1.      Denmark elopement and micro -weddings are possible despite the global pandemic.

Let’s tackle this one head on!  The pandemic has caused many couples to have to postpone their wedding plans with many believing that getting married abroad is just not possible in 2021.  But love is not cancelled.  You can still enjoy an elopement or micro wedding in Denmark. 

So, if you thought the pandemic had cancelled your hopes of a wedding in Denmark then think again.  Getting married in Denmark may well be easier this year, than getting married in your own country.

2.      Micro and elopement weddings in Denmark are affordable

 Micro and Elopement weddings in Denmark are uncompromising, beautiful and affordable.  Let’s be honest the biggest cost at traditional weddings is guests.  Each comes with a price tag.  So, it stands to reason elopement and micro weddings are far more wedding budget friendly. 

 Elia and Lisa, a couple from Italy, enjoyed a wedding on the dreamy island of Lolland and enjoyed a country-style wedding full of Nordic charm, booked through our Romanic Location wedding package.  Their wedding cost them just 1,850 Euro’s  and that price included their wedding photographer!

3.      You can have guests at an elopement wedding in Denmark

Around half the number of elopement weddings in Denmark that we have organized have had a small number of guests in attendance.  Many elopers choose to have their very closest friends and family with them to celebrate their marriage.  So, the term elopement wedding can sometimes also mean a micro wedding. 

Darya and Karsten, a couple from Spain, had their micro wedding at the Ancient Hojerup Church on Stevns Klint, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

4.      Elopement and micro-weddings in Denmark allow to create a bespoke wedding from scratch.

 Many people wrongly assume that elopement weddings abroad are just a ceremony but that’s not true.  Increasingly, couples want their whole day to be something memorable, and they want to have it all captured. When it comes to elopement wedding photography, they want more than the ceremony and a couple of portraits afterwards. 

 Couples who choose elopement weddings in Denmark have a curious and adventurous nature so will want to explore our beautiful beaches, historically rich castles and world heritage sites.  As well as celebrate their union in a way that truly reflects their personalities and characters.

Magdalena and Adam, a couple from Germany, chose an elopement wedding in Denmark because they are passionate about Norse culture.  They chose our Land of Legends package and relieved a traditional Nordic wedding.  Land of Legends is an open-air living history museum and after their intimate ceremony on a private beach the couple enjoyed a traditional Viking handfasting ceremony and self-written vows in the old Nordic language, in Scandinavia’s largest King’s Hall.
