REQUIRED DOCUMENTS FOR
GETTING MARRIED IN DENMARK
Getting Married in Denmark was the first website we came across and it provided all the information we needed to make our decision and since it had such great reviews we did not bother looking elsewhere. We got an immediate response from Samantha Hicks who helped make all the necessary arrangements for us. Not only did she help us with preparing our documents and getting the actual date we wanted at City Hall, she also provided us with recommendations for photography and hair/make up. This worked out great for us as everything fell into place perfectly. We highly recommend them to anyone considering getting married in Denmark, you will definitely get all the support and attention you need from a super friendly and professional company. Huge thanks from us to Samantha as well for all her help and time.
I want to say a huge Thank You to Getting Married In Denmark, and especially to Samantha Hicks who made our special day so easy. Thanks to them, living thousands kilometers away from Denmark is not an obstacle to get married in a beautiful city Copenhagen. The process was very simple and customer service that Sam provided was the best in my life.
I am very happy that I found you. Thank you.
It was a fantastic help. Incredible service, polite and hands-on people. They made our experience even more joyful, they took care of all the paper work and Samantha was always super careful and helpful. Bureaucracy in other countries can drive you crazy, and I can only recommend this agency to make your big day happier and less worried. København is such a beautiful city!
Even easier than expected, great service! We had the chance to work with Leanne during all the process and she made it going so smoothly without any issue. Leanne is really knowledgeable and willing to help us on any point. Any question via mail was answered really quickly and she's also really friendly. We really have no complaint to bring on the service within GettingMarried and I strongly recommend this option. Thank you again Leanne to make this time even more beautiful than it was.

HOW WE WORK WITH YOU
Once you email us we will send you an automated email straight away with some questions that help us understand your circumstances and when you would like to marry, one of our wedding advisers will then get back to you as soon as possible.
We then take a look at your current situation, history and also take in to account when you would like to marry to find the best solution and location for your needs as well as tell you the specific documentation we will need to process your application.
When we have all of your documents we begin processing. This starts at our end first. We check them over and make sure they are correct, pick out any potential problems and work them through with you. We then hand the documents over to the officials at the town hall. Sometimes further problems may arise with your documentation and we are immediately on hand to resolve any issues.
Town halls around Denmark have different processing times, they also have different document requirements so the length of time it takes to gain confirmation that your documents have been accepted, once they are with the officials at the town hall, can vary. When we have received confirmation for your wedding ceremony, we send you information about your day as well as a billing email for our services.
Throughout this whole process we are constantly on hand for any questions you have. Our response time is always exceptionally quick. Whether it’s help with your documentation or advice on your stay in Denmark we are constantly supporting you.
