Siemkje & Daniel

Location & Date | Baambrugge, 25 November 2017

Only a short car drive away from the big city, we celebrated this beautiful traditional Autumn wedding. Held in a yellow and blue monumental gem of a villa surrounded by the serenity of the country side.

 

HOW WE MET
We met at a garden party of a political party in Amsterdam. Daniel was a city counsilor and Siemkje just joined as a new member.

“Daniel's parents got engaged in Geneva as well, in the 1950s. We used their engagement cards as an example.”

OUR ENGAGEMENT STORY
Daniel had taken Siemkje on a surprise weekend to Geneva and that’s where he proposed. We also sent engagement cards. Daniel's parents got engaged in Geneva as well, in the 1950s. We used their engagement cards as an example.

“We are both traditional, and marriage just gives something extra.”

MARRIAGE TO US MEANS
We knew each other for five years before we got married, and we had lived together for several years, so not much has changed in that way. However, we are both traditional, and marriage just gives something extra.

A MEMORABLE MOMENT OF THE DAY
The ‘I do’s’, of course. Furthermore, the welcoming of the guests in evening wear for dinner. Our location Valkenheining was very atmospheric and romantic in the evening.

ONE THING WE WISH WE KNEW BEFORE WE STARTED OUR WEDDING PLANS
Nothing really.

“Lotte arranged everything with care, style and dedication.”

IF I COULD GIVE OTHER BRIDES TO BE ONE PIECE OF ADVICE
Enjoy the preparation and of course the day itself!

GETTING MARRIED WITH THE HELP OF LOTTE MEANS TO US
Lotte arranged everything with care, style and dedication. We therefore didn’t need any master of ceremonies and all our guests were able to fully enjoy the day.
