Both from Australia bride and groom has met in Amsterdam, while they where on vacation. Scott has proposed 2 years ago, they decided very quickly that they want to get marry in Amsterdam. Also big ceremony and party is not what they were considering. So getting to elope in Amsterdam,place where they have met was the right choice. Exact 5 years after they have met they were supposed to say YES to each other, just within a couple hundred meters from the place they have saw each other for the first time.
Katrina has found us online and after skype meeting we could start with planning. after visiting couple of venue's we have decided on Waldorf Astoria: 5 star hotel in Amsterdam. they have little tea house in the yard, which was perfect for the wedding day. Katrina and Scott wanted to be surprised with the styling on their wedding day, we had a carte blanche: YAY!
We have designed a show stopper backdrop using lots and lots of flowers. The colors were burgundy, marsala, plump and green. Fancy hotel like Waldorf usually host classic weddings. This wedding was nothing they have seen before: Bohemian elopement.
After the personal ceremony couple and their two best friends had high tea Alice in wonderland style in the tea house. Spoiler: food looked like it was sweet, but it wasn't;)
Weather being nice we had wonderful time getting some extra pictures in the streets of Amsterdam.
I think it was one of the most memorable wedding we were a part of. So much love, taking time for every part of the wedding... Thats why we just adore elopements.
