“We chose Bornholm for our wedding location because it is our holiday island. The island lies within easy reach from the west of Germany and we travelled around 8 hours by car to Sassnitz, with an additionally 3 hours ferry trip to Rønne”, they told our wedding planners. “We are so satisfied with the island, because Bornholm is wonderful for holidays, never mind in which season you arrive there. We love the different types of nature and how they fit into the different landscapes and microclimates. The small villages with their shopping and handcraft stores and their offer of gastronomy complete our expectations, and there is always a huge variety of activities on offer, especially in nature.”

Judith and André picked the ruin of Salomon’s Chapel (Salomens Kapel) close to Allinge in the north of Bornholm as the dream location for their wedding ceremony. As they know the island well, it was not difficult to determine exactly the spot for their perfect wedding day. The ruins offer an amazing view over the Baltic Sea, but also plenty of green spaces, trees, steep and impressive cliffs as well as the opportunity for a romantic beach walk after. 

If you wish to get married on Bornholm, but don’t know the island as well as Judith and André or can’t decide upon the perfect location for your wedding ceremony, please do not hesitate to contact our wedding planners in Wedding on the Rocks. We are true locals to Bornholm and know the island like the back of our hands.

 

How It All Happened

Judith and André arrived with three wedding guests on Bornholm, who all were happy to share the big day with the lovely couple. Our wedding planners in Wedding on the Rocks did deal with the paperwork of the couple beforehand. This was to ensure that the marriage also would be legally valid in Germany. We also in cooperation with the couple chose exactly the right spot for the ceremony and decorated it to their wishes to make everything look perfect on the day. 

The ceremony was held in the German language by a registrar from the local registry office in Rønne, which also can provide English – and obviously Danish – speakers for weddings. If you wish to have an English or German speaking ceremony to suit yourself and your guests, please contact one of our wedding planners well in advance. The earlier we know, the more like it is we can book the registrar with the appropriate language capabilities on your chosen wedding date.

Judith and André started the ceremony by walking down the natural ‘aisle’ of Salomon’s chapel, observed by their wedding guests. The ruins of the ancient chapel provided an impressive arch for the couple to make an entrance to the wedding location. There the guests – and the all important wedding registrar – awaited them eagerly. Our wedding planners had decorated the inside court of the chapel with candles and flowers, chosen by the couple and prepared for by an eco-friendly local gardener and florist on Bornholm. 

In line with Bornholm’s reputation as Europe’s most sustainable island, our wedding planners in Wedding on the Rocks aim to provide as much in terms of sustainable resources as we possibly can. All the flowers and floral decorations provided for Judith and André’s wedding ceremony were grown locally to organic standards.
