HOW WE MET
We played sports at the same club.

"To share, express and celebrate the intense love that we feel for one another with the sweetest people by our sides."

OUR ENGAGEMENT STORY
After 11 years of having a relationship, the wedding fairytale began with a sunset at Curacao. He went on his knee and the ring came out.
Soon we knew what our wedding had to look like, a weekend with our closest family and dearest friends, celebrating love somewhere in the sun at a crazy place! After a year of preparations our weekend was there, all wishes came true. We changed the South of France for Normandy, because Lotte had found this perfect place we felt in love with at first sight. This meant that the weather was a bit more unsure, but at the end, it only rain in between the program and the sun came out at every special moment.

MARRIAGE TO US MEANS
To share, express and celebrate the intense love that we feel for one another with the sweetest people by our sides.

"At this moment we could see everything from a distance. A special moment together where we were consciously reflecting on the crazy 24 hours that had passed."

A MEMORABLE MOMENT OF THE DAY
We can write an A4 full of memorable moments, because it was a cascade of special moments. But if we have to call one, it was an incredibly beautiful moment that arose spontaneously. In the middle of the night, we sneaked away from the party to our room and just stood on the balcony and saw the party going on from there. A moment of intense joy came to us, for everything that had happened that day with at our feet the party which was still going strong. At this moment we could see everything from a distance. A special moment together where we were consciously reflecting on the crazy 24 hours that had passed.

ONE THING WE WISH WE KNEW BEFORE WE STARTED OUR WEDDING PLANS
You will probably always pay more than that you budget in the beginning, so always build in some extra. BUT it was all more than worth it!

"Often you chose people that are close to you as a master of ceremony, but it's those very people that you want to have close to you and share with every special planned and unplanned moment."

IF I COULD GIVE OTHER BRIDES TO BE ONE PIECE OF ADVICE
Often you chose people that are close to you as a master of ceremony,but it's those very people that you want to have close to you and share with every special planned and unplanned moments. Lotte fulfilled this task on the weekend for us and we are so happy she did! All our family and friends were able to relax and enjoy every single moment. A true recommendation!

"Hire Lotte if you are looking for someone who does her job with a big smile, who has everything under control without you noticing she's even there."

GETTING MARRIED WITH THE HELP OF LOTTE MEANS TO US
Lotte has been a great contribution to our weekend, to make it as relaxed as it was. She was incredibly flexible, fully understood our taste and it was not hard to let it all loose during the weekend itself. Lotte ensured that we, and our masters of ceremony, were able to enjoy every single moment without worrying. If you want a warm beautiful person as a wedding planner, engage Lotte in your wedding, we can recommend it to everyone. She's looking for great ideas, which can mostly be found in the fact that less is often so much more. Hire her if you are looking for someone who does her job with a big smile, who has everything under control without you noticing she's even there. She will let you experience your wedding as much as possible, where nothing it too much asked!
