An Old World Inspiration Sesh You Need to See to Believe

Whether you’re planning an Old World-inspired celebration of your very own or just want to spend some time soaking in some of the prettiest details you will ever see, this sweet inspiration sesh is a MUST for your Monday. From the beautiful blooms from Meesterlijk Groen to the stunning castle setting, head to THE VAULT to soak in every gorgeous moment captured by the talented Audra Wrisley.

From Audra Wrisley Photography… Living in The Netherlands this summer, my husband Thijs and I were inspired to capture some of the old world flair of Europe with this wedding inspiration shoot at Kasteel Rosendael. Nestled in one of the smallest towns in Holland, Kasteel Rosendael is an incredible historic venue that finds its origin all the way back in the early 14th century. The castle’s stunning architecture, beautiful rose garden, and enchanting grounds were the perfect setting for our inspiration shoot. To make the vision come to life, we connected with Nailia from Best Day Ever Events, and with her help we put together an amazing team of vendors from all over the country.

Beginning the day in the tower room with it’s stately floor to ceiling windows, our bride stepped into her elegant Unielle Couture gown. Leaving the castle, she met her groom on the front steps of the castle, before making their way into the gorgeous rose garden. We continued our shoot at the backside of the fortress, which is backed by a large pond and next to it an intricate and completely unique gallery made up of seashells from the late 1700’s. This beautiful day ended with photos with an incredibly graceful classic Jaguar, as it whisked the couple away.

Art Venue

From Anouschka Rokebrand Photography… International weddings, they remain my absolute favorite! Lucy is half Dutch-half Irish, while Haakon is half Norwegian-half American. So you can imagine how international this wedding was!

Friends and family traveled from all over the globe to join them in Amsterdam for their amazing wedding day.

Lucy and Haakon met 10 years ago at University in Scotland and now call The Netherlands their home. Since they had so many people traveling from abroad, Amsterdam was the perfect place to host their wedding and they picked the beautiful Scheepvaartmuseum (maritime museum) as their venue. Since Haakon and his family work in shipping, this fitted them perfectly!

They both got ready at the lovely Hoxton hotel and we traveled to the museum by boat. Lucy wore a stunning soft blush pink Monique Lhuillier gown, paired with rose gold Jimmy Choos. So, so beautiful! The bridesmaids’ dresses were all different but matched perfectly with soft, nude hues and a bit of sparkle.

The ceremony set up was inside the museum in a light-filled room with a classic setup with white chairs. Meesterlijk Groen had created a gorgeous floral arch as a backdrop. The groom’s ring is an heirloom piece from the father of the bride.

After a lovely ceremony with speeches by loved ones, we took a few photos of the newly weds on the docks of the museum before dinner started.

The dining tables were styled beautifully with a gorgeous floral runner adorning the long tables, made of fresh flowers and eucalyptus and gorgeous stationery, designed by The Sparkle Company.

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 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.
