Wedding photos at Hotel New York in Rotterdam


First, a disclaimer because we are dealing with an exceptional situation in exceptional times. There are some pictures in this blogpost where it seems like people don't adhere to the 1.5 rule. In some cases, this is an optical illusion thanks to the composition in the photo. There have been no violations of the rules and people you do see close together are in all cases part of the same household.

Wedding preparations in Zoetermeer

I start the day with Wouter, but like many grooms, Wouter is ready in no time and within half an hour I am already on my way to Zoetermeer to capture Lisette's preparations for the big day.
On arrival there is chaos and everyone is busy preparing for this beautiful wedding that will take place in Rotterdam with an amazing view of the Erasmusbrug.

Kids are playing, people eat breakfast, the women get their make-up done and everybody dresses up to make sure they look great for this amazing wedding that's about to take place. Lisette is just in time, Wouter rings the doorbell to pick her up. This is also the first moment that this wedding couple will see each other that day, an important moment that always helps to bring a smile on my face when seeing emotional moments unfold in front of my camera.

Wedding photos at the Kop van Zuid in Rotterdam

After a short stop for wedding portraits at De Rottemeren, a lake near Bleiswijk, we leave for Rotterdam where the ceremony will eventually take place.
Before we go to the wedding location, however, we stop to take some wedding photos at the Kop van Zuid in Hotel New York. A fantastic location for beautiful wedding portraits if you are getting married in Rotterdam. After a short visit to this location, we leave and cross the river Maas to the location where this wedding will take place.

Getting married at Boompjes in Rotterdam

It is only a short drive from Kop van Zuid to Boompjes, but the short drive over the Erasmus Bridge is still a nice ride. The wedding location Boompjes has a beautiful view of the river Maas and this modern bridge. Because Boompjes is fully surrounded with windows on all sides, you can see the river Maas and the Erasmusbrug from any angle. An amazing view for any wedding!

And this is how Lisette and Wouter's wedding unfolds, with this beautiful painting like background. People laugh, cry, eat cake and share happy memories. Although many things are not possible due to the social distancing measures, Lisette and Wouter have decided to focus on the things that are possible; Celebrating love with each other and all their family and friends.

Lisette and Wouter, congratulations!! Thank you for your trust in me, I wish you all the luck in the world!!
