Getting Married in Denmark

Imelda & Jhony Getting Married in Denmark

Weddings are the most special occasions of our lives and increasingly couples are choosing wedding celebrations that are truly personal and unique to them. Romantic adventures that ditch the traditional, the obligations, and the expectations of others. And one of the things that Denmark does very well, is romantic wedding adventures.


Our authorities in Denmark believe that there should be no borders and no restrictions when it comes to love. And that all couples who wish to marry and legally can, should be allowed to get married in Denmark regardless of their religion, nationality and gender. It is this approach that has made Denmark one of the easiest countries in the world to get married in. What can we say, Danes are old-fashioned romantics at heart!


This is where we at Nordic Adventure Weddings come in. We help you get married in Denmark and can arrange weddings in fairytale castles, on remote beaches, in traditional timber clad town halls, in pretty clifftop chapels, at UNESCO world heritage sites, on eco-friendly farms, in romantic rose gardens, in hidden forests, on boats on the Baltic Sea, in a city center, or by serene lakes and mountains. Your wedding may be small but we encourage you to dream big when it comes to your wedding location.


We offer 10 wildly different wedding packages that you can choose from, or mix and match to create your own bespoke adventure. And as Denmark is so small, you’ll get the chance to experience everything our little country has to offer.
