Meet the team

Bèhanke Schutte

Owner and Founder

An inspiration for young women and a hard working individual making a difference in the world of bridal.

 

What is the best thing about your job?
I absolutely love to follow bridal trends and then predict what would happen next in bridal fashion. Hence the reason why we don’t have ordinary dresses in store.  Secondly, brides and their stories really inspires me.

 

What makes you laugh the most?
Definitely my dogs! I’m obsessed with them!

 

Would you rather ride a bike, ride a horse, or drive a car?
Our dogs go everywhere with us so drive a car.

 

Who or what inspires you in your career?
Our brides, everyone is so different and special so unique and beautiful. I LOVE when the bride looks at herself in the mirror with her dream dress on and her facial expression is just absolute contentment.

I absolutely looooovvveeeee dog videos, any cute or funny videos about dogs or animals crack me up!

 

Who or what inspires you in your career?

I try and take something good from everyone I meet. Whether is to learn something I should avoid or if it’s something I can apply. Just by working with Béhanke and Celine in this short time has already inspired me in so many areas within myself where I can grow. You will never find a day where they do not give their everything to each and every bride that walks in to Blanco.
