Marriage in Denmark - easy, fast and unbureaucratic
Especially for non-citizens of the EU staying in the EU, it is often complicated to collect all the documents needed for a marriage in their home country. It takes time for the documents to be examined, so that some might already lose their validity. This could lead to additional costs.
To get married in Denmark, therefore, is an easy and simple alternative. It offers a less bureaucratic opportunity for a marriage. This is why marriage in Denmark is so popular, especially among couples of different nationalities. A marriage contracted in Denmark is legally recognized all over Europe and other countries.
From 1.1.2019 new laws regarding marriage came into force
From 1.1.2019 new laws regarding marriage came into force. The change affects both required documents and the entire process.
To avoid fictitious marriage, couples must now prove that they are in relationship with each other. This could be a proof that they live or have lived together, been on holiday together, have a common bank account, chats, phone calls, etc..

Before 2019, documents were checked at the registry office where the wedding was to take place. The process has changed completely from 2019. Examination of the documents is now carried out exclusively by the Family Law Agency in Denmark, which is located in Odense. The agency grants a marriage license if the examination of the documents is positive and there are no doubts that it is a fictitious marriage. In the next step, a date for the marriage is agreed with the selected registry office.
How does the process work
To give you an overview of the process, here are the milestones of organizing your marriage in Denmark.
- Prepare your documents through our agency
- Request an examination and a marriage license from the governmental Agency of Family Law in Denmark
- Agree upon an appointment for the marriage
- Reservation of an appointment at the registry office
- Send appointment confirmation with information to the couple
How fast can you marry
There are 4 instances that prepare the marriage. Each instance takes time
- Our Agency
- Danish Public Administration
- Registry office
The mostly delay in preparation lies with customers and Danish state administration. We answer all emails daily and check your documents and forms within 1 working day .
When documents are prepared and the payment made, our organization work begins in Denmark. Danish Public Administration promises to issue the marriage license within 5-7 working days if all documents are in order. However, it is not always the case. It is not possible to influence the state administration to prioritize the documents of a couple.
Because we have a lot of experience with many registry offices, we can get you a date to marry in the shortest time possible if we have the license from the state administration.
Ideally, the process works like this
