I always picture my own wedding at a camping site. No muss, no fuss, just the people who love us most. That and some good bonfires, alcoholic beverages and hopefully one of my friends playing guitar. Disclaimer: I am NOT that cool that I have friends who play the guitar. Instead I’m hoping some of them learn to play before my wedding. Thanks friends. Keeping this in mind, you can imagine my pure and utter joy when fellow photog Hanke Arkenbout and I went to Campingsite De Lievelinge for a FESTIVAL CAMPING WEDDING! Uh yes, this is my dream and yes I may have freaked out about every single thing happening that day. Everything was so amaze and I just wanted to die.
See, this was no ordinary festival camping wedding. No, this was a surprise wedding. But instead the bride and groom had no idea that they were getting married! They thought they were going to have a relaxing weekend with friends. Lol, friends were like “computer says no”. Read the less horrible explanation HERE.
They got by with a little help from their friends
Anyways, as the day progressed, I starting understanding why this couple got such a stunning wedding from their friends. They are super gorgeous, attentive, loving and humble and all I wanted to do was hug them. I’m not a hugger. Above all, they kept asking me if I was ok and if I needed anything. I’ve known them for all of 2 seconds, yet I still think “naw” when I look at these photos.
This was no doubt one of the most memorable experiences I’ve had and I feel so lucky to have been part of it! Fuck yeah.
