Katia and Eddy got very lucky in June, as they won our Giveaway and had the pleasure of celebrating their engagement with a styled engagement shoot, carefully planned and styled for them to enjoy in the beautiful city of Bruges.
Bruges, also called ‘the Venice of the North’, tell me, who wouldn’t dream of having an engagement shoot there! Davy Achten, the wedding planner and stylist behind this romantic styled tête-à-tête for two, loved creating this intimate atmosphere at the beautiful park of Bruges called Het Minnewater.
Let’s hear about Davy’s vision behind his beautiful styling work for K & E:
“The romantic surroundings of the green location Het Minnewater, inspired me to create this pastel styling. Bruges Minnewater is just one of the most romantic locations in Belgium, so the styling had to ooze that romance. Inspired by the charm of the ancient buildings in Het Minnewater I naturally added that rustic element to the styling, seen in the birch trees, the blue glasses and natural Chiavari chairs. When I think of Bruges it also has that sense of sophisticated chic, so I added a little sparkle with pearl strands, hanging flowers and transparant candle holders. The colours had to be pastel pink and blue because in my opinion these colours are most romantic.”
After a lovely photo walk in the city Katia and Eddy enjoyed a little time to themselves, with a glass of Champagne and delicate chocolate bonbons from the Belgian, prestigious chocolatier, Mary.
Hair & Make-up was done by Nathalie Peeters. Nathalie applied soft shades of eye shadow to achieve that romantic look matching beautifully with Katia’s sophisticated and casual chic, beige outfit choice.
Beautiful flower arrangements and a wedding bouquet were made especially for this shoot by Verde Bloemen.
The perfect day!
