Can we have a more romantic wedding that is not in a town hall?
Yes! Although the town hall in Copenhagen is cosy and romantic, some couples would prefer something different and unique. Our aim is to offer services whereby we deal with the documentation and organise the ceremony itself for you outside of the town hall, and then you have full control over how you want to build your event around it, all the while, utilising our constant support, advice and recommendations. This way, our ceremonies outside the Town Hall can work for many different budget ranges. It’s often more affordable as full wedding planner services are not required.
Couples who want a romantic, yet, low key and stress free wedding day, might for example choose our Botanical Garden’s ceremony and then have an intimate meal for two afterwards. Another couple, may wish to organise a reception and party afterwards, with all the frills but would like to save money in the process by having us take care of the paperwork and legal ceremony and then taking care of the finer details themselves. With each option, our service is the perfect solution!
