Michelle and Chris got engaged in Amsterdam so this is where they chose to get married too. They didn’t want any of the usual traditions like speeches or a first dance, they just wanted to have a colourful party with everyone who meant a lot to to them. As the couple weren’t allowed to legally marry in Holland, they later had a second wedding back home in in Kingston afterwards.
“There was a sweepstake as to where the wedding would be,” began Michelle, “as Chris is really into snowboarding and I’m half Dutch but grew up in Spain. So it was a toss up between Spain, Holland or somewhere with snow! However it turned out Chris really wanted to get married on a boat! We wanted our wedding to be colourful and just did what we wanted. Having been to a few weddings before, we knew what we didn’t want, so it was kind of born from that.”
