Let me introduce myself
I am Jacomien Valk-Zevenbergen. I come from a small but very popular village called Renesse, which is situated on the beautiful island of Schouwen-Duiveland in the province of Zeeland in the Netherlands.
How would I best describe myself
I am a Family woman, enthusiastic, positive, passionate, honest and warm hearted. I love to tell a good story and read a lot, especially Romance books and my favourite film is “Pretty Woman”.
I love to cook and especially when the kitchen table is filled with family and friends, and our kitchen table is huge! I especially love the beach, walking with our dogs no matter what the weather, Riding my horse, and in the summertime I love to go to our little cabin on the beach and enjoy the sun, with my family and a good glass of rosé.
My dearest ones and our animal farm
My Husband Ed, my Soul Partner “mon amour pour toujours” and our 2 kids, and our animals. Our two elderly Shetlanders Pinkeltje and Herik, and my huge horse Oberon. Our big red cat Tommy, the dogs Humpty Dumpty, everyone’s friend (they all want to take him home) and BonBon.
The Best job ever
As a wedding officiant, multi and bilingual, in German, French, English, Spanish and Dutch. Conducting weddings bare feet in the sand on the beach, at a beautiful castle, in the woods or in your own garden, for me, every marriage is a big celebration!
A Dream come true
From the start of “van ver trouwen” in 2012 I have conducted beautiful weddings for international couples in the Netherlands but also abroad. I love to hear the most beautiful stories from my bridal couples, which I write down and read out at the wedding ceremony, so I can tell everyone your story, filled with loving words about your love for each other, which touches me deeply, time and time again, and is an indescribable honour to me.
