Feeling sporty? Today we’re heading to Belgium for something a little different, and something so, so cool, designed by Immer. It’s both full of color and minimal, at the same time!
Elke Van den Ende, the photographer behind this editorial, shares: The theme and colors of the shoot were inspired by the location, an incredibly cool gym that opened a couple of years ago. The colors of the gym floor and the building inspired the flowers and the overall styling. We also put some thought in the ceremony and used the theme there as well: the couple is married by a referee, and for their exit…we didn’t throw rice or flower petals —rather ping pong balls!
Let’s get this ball rolling and head to the gym (aka Sportingenk in Genk, Belgium).
Game. Set. Match. Now that’s how you create a minimal yet sporty invitation suite! Well done, Studio Posen!
If you look real closely, you can see adorable little sneakers peeking out from the Charlie Brear gown!
Playing off the pink pops of the building, Annelies Vansant crafted this brilliant bouquet.
A referee to officiate the ceremony? So genius!
Minn, the ceremony + concept designer, added the perfect touch: ping pong balls to celebrate the moment—so fun!!
We adore how they brought in the vibrant pops and utilized the backdrop of the gym. This truly is sporty + chic, right?
This “Ballin'” Tablescape
The tablescape was lined with tennis balls, of course.
Bags of popcorn as the favors—just like you would get at a sporting game…so clever.
The Team Players
Sneakers of champions!
A team of soccer players encouraged the couple to kiss. Cool detail: the couple actually met because they were volleyball players, and the bride used to play volleyball in the gym.
And of course, there was an epic cake by Mieke Bakt!
How’s that for a winning shot? This just proves that you can turn anything + everything into a chic theme.
So, if there’s something you and your love want to incorporate into your big day, we say do it!
