Mill wedding in the Netherlands | Authentic, unposed and natural documentary wedding photography
If you are a fan of authentic, natural and unposed documentary wedding photography (in Surrey or beyond), have a scroll down. I recently captured this wedding in the Netherlands, where the couple had chosen a truly unique wedding venue: an old mill called “De Korenmolen”, located in Breda.
My second shooter and I started the day capturing the preps of bride & groom. It is generally custom in the Netherlands that bride & groom see each other before the wedding and actually have a proper ‘frist look’ moment before the day starts. And so we did :-). Capturing this in an outside space like the garden gives the photographers the opportunity to properly capture the reactions of both bride & groom at the same time, which is wonderful.
Soon after we left for a lovely estate nearby, called Landgoed Dordwijk for the portrait session of the couple. Although the lighting conditions were very harsh as it was a sunny day, we found loads of lovely little places where we had open shade, like a cute bridge and of course the orangerie. There are plenty of very similar venues in the South East, orangeries where you can also have your ceremony. Just to name a few: The Barbican and Northbrook Park.
As it was almost time to get married, we made our way to the wedding venue in Breda where the couple were about to tie the know in the mill. Also here there are some stunning similar wedding venues for example the Coltsford Mill in Surrey. It was a lovely ceremony followed by drinks & cake outside the premises and emotional speeches for the couple. The day concluded with a wonderful dinner, served upstairs in the mill. In short, a lovely day with an ever so lovely couple – congrats to Marjolein & Frank!
P.S. Thank you for being such an awesome couple and making it possible to win my second Nine Dots Award! :-)
