rotterdam boathouse wedding at tuin van de vier

Is there anything more romantic than this boathouse wedding in Rotterdam? Imagine getting married on the edge of the stunning Kralingse Bos forest just on the Kralingse Plas (Kralingse Lake). It’s considered one of the most beautiful places in Rotterdam and rightly so. Tuin van de Vier Windstreken (The Garden of the Four Winds) is located in Kralingen. It’s an idyllic small village less than 20 minutes from the Rotterdam station. A quick 30-minute drive if you’re coming from the Netherlands center, the Hague. Or if you’re heading straight from the capital Amsterdam, then it’s an easy 1-hour drive.

This intimate wedding started with the bride and groom getting ready at their home. A small gathering of their families and closest friends, a shared traditional Dutch meal, and a few portraits to highlight the celebration. They had a very relaxed time, a good start to an exciting day.

After a delightful morning, it’s finally time to say I do. As the guests mingled at Tuin van de Vier Windstreken, the bride and groom arrived in style. They boarded a small Rotterdam boat that took them around the boathouse and into their wedding ceremony. Guests watched in awe as they joined them on the beautifully styled jetty. After a few speeches and the exchange of rings and vows, the bride had a little surprise. She sang to her groom while playing the guitar. And the best part of it is that she also composed the song, especially for him.

If you’ve been following along for a while, you’ll know how much I love intimate weddings. And this Rotterdam boathouse wedding is no exception. Nothing can beat the intimacy and comfort of being surrounded by the most important people on your special day. You’ll be more relaxed and there’s less pressure compared to bigger weddings.
