There’s many things I love about weddings, but what touches me the most is to see people in love, and people having fun, because, that’s what it should be about, right? Essie and Frank had a simple beach wedding, but I love how much fun they seem to have had together. The wedding took place in the Netherlands, so that it’s not the typical turquoise water beach wedding; we can see there’s actually a lot of wind, which just gives a very special atmosphere! +1 for the 2 red balloons representing Essie’s missing sister and father!

The wedding took place May 31th, 2013 in Texel, The Netherlands; the location is called Beach-In Paal 21.
Our first date was five years ago at the dance event Sensation White in Amsterdam. Like it is in the name “Sensation White” the dress code was completely white! We liked that so much we decided to use the same dress code on our wedding five years later…The island is very special to the both of us; we have great memories of some special moments on the island. On the wedding we had to miss Essie’s sister and father and in memory of them we added two red balloons to our 50 white “Just Married” balloons. We let the two red balloons go at the same time at the land wash followed by the 50 white ones; which was very spectacular because of the strong wind!
Name one thing you regret…
After a long and hard thought about what to regret regarding our wedding… we decided there was nothing to really regret! Sure… Essie wasn’t on the bus that picked up all the wedding guests including me, the groom… So she missed a great bus drive around the island in a red English double decker bus. But in return she got that great entrance without anyone (including me!) seeing her before that moment! That moment was very very special and awesome!
… And one thing you’re really happy about/ proud of.
The first “todo” on our wedding-preparation-list was to get Jarg Woldhuis as our photographer. And we are very very proud on his pictures of our wedding! BANG!We’re very proud on Essie’s 80 year old mom and the fact that she attended the wedding from the beginning until the late end. She didn’t want to miss a thing, and she didn’t!!We are very happy we could realize our dream to get married on the beach with all our loved ones around us.
