There is nothing more special than saying ‘I do’ with the sound of wind whispering through the trees and chirping of birds in the background. When you look around all you see is the people you love and the beautiful gift of nature. And the moment the sun breaks through the clouds and you feel the light warming up your skin, it feels like all the elements of the earth are in your favour.⠀⠀
This was one of those lovely days. The wedding took place at a cute little farm owned by the father of the bride. The farm was surrounded by tall trees and never ending fields.
The bride was gorgeous, she looked a bit like a fairy. When the groom saw her for the first time and the soundtrack of The Lord of the Rings was playing in the background, I could barely hold my tears.⠀
After the first look we went to a different part of the garden to take some photos with just the two of them. It was a perfect moment to take everything in and have some fun before the ceremony. We also went to a nearby forest to add some dreamy vibes to the photo session. I scouted this location in the week before the wedding. The moment I saw it I knew it was going to be perfect.
The ceremony was a very small gathering due to covid, but most of the couple’s close friends and family members were able to attend. Some of them even came from England and were willing to go into quarantine afterwards. And because the ceremony took place outside, the grandparents could be there too.⠀
It was an emotional day, filled with so much joy and gratitude. Seeing Dutch, Japanese, Indonesian and Argentinian cultures blending together made me so happy. From ikigai to pulling ribbons out of the cake.⠀
As the sun was setting we took a moment for group photos and we used the wonderful golden hour light for some more portraits. There was such a relaxed atmosphere amongst the guests and the small farm looked marvellous in those last few sun rays. Another gift of mother nature was when some guests spotted a rainbow in the distance.
The warm and cosy living room of the farm acted as dining room. The day ended with a campfire at a different part of the farm. One of the friends brought his guitar and they sang The Witcher song. Goosebumps all over.⠀
Fellow outdoor lovers, does your dream wedding look like this too?
