Sid and Kat Maderazo’s 10th Wedding Anniversary Bliss in Queenstown
01 Oct 2018STORIESBY SweetEscape

This isn't just another awe-inspiring TV advertisement set in a scenic location somewhere in an urban paradise. This is a celebration of love and an honoring to a lifelong commitment years of two people bound by trust, partnership, and love.

Early this 2018, Sid, and Kat Maderazo, together with their children, Zen, Sky, and Ocean flew to New Zealand to celebrate the couple's 10th wedding anniversary.

When they got married in 2008, unlike the usual bride who'd prefer to look her best in a custom-made gown embellished with crystals, gems, and all, Kat decided to wear a Php7,000 wedding gown from Kamuning market in Manila. Yup, she's that simple and practical. But every woman certainly deserves the best especially on occasions such as that of a wedding anniversary, so Sid decided to surprise her by coordinating with top fashion designer, Francis Libiran, and his business partner, Arsi Baltazar. Just as how fate magically works, the gown that Kat had chosen was actually a piece that Francis Libiran designed while he was in New Zealand!

For 3 weeks, the Maderazos set off in a camper van adventure where they traversed 2500 kilometers, visiting one panoramic destination to another. From Kerr Bay Holiday Park and Shantytown, Greymouth, to Hotikita and Wanaka, it was not only an Instagram-worthy adventure, but a special memory meant to be kept forever.

The couple's renewal of vows ceremony took place in a venue by Moke Lake, a really picturesque location off the beaten track. As an intimate celebration, aside from their relatives, also present were his Brap Pack brothers, Drew Arellano and Javy Olives together with their families.

Though Queenstown is known for heart-racing activities such as alpine heli-skiing and zip-lining, theirs was an adventure one for the books. The view from Moke Lake alone where they shot their post-wedding photos is like a view straight out of a postcard! As a TV commercial director, Sid knew things out so well.

On occasions when all you want to do is have fun, selfies sure wouldn't be able to justify how beautiful a setting is or how real emotions are, so it's a great idea to have a photographer to document those for you, just as how Sid and Kat trusted SweetEscape to do so.

As every parent would tell you, travelling with kids can be extremely tough!

Don't worry, we're here for you! Here's a list of activities you and your kids can do together during your spring travel to Amsterdam, and rest assured, you will find these activities equally exciting!

The best way to experience the wonders of the canals of Amsterdam is by hopping on a boat and taking a boat tour. The beautiful and unique canal houses along the canals makes great setting for your family photo session. Your kids can also learn about the Netherlands' famous canals system from the guides!

2. Take A Bike (with Bakfiets) to Vondelpark

by Dennis + Dewi for SweetEscape in Amsterdam

A very Dutch way to get around Amsterdam is on bakfiets, a large bucket attached to the front of a bike, which your kids will definitely love! Let your kids to sit safely inside the bakfiets and cycle through Amsterdam's numerous bike-lanes to many interesting spots in and around the city, including Vondelpark, the largest park of the city with lots to offer for kids such as The Melkhuis, Kinderkookcafe (where children can cook little dishes while you enjoy a cup of coffee), and a lovely paddling pool. Check out these other great spots for cycling too!

3. Visit Museums

by Danny for SweetEscape in Amsterdam

The Netherlands produces some famous painters throughout history, and you can start to spark some creativity in your kids by taking them to some of these famous museum. The Van Gogh Museum is pleasantly light and modern, with paintings that are very colourful and accessible to children. The 17th Century Rembrandt House is also very interesting, giving us a glimpse of how Rembrandt (and other well-to-do Amsterdam inhabitants) lived in the ‘Golden Age’. Start nurturing the future artist in them!

4. Eating Pancakes at Nine Streets

by Roos for SweetEscape in Amsterdam

The Nine Streets is another interesting place to visit. These nine little streets are filled with small and unique shops, ranging from fashion boutiques, to art stores, and even a toothbrush shop! One of the best places to take your kids to in the Nine Streets is Pancakes Amsterdam Negen Straatjes, a pancake shop that offers a world-wide variety of pancakes, including Dutch's famous pannekoek!

5. King's Day!

by Danny for SweetEscape in Amsterdam

Unique to Spring, The King's Day is a festival to celebrate the birthday King Willem-Alexander, the current ruling monarch, and is held every April 27th. Cycle past the spectacle with your kids on the Bakfiets (see number 2!) and let them take it the explosion of bright orange colours throughout the city, or take part in a plethora of activities and fun games in the many carnivals and pop-up markets around Amsterdam and many other cities!
