2024 Copenhagen Outdoor Weddings

Most couples, when they decide they would like to elope to get married in Copenhagen, make the decision to get married at Copenhagen’s magnificent City Hall. Of course, being at the heart of the city in more ways than one, it’s the natural first choice!

However, what a lot of couples travelling to get married in Copenhagen don’t know is that throughout the year, it’s possible to hold your wedding at a number of alternative locations outside of the City Hall. 

These locations could be the perfect choice for you if you always wanted to get married in Copenhagen but have a desire for something just a little more quirky than the town hall, something that fits perfectly with each of your personalities, interests or particular lifestyle.

There are a number of locations that are offered by Copenhagen City Hall, that are outside of the City Hall on specific dates and times throughout the year. These locations cost just that tiny bit extra than if you wanted to get married at the town hall (€130 for most of the venues and €195 for both the Royal Opera House and the Royal Theatre) and depending on what you love in life, one of these locations could be just what you’re looking for.

Please note, due to the popularity of these unique outdoor weddings there will be limited availability so if you’re interested then we recommend you contact us to get started as soon as possible. 

These ceremonies will be exactly the same as a ceremony held at the town hall, short and very sweet, lasting no longer than 10 minutes. There will also be other couples getting married before you and also after you. 

The cost of the ceremonies varies depending on each location. You can see the specific prices for each on the Copenhagen City Hall website. All Outdoor ceremonies must be booked and paid for directly by you, the couple, via the City Hall website. 

*Note that for ALL ceremonies, if there are only light rain showers forecast then the outdoor ceremonies will go ahead – just make sure you bring your umbrellas! Anything more severe than a light rain shower and the ceremonies will be moved into the City Hall. 

Now, let’s take a little look at each location and what a wedding there entails…
