Nienke & Basel

Location & Date | Bloemendaal, 18 August 2016
Guests | 55 people Photographer | Josi Nihot, Memories-Made

A beautiful beach wedding day. That it was.
It took long for the sun to shine this bright in Holland, but then it did, on Thursday the 18th of August.
They looked stunning and happy, as did all the guests. Smiling and loving and they never stopped doing so.

 

HOW WE MET
We met in Basel's gym. He had just opened a health club with his brother and I decided to work-out there. There we saw each other for the first time. Basel: "From the very first moment I saw her, I knew she would be my wife."

"Marriage is something magical."

OUR ENGAGEMENT STORY
During Spring in 2015 we were on a holiday in Lebanon, the country with Basel's roots. For me the holiday was quite an experience in itself, but it became even more special when we were just with the two of us in between the fruit trees and Basel asked me to marry him.

MARRIAGE TO US MEANS
Marriage is something magical. It's a day to celebrate the love for each other with your loved ones around you. 

A MEMORABLE MOMENT OF THE DAY
The moment we saw each other for the very first time. When the children came to bring the rings. Our first kiss as husband and wife. Our dance. Actually, too many to mention..

"Your location is very important, so start with that search first."

ONE THING WE WISH WE KNEW BEFORE WE STARTED OUR WEDDING PLANS
That it's super fun to plan, but it takes a lot of time too. 

 IF I COULD GIVE OTHER BRIDES TO BE ONE PIECE OF ADVICE
1. Your location is very important, so start with that search first. Almost everything you have to arrange after it, is related to and depending of the location.   
2. Try to enjoy everything as much as possible. Of course you are nervous about everything falling into place, but with Lotte there, everything goes well!

"Lotte is sweet, friendly, never stressed out and super structured, this makes her the perfect wedding planner."

GETTING MARRIED WITH THE HELP OF LOTTE MEANS TO US
Lotte is amazing to work with. She helped us with finding a location and as a master of ceremony on the day itself. Lotte is sweet, friendly, never stressed out and super structured, this makes her the perfect wedding planner. At the wedding she was thé person of rest in the midts of the crowd. As a bride and groom you can have some stress, she managed to reassure us at times when we needed it!
