After an unforgettable sunset proposal on an idyllic beach in Aruba, Shera and Kees began planning their dream wedding with a clear vision in mind. They cherished the desire for a wedding that was classic, elegant, and stylish – a style they found described as a “fine art wedding” online. In their search for vendors who could bring this vision to life, they quickly turned to Bianca from Perplexz Wedding Design, who helped them assemble a team of professionals familiar with the concept of a fine art wedding. As a fine art wedding photographer, it was a true pleasure for me to collaborate with such a talented team of wedding experts.
Choosing the perfect venue was the first crucial step in bringing their fine art wedding to life. Their choice fell on Buitenplaats Amerongen, a stunning historical location in the heart of the Netherlands. This venue not only offered a captivating ambiance but was also easily accessible for friends and family, making it the ideal setting for their big day. With Bianca’s expert assistance, the venue was transformed into a charming and romantic environment that perfectly matched their vision.
The ceremony was adorned with beautiful, classic French chairs and a breathtaking floral arch created by Marthe and her team from Bloom Your Life. The enchanting setting, with the majestic castle in the background, created an unforgettable atmosphere. The emotional accompaniment with live music from pianist and singer Lars Zebregs made the ceremony even more special. Kees’ emotion upon seeing the radiant Shera was beautiful to witness. The ceremony was filled with tears and laughter as stories were shared, culminating in a grand finale with flying rose petals.
After cutting the stunning cake from Sugarlips Cakes, it was time for the romantic photoshoot of the newlyweds. As a fine art photographer, I always recommend allocating sufficient time for this session, allowing the couple to relax and enjoy each other’s company fully. Shera and Kees took their time for the photoshoot, resulting in stunning pictures, while their guests enjoyed drinks and the lovely weather.
The dinner was truly enchanting, thanks to the captivating setting created by Bianca and Marthe. With an abundance of beautiful flowers, silk drapes framing the open tent, elegant decorations, and refined furniture, it was a feast for the senses that perfectly complemented the delicious cuisine from the catering at Buitenplaats Amerongen.
As the golden hour approached, Shera and Kees could relax and enjoy the last rays of sunshine during a brief photoshoot. As a fine art photographer in the Netherlands, it was an honor to capture this enchanting wedding. I love capturing beautiful stories, happy moments, and successful celebrations, and this wedding was a perfect example of that. I hope that this wedding inspires you to look beyond the standard styling of a venue and create your dream wedding.
Capturing this special day at Buitenplaats Amerongen was an unforgettable experience for me as a fine art wedding photographer. The beautiful surroundings offered endless opportunities for breathtaking photos, with the love and emotion of Shera and Kees taking center stage. From the intimate moments during the ceremony to the relaxed photoshoot at sunset, every second of this day was magical.
It was a privilege to witness the love between Shera and Kees and capture it in timeless images that they will cherish forever. As a fine art wedding photographer, it is my passion to capture the unique beauty of each wedding in my photos, and this wedding was no exception. I hope that my work reflects the beauty and elegance of this special day and keeps the memories alive for Shera, Kees, and their loved ones.
Finally, I want to thank Shera and Kees for their trust in me as their photographer and for allowing me to be part of their love story. It was an honor to capture your day, and I wish you nothing but happiness and prosperity in your life together.
