Marieke and Max's cat snuggled wholeheartedly against my camera case, soaked in cat and dog odors. Max had a nice cup of coffee and so did I. For a moment I imagined myself in earlier times in their cozy home. Because besides loving each other, Marieke and Max also love vintage. With a slight preference for the 40's. I can appreciate that. But where I don't exactly have tight dance moves, Marieke and Max have them in abundance. They dance a lot and like to dance. It is with some shame that I admit that I have forgotten the exact name of the type of dance. But that doesn't matter.
Max: Hairdresser by profession. But I don't think that really covers it. Maybe I should say barber. Relaxed guy with a nice collection of tattoos.
Marieke: Just like me, she is a wedding photographer! So no pressure at all for me to capture another photographer's wedding. But I won't let myself be known.
Those two had some hard times with their wedding. Corona hasn't exactly been their best friend. This resulted in changes in date and location. The final result: A cozy wedding in the garden of Marieke's parents' house. Enjoy yourself with a select group of family and friends. I always think such intimate weddings are beautiful. For 100%, people feel comfortable in such a small group. And then it is quite an honor to be part of that.
It was a beautiful day. Very nice. Don't think about corona together. Together we don't give a fuck about the rain that fell every now and then. Nothing at all for a while, except enjoyment and love. Their vows to each other really brought a lump to your throat. So much love between those two. I could barely keep my eyes dry. Strong stuff, that Fisherman's Friend!
