Wine Castle of Genoels-Elderen Bridal Shoot by Gert Huygaerts

Today we're taking you on a lovely journey to the Wine Castle of Genoels-Elderen, the only castle of it's kind in Belgium. This gorgeous location set the stage for a truly beautiful bridal inspiration shoot by the talented Gert Huygaerts. Gert and his team did a remarkable job of allowing the beauty around them to truly compliment the scene they set. The natural beauty of the model, the organic feel of the florals and the perfect subtle wind, truly bring this beautiful shoot to life. 

From photographer Gert Huygaerts: Being inspired by the season and the fragile feminine beauty, we gathered a team of wedding professionals to give an identity to this inspiration.

The unique location of the winery castle, the only one in Belgium, was the perfect location to let the delicate bride shine in all her beauty.  The matching florals were handpicked the same morning by Emily of Fleuropean, to make sure everything looked downright stunning. Keeping things clean and not overdone allowed us to focus on the beauty of the model and what the different artists provided us.

The combination of the lush wedding gown that Sheila from Sibo Designs provided us, was an ideal match with our beautiful model Anneleen.  Her makeup was kept very natural and soft to let her natural beauty shine through.  Peggy Timmermans Make-Up artist just knows how to rock this!  Hair was styled in a contemporary and loose creation by our hair-stylist Joke.

The combination of this team and the hospitality of the hosts at the castle were so inspiring and energizing, that the shoot seemed truly effortless and time flew by.  I’m truly happy to have worked with these amazing people to set down a result like this!
