we love the sea

 The islands of Cape Verde are perfect for sea lovers! fresh fish, waves, kitesurfing and new developments on the old piers

About 90% of food must be imported in Cape Verde; fishing is an economic activity, which development on industrial basis could help Cape Verde fill the food deficit gap and earn some through export of fish. Today fishing only contributes 1,5% to the GDP.  The pictures are taken at 1. Sal - Santa Maria 2. Sao Vincente - Mindelo 3. San Antao - Ponta del Sol

scheveningen wedding

This is my favourite wedding shot! The photo is taken by a friend who owns an old hasselblad camera 


The idea of a wedding tree is another great idea from Etsy and a wedding blog.  I designed my own tree (gastenboek boom) in Adobe Illustrator which I printed at a local copy shop and bought the ink pads at Action. The guests were provided with a piece of paper for testing and tissues for cleaning.

thank you chocolate

The texts on the thank you chocolates were so sweet!


The cake toppers that we saw were all dull. Luckily the "best-webshop-ever": Etsy, has several cool other options. We bought the wooden figures from goosegrease ( (€13) and painted them ourselves

wedding stationary

We designed our own "wedding stationary" existing of save-the-date fridge magnets, lasercut invitation cards and customised stamps. The fishes from the card can easily be pressed out and were used for the mobile on the wedding day. Our inspiration came from the harbour and the sculptures at Scheveningen (See old blog post)


The fishes are decorated by our guests and form a mobile


 Anemones are my favourites flowers!
My sister gave me this book to write the nicest and longest love letter to my special love, 1 page inspired me to use chalk on our walls as a decoration.
