Ciara & Rupert, Christmas Winter Wedding, Amsterdam

We ended 2019 with a beautiful and intimate Christmas wedding, then started 2020 with a great New Years Eve Party! Who knew a winter wedding could feel so warm?

Ciara and Rupert are Irish expats, living in Amsterdam, so when they decided the get married, it was a nice opportunity to show their family and friends all that our beautiful city has to offer during the winter.

They wanted to have a Catholic Church Ceremony and found Father Ben who married them in the stunning Krijtberg Church; hidden in the busy city center of Amsterdam. The Church was beautifully decorated with Christmas trees full of sparkling lights, lots of greenery, and red flowers. The Church walls are adorned with high stained glass windows, which shined throughout the mass giving a magical feelings and colorful atmosphere.

The whole wedding day had a historical, traditional, elegant and warm atmosphere; from the preparations in Pulitzer Hotel, until the dinner and party in the historical West Indisch Huis.

Did you know that The West Indies House is the former headquarters of the West Indies Company (WIC) in Amsterdam? In this building the commanders of the WIC ordered the construction of a fort on the island of Manhattan in 1625, the first impetus for what would become the metropolis New York (which was once named New Amsterdam).

The party went on ‘til late in the evening, and the next day the whole group started partying again, because it was New Years Eve, of course! The lovely wine restaurant Divino, in the Jordaan area, opened it’s doors for Ciara and Ruperts guests. 2020 started excellent food, the best wines, and lots of music. We couldn’t hope for a better start of this new year!
