Our dream came true, we photographed our first wedding in Belgium!
During the last few years, Erika and I have photographed many Belgian couples in our country. Most of them had chosen Mallorca for their wedding.
So when Charlène and Diede contacted us to ask us to photograph their wedding in Belgium, we were very happy.
I must admit that when we received the first email from Diede telling us that he and Charlène were getting married at Kasteel Van Leeuwergem in the middle of the summer it was one of the best news we had received in a long time.
Epic First Look close to Kasteel Van Leeuwergem
Early in the morning we started photographing Charlène and Diede’s Getting Ready. Erika was photographing Diede and his family and I was photographing Charlene. They wanted to see each other for the first time before the ceremony, in private. Just them. Looking at each other for a few seconds. It was definitely an epic moment. All in silence, just them, the Kasteel Van Leeuwergem in the background, the gardens, the light, everything! It was wonderful to photograph such pictures.
Without a doubt, photography was very important to them. From the very beginning, Diede told us that he was a lover of photography, a great enthusiast. They considered many of our wedding photographs to be more than just photography. They were art.
We love working with couples like that, the responsibility is always the same but on that day it was even greater.
After the first look it was a luxury to enjoy almost an hour taking a few portraits in a very natural way near the Kasteel Van Leeuwergem .
We love things to flow naturally and we love to capture moments as they happen. Some of these photos you are looking at are some of our favourite moments.
We are in love with them
We are immensely grateful to have had the opportunity to photograph this great couple. It was an adventure to the heart of Europe that we will never forget. Who knows if we will ever photograph another wedding in Belgium again, haha, it’s possible!
Erika created this amazing Slideshow for their wedding, PLEASE, don’t miss it!
