A dream wedding at Schiphol!

Never before has the airport had so much love in the air as it did on 7 September 2018. On that sunny Friday, Jocelyne and Pieter said their 'I dos' at the airport in a ceremony organised by Amsterdam Airport Schiphol in cooperation with KLM.

The fairy tale began on Valentine's Day with a contest on Schiphol's Facebook page. Jocelyne and Pieter were the lucky winners chosen from among hundreds of heart-warming entries. Just this once, the airport served as an official wedding location. It was a unique event and a dream come true for the happy newly-weds, who first laid eyes on one another at Schiphol.

The couple met through a dating app while the Latin American Jocelyne was visiting the Netherlands. After her return to Guatemala, the two kept in frequent touch and their connection continued to grow. Jocelyne decided to travel the enormous distance just for Pieter and, in 2015, the two met in person for the first time in the arrival hall.

It was true love, and after countless tearful goodbyes and joyful reunions at Schiphol, the couple felt it was time to make their relationship official by becoming husband and wife. And where better to do so than the spot where they had shared so many loving embraces? Their sun-kissed wedding day turned out to be a series of emotional moments and surprises. The presence of Jocelyne's parents, come all the way from Guatemala, an unforgettable entrance involving a private jet – including a water-shower salute from the Fire Brigade – and of course, the vows recited against the backdrop of the Schiphol skyline. We were on hand to record these magical moments and have turned them into a very special wedding video.Soon, the lovebirds will take off on a fantastic honeymoon. Love is in the air!

Curious about everything that led up to this wedding? Jocelyne and Pieter's road to matrimony can be seen in videos 1 and 2.
