Their wedding captured by Tine Hvolby is a perfect example of a beautiful destination wedding gay couples can achieve in Denmark. They had an amazing time and on the day, everything came together and was perfect, they did however, regret not choosing a wedding planner …
"We didn’t have a wedding a coordinator which I came to regret in the days leading up to the wedding. The reason for this is that I really needed someone professional to pull all the strings and details together from the Denmark end whilst I was planning and organising from the other side of the world. The ten days we had in Denmark before the wedding was barely enough time to finalise the details. We underestimated the amount of work we had to do even though I am a caterers running large events all the time."
