The Secret Chapel
The city of Amsterdam in the Netherlands is the perfect backdrop for a romantic city elopement. With its characteristic canals and dreamy houses, you'll find yourself in a beautiful wedding dream. Amsterdam canal houses look very tiny on the outside, but actually, they are spacious on the inside and hold elegant gardens and courtyards. The Secret Chapel, managed by Private Mansions, is a historic hidden Roman Catholic church from 1751 and is a hidden gem in the center of Amsterdam.
Catch The Vibe
Start your day right with a sweet and luxury grazing breakfast in bed by Graze For Days or begin with champagne, cake, and sweets made by the Cake Queen. Who says you can't have dessert first? Nothing beats getting ready together for your wedding day! Smooth romantic vibes in a dreamy bathroom decorated with a flower cloud by The House Of Artz.

Amsterdam Is For Lovers
"Amsterdam is the perfect city for lovers, so make sure that you enjoy your surroundings and have a love shoot outside at the canals! You will have amazing pictures!" Advises Enyo Lake, Weddingplanner at Mrs. Lake Weddings, who also planned this shoot. Destination wedding photographer Renate from Wit Photography captured these beautiful images. Don't forget to have a quick snack! A savory Grazing board is always a great idea! Also, with a destination wedding, it's a great idea to invest in a wedding video for all your family and friends back home. Videographers Timo & Kay captured this elopement in a stunning video.
Caterer Ninour created a beautiful bite-sized dinner. Lime crêpes with scallops tartare, Tortelli with prawns, and a Limoncello sauce finished off with a creamy Panna Cotta decorated with edible flowers. These dishes looked beautiful on the tableware of Représentable on a lovely styled table with flowers.
And then, after a whole day of enjoyment, it's finally time for your wedding ceremony. Even if you have no to few guests, a beautiful invitation suite is a great way to inform all of your loved ones about your wedding. We are obsessed with the work from Lin Mc Queen Kalligrafie, who created the stationery set for this shoot. Fitting in the colorful location and with a quirky envelope lining and beautiful calligraphy. The House Of Artz pulled out all the stops and created a backdrop with a fireplace full of flowers. We love this Amsterdam city elopement and hope you do too!
