We prefer to celebrate our wedding weekend without children, so parents can enjoy the celebration optimally.

Do you want to surprise the wedding couple with a speech? Please contact master of ceremonies Carlijn to coordinate to avoid the wedding day to be overly speech-filled.

Share your most beautiful, craziest & funniest photos & movies

On Saturday there will be a photographer to capture all wonderful moments. There will also be several moments however that the photographer will not be present (e.g. the drinks on Friday evening, the party on Saturday night, and the brunch on Sunday morning).

The wedding couple would be delighted if these moments are captured by the guests, but please do not share your pictures (and video's) through social media. Pictures and video's can be shared through the Wedbox app. All guests can use this app to share, view and download pictures.

The link for the wedding-account:
The app can be downloaded though app-/play-stores and upon request the Wedding-ID ("Bruiloft ID") GDUTYC should be entered.
