In the summer of 2013 Maarten coordinated a 3-day wedding event at the isle of Terschelling and that is when his love for wedding planner solidified.
Once at TIO University of Applied Sciences, Maarten had indicated he wanted to pursue the profession of wedding planner. He was advised against it, he was told it was a difficult market to enter, it was supposed there were too many inexperienced non-graduated wedding planners out there. Maarten however was not to be swayed and performed his final thesis under the wings of a wedding planner. After succesfully completing his studies he knew for sure: this is what he wanted to do!
It is barely half past seven in the morning when for the tenth time his phone is ringing while he takes a sip from his coffee-to-go. He is heading for Amsterdam to coordinate a wedding. Having arrived, everyone is busy, flowers are being arranged, tables are laid, the sound technicians are installing their equipment. The pastry shop owner arrives with the wedding cake and the caterer is debriefing his team. Any stranger walking the premises would only see complete chaos. Maarten see suppliers, checks his script, his time table and delivered services and knows but this: everything runs by the book and smoothly at that.
Maarten’s passion is organizing, being in control and directing people in order to, entirely project-based, bring to life the perfect day. Intimate, small-scale, urban, elegant, extravagant, theme or religious? Maarten makes sure that your ideas and wishes come together and will culminate in a day where your love for eachother will shine through in every single detail!
