Buitenplaats Sparrendaal Wedding Photographer - Outdoor Wedding Ceremony

When Jana first approached me about their upcoming wedding, it was clear that this would be a special occasion and that I wanted to be a part of it. Her excitement shone through in her emails, and that energy was even more palpable when we met in person. I also immediately clicked with Niek. It didn’t take them a second to decide that they wanted me as their wedding photographer. And honestly, how could a photographer not be thrilled by such infectious joy?

In their search for what they wanted for their wedding, the couple came across terms like ‘fine art wedding photography’ and ‘fine art wedding styling and design’. The concepts of timeless elegance, refinement, and chic immediately resonated with them. They wanted an intimate group of friends and family around them, but at the same time, they didn’t want to compromise on the grandeur that would make the day complete. Fortunately, my style of wedding photography seamlessly matched their vision, and their aesthetic perfectly aligned with mine.

Buitenplaats Sparrendaal became their chosen venue, a gem of a wedding location near Utrecht. This historic estate offers a classic ambiance with a beautiful garden and a stunning interior. It’s a unique wedding venue, centrally located in the Netherlands and suitable for intimate gatherings of up to about 150 people. Exactly what Jana and Niek were looking for their select group of about 60 guests. The diverse and atmospheric spaces of Buitenplaats Sparrendaal made it perfect for their entire day: from getting ready to the ceremony in the garden, the dinner, and of course, the party.

Jana and Niek’s love for aesthetics and attention to detail were evident in every aspect of their wedding. From the subtle color combinations to the carefully chosen accessories, everything was thoughtful and refined. Their inspiration led them to a ‘Fine Art Wedding’ theme, which encompassed not only the photography but also every aspect of their big day. Soft shades like powder pink, white, and peach added a timeless elegance to the atmosphere, while the dress code ‘Garden Chic with Hat’ brought a touch of playfulness and charm.

Jana found her dream dress from Wona Concept at Covers Couture in Utrecht, where she shared the moment with her sister, her mother, and even her father, which made it an extra special moment. The accessories, borrowed from her mother, added a personal touch to her ensemble. Niek and his parents, along with Jana’s mother, found his perfect suit in Germany, resulting in a cozy weekend full of family ties since Jana’s family is from Germany.

For Jana and Niek, their wedding was about the whole picture. They wanted a beautiful venue, a festive atmosphere, and attention to detail in every aspect of their day. Every element, from the invitations to the flower decorations and from the wedding dress to the cake, was chosen with love and care. The result was an unforgettable day, filled with pride, happiness, and enthusiasm. Wedding photography was a very important aspect for them. It was an honor to be their wedding photographer at Buitenplaats Sparrendaal to capture their beautiful day.

And like every beautiful story, their wedding had some highlights that will forever be etched in their memories. For Niek, it was the moment he saw Jana in her wedding dress for the first time and then watched her walk down the aisle, an unforgettable moment. For Jana, it was the exchange of rings and reading their vows that stayed with her the most. But even the small, unexpected moments, like losing a shoe during the first dance, provided precious and especially hilarious memories that they cherish.

The day went smoothly, every moment was enchanting, and everything fell into place as they had hoped, and even better. Their marriage began with a beautiful ceremony in the garden of the mansion, followed by an intimate dinner and a lively party with live jazz music. It was a day that exceeded their wildest expectations, filled with love, laughter, and unforgettable memories.

Looking back on Jana and Niek’s wedding, all I can do is smile. It was an honor to capture their special day, surrounded by the warmth of their love and the magic of their celebration. And as a wedding photographer, there is nothing more valuable than capturing such precious moments, especially if it can be done at a beautiful wedding venue like Buitenplaats Amerongen, close to my own doorstep!
