It was a summer’s day in Copenhagen. The weather was warm, even though there was a little rain in the year air. The rain was very light and quiet and it stopped just a little before I was going to meet Laura and Rory in front of Frederiksberg town hall. The city was damp and there was moisture in the air, but it felt clear and refreshing.
A ceremony in a Danish Town Hall rarely lasts more than 5 to 10 minutes. So about 20 minutes after we met in front of the town hall, we were back down on the streets. Laura and Rory of course as a happy newlywed couple and together we were ready to explore Copenhagen.
They had rented an airbnb close by, so we went there, dropped off the marriage certificate and picked up the bag they had packed for our little trip around town. We were going on bikes, because they really wanted that and I always think that is an amazing way to experience Copenhagen, so that’s what we did. Of course, if you are wearing a wedding dress that can be a problem, but Laura was prepared and had an extra skirt for bike riding.
We had in the planning phase made a list of locations we wanted to go, so we knew where we were going. But I don’t like having a minute by minute plan, I think there has to be room for winging it. It has to be a relaxed and joyful experience, not just a list of places we check it off and then move on. Experience is key.
We spent a good 3 hours roaming around town and ended up in the always wonderful Tivoli, which is an old amusement park packed full of ambience and a cosy feeling.
We parted ways and Laura and Rory kept experiencing what Copenhagen has to offer.
