Zandvoort beach wedding
When we first met, Diana told me that their wedding wasn’t going to be big, fussy or extravagant. They wanted the photos to reflect the atmosphere of the day and the little moments that happen in between.
I absolutely loved hearing this, as I’m starting to develop a thing for moments instead of details. I believe that a wedding can be minimalist, and still produce amazing photos! So let me tell you about their small wedding:
Firstly, it was my debut as a photographer at a Jewish wedding! And I can tell you now that I loved every second of it! Apart from all the beautiful traditions and rituals throughout the day, I got the feeling that this gorgeous couple is loved so intensely by every member of their friends and family. And nobody was afraid to show it!
Secondly, Diana wore the MOST WONDERFUL short, ballerina-type wedding dress I have ever seen. I wanted to touch it all the time. And not the cool “ooh I love your dress” kind of touch, but the creepy kind where I slowly reached out my hand at exactly the same time she was turning around.
And thirdly: Whenever I think back on the day itself, I remember all the laughs and genuine warmth from every guest at the wedding. From the start of the ceremony until the reception. It just shows that your wedding doesn’t have to be big or over-the-top extravagant. As long as you have good food, and the people you love your wedding will be the best day of your life.
So here’s to Diana and Jeremy, keeping it real.
