While we adore splashes of bright colours at a wedding, or the dreamy hues of contrasting pastels, sometimes it’s the most simple palettes that are the most beautiful.

Clean, fresh and pure, the colour white can be chic, romantic and atmospheric. But it doesn’t have to be stark.

As this enchanting inspiration shoot by Alexandra Vonk Photography, with Susanne Hyams of RedWhiteBluePink and Annette Spijkers of Hartje Blaricum shows, white can also be rustic, whimsical, and oh-so-pretty.

Featuring the creative talents of some of the top wedding vendors in the Netherlands, if you’re minimalist couple who want to add texture to your wedding, fans of the rustic aesthetic looking for something unfussy, or someone who just wants to simplify the look of their day, this shoot is laden with inspiration.

(Along with some gorgeous hair and make-up ideas too!)

We’ll pass you over to the wonderful Susanne Hyams of RedWhiteBluePink  to tell us a little more about it.

From the Stylist

True love needs nothing more than only water and air.

You don’t need anything more than just the basics. That’s what this shoot is all about.

The green stands for the beginning and the nature, the white stands for the most purest and purity.

A natural beauty like this bride, is beautiful in her simplicity. We’ve used naturals for the makeup and hair, and even the wedding dress is made of beautiful chiffon. 

Nature and purity is reflected in the ceremony setting with a gorgeous backdrop. Hand-painted plates for dinner and sweets with ingredients like rosemary and lemon. All this in the beautiful surroundings of Buitenplaats Amerongen in the Netherlands.
