In the words of Lewis Carroll, let's "begin at the beginning"... Engaged Collective is a cast of suppliers that live and breath weddings, and who's sole purpose is to make them unique and appealing to the most modern-day bride.
The photo shoot's location was held at the Marcel Wanders’ designed hotel, Andaz Amsterdam Prinsengracht. The hotel follows the story of Alice in Wonderland, and this shoot was a modern-day take on the fairytale. Myrthe, a stylist and wedding planner, organised the 'Sophisticated Alice' shoot concept, and brought together part of this Collective, to work together translating a well-known novel into real life.
Plants, flowers and cut foliage transformed a simple vintage sofa into a garden of Eden, to create the perfect ceremony backdrop to say "I do".
In addition, the shoot provided a stunning fantasy backdrop for a lunch held in the Atelier, straight afterward. Engaged Collective guests from stylists and wedding planners, through to stationery designers and cake-makers, networked, wined and dined over a 3-course meal, served by the chefs at Bluespoon.
The 'indoor table gardens' setting lead diners' imaginations adrift, as they nibbled on their roasted langoustines and venison. Tulips, fern, dill, moss, anenomes, scabiosa and ranunculus 'grew' from the navy linen cloths.
Fresh flowers and moss were added to the wedding invitation ensemble, by Studio Spruit.
Vows were made, and tears were shed, as videographer Great Takes, captured the true feeling of Roel & Sevil, a real-life couple, on their romantic 'wedding day' though the hotel, bar and canal boat. The photographs were taken by Angela Bloemsaat.

We hope this leaves you "curiouser and curiouser!”.
