Sonja and Geoffrey’s intimate elegant wedding
These newlyweds had their elegant wedding exactly 10 years to the day after they first met. Our WED2B Real Weddings feature reveals more…
Sonja and Geoffrey first met in Turkey. “Our wedding day was exactly 10 years after we first met,” says Sonja.
Shopping for the dress
Sonja found her dream dress at WED2B’s Antwerp store. “WED2B is such a nice shop with very affordable bridal wear,” she says. “The sales staff were very professional and I also found a dress that wasn’t available in other shops.”
“I am 53 years old and the fitted Frankie dress I chose was perfect for my age, with no lace, no bling, just perfect.”
An elegant wedding on a beautiful estate
Sonja and Geoffrey married on Saturday 24the September 2022 in Burchthoeve ‘t Withof in Wommelgem. “We found the wedding venue through the internet,” says Sonja. “It is a beautiful estate with lots of greenery and nice corners for photos. Inside it’s also beautifully decorated and romantic.”
The big day
“Unfortunately, on the day, the weather was a bit rainy,” says Sonja. “After the ceremony we had dinner with our immediate family. This was followed by some photographs.”
“Later in the evening we had a party with family and friends with a delicious dessert buffet,” says Sonja. “Our first dance was to ‘You're the Reason’ by Sarah and Koen Wauter.”
“As favours, we gave personalised thank yous to all our guests then danced the night away to a DJ,” says Sonja.
The best bits…
“Everything was perfect,” says Sonja. “Just how I had planned it.
My top tips…
“Don't spend too much money on things you will only wear once,” says Sonja. “Don't skimp on quality, only on prices. I organised everything myself and I'm really proud that everything went well.”
