If you're considering tying the knot in Copenhagen during the winter months, you might have a few concerns. But fear not! As a longtime resident of this stunning city, I'm here to share some insights that will ease your worries and help you embrace the magic of a winter wedding in Copenhagen.

  1. More Options, Less Stress: One of the perks of choosing a winter wedding is that there's less competition for vendors like photographers, makeup artists, and venues. With fewer couples vying for their services, you'll have more options to choose from, making the planning process smoother and less stressful.

  2. Perfect Lighting for Photos: Believe it or not, winter provides the ideal lighting conditions for stunning wedding photos. The soft, diffused light on overcast days creates a dreamy atmosphere that's perfect for capturing those romantic moments without harsh shadows or squinting eyes.

  3. Not as Cold as You Think: Contrary to popular belief, Copenhagen's winter weather isn't as bone-chillingly cold as you might imagine. While the brisk wind can be a factor, when it's not blowing, the city takes on a truly magical quality that's perfect for a cozy and intimate wedding celebration.

  4. Embrace the Rain: It's true that Copenhagen sees its fair share of rainy days, but don't let a little rain dampen your spirits. Some of the most beautiful photos are taken during and after a rainfall, adding a touch of romance and drama to your wedding memories.

  5. Dress for Comfort: When it comes to your wedding outfit, comfort is key, especially in winter. If you're opting for a dress, be sure to wear tights to keep warm during outdoor photoshoots. And don't forget to choose comfortable shoes – Copenhagen's cobblestone streets can be a bit challenging to navigate in heels!

  6. Choose Your Photography Package Wisely: When selecting a photography package for your winter wedding, consider your preferences and priorities. While the Basic package may be perfect for a cozy and sweet photoshoot, you might prefer the Standard or Premium package for a more relaxed experience with extra photos and fun.

Additional Tips:

  • Have a transparent umbrella for those rainy days – it'll keep you dry without obstructing your photos. And transparent umbrellas are just perfect as a prop.☔

  • Opt for comfortable shoes that can handle Copenhagen's cobblestone streets, like mid-heel sandals with sturdy soles. Something like this or this or you can find more options in this Google search.
