Wedding In The Netherlands, Kampeerterrein De Lievelinge (Holland)

//Wedding In The Netherlands, Kampeerterrein De Lievelinge (Holland)


OK: this is the story of 11 guys from The Netherlands who went on September 7th-9th, 2018 to Barcelona on for a bachelor party, stag party, stag night, stag do, stag weekend, or a buck’s night. You know, a party held for the man who is to shortly enter marriage. One of them, Maarten, also thought it would be a good idea to hire a photographer in Barcelona to take some crazy shots. Maarten wrote to me: “He will probably be the last of us marrying (48 years old) so that’s why we decided to go to Barcelona for a whole weekend.” So I took those photos of their bachelor party in Barcelona.

Two days later they got the photos and I guess they liked it, because Maarten asked me if I could go to Netherlands the following weekend to photograph the wedding of his good friend. I said “YES”, and he started to find some sponsors for the cause. I became a Present, and the groom and the bride didn’t know I was coming…

On Friday 14th I flew to Amsterdam, Maarten picked me up at the airport and we drove to where the wedding was taking place: an amazing camping called KAMPEERTERREIN DE LIEVELINGE, in VUREN.

On Satuday they had two ceremonies, a non-official one in the morning, by the lake, and another one (and official) after the dinner. Right before the party.

They called the whole thing TTK: TIE THE KNOT, DE LIEVELINGE – WEDDING FESTIVAL 2018. And it felt just like that, just like a festival, A LOVE FESTIVAL.

I had a great time up there. DANK U WEL, Maarten, Bjoke, Fred-Anton, the rest of the bachelor’s party guys and all the other “sponsors”.
