You'll be forgiven for thinking this gorgeous bride with short hair and her dapper groom are models because they are that ruddy stylish. Their wedding decor and details are equally cool, using acrylic and minimalist fonts to make contemporary wedding signs, as well as, artisan floral arrangements including muted roses, orchids and dried palm leaves. We haven't even mentioned the black-tie attire yet! Need I go on? Enjoy!

What Made Our Day Unique

I (Hannah) lived in The Hague for 10 years with my parents. Beautiful city and close to the beach. We go back every year because we love how relaxed and chilled it is, it’s also where I feel closest to my Dad who I lost when I was 21. We loved that we were able to introduce our closest friends to a place that’s so special to us. Somewhere that would not normally be on the holiday destination list and where our guest didn’t expect to see the cool family-friendly beach bars. The venue put us in touch with Wendy from Something Borrowed Something New. We totally fell in love with her style we knew she was right for us. She works with some of the best suppliers in the business over in Holland and it was great to be able to allow her to be creative with our wedding. From following her, I noticed Jeroen (photographer) on her Instagram and loved his editorial style. We had a Skype meeting and connected with him straight away - he's incredible.

Bride with Short Hair

You'll probably be as shocked as me to learn that the vast majority of brides grow their hair long for their wedding day. But if your natural hairstyle is a short bob or pixie cut like our gorgeous bride Hannah then we definitely encourage you to keep those locks short. Hannah is the epitome of a cool bride with short hair, who positively beams in every capture. She wears the most beautiful Made With Love wedding dress and accessories it with a denim jacket for some laid back portraits on the beach. Told you she was cool!

Inspiration & Styling

We wanted to create a very relaxed and cool vibe for our wedding. We wanted to avoid the stuffy wedding feel and create something that matched the surroundings of the venue and the beach. Wendy showed us some of her mood boards of inspiration and some of the things she had created. We took a laid back approach - ultimately Wendy is the expert and we were confident she would put something together that would match our brief.

Hannah & Adam
Hannah and Adam had 24 children at their wedding so they hired a wedding creche service, who set up a play area on the beach with painting, teepees, fancy dress, goody bags and games. They also had a separate children's table during the wedding breakfast so parent guests could enjoy their meal and the speeches knowing their children were well looked after by the nannies. We think this is an absolutely fabulous idea and complete win-win for all. Have you considered inviting children guests to your wedding? If you have, how will you entertain them?
