Growing old together on a magical island.
All they have ever wished for.
After a secret wedding and an amazing wedding/going-away party, their big immigration plan was a fact.
And so they left as beautiful, happy and always laughing newly-weds. 

 

HOW WE MET
Very ‘romantic’ in the smoking area at Bitterzoet in Amsterdam. At the 9th of September 2011 to be precise.

"Growing old together on a magical island."

OUR ENGAGEMENT STORY
We were never thinking about the concept of marriage. We found it just too much of a hassle. We dreamed especially of emigrating to Bali. Dreaming became planning and from planning it became a bloody serious project. Because of Jacob’s job, we travelled a lot together, so we already knew that besides lovers, we were very good travel buddies too.  Besides a shared passion for music, we also share a passion for travelling. Before we could actually start with this big project, we had to travel together to Bali. Then when we were there, we were very sure about it, growing old together on a magical island.

We always took every chance we had to escape Amsterdam. So, for my birthday I got a seven-day city trip to Istanbul as a present. Then, on November the 3rd 2015 (my birthday) we were sailing on the Bosphorus river and Jacob asked me to marry him! We kept it a secret for months, because we had to get used to the idea ourselves first. It felt very good and so we could work in all silence, without interference of family and friends, on our biggest project(s); marry each other and an emigration to Bali.

MARRIAGE TO US MEANS
Together celebrate life and love.
Together we can and dare the world.
Together grow as a person.
In prosperity and adversity.

A MEMORABLE MOMENT OF THE DAY
To say I DO and signing the marriage lines. Wow what a beautiful and touching feeling.
Actually, both our wedding day and our party were completely FAN TAS TIC!

"Lotte is made for this profession. We are very happy and grateful that we met Lotte as a person and as a craftswoman."

IF I COULD GIVE OTHER BRIDES TO BE ONE PIECE OF ADVICE
Start early with planning AND work together with a wedding planner.

GETTING MARRIED WITH THE HELP OF LOTTE MEANS TO US
EVERYTHING! Especially lots of rest.
She took away our doubts. Has fantastic ideas. Thinks with us and finally worked out all our wishes as we discussed, in detail.
She was a very important factor before and during our wedding. Lotte is made fort his profession. We are very happy and grateful that we met Lotte as a person and as a craftswoman.
