When An-Sofie and Andres, a Belgian-Venezuelan couple, contacted me, they wanted me to style their international wedding. They dreamed of an original wedding without being totally exhausted on their wedding day. This certainly would have been the case if they would have done the whole styling of the venue themselves. Shortly after the first meeting they asked me to take care of the remaining part of the planning as well as the styling of their international wedding.
The couple had already booked the venue and caterer before contacting me. It would be a wonderful renovated barn at the Belgian-Dutch boarder, close to the picturesque village called Sint-Anna-Ter-Mude. With this venue and the preference of the couple for one colour in particular We created a relaxed, original and international barn wedding for them. Their motto was “nothing is a must, everything is possible”. Their wedding certainly didn’t have to be traditional.
Their guests came from more than ten countries and a lot of them planned to stay longer to enjoy the festivities at the fullest. We booked a bus to drive everyone from the different hotels to the church and the venue. At night there was a shuttle driving from the venue to the many B&B’s to make sure that everyone would arrive safely in their bed.
For the live music at wedding ceremony we contacted Ellis Grace Wilson. This made the ceremony a lot more personal. Her heavenly voice enchanted the whole church and all the guests. Music and entertainment were the thread throughout the whole wedding. During the reception the guests enjoyed the entertaining music of jazz band namely The Almost Swinging Jazzband. While the wedding dinner was going on the many friends surprised the bride and groom with a small show and some emotional video messages of friends from all over the world. After the cutting of the cake everyone was ready to swing and party all night long to Venezuelan music.
Many won’t easily forget this sunny day just as the pictures show.
