People Marry People - Malene at Stevns Kommune


Stevns Kommune is so close to Copenhagen but it is also a stunning coastal area with the famous cliffs (Stevns Klint). There is a stunning Unesco Heritage site church which you can have a ceremony at, and have your wedding photos taken at.

This Town Hall is one of our favorites, they have really friendly registrars and can get you married super fast within days of your approval with the Danish Agency of Family Law - Familieretshuset.
