Further to your question kindly note that you can apply for either as if you meet the requirements the visa willbegranted. It all depends on the ease of getting married in the Netherlands.

spouse visa has higher chances?
I meet requirements i think . British with full time job and salary more than 20000£

That is correct as it is easier to prove that you are in a genuine relationship as you have entered into marraige.

From the figure you have provided you do meet the financial requirement of £18,600

If we get married in netherlands, do we need to certify the marriage from uk embassy in netherlands?


No you don't need to as the marraige certificate will be recognised by the UK as long as it been registered in the Netherlands
