Tuin De Lage Oorsprong: a charming and romantic garden

Another one of my favorites is Tuin de Lage Oorsprong. This beautiful Dutch garden is a popular spot for weddings, and for good reason. It dates back several centuries, and has a rich history that adds to its charm and character.

What I love most about this venue is the gorgeous backdrop it provides for your wedding ceremony. You can choose to have your ceremony in the romantic rose garden, under the shade of centuries-old trees, or inside the venue’s charming greenhouse.

All in all, Tuin de Lage Oorsprong is the ideal location for a casual summer wedding in the Netherlands. It’s a gorgeous outdoor venue with a laid-back, romantic vibe. But even if the weather is not on your side, the cozy indoor space is just as lovely!

If you’re looking for a more traditional and stylish wedding venue in the Netherlands, then Domaine d’Heerstaayen is the spot for you. This gorgeous venue is located in the countryside, and offers a perfect balance of natural beauty, elegance and luxury.

Originally a vineyard, Domaine d’Heerstaayen is home to several outdoor areas, including a romantic orangery, a shaded orchard, and a large open field surrounded by greenery. This makes it the ideal wedding location for a spring or summer ceremony. And in case it starts to rain, you can easily move your ceremony to the cozy and intimate greenhouse, with a view of the colorful gardens.

    We’d love a wedding in the country-side or vineyard. We won’t need a ceremony but just a dinner and dance floor to celebrate through the night. How much would it cost approximately for a guest list of 30-40 people and a wedding mid-august 2024?
