How they met
We met during a goodbye party of a mutual friend who was leaving to America. Thomas introduced himself and we started talking. After that night it continued through Facebook, whatsapp and later on we were having long phone calls during day and night. One of our first dates was biking through Amsterdam. Thomas picked me up with his bike and I was sitting in the front ‘op de stang‘ just like we did at our civil wedding. This became ‘our thing’.
Their engagement story
Our first vacation together was a 5-week trip through South Africa. It was the best time ever and at the end of that trip, on the top of the Lions Head, Thomas asked me to move in with him. In February 2017 we went back to this magical country and decided to have a picnic on top of the Lions Head, because it’s definitely the best view ever. Just when I was photographing a squirrel, Thomas went down on one knee and asked me to marry him. Of course I screamed ‘YES’. We were beyond happy and overwhelmed with love. It ended up being the best trip ever and we decided that the Lions Head, now really is ‘our’ magic mountain.
A promise to each other and a celebration that we’ve really chosen for one another. Through good and bad times. It’s a commitment for a lifetime and a safe haven for a future family. Whatever life may bring us; we have each other and are an unconditional team.
It may sound silly but marriage makes that bound really stronger. Besides, we are both people that like to celebrate life, and the special moments you experience during this life. And what is more beautiful then celebrating your love with the people you love? That’s also why we choose to get married 2 times; 1 time in Amsterdam (were it all started) and 1 time in Spain, near to Thomas’ parents house, because it’s a magical place where nature is at it’s best.
