Summer Wedding in Denmark 2023

If you are wanting to get married in Denmark in the Summer you will find that June, July and August are the nicest weather months, with the longest days and the most spectacular light and if you choose outside of School holidays they are quieter, cheaper and you get the fun without the crowds. 

Of course Summer is wedding season and in the recent years is has been more than busy, so we will always advise that you get in touch, get your personalised documents list and get everything prepared and arranged as far in advance as possible.  We can make the application 4 months before the ceremony date, this means that we can get everything booked and confirmed, you can book your travel and hotel, before the prices get too high.

Let's start with the capital Copenhagen, Summer in any capital City is wonderful and you will not be disappointed with Copenhagen.  

Copenhagen is split into many areas and districts, you can read more about them here.  Nyhaven Copenhagen is glorious and colourful in Summer!

A trip to Copenhagen would not be complete without a visit to Tivoli Gardens. It is the second oldest amusement park and pleasure gardens in the world (the actual oldest is also in Denmark around 10km away!). The fountains and rides are beautiful, with light shows after dark and an amazing food court its worth a visit no matter your age! Scattered throughout the park there are also local craftsmen selling wares.

Then of course as around in all capital cities there is so much else to see and visit. Monuments, museums, parks and gardens there is literally something for everyone.

The Danes are well known for their love of food, and in Copenhagen there is no shortage of good places to eat regardless of your budget, tastes and style there is something for everyone.  One place that you can ,not miss is Torvehallern Food Market, this place is amazing and in the Summer you can take your food and sit on some of the wonderful tables, soaking up the atmosphere of the city of food.

Outside of Copenhagen then there are many other locations and venues for your wedding.

Let's start with the island weddings.

The amazing island of Aero

Aero has the nickname the island of love, and this is because it is a haven for couples marrying throughout the year.

If you like Jazz and also the Beach, you could combine this with your wedding and go to the Aerø jazz festival at the end of July! Aerø is a favourite location for International couples looking to get married in Denmark, and also a personal favourite of Marry Abroad Simply, as its a gorgeous Danish Island, you can get married very quickly after approval, and the locals are so nice!

The Island of Bonholm

Bornholm is a place where the Danish like to go on holiday, and we all know that if the locals go there then it must be good. It is stunning and a short flight from Copenhagen you will land on this spectacular island.  A perfect place to mix elopement and a honeymoon.

And then of course when we think of Denmark we think of lots of history and Scandinavian culture and we certainly have a lot of town halls in some of the most beautiful cities in Denmark.

Closer to Copenhagen there is the wonderful Helsingor, this is on the coast and is the at the closest point to our Scandinavian sister country Sweden you can see Sweden from the waters edge.  Also Helsingor is the home to one of the most dramatic castles Krongborg Castle, the ceremony room is stunning, on a recent visit myself and Leanne gasped when we entered the ceremony room.  The room is surrounded by the most beautiful stain glass windows.  This is a mere 30 minute train ride out of Copenhagen so easy to get to and from in the same day.

Closer to the German border there is the wonderful town hall of Ribe, this is in fact the oldest town hall in Denmark.  The town of Ribe is stunning and is steeped in history.
