Amsterdam invites tourists to ‘marry’ a local for a day

Fake weddings aim to improve relations between residents and visitors and include a brief ‘honeymoon’ to explore the city’s less popular sights

I’m wearing a vintage bridal gown with a long train, and my groom, Julian du Perron (30), is in a top hat. He’s all smiles, but I’m a little nervous, which is unsurprising because we’ve only just met.

Eventually, I relax into it. After all, the wedding is as fake as the flowers that frame the arch above us, and our marriage is for just one day.
