Ærø wedding photography, Denmark

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]How much do I love being an Ærø wedding photographer? OH SO much.

Let me tell you why.

I saw this show on Danish tv once, that billed Ærø as the danish island of love. I don’t know if that is true, but I do know there are a lot of weddings held on the tiny island south of Fyn, and the location is straight out of a romantic movie.

The islanders are proud of the wedding industry they have created, attracting over 5000 couples to be married every year.  I liken it to Las Vegas, in that it is easy and quick to get your marriage certificate, especially for couples who have different nationalities. Denmark does not have all the red tape found in other countries in Europe.   But the similarities with Las Vegas stop there.  Ærø is more beautiful and slower paced and, of course Danish.

The streets of Ærøskøbing are lined with cobblestones and old half-timbered houses.  It looks like something out of a movie set.   In the summer flowers flash their bright colors and bees zoom happily around.

The beach houses near town stand full of life and their own unique colors making a walk around the area so exciting.

As an American living in Denmark, I am eager to explore as much of the country as possible.  It is all very exotic to me, and I’m always up for a trip.  But when I saw that TV program I thought, “I must shoot a wedding on Ærø!”  As for wedding backdrops go, you can’t point your camera in Ærø without finding an amazing backdrop.


This particular wedding was in October. A time where the island rests after a busy summer season.  Most shops and restaurants are closed in October, but there is still plenty to do and see.

Nadim and Liisi came from Dubai to get married. They are one of those 5000 couples that travel from around the world to say yes on the little island.  Liisi, now a yoga instructor,  left her home country of Estonia at 18 to pursue her modeling career, and Nadim, an entrepreneur,  has lived in 10 different countries.  However in Dubai it is illegal to live together without being married, so a long engagement was out.   When they found Ærø on the internet, they knew that was the place for their wedding.

And as luck, or Denmark would have it, the lovely danish weather did not disappoint. It was windy and rainy.  Liisi was AMAZING in her willingness to tough it out in nothing but a lace dress.  She put on here game face and refused to let a little storm stand in the way of her wedding photos.


Nadim had to be coaxed a little more, because it was cold!!! He didn’t complain too much, because again this island is a fairytale,(even in bad weather,) and he was there with his love.

It was my pleasure that I could be a part of their day.  I think about Ærø all the time and  my heart longs to go back as often as possible.  And I make the easy trip from Copenhagen often– because being an Ærø wedding photographer is fantastic.
