The Danish Wedding

Recently I did a bridal makeup all the way up in the north of Denmark. Since this is a “whole package” of bridal makeup service, I stayed all throughout the wedding and was also invited to attend the wedding dinner. Besides the funny songs and personal speeches, what I enjoy the most when attending a Danish wedding is the kissing tradition. It began during the early 1970s and it being in practice until today. During the dinner party, whenever the groom leaves the room – to the gents or taking photo – all the men in the room rush over and queue up to kiss the bride and whenever the bride leaves the room, all the women rush over to kiss the groom. Whenever the guests banging fork or knife on the plate, the wedding couple have to climb onto their chairs and kiss! When the guests stamp their feet, the pair have to kiss under the table. There are many other traditions carried during the ceremony such as throwing the rice, cutting the socks ect. If you ever getting an invitation to a Danish wedding, don´t miss it!

Here are the photos from the wedding:
