Arendshoeve – The Garden of Amsterdam | Enjoy!

Trouwen Arendshoeve Garden of Amsterdam 050

We already knew that it is beautiful to get married at The Garden of Amsterdam. But still it is special to come to this place for a ceremony. Especially with that super cute couple. Their entire wedding day had a botanical feel to it.

Tip from the bride: put all the names of your single friends at the bottom of your shoe: the name that stays visible the longest will be the first to get married!

Dancing in the streets

So much energy! So much noise! Dancing, music, scarves, colour: a day to remember. Sure, we photograph a lot of Dutch weddings, but that makes it extra fun to sometimes see what the customs are of another culture. And especially that wonderful uplifting music.

Turkish use for a wedding

Sercan has a Turkish family and so there were a lot of little Turkish customs. In the morning a parade with family, gathering at his parents where there was a lute and drum player, jewelry gifts and small games. For example, he was not allowed to enter the home of the bride. First the man of the house had to be bribed. Money was thrown through the letterbox and yes, the door finally opened. Then he also had to pay to enter the apartment complex where his parents live.

The colour red

In between, Rachel also got a nice red belt on and a red cloth over her head. And a jar was broken containing candy for the children. Although there were also some adults looking for some goodies ; ) I think hospitality was really the focus this day as well. In the morning of course, but also at lunchtime. Sercan’s parents had made delicious Turkish food for all the guests. We also ate a plate with them. Delicious! With a full stomach we went on the road again.

On to The Garden of Amsterdam

We shot the wedding photos in Amsterdam, but because it was very cold, it is February after all, we drove to De Arendshoeve (Garden of Amsterdam). This location is in fact a fantastic place to take pictures. Both outside and inside you have many botanical elements. Plants and flowers everywhere: wonderful! Outside there was hardly any green, but inside the greenhouse everything was like an oasis.

Look at that. That place of ceremony! The ceremony took place in the afternoon and was followed by a reception. When the group photos were taken, the bride and groom retreated so they could make a grand entrance later. We said goodbye around 18:00 and ended with a nice picture of bride and groom. Another lovely spring wedding!

One of those super-cute bridesmaids who secretly thinks the ceremony is a little long… During wedding ceremonies we always pay attention to capture little moments like these. Because children love to make their own plans.

Hug after the ceremony.

It is always great to see how happy a couple is right after the ceremony. Man and wife at last! Sercan gave his wife a lovely hug and swung her around.

Of course we made some pictures at that lovely flower arch. We started with a few family photos, but they became more and more. When we had seen most of the combinations, we still wanted to photograph these super cute bridesmaids.
