Wedding of King Willem-Alexander of the Netherlands

Happy 15th Wedding Anniversary to King Willem-Alexander and Queen Maxima of the Netherlands, who got married on this day in 2002, when they were just Crown Prince Willem-Alexander and Máxima Zorreguieta. The couple have three daughters, and succeeded to the Dutch throne in 2013. In honour of their anniversary, we will take a look at their lavish wedding at the Beurs van Berlage and Nieuwe Kerk in Amsterdam.

Queen Maxima’s parents couldn’t attend the ceremony, due to her father’s role as a controversial cabinet minister during the Argentinian National Reorganization Process, and her mother choosing not to attend without her husband. In their honour, a beautiful Argentine Tango by Piazzolla was played.
