Where will I marry?

You will marry in the town hall in Stor Heddinge.  It is more of an office style town hall, but the registrars and staff are absolutely lovely,  and the ceremony room is light and airy often with flowers and a contemporary feel. You can also take your dog if you wish which makes it a really popular venue for those wishing to take along furry friends!

The History & Sights of the Area?

Stevns is a relatively well know Kommune in Denmark.  It became famous in the 14th Century by becoming a merchants town.  When the Saint Katherina Church was built in the 13th Century the town of Stor Heddinge became well known as it attracted visitors from all over the area.

Stevns is also well known for the wonderful white cliffs that are a popular tourist attraction, they are beautiful and  are known as Stevns Klint. In addition there is a UNESCO Heritage site  old church "Hojerup" (our feature picture!) that is still open for visitors today that partially collapsed over the cliffs in 1928 due to erosion.  It is stunning and a wonderful backdrop for any wedding photograph.  It was built by a sailor that almost drowned off the coast and he promised to build a chapel in the spot if he survived.

Stevns is also home to the wonderful lighthouse that, at 27 metres high towers above the cliffs.  Built in 1878 from the chalk stone in the cliffs.

There are lots of restaurants in Stor Heddingesomething for everyone.  Our personal favourite is MALT, this is a traditional, contemporary Danish restaurant that always has such a great atmosphere!

For hotels, there are several hotels in Stor Heddinge and lots in the surrounding area so certainly something for everyone, with all budgets, styles and needs. We particularly love this one - Rødvig Kro & Badehotel  they are right on the coast, the Town Hall is just 1 train stop away (walk from train to destination at both ends!), they also have a wedding package so you can have your wedding held there, and if you have many guests they will organise a set menu and also a sit down meal if you wish.
