Marcella & Bram

Location & Date | Grubbervorst 6, 7 & 8 September 2013
Guests | 100 people 

A lovely summer garden wedding at the family's country estate. Dancing until dawn, sleeping at a festival camp site and waving the newlyweds farewell in a helicopter.

 

HOW WE MET
We met during a night out. Not exactly the moment and place at which you expect to find the love of your life. But that is what happened, although it took us more than half a year and a special love poem to admit that we really, really liked each other. 

OUR ENGAGEMENT STORY
Taking things slow somehow became our trademark: it took us almost 10 years to get engaged. Bram proposed at our own special place in Germany, with just the two of us. It was wintertime, cold, and after a walk through the deep snow, while trying to warm up near the fire, Bram proposed.

MARRIAGE TO US MEANS
Getting married to us means to say out loud what we mean to each other and share and celebrate this very special moment together with the people that are close to us.

A MEMORABLE MOMENT OF THE DAY
Of course there were many memorable moments: seeing each other for the first time, the sweet and heartfelt words we spoke to each other, the wonderful speeches of family and best friends. Another great moment was the performance of Mambo Kurt: party time! 

ONE THING WE WISH WE KNEW BEFORE WE STARTED OUR WEDDING PLANS
We should have married sooner. Marriage is more special than we had ever imagined!

IF I COULD GIVE OTHER BRIDES TO BE ONE PIECE OF ADVICE
Relax and fully enjoy the wedding, it is your day! Just try to absorb it all as much as you can. Also, multiply the envisioned budget by a factor of 1.5, than you somewhat get closer to a realistic budget.

"She made our day(s)."

GETTING MARRIED WITH THE HELP OF LOTTE MEANS TO US
We love Lotte. She's fantastic. She made our day(s). Knowing she was in control made it possible, in fact easy, for us to let go and enjoy to the fullest (and we are very in-control people).
