Love is love. That’s why I get truly excited when couples reach out to me be their same sex wedding photographer in Copenhagen. I come from the USA and 10 years ago I photographed my first same-sex marriage. It was in the USA and it was illegal. Times fortunately have changed, and Denmark makes it easy to get married regardless of sex, or citizenship. Same sex marriage in Denmark has been legal for at least the last 31 years. According to the City of Copenhagen, the world’s first registered partnership was on 1October 1989, at Copenhagen City Hall. In 2010, gay couples were given the opportunity to adopt on an equal footing with heterosexual couples. And in 2012, the first gay couple was married in the church.
Denmark remains a progressive country that welcomes people to get married without prejudice. Many couples choose to travel from abroad to Copenhagen because it is easier to get married here than in their home countries.
Liz and Megan got married at Copenhagen City Hall, on a fresh winter day. Liz came from England and Megan from the USA, but they live and work in Copenhagen as musicians. The wedding was at Copenhagen City Hall, with loads of friends and family. After the ceremony we took family photos, and then wandered the back streets of Copenhagen. Our walk took us over cobblestone streets streets to Christiansborg Palace. We ended up being reunited with the party as they loaded onto a boat for a tour of the canals. It was a perfect day and the most beautiful couple. It was a pleasure to document their day.
