Classic and Minimalist Denmark Wedding

Minimalistic Wedding In Denmark

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.

The moments and the people around us are 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 number 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:

Our proposal
“It was the summer of 2013. We were on vacation in Manhattan, New York. I love long walks and my 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. It seemed like the Groom was busy texting his best friend all the time. He had seen him a few hours before, so I did not understand why he could not enjoy the moment with me.
 
We walked and walked. Did you know that green spots in south Manhattan are private areas? And some areas in the south-east, are not meant for romantic tourists. Well, now we know, haha. After walking like what felt for a long time, Michael stopped at a rustic old white staircase. 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. By the way, that endless texting done by the groom, was from his 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?
 
The Wedding
Now, the wedding… We cannot choose a favorite 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 extraordinary in both our hearts. One surprise was when we saw the bagpipe musician after the service. So unexpected! But informal after an emotional ceremony and for our getaway car we loved our Smart car!
 
Best Tips For Planning Brides
Our best tips to couples planning their wedding, make a real plan! Then toss it away and let go! But actually to all you brides out there – I got a fantastic tip by our Priest. I usually get very emotional – and yes, tears could be involved in the ceremony! I mentally prepared the entire service. From waiting for the doors to open, walking down the aisle, the service, and the walkout. And the best part of it – my make-up had no tear-marks afterward!”

  1. […] 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. Lene var ett bombnedslag i sin skräddarsydda klänning från Anne Palland. Möten och människor runt omkring oss är det viktiga och vi är stolta över att ha fått blivit inbjudna till att fotografera Lene och Michaels bröllop. För att se hela historien, välkomna till vår blogg. […]
