Due to COVID, weddings of many couples have been put on pause. Things are now coming back to normal in many countries and these countries have opened their borders for foreign visitors. One of the countries that let foreign visitors visit the country is Denmark.
Other than COVID, cross nationality marriage is often a complicated process in many countries. There is a whole lot of paperwork and legal formalities to take care of and still, in many cases, the couple does not get the right to get married legally. Denmark is one of those few countries that have the most flexible wedding laws. This is the reason many foreign couples visit to get married in Denmark.
We are going to share a story of a real wedding that we organized for a cross nationality couple. The couple was struggling to have a civil marriage ceremony because of cross nationality wedding related challenges and never-ending COVID waves.
Ted is from the USA and Anke is from Germany. The couple deeply in love was ready to tie knots. However, COVID hit put things on hold for the couple. The couples explored some other alternatives to get married, but because of cross nationality, there were multiple challenges that the couple had to face.
Luckily, Ted and Anke get to know about Elsinore Wedding and its destination wedding services for foreign couples in Denmark. They contacted Elsinore Wedding and showed interest to get married in Denmark. The destination wedding planners of Elsinore Wedding guided the couple through the whole process of getting a date to get married in Denmark, travelling to Elsinore city, etc. Elsinore Wedding also took care of the legal aspects and paperwork for the couple.
The cross nationality couple travelled to Elsinore, a beautiful city in Denmark to take vows. Ted and Anke chose Elsinore City Hall to tie knots. As per the destined date and time, the couple got married in a civil marriage ceremony at Elsinore, Denmark and also received a legal marriage certificate from the Danish Government.
The destination wedding planners from Elsinore Wedding guided the couple through the Elsinore city, which is also known as Helsingør and took pictures of the couple in the city. The Elsinore Wedding team also legalized the wedding certificate with the Apostille process for the couple to use that wedding certificate in the USA.
Ted and Anke were extremely happy with the destination wedding services offered by Elsinore Wedding and left an overwhelming testimonial, which is as below:
“We can’t think of a better way to get married. Like so many couples, COVID sidelined us for quite a while. To be honest, when it looked like COVID would never end we explored other options but since I am a US citizen and she a German citizen and all the travel restrictions everything was complicated no matter how or where we tried to do it. Through it all, Lisbeth was patient and helpful and it was Lisbeth and Denmark that came through for us. Lisbeth and Peter from Elsinore Wedding and Britta who was the magistrate that performed the ceremony were all wonderful. We took video of the ceremony and Lisbeth walked all over Helsignor with us taking pictures with our phones. Helsignor and Denmark in general is a beautiful place with so much to see. We couldn’t have had a better experience.” – Ted and Anke (A couple from the USA and Germany).
