Will a Danish Marriage Certificate be legal in my country?

The benefit is worldwide recognition of your ceremony. Apostille legalizes all Danish wedding certificates, allowing for its administrative use in other countries.

Every registry office has internal rules. Once couples choose their location, we can begin the application process. We will provide a timetable once processing begins.




Could we be subject to an interview with the Danish authorities?


Denmark is welcoming to couples who wish to marry within its borders. But it has taken steps to put a stop to sham marriages. In 2019, Denmark passed a law to prevent obtaining EU residency through fake marriage.

A centralized special unit now reviews all wedding applications. It looks for false documentation or suspicious application materials indicating sham marriages. If there are suspicions, the unit may invite the couple for an interview to follow up. The interviews happen at the office in Odense. Couples who refuse this request will have their applications denied.




What is the ceremony like?


Couples looking for a quick ceremony will enjoy a town-hall wedding. On average, they last 5 to 10 minutes and include short vows and a ring exchange. While they are brief, they also are romantic. Registrars can conduct the ceremony in English or German on request.

Some town halls allow outdoor ceremonies and other customizations. This can include writing your own vows, using music, and live-streaming the ceremony. Couples can discuss their wishes and we will do our best to accommodate.

The signing of the marriage certificate follows the ceremony.

What happens after returning home as a married couple?


Denmark registers all weddings performed in the country. Couples also will need to register their ceremony in their home countries. Present your Danish International Wedding Certificate to your local registry office. We recommend doing this as soon as you return home.




Once we're married, can my non-EU partner travel around Europe without a visa?


No, they cannot. Your marriage does not make your partner an EU citizen. Your partner will need to apply for residency in the country where you plan to live. Until then, careful travel around Europe is necessary. This includes ensuring you have the correct visas and travel documents.
