Many foreigners choose to get married in Denmark because of the wide variety of locations. With over 400 islands of various sizes, couples can choose to exchange their vows on a sandy beach, on a rugged clifftop, or further inland where the land is rich and verdant.

The Venues Are Out of This World

There are ample venues to choose from when you plan a wedding in Denmark. You can choose a medieval castle, an ancient church by the sea, a rose garden, a quaint town hall, or a forest. Some couples opt for a remote or rural setting so they can be photographed with their loved one barefoot, surrounded by sweeping countryside.

It’s a Straightforward Process
