Laura and Frazer met in Southhampten, England while working and studying. They lived in London for a time and then Frazer was offered a job in Copenhagen. After a single visit on a sunny day, they decided to make the big move and lived happily there for 3 years. After moving back to the UK they missed Copenhagen so much, in 2011 they decided to move back and also have their wedding in copenhagen.
We went to Iceland this year for Easter. Frazer proposed on Good Friday at the most beautiful place I have ever been to. It was a hotel in the complete wilderness which took us 3 hours to drive to Hotel Budir. We had a lovely diner at the hotel, then Frazer said let’s go and watch the sunset. As we were standing in the lava field with the ocean behind us and the sun setting over the glacier in front he got down on one knee. Afterwards a wild seal came out of the sea in front of us and then that night we were lucky enough to watch the northern lights. It couldn’t have been more perfect. The ring fitted first time and is gorgeous. Frazer choose my engagement ring himself from the wonderful Maya Bjørnsten. As Frazer said at the proposal, the rough beauty of the diamond reflects the raw beauty of Iceland.
Even though the couple is English, they love Copenhagen and their friends there so much that they also decided Getting Married in Copenhagen. They chose Hotel Nimb as a wedding venue. They felt it was a little bit special and suited them well. They embraced Tivoli and took all their guests out there and made it a part of their wonderful day.
Our wedding in Copenhagen reflected a mixture of Danish and English traditions. Our English family couldn’t believe how much fun the Danish wedding traditions were. We have been together for a long time as a couple, so we wanted our wedding day to mostly be about friends and family being all together in the one place and having fun. In reality it was beyond all our expectations and more than we could have hoped for. It was quite a party!
