Ingrid & Jeroen’s lovebug family shoot

Eppel Fotografie - 033

Morning lovelies! Something a little different, yet totally adorable coming up this morning, in the shape of this cute little family of lovebugs!  Mum and Dad of three gorgeous little girls, Jeroen & Ingrid are tying the knot later this summer in a family-orientated Italian wedding.  So rather than a couple shoot with their photographer Ralf, from Eppel Photography, they quite rightly wanted to include their girls.  Their shoot takes on a fun retro holiday vibe, taking an amazing vintage VW bus down to the lakeside for a bit of family fun!

Here’s Ingrid with their story ~

It’s been 11 years that cupid shot his arrow through our hearts. Jeroen came to pick me up one day on his motorcycle and spontaneously kissed my forehead.  I jumped on the back of his motorcycle  and the rest is history!

On holiday in Italy last year, we had a picnic in the middle of the cypress and olive trees in the hills of Tuscany.  Typically of Jeroen, we looked for over an hour for the perfect spot in 34 degree heat!  When we finally sat down on the rug he popped the question, of course I said yes!  We’d been together for 10 years at that time,  and he told me marrying the love of his life with our three girls would be the best celebration!

We’ve been planning our wedding for a year, and it was awesome to do a pre-shoot with our photographer before the wedding.  It helps to feel free and it’s cool to know the person behind the lens.  We’re getting married in Italy with our family, and then coming back to the Netherlands for a church ceremony and big party!

After a decade-long career in corporate interior design, I took a giant leap of faith, left the security of an office job, and founded B.LOVED in 2011 as a platform for romantic and beautiful wedding inspiration. Thanks to a whole lot of creativity, hard work and passion, my gamble paid off and B.LOVED became one of the leading wedding blogs in the UK.

I'm also a co-founder at The Brand Studio, where I design and curate beautiful photoshoots for wedding and lifestyle brands, as well as running wedding industry community the B.LOVED Hive where I support and nurture wedding pros building industry leading businesses. Yep, I definitely have the best job in the world.
