    Heerlijk & Hecht, our favorite Dutch caterer

    Okay, so you’ve find the perfect Dutch wedding venue, but that doesn’t mean you are ready for the big day. Weddings can get bigger and bigger. The project grows and grows. So it’s very nice to have a caterer that does a lot of work for you. For instance Heerlijk & Hecht, a fantastic group of people that can cook, style and host your wedding. It was wonderful to see what Anne Floor, owner of Heerlijk & Hecht, did for this couple. The hosted the entire event. And we are so thankful that we could be part of this wedding day.

    Inspiration for a kids wedding

    We were so impressed with this wedding that we would love to show you all the little details. Just to show some inspiration. Especially for couples that consider to get married with a lot of children on their wedding day. This couple had an “out of the box” mind set. The decided to plan their wedding around their children. Because if your children are entertained, you kind of are as well, right? So in the end they had a marshmallow-moment, great food for the kids and a super late dinner so every parent could bring their kid to sleep before “grown up-” dinner started.

    This day started in De Dassenhut, a super romantic little cabin!

    These flowers were arranged by Bloem Marie. Heerlijk & Hecht normally teams up with V&V Bloemen en Wonen, but this time the bride asked one of her contacts. We love the colors.

    When you have two daughters and a sun you need a lot of clothing.

    Prachtige trouwjurk met kant, voorkant en achterkant. The maquis tent was styled with stacks of hay, plaids, folding chairs and flowers. All kids sat front row.

    Mooie trouwring foto's.

    We love to photograph wedding rings.

    Lekkere hartige hapjes van Heerlijk & Hecht. Iets lekkers om te drinken tijdens de receptie.  In the afternoon a lot of guests went home, but the inner most circle stayed for a very special workshop and load of great food.

    Many guests slept over at the Heische Hoeve and the youngsters got to sleep in a tent. They all got a sleep-over goody bag.

    The stationery was arranged by Heerlijk & Hecht.

    So this couple didn’t end their day with a party, but instead choose for a good dinner. Most kids were to bed so the adults could enjoy a quiet evening with great wine, food and company.
