True Love – Senior Wedding of Cami and Jens

Updated: Sep 19, 2021

True love has no limits and cannot be extinguished by age or time. Cami and Jens are proof of that! It was an honour to arrange their senior wedding in Denmark at Peter Hansen’s Have (Botanical Garden) on the Danish Island of Lolland. Take a look at amazing images of Cami and Jens' wedding adventure in Denmark!

This darling pair met and dated 39 years ago before life took them in different directions. However, they stayed in touch through the years via snail mail, long distance calls, and eMail. They met up whenever Cami visited Europe before the connection took a sudden stop in 2006. However, as fate would have it, Cami flew to Frankfurt in October 2019 for a 3-month R&R at the invitation of her once girlfriend from 43 years ago. She and Jens met up for a concert, both curious of how it would turn out after 13 years of radio silence. Much to their surprise, it was just like yesterday and they picked up right where they left off.

With Cami now 68 years old and Jens now 70 (I know, they both look so much younger!), they decided to get married in Denmark on Jens’ 70th birthday!

These guys wanted a romantic elopement wedding somewhere colorful, so, with our wedding planning expertise, we recommended the Peter Hansen’s Have - a little botanical garden on the beautiful Danish Island of Lolland and one of Northern Europe’s largest privately owned plant collections. The owner of the gardens was inspired by the famous England gardens, and created an oasis of beautiful flowers, trees, lawns, fountains and lakes with wooden and stone bridges, and a traditional pavilion.

Cami looked radiant in her wedding dress and stunning smile. Her personality is so energetic and fun. She has the endearing mannerisms of a girl. Jens looked very classy in his dark suit and tie. His character is calm and wise, with a wonderful sense of humour. They really make the perfect sweet pair.

The details of the elopement wedding in Denmark were carefully thought out by Cami and Jens. Cami wore a beautiful wrist garland of flowers to match her bouquet. And they

ordered matching rings, each with one half of a heart on it so that when they put them

together, they made a full heart. Their names are engraved in each others' rings and were kept in a gorgeous bespoke inscribed wooden ring box.

I loved the images our adventure photographer got of Cami and Jens by the garden’s pavilion. Cami and Jens looked fantastic, and I think the images really captured their playful nature and the tenderness with which they love one another. Love was truly in the air!

Their wonderfully personal wedding ceremony included Cami and Jens’ favourite pieces of music and was live streamed to their friends and family in Germany, Spain, Norway, USA, New Zealand, and the Philippines.

Family and friends cheered on and screamed their congratulations as the ceremony concluded and joined in the toasts of celebration with Cami and Jens enjoying champagne and wedding cake amongst the colourful backdrop of trees and flowers.

Unlike Jens, who was marrying for the first time, Cami was already married before and

widowed, too, and was adamant at first. But love is stronger and this time she said it would be her last wedding and we believe her. These two have so much fun we just can’t imagine they’ll ever want to part again. It sounds like destiny had it all figured out, bringing them

together after all other relationships and years in between and even across continents. Kismet is real after all!

Congratulations Cami and Jens for getting married and creating such a magical Danish elopement wedding for yourselves! It was a joy to help plan your amazing wedding adventure and to spend time with you both.
