Getting Married in December is very popular, for many reasons!
Summer, is usually busy, for all locations where destination weddings are popular, there are lots of tourists, it can be really hot, and travelling to an from locations can be expensive.
So you could flip the wedding norm and marry in the Winter... So what can we tell you about December weddings...
Before we start, please can we just highlight that Denmark is a nordic country, in December it is cold, more than likely it will rain, there is every chance that it can snow. It is dark almost all day, with the sun rising late and setting early daylight hours are limited so when choosing your wedding time and your photographer please remember this.
However all these things can bring us to the most sensational wedding pictures and memories. Remember the Danish word 'Hygge' this is a word for being cosy, well in Denmark this is almost a sport, not just for people dressing, but for bars and restaurants and hotels alike, they excel in making things cosy. Be it roaring fires, big warm blankets, so you can still sit outside on the terrace, heat lamps. Big steaming frothy hot chocolates, mulled wine, hearty food that you can have either before or after you take a look around the Christmas markets, ice skate in the open air or simply walk through the towns and cities all 'hygged up'!
It doesn't matter where you decide to marry (take a look at our map here for your options) you can be sure that the scenery will melt your heart and the people will win your heart and even though you are marrying the love of your life and your heart will get bigger, you will, for sure leave a tiny bit of your heart in Denmark! And that's what we love, people coming back over and over and over to get some more Hygge!
Christmas in Copenhagen is magical with Tivoli being just stunning, having "Gløgg" or "Gluwein" and snuggling up to your soul mate - heaven!
December in Gibraltar
On the complete opposite end of the spectrum, Gibraltar also has so much to offer in December, it is hot! But not as hot as it is in the Summer (see my blog here for when I visited in August, I mention the heat quite a lot!). The sun is generally out every day it is lovely and warm in the afternoon, warm enough to see the sights with only a t-shirt and have amazing lighting for some wonderful photographs. Please see the average weather here, a lovely 18degrees, how perfect it that!
You can got to the beach, have lunch outside in the wonderful Catalan Bay, or explore the rock or have a coffee on casemates square out of the blazing Spanish sunshine.
So if its a sunshine wedding that you want but don't want the business or the heat of the Summer, Gibraltar is a perfect choice!
Please remember for both of these locations - demand is high! The dates do get booked up very quickly and we hate it when our couples are disappointed. Even in the Summer couples are looking at their amazing winter wedding and they are booking the dates!
If you want a winter wedding then please let us know, we can get your date booked in so you have something to look forward to at the end of the year, the diaries are open and we are making appointments, don't miss out!
