Bas and Chi are celebrating their love today at the wedding venue Hortus Botanicus in Leiden. However, they start the day in Delft, where they separately get ready in the house of friends. With a first look in the center of Delft, where they get to see each other for the first time in their wedding attire, the session begins to capture some cool wedding portraits in the city. It's warm, so a short stop to get some ice cream is very welcome.
After the wedding portraits, we drive towards Leiden where a lot of guests are already waiting for them along the quay at the Hortus. Bas and Chi make a special entrance by arriving in a large boat. With loud applause, they are welcomed, and we head to the orangery in the Hortus, where the ceremony will take place. An intimate ceremony follows, and after a wholehearted yes, a toast is raised to the newlyweds, and the reception begins.
After cutting the wedding cake and receiving congratulations, it's time to have a beautiful dinner in the garden of the Hortus. After dinner, I take Bas and Chi for a short stroll through the beautiful gardens that the Hortus is rich in. There is beautiful light, allowing us to capture typical golden hour photos, and after a session of just fifteen minutes, we quickly return to the orangery to get ready for the party. Chi changes into a new dress for the party, and after a spectacular entrance, it's time to hit the dance floor.
Bas and Chi, thank you for allowing me to capture this beautiful wedding for you!!
