What we think


History, culture, elegance… those are the keywords that you should be after if you are considering this venue. The palace is a very attractive venue, and due to it’s open atrium, you have the feeling of being outdoors as well.

The palace is rented on an hourly basis, which makes it a good option for both wedding ceremonies and wedding receptions.

During the warm summer months, the palace offers shade which is a welcome relief for every bride and groom!

The best alternative to a church wedding

We regularly meet couples who are not sure which ceremony to book. Part of the family might want a church ceremony and the other part not. We all know that weddings is all about compromises and finding the best possible option out there for you.

This palace has been the preferred choice for couples faced with this ceremony dilemma: the palace will give you the feeling of importance, like a good ceremony venue should, and especially when booking our romance package, we then often include religious elements such as the Prayers of the Faithful or Religious Music.

We have experienced non of the family members to be disappointed when we plan this, in fact, especially parents reported back to us that it was much much better than they had expected.
