.
I shall never forget the faces of their family and friends, when Nele came down the stairs. They watched beauty descend. And saw Steven’s reaction to that. One could do nothing else but to grab for one’s handkerchief. A perfect “first-see”, on a perfect day.
I shall never forget Steven and Nele’s faces when they sat together under that big old tree. As their ceremonial speaker, I took them on a journey. And while travelling, we filled vintage suitcases with stories, with drawings by children’s hands and with the vows they exchanged. At the end of the ceremony, the song “Happy” by Pharrell Williams made all cheer. A perfect wedding ceremony, on a perfect day.
I shall never forget the sun that lit up their day, strengthening the pastel colours in the best way possible. Warming up their beautiful lunch table. Perfect styling, on a perfect day.
I shall never forget their faces.
Just like the pictures.
