How to get married on the Danish West Coast


Denmark is a beautiful country that offers many options for couples looking to get married. Whether you’re looking to get married quickly and simply or you want to celebrate your love and connection with a more unique and personalised ceremony, there is something for everyone.

Organise everything yourself

If you’re looking to get married quickly and simply, one of the best options is to contact one of the registry offices in the area. In Esbjerg, Varde, Fanø and Ribe, you can contact the local registry office. Either the municipality or the state administration will be examining, if the applicants meet the requirements for a marriage in Denmark (more info). Once your application is approved, you will be provided with a date for your wedding. This is a great option for couples who want to get married without a lot of fuss and without a big ceremony. You will need as a minimum a certificate of marital status and be at least 18 years old.

Get help with everything

Another option for couples getting married in Denmark is to contact a wedding agency. One of the best options is Leif & Marlene from Danish West Coast Weddings. They offer different packages that cater to your needs and preferences. Whether you’re looking for a beautiful beach wedding in the dunes or getting married on the top of the lighthouse in Blåvand, they have a package that will suit your needs. Their packages include everything you need, including flowers, setup of the ceremony site, and they can even help you find a hairdresser. This is a great option for couples who want to celebrate their love and connection with a more unique and personalised ceremony.

Malene and Leif are a dynamic duo who have been organising weddings for years. As a photographer, I have had the honour of capturing many of these special moments and each ceremony has been truly unique.

From the grand and elaborate to the intimate and personal, these two know how to put together a wedding that is tailored to the couple’s individual tastes and personalities. They pay attention to every detail, from the decoration to the music, and their goal is always to make the day as special as possible for the happy couple.

I’ve had the pleasure of seeing firsthand how Malene and Leif work their magic, and it’s truly a sight to behold. They have a way of bringing out the best in everyone, from the couple to the guests, and the result is always a beautiful and joyous celebration.

One of the things that sets Malene and Leif apart is their ability to create a warm and welcoming atmosphere for everyone. They understand that a wedding is not just about the couple, but about the families and friends who are there to celebrate with them. They go out of their way to make sure that everyone feels included and that they are having a good time on the Danish West Coast.

As a photographer, I feel lucky to be a part of these special events. The memories that Malene and Leif help create will be cherished for a lifetime. If you’re planning a wedding, I highly recommend hiring these two to help you make it unforgettable.

No matter which option you choose, getting married in Denmark is a beautiful and memorable experience. The country’s picturesque landscapes, charming villages, and historic castles make for the perfect backdrop for your special day. Whether you’re looking for a simple registry office wedding or a more elaborate beach wedding, the Danish West Coast has something for everyone.
