In one of the oldest botanical gardens of Europe, Gerdine and Bas celebrated their special day.

Are you getting married in the Netherlands but you are still looking for that wow-location?

Hortus Amsterdam is definitely one of my favorite wedding locations, who would have thought that you could have a tropical wedding here in the city?

Here's how Gardine and Bas celebrated their day!

After getting ready nearby, the bridal couple and the wedding party started their tour to Hortus Amsterdam, a three-climate botanical garden in the heart of Amsterdam.

The ceremony took place in the intimate palm greenhouse.

Champagne was popped unter the big tree ...

and after that, the whole party strolled through the garden, to the orangery for some drinks, snacks and a jazz duo.

The newly-weds and I disappeared for a moment to take some photos.

We arrived at the big palm greenhouse where a stunning dinner setting awaited us, a true gem.

After the dinner the couple surprised everyone with a twist.

Instead of a traditional first dance, a festival themed music group arrived, the „Pretvormers“.

And with their joyful In the jungle, the mighty jungle, the whole wedding party was guided through the garden for one last stop.

Cocktails and a dance floor under the stars awaited them. The big finale!
