In the way that each loving couple has their own story, Exquisite Gay Weddings has a unique history. The passion to organise weddings for LGBT couples has its origin in a personal history. EGW founder and Professional Wedding Planner Antonio Ortega Jaen shares his story.
“My name is Azael Antonio Ortega Jaen and together with my company, Exquisite Gay Weddings, I want you, as my customer, to experience a care-free and unforgettable day.
I was born in Panama City and I have my colourful background to thank for my creative vision.
The most important experience in my life was moving to the Netherlands at the age of 26. I was welcomed with open arms and here, in the middle of rural Holland, I found my home. My two children and partner are my beacons of love and trust. They, the cultures that are part of me and, most of all, love are what inspire me.
I am an acknowledged and certified Professional Wedding Planner and I have the Wedding Planner International Institute to thank for that. With a large network of reliable suppliers and partners I get to prove my ambition, which is to plan the wedding of your dreams.”

Kerry Reinking can boast a great career in the software industry and has also discovered the special world of yoga, both as a student and international yoga teacher. However, nothing can be compared to the satisfaction that photography gives him. Most of his customers are not models but "ordinary people" who don't always feel at ease in front of the camera. Kerry's key to success is the way that he puts everyone at ease when facing the camera and in this way, he distinguishes himself from other photographers. With EGW owner Antonio as his life partner, he is part of the perfect team for your wedding.
