Hello everyone, My Husband and I are takeing our vacation in Amsterdam in March 2012. We would like to renew our wedding vows since we eloped a couple of years ago during the really bad economy. If anyone has any information on Officiants, photographers,hotels,locations, or any information pertaining to vow renewals, it would be greatly appreciated.

Rachell O'Connell is a photographer I used when my husband and I got married. She comes very highly recommended and speaks English!

This site is in Dutch, but google translate does an alright job in translating it. (click on "zaalverhuur" on the left side) These are "official" locations to use in Amsterdam for weddings or parties.

We got married in the Vondelkerk -- which was beautiful. We decided to have the party however at the Cobra Cafe ( Both are a lovely locations. There are also plenty of other places around as well, of course.

There are many great hotels. The American is one of my favourites. Even if you don't stay here... the brunch on Sat morning is worth a visit. It's in a gorgeous art deco style hall that has remained the same since the hotel was built.

Hope some of this helps!

Hi Bekah!

Congrats on your vow renewal! My brother and his fiance are planning to have a civil ceremony here in the States and would like to do a vow renewal and reception in Amsterdam. I was wondering if you had any recommendations since you were just there.

Best regards,
