A Fairytale Brussels Wedding:

an Open-Air Wedding at Groot-Bijgaarden Castle

with Matthias & Irina

Brussels is renowned for its charming squares, delectable chocolates, and rich historical tapestry. But for Matthias and Irina, the magic of the city extends far beyond its cobblestone streets. This loved-up couple has chosen a truly enchanting venue to solidify their vows: the magnificent Groot-Bijgaarden Castle.


Steeped in Flemish Renaissance grandeur, Groot-Bijgaarden Castle, located a mere 7 kilometers from the city center, offers a unique blend of history, romance, and breathtaking scenery. As guests arrived for the ceremony, the enchanting melody of Matthias' guitar filled the air, a heartfelt serenade for his soon-to-be bride. Imagine the scene: Irina walking down the aisle, surrounded by the picturesque moat and centuries-old beech trees, with Matthias's music creating a deeply personal touch to this momentous occasion. An open-air ceremony at this location promises an unforgettable experience, allowing Matthias and Irina to declare their love under the  Belgian sky.


The castle itself, a masterpiece of 17th-century architecture, provides a stunning backdrop for every aspect of the wedding celebration. The elegant halls offer a sophisticated setting for the reception, while the charming on-site chapel, unchanged for centuries, whispers tales of past love stories. The five-arch bridge with its heraldic lions and the dramatic drawbridge add a touch of fairy tale whimsy, perfect for capturing those timeless photographs that will forever document this momentous occasion. It's the feeling of stepping back in time, of being surrounded by the whispers of history, that creates a truly unforgettable atmosphere. 


The night culminated in a beautiful dance prepared by the couple themselves. This final act of love and connection, under the twinkling lights of the castle, was the perfect ending to a truly fairytale Brussels wedding.
