Yana and Kalum - Kronborg castle wedding in Denmark
We always love arranging weddings at Kronborg Castle. Otherwise known as Hamlet’s Castle as it is the castle that William Shakespeare set Hamlet in. Though in his play it is anglicised to ‘Elsinore Castle.’ The place that inspired the writer of the greatest love story ever told just has to be a fantastic place to get married in Denmark.
Yana and Kalum, a lovely couple from Ireland, chose this castle for their magical elopement abroad and booked it through our Castle wedding package. As with all of our weddings we took care of all the boring legal and administrative matters freeing up Yana and Kalum to plan the fun parts of their wedding adventure. And we were there on the day making sure everything ran smoothly.
Kronborg sits in the port city of Hesignor and dates back to 1420. Historically, ships would pass through the narrow straight into the Baltic Sea and pay their tolls at the castle making
Helsingor one of the most important towns in Europe for trade. Its fascinating history has earned it UNESCO World Heritage Site status.

Yana looked so effortlessly pretty in a vintage antique gold dress that perfectly fitted her slender frame and had the most intricate lace detailing. Kalum wore a great petrol blue three-piece suit. The pair of them looked timelessly stylish and totally relaxed at the same time. The perfect look for a relaxed elopement wedding abroad.
Their intimate wedding ceremony was held in one of the castles historic rooms that had lots of period features and they took their vows beside an enormous feature fireplace. It was a wonderfully personal ceremony as Yana and Kalum had written their own vows.
Romantic Kronborg Castle wedding
After the ceremony they celebrated with champagne before embarking on a tour of the castle and the surrounding areas with one of our adventure wedding photographers. Yana and Kalum were so much fun to work with.We loved the fact that they had a dance in the ballroom on the stunning checkerboard floor, had a mini water fight in the well, posed playfully by a traditional cart in the castle courtyard and blew dandelion clocks.
There’s a saying that couples who play together, stay together. So, we’ve no doubt Yana and Kalum have a very long and happy future ahead of them.
