It’s so great for couples planning their wedding in Denmark to know that there are many wonderful and totally unique locations available to them.

Most couples want to have their wedding in one of Denmark’s beautiful town halls (of which there are many)! But we know there are a small number of couples who are interested in what is available outside the town hall – maybe you’re bringing a lot of guests, maybe you want to make your day a bit more of a full day experience or maybe you just want something a little bit different?!

If you’re hoping to have your wedding outside the town hall, and are looking for something that is a little bit out of the ordinary, then take a look at our gorgeous suggestions for the top 15 wedding venues in Copenhagen and Denmark!

We have put together for you a variety of options, suitable for those wanting a smaller elopement, those planning for the much larger wedding, and everything in between. 😃

Please do be aware that we do not recommend you book any venue in Denmark until you have spoken with a professional, such as a wedding agency or a wedding planner. 

You will first need to obtain your approval to get married in Denmark from the Agency of Family Law – without this you will not be able to get married in Denmark. 

You must then hire a registrar to come and perform your ceremony, so checking their availability before you confirm a booking with any external venue is of paramount importance.

Setting: Set high up in a rooftop garden, this calm and green oasis is a gorgeous choice for those couples who love their garden, love being outdoors and yet love city life. This small and unassuming rooftop is home to the most gorgeous vegetable garden, beautiful flowers in bloom, and sweet greenhouse, which is available to hire for small events, including weddings.

Location: Located a little north of the centre, this is conveniently located for those wanting something a little different, a wedding in Copenhagen, surrounded by the usual city hustle & bustle and easy access to the city. 

Capacity: This location would suit only those having a smaller elopement with the greenhouse seating only 25 people in total (including the couple). 

It is possible to have the wedding outside (for standing ceremonies only), on the rooftop amongst the plants and the flowers. Smaller weddings of course can take place inside the greenhouse also.

  • Welcome drink
  •  6-course menu

Conditions: Østergro’s busiest seasons are from the beginning of July to the end of September for weddings and other private events, and then again in November and December for Christmas lunches. 

For couples looking to have their wedding during the summer months it is recommended to reach out to the venue as early as 14 months before the requested date. However, reaching closer to the wedding date than 14 months is fine too as it does totally depend on the availability at any given time.

For example, there are at time of writing, a few spring weddings and confirmation parties booked in the calendar for 2024 but July and August still have good availability.
