Petra & Michael came to Denmark from Germany, along with their daughter, Maya, for a truly unique Viking-themed wedding adventure. The family wanted something that was both intimate and unusual, something memorable, and something that would really make their wedding special. Also, they wanted to involve their daughter in the process, so what better than a Scandinavian wedding in Denmark?

The fresh green grass, sunshine and pretty clouds with grazing sheep exuded a peaceful country vibe. The open-air museum is a popular choice for an outdoor wedding venue among couples that want to feel like they are traveling back in time and history.

The family booked the Land of Legends wedding package and chose the Trelleborg Viking Village for their adventurous Viking-themed wedding. The family has a tour guide, learned a lot about Viking culture through some of the museum displays and then proceeded to a chamber room where the ceremony would begin.

The atmosphere of the wedding was very intimate, as the room was surrounded by candles and there was even a fire in the center. The feelings in the air were very deep and personal, but also curious and interested in the process as soon the Scandinavian wedding would start and the handfasting ceremony would follow.
