Marit & Thijs Outdoor Summer Wedding in het Heerenhuys

It all started from their first anniversary. Marit gave Thijs this customized wooden postcard as a present, with words in Dutch “today is my dearest day”. Later that day, Thijs gave her the jewelry set and asked her to marry him. Instead of a traditional engagement ring, he opted for a set of lovely pearl ring, necklace and bracelet and popped the question. Both of them planned it on their own and Marit certainly didn’t expect such a big surprise ahead of her. Talk about “the dearest day”!

This stylish couple incorporated lots of personal elements in their wedding design, making sure it’s a celebration closest to their heart. For example those doves on the wedding cake were inspired by a wooden dove from Thijs to Marit, now hanging on the engagement necklace on her neck. The overall color palette of the day was wine, red, champaign and off-white. Guests dressed up in these fun colors; Muller’s Floral Art created gorgeous bouquet and flower alter with this color palette.

They had the ceremony outdoor in the garden of Het Heerenhuys, using Het Park and the river as a perfect backdrop. Both fathers of Thijs and Marit had important roles on the day. Father of Marit was the officiant for the civil ceremony and father of Thijs was the paster for the religious ceremony.

After that we went to the other side of the city for some more photos: THE exact location where Thijs asked Marit to marry him on their first anniversary. They danced at the exact spot where he kneeled before her and shared a quiet moment watching the beautiful sunset. It was so touching to see how love-filled they were being at this place again on their wedding day.

Intimate Paris Elopement | Lin & Shimin


Lin and Shimin are a sweet and loving couple coming from Hong Kong. The groom Shimin used to live in Paris when he was doing a study exchange program year back. Since then Paris remains his favourite place, and when he and Lin got engaged, they knew immediately Paris would be the perfect location. It means the world for him to bring her back and show her the city that forever has his heart. 
Although it wasn’t possible for them to officially wed in Paris, Shimin and Lin took the chance and arranged for an intimate elopement on top of Montmartre. In front of church Sacré-Cœur overlooking Paris, they held hands and shared vows for each other. The rest of the day we took photos around Paris at some of the most iconic places: Pont Alexandre III, river side of the Seine, Pont de Bir-Hakeim and finished at the the bride’s favourite café Shakespeare & Company. It was a day full of emotional and intimate celebration of their love.

Wabi-sabi perfect imperfection bridal editorial


Back in spring, just after coming back from Japan all inspired, I pulled together this editorial shoot in collaboration with redwhitebluepink and did something completely different. It is such an important project for me personally- from selecting the props, styling, to implementing a vision in my head into something tangible... I felt like everything came to make sense after this. I've become more aware of my own aesthetic, the subjects that truly speaks to me, and the artistic direction I'd love to follow.

A little introduction to the story:

"Wabi-sabi" is a Japanese term representing an aesthetics centered on the acceptance of transience and imperfection. A beauty that is imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete. 

From my travels and experiences in Japan, I was very much inspired by the understated and natural beauty in the Japanese design. Garden covered with moss, bamboo and cobblestones; walls faded with age; tea bowls in rustic and humble shapes. Things are all refined and thoughtfully arranged, but at the same time very organic and imperfect purposely. It is appreciation of natural forms and the organic, flawed beauty from the imperfection.
ith a color palette of black/white, dark gray, wooden and hint of pale pink, Susanne from
Redwhitebluepink reated 2 ikebana arrangements and table settings that celebrate motion and atural forms of the materials. Bridie from The Little North Sea Studi designed amazing stationery combing abstract painted marks, scripts that almost look like Japanese characters and some clean texts. 
e had two looks using a veil nd a headpiece rom SIBO Designs nd gowns from Unielle Couture. The fine lace and handmade crystal beads compliments other imperfect elements perfectly.
