Rebecca + Johannes
How did you meet?
We met thrift shopping in Den Haag – we were both working there as expats.
When did you know they were the one?
After meeting, we grabbed dinner and connected straight away. We both knew from date one that we were each other’s forever.
What are your three favourite attributes of your partner?
He’s so kind, patient and loyal.
Who proposed and how?
Johannes proposed to me while hiking in Switzerland. Johannes likes to take photos with his drone and I always sit and eat and apple while waiting for him to finish. So there I am, sitting and eating my apple when he asked for a picture of us with the back drop of The Valley. We posed for some photos and then he got down on one knee and captured the whole thing with his drone it was golden hour in fall – the colours were stunning! I of course said yes!!! And then he popped out the champagne from his backpack.
Where did you fall in love with your dress and why?
I first saw Louie Flowy on an IG advert and knew instantly that was the dress for me! I travelled across the country to find a retailer that stocked MWL bridal, and as soon as I tried it on I was sold!
What was the best moment for you at your wedding?
The best moment was being reunited with our family! We live at the other side of the world for work, and the pandemic kept us apart for 2.5-years! Our wedding was not only our special day, but also a reunion with all our loved ones!
What were your favourite details?
Our venue was an industrial venue on the water front – as the sun set, the water glistened in the courtyard and the sky was such a beautiful colour!
What advice would you tell other brides?
Plan the day that makes you happy, and not to tick boxes.
Any standout vendors?
Nicki from Souvenir international wedding planners! She was honestly incredible and planned the wedding of our dreams! My husband and I were able to fully enjoy the day!
