Romantic Venice of the North Wedding Inspiration Shoot by Alexandra Vonk Photography

We’re thrilled to be sharing a stunning wedding inspiration shoot from Alexandra Vonk  Photography! The styled shoot is set in Amsterdam, also known as The Venice of the North due to the cities similarities to Venice and the many canals, like the Amstel River.  To give us more insight into this romantic wedding inspiration shoot, we welcome wedding planner Mirjam Shah of Wedding Guru! Enjoy!

“I got to know Tirza, a mom of a classmate and friend of my son, and found out that she had a gondola. I couldn’t believe my luck. The only gondola in Amsterdam, built by Tirza with her own two hands. From that moment on I was obsessed with the idea of planning an inspirational shoot with the gondola in the lead role. The concept for the styled shoot, Venice of the North, was born.

Fitting to this theme was the magnificent 5* luxury Hotel De l’Europe located on the Amstel river. Some rooms have amazing views on ‘The Canal Grande’ of Amsterdam (Amstel River) and the munttower. The tower was originally part of the Regulierspoort, one of the main gates in Amsterdam medieval’s city wall. Another great asset of the hotel, amongst many others, is the lovely terrace where you can enjoy lunch or a drink whenever spring is in the air or have dinner  and cocktails on a hot summer night. There is also place for the gondola or a boat to anchor.

Dramatic images came to mind, so the colour palette had to be rich and colourful with red, touches of gold and lots and lots of beautiful flowers. Florist Keven Muller just knew exactly what to do with this and show cased an abundance of flowers. Wedding stylist Annette brought her own amazing antique crockery set and made sure that all the little details, the luxurious stationery of Cardwise, the table and ceremony set-up would all match the mood-board made by Wedding Guru. Marianne Roza did a luscious make-up with smokey-eyes and ponytail. And Posh Tea Time made a scrumptious sweet table which was a feast for the eyes, as well as the stomach. California born and raised Alison, with her Italian looks, and Dutch Martin were the models. They got to know each other in Amsterdam, so Alison made the move from sunny California to Holland to live with her Dutchie. And only a month before this shoot they got officially married, in Amsterdam, of course.”
