We are passionate about reuniting hearts, souls and loves, and getting married in Denmark is certainly the best and fastest option for foreign, international and same sec couples that are looking to get married quickly and easily with very few documents.
International borders are opening up to those of us that are vaccinated or have negative COVID tests, so it's time that we can begin to put the past behind us and to focus looking forward onto the future and re-ignite those wedding plans that we put to rest!

It is a beautiful country..
Denmark itself is a stunning country you have almost every landscape that you can wish for apart from mountains the highest point of land in Denmark is only 171metres high! The coastline is amazing and the beaches are straight from a dramatic movie. The country is made up of 406 islands the majority are uninhibited.
Copenhagen, and all the cities are cool, cosmopolitan, environmentally friendly and have historic tales from monuments that lead to great dinner table stories.
The smaller towns are stunning with often multi-coloured buildings still living their ancestory of fishing and crafts whilst remaining 'cool' and cultured.
Denmark still has 18 working lighthouses, these are all very important as except for the island of Bornholm, Denmark is located at the transition between North Sea and Baltic Sea which includes the Skagerrak and Kattegat waters. Dangerous seas for the ships and boats that pass the shoreline frequently.

Granted if you are applying directly the channels of communication may not be a clear, and it is advisable to choose a reliable wedding planner to help you with the process.
The Danes are wonderful..
Everytime we hear from our couples after they have been married they say "it was so beautiful" and "everyone was so lovely and helpful". These comments always make our hearts jump. Getting married is nerve wracking, getting married abroad can be even more nerve wracking. You are going to a foreign country, for a lot of people it's their first time in Denmark, not a lot of couples speak Danish so they will find themselves asking a lot of questions. The Danish are always so helpful, see this blog from "Study in Denmark" that help explains the way of thinking of the Danes. And always think of Hygge.
The History of the country..
Denmarks first writings are in 500ad, that is a long time ago and the history surrounding the country can be seen everywhere. Of course you have the Viking era that started in the 9th Century and can be seen in towns now such as Aarhus, a walled city that has the most incredible Viking museum! In the early 10th Century the Kingdom of Denmark was created and along with that came the castles and amazing sites that are now heritage sites. There is so much history, and can be read about here.
Denmark is situated between Sweden and Germany. Kastrup Airport which is just outside of the city centre is a major hub that accommodates long haul from all over the world and low cost airlines from all over Europe. It welcomes flights for 20 hours in every 24 hour period. In 2019 it hosted 33 million passengers.
