This Untraditional Indian Wedding in Amsterdam has a Major Wow Factor

For Saroj and Raaziek, a traditional Indian wedding with several days of events and hundreds of guests, held little appeal. So instead, this duo decided to create a wedding that was totally them: a nonreligious ceremony followed by an intimate reception infused with traditional Indian wedding colors like red, pink and purple. The end result is a wedding as beautiful as the city in which it took place. See it all from Wesley Nulens in The Vault!

From Back To StyleSaroj & Raaziek got married last September in beautiful Amsterdam! The bride and groom both have their roots in India, therefore they wanted an Indian vibe to come through in the styling of their big day. But, since Saroj family are Hindu, and Raazieks family are Muslim, the decided not to include any religious influences in their wedding, as not to offend any members of both their family’s. Being quite the untraditional couple, they were looking for a unique style for their wedding. A combination of class, vintage charm and Indian details. As their stylist, I incorporated these elements in the decoration of their beautiful little apartment in the middle of Amsterdam. And on both wedding locations; ceremony and dinner.

This day in September couldn’t possible have been more rainy..typical Dutch weather..so we were in luck most of the photo shoot and wedding locations were indoors. During a few dry moments Wesley Nulens, the incredibly talented photographer, managed to make some beautiful shots of the couple in the Amsterdam Hortus Botanicus.

As a colour scheme we went for a muted and soft approach on traditional Indian wedding colors such as reds, pinks and purples. To keep with the vintage charm, we went for soft, pastel versions of these colors.

Traditional Indian weddings tend to last several days and included many hundreds of guests. This is another part this unique couple wanted to do differently. They decided to only invite a very small number of close family friends, and keep their big day truly intimate.

Brides advice: Stay true to yourself and who you both are. The day should be all about you and your love for each other. So do exactly what you both want.

From Masha BakkerThe theme is “Delfts Blauw” inspired by the typically blue coloured tableware and porcelain Holland is famous for. The different shades of blue and white come back through the whole series of images. We used flowers, cakes and beautiful accessories for the details. We work with vendors and together we inspire Dutch couples and try to help them to make their day as unique and beautiful as possible.

Elegant ‘Something Blue’ Netherlands Wedding Inspiration

My great-grammy was a collector of many things: teapots, teddy bears and of course, her beloved Delftware. Admittedly, I suppose I always felt it was old-fashioned, but after seeing this Delft-blue inspired shoot from Anouschka Rokebrand? Well, it doesn’t feel so old-fashioned anymore—but rather elegant and picturesque for a sweet ‘something blue’ wedding. See it all here.

From Anouschka RokebrandThe look of this shoot is inspired by the romantic handpainted Delft pottery. With a palette of pale, dusky and powder blues which is offset with white, grey and hints of brass to give an elegant, luxe feel. The beautiful table was adorned with beautiful pale blue linens. For the stationery a hint of calligraphy was used in the design. Beautiful brass candlesticks and delicate glassware was used. One gorgeous centerpiece on the table and beautiful antique wooden chairs completed the look.

For the sweettable, Sugarlips Cakes had created two different cakes and sweets all in the pale blue and white shades to match the theme perfectly. Our models, real couple Dorien and Steffen, wore a dark blue suit and two dresses were arranged for Dorien to wear. One pale blue one and a white one with a lace top and tulle skirt. We used beautiful headpieces and veils from SIBO designs and jewelry from DRKS. The shoot took place at the stunning castle Hooge Vuursche, in the woods in Baarn, The Netherlands. This shoot was part of Louise Beukes workshop during the third edition of the European Wedding Congress.
