Ellen & Bart | Wedding in Sechery, the Ardennes Belgium
Ellen & Bart had the dream to get married as a family. To get married with each other, but to also have their kids with them, and giving them a very important role in that day.
“We wanted to get married as a family en be so so thankful for everything that love has brought us in the last 15 years. From buying a house to getting kids to getting married – it was the perfect order for us. The order we dreamed about” – Ellen & Bart
And they did so at an amazing location in the Ardennes of Belgium (their favourite place to go for getaways in their own country). They found a beautiful house in a little village where their family could sleepover as well and loved the fact that the house could be the base of everything. So there was need to travel from location to location on that day, they could just go by the day really relaxed.
“We even gave our guests the assignment to ‘Enjoy, experience and remember’ – which was our motto for ourselves on the day itself as well. We were able to really live in the moment and leave everything up to our vendors that did a great job. It would be the best advise we can give other couples as well: surround yourself with the right people and make sure you don’t have to care about planning and such on your wedding day”
