Sandra and Benjamin got married early in June, when the Danish summer might grant you lots of sun or drench you to the bone. It was a really fun and different wedding for us, with an epic church, a roaring car engine and a beautiful couple.
Wedding mornings are busy. Nerves, hair dos, dresses, ties - usually, that is all a lot to think about on top of planning to arrive at the church semi-punctual. Sandra and Benjamin also had to make sure that their five kids were all set and ready to attend or participate in the ceremony as the best man/son.

Benjamin and the bridesmaids left earlier so Sandra's dress would still be a surprise for him. It also meant that Sandra now could fully concentrate on the big hours ahead of her.
Time for detail shots in the amazing old car on the way to church!
Benjamin still all chill.
Wedding Ceremony in Copenhagen Cathredal
Sandra and Benjamin got married in the Copenhagen Cathedral. It's the first time we shot a wedding in the church that also crown prince Frederik and crown princess Mary got married in.
It's a beautiful church in the middle of the city which resulted in many well wishers when the bridal car pulled up in front of the church.
Waiting for the bride!
The pastor was so nice to allow us to go up on the first floor balconies, which usually isn't open for guests. We're always so thankful for understanding pastors and sextons that help us not get in their way.
Many churches no longer allow the traditional throwing of rice as it is bad for birds that tend to eat the rice. Sandra and Benjamin picked grains suitable for birds instead.

Bridal Shoot in the Danish Summer
We had a quick photoshoot in the beautiful area around the venue before the reception started. The toddler enjoyed the freemdom that being able to walk on two feet provided - so that's what she did most of the time. Everyone was on board, so we got some fun shots of the family all following the toddler, trying to catch up with her. Turns out that they can be really fast if they want to and when you don't want them to be.
Congratulations to Sandra and Benjamin, and thank you that we could follow you on this day!
