Belgian Destination Wedding | Bas & Lars


All weddings are very emotional events and there are usually lot’s of laughter and plenty of tears too. I must say though, this particular wedding was an epic tearjerker of the highest order.

Bas & Lars had tied the knot the previous year with just their immediate family, so this wedding was for all of their many friends and extended family.

They hired a ‘wedding storyteller’ who had asked so many questions about the couple it seemed like she was an old friend and she had everyone laughing and crying in equal measure.

Plus with both Bas & Lars being very emotional (to say the least) they had everyone reaching for their handkerchiefs too!

On a beautiful day in the Belgian countryside I genuinely have never seen so many people crying and laughing at a wedding.

The ‘ceremony’ lasted for nearly 2 hours in which they also asked four good friends to talk about the present, past and the future, again with very emotional results!


I hope you enjoy the photographs!
