Noémie & Francesca | Brussels Belgium Wedding
Noémie & Fran held an intimate and unique wedding in Brussels, Belgium. They started from scratch and chose the traditions that resonated with them, rather than taking a top-down approach to organising. They got rid of things like flowers, decorations, stationery, seating plans and other elements that they didn’t feel were important to them. They also chose to get ready together, do their own hair and makeup and decided to skip walking down an aisle for their ceremony. It was simple and this felt natural to them. They felt that their wedding should be an elevated normal day, rather than a scripted show.
Brussels exceeded all my expectations, and I will have such beautiful memories of roaming around this city with Noémie and Fran. We walked around the streets in the city centre, stopped into their favourite cafe for hot chocolates (a perfect Winter wedding activity!), and finished off the afternoon at a Christmas lights display in the main square.
Later in the evening, they held a small and relaxed ceremony at a Le Seventy-five in the city. Their ceremony was held by two close friends who translated it into both French and English. They finished the evening with a house party style celebration with their closest friends and family.
