If you’re getting married abroad and looking for a quirky wedding venue then you should definitely take a look at the Old Sea Fort on the island overlooking Copenhagen Harbour.
Unique Wedding Venue in Denmark
Officially called the Trekroner Sofort (which translate as Three Crowns Sea Fortress) it is a sea fort at the entrance to Copenhagen Harbour that was built in 1787. One of three artificial islands built to protect Copenhagen, its rich history has seen it sunk, rebuilt, enhanced, occupied by invaders, and at one time, used as a prison.
Its unique location, in the Harbour of Copenhagen mean it’s only accessible by boat, making arrival to and from your wedding a magical and truly memorable experience in itself.
Unusual Place to Get Married
The team at The Fort are very experienced at delivering bespoke wedding days for their couples. Wedding celebrations can start early as you and your guests can quietly sail through Copenhagen’s canals towards the Fort, soaking in the beautiful views whilst enjoying welcome drinks and snacks.
The team at The Old Fort encourage music at their celebrations, so take your pick, you can be greeted on arrival with a live jazz orchestra, have a cellist play beautifully through your wedding ceremony and party the night away with a DJ well in to the night. It’s not like you have any neighbours to worry about!
At the end of the night, you and your guests will jump onboard for the short sail back to the main land.
And as for food, well anything goes with these guys. Your wedding meal done your way.
When we arrange weddings at The Old Fort, we love it when the weather allows our couples to eat their wedding meal outside on the terrace. The views of the harbour are spectacular, especially as the sun goes down and the harbour is lit up at night, under a canopy of stars.
Though evening meals indoors at The Old Fort feel really cosy with exqiusittely dressed candle lit tables. Add to that white interiors and windows throwing in plenty of natural light and it makes a fantastic backdrop to capture some great wedding photography.
