Classic and Minimalist Denmark Wedding

2/28/16

At the beginning of August we had the pleasure of spending a couple of days in the south of Denmark to document Lene and Michael’s wedding. This charming couple planned a classic yet minimalistic design and feel for their wedding, Lene is an absolute vision in her bespoke gown from Anne Palland. Moments and the people around us is what matters and we’re thrilled to have been invited to join Mr & Mrs Westergaard in Denmark. One of the strongest memories from this particular wedding is the amount of tears of joy shed during the weekend. So MUCH love! Thank you Lene and Michael for having us photograph this unforgettable occasion.

From the bride:

“It was the summer in 2013. We were on vacation on Manhattan, New York. I love  long walks and my at that time soon to be fiancée loves me – so – in the late afternoon we went for a long walk down the busy streets of Manhattan. The weather was beautiful and we chatted and had fun, however it seemed like the Groom was busy texting his best friend all the time – he had seen him just few hours before, so I did not really understand why he could not just enjoy the moment – with me. 

Well we walked and walked. Did you know that green spots on southern Manhattan mainly are private areas? And some areas on south-east, are not meant for romantic tourist tours? Well now we know – so after walking like what felt for a long long time, Michael stopped at a rustic old white stair right next to a container filled with building materials. He asked me to take a seat at the rusty stair, because he had something he wanted to ask me.

And I guess you know what that question was… Btw. the endless texting done by the groom at this fantastic walk, showed to be the best friend (and later Best Man) asking “So did you ask her yet?” And the Groom answering “Haven’t found the perfect spot…”. Do I need to say that I forgave him for that lack of attention towards me at our walk?

Now, the wedding… We simply cannot choose a favourite moment from our wedding day, it was all those lovely moments! Everything was amazing and so much more than we could ever have imagined. But the church ceremony was something that is very special in both of our hearts. One surprise was when we saw the bagpipe musician after the ceremony. So unexpected but perfectly informal after an emotional ceremony and to accompany our getaway scene in a Smart! Our best tips to couples planning their wedding, make a plan, toss it away and let go! But actually to you brides out there – I got a fantastic tip by our Priest. Normally I get very emotional – and yes tears could possibly be involved in the ceremony! I mentally prepared the entire ceremony from waiting for the doors to open, walking down the aisle, the ceremony and the walk out. And the best part of that – my make-up had no tear-marks afterwards!”

Ceremony Venue: Notmark Kirke // Reception Venue & Catering: Fakkelgaarden, Krusaa, Denmark // Wedding Dress: Anne Palland // Bride’s Shoes: Shoes of Prey  // Hair & Make-Up: Mick Bengtsson // Groom’s attire: Suit by Hugo Boss & tuxedo by Eduard Dressler // Groom’s Shoes: Lloyd // Stationery & Favours: The Bride // Ceremony soloist: Thomas Eje // Entertainment: Herbert Boersma & Kirstine Elise Pedersen  // Jewellery & Accessories: The Bride; I was lucky to borrow the bracelet that had been my grandmothers which she gave my mom before she died and the lovely earrings was lent to me by one of my dear friends. The Groom; The cufflinks was inherited by the groom’s father and brought to Denmark from Greenland by his grandfather many years ago.

    […] I början av augusti hade vi nöjet att tillbringa ett par dagar i södra Danmark för att dokumentera Lene och Michael bröllop. Detta super charmiga par hade ett klassisk bröllop med minimalistisk design.

För att se hela historien, välkomna till vår blogg. […]
