Bryllupsfest på Refshaleøen Københavns havn

The urban bohemian wedding

At Skabelonloftet you can have an unconventional wedding in a historic industrial setting on top of the former B&W shipyard, overlooking the entrance to Copenhagen harbor. The wedding dinner is held in our function room ‘The Template Room’ which is 190 m2 and the wedding party is held in ‘Studio 1’ which is 145 m2. If you want to hold a rustic, raw and slightly more informal wedding, then Skabelonloftet is a good choice for a special location in the center of Copenhagen. Our premises are located under the ceiling in one of the old shipyard halls. The old wooden floors, steel structures and large factory windows have been preserved, creating a raw cozy atmosphere perfect for the urban bohemian wedding. You will have the opportunity to take a beautiful photo session on our iconic staircase up to the Skabelonloftet. So, if your desire is a wedding venue with room for your own ideas – then Skabelonloftet is the right place.

Burmeister & Wain was founded in 1846 and operated as a shipyard until 1996, when the company went bankrupt. Everything from ship architects, ship builders, carpenters, blacksmiths and stilt boys worked in the many halls that the island consists of. Now the area is home to galleries, restaurants, designers and artist workshops, where creative people work in the old factory buildings.

We have space for both large parties with +120 people and the smaller and more intimate parties with the closest ones. You are very welcome to come by and see our beautiful venue in the middle of Copenhagen.
