[EN] This wedding reportage was one I had been looking forward to for months. Top location? Yes, Ter Rijst Castle in Pepingen surely was, but that wasn’t the reason: the bride, Ellen, has been a good friend of mine for years, and I was truly honored when she asked me to be the photographer at her wedding!
After makeup artist Ille worked her magic, Ellen made her graceful entrance down the grand staircase, where she was met by her prince charming, Brecht, and their closest family and loved ones. We wandered into the park for a delightful photo shoot, and just see for yourself how they both radiated!
Ellen and Brecht exchanged their vows in the park, in front of the old farmhouse surrounded by lush natural beauty and serene ponds that provided an excellent backdrop for their ceremony.
Following the ceremony, guests gathered for a reception and cozy BBQ meal, filled with hilarious speeches and beautiful testimonies.
However, the most surprising moment of the evening came after an intimate first dance: the guests had prepared an incredible flash mob, much to the delight of Ellen & Brecht! This set the tone for the rest of the lively dance party, including a dance battle/striptease. :)
Feel free to enjoy this super fun wedding day through the highlights below!
