Every town hall has their own requirements and regulations, so we asses your situation and offer the best solutions for you as well as give you the correct list of documents needed.
Please keep in mind that the list below is only a guideline, please Contact Us if you would like us to send you a list of documents that fits you and your partners circumstances.
Documents that are not in English, German or Danish must be translated in to one of these three languages.
In order to process your application, we will require all documents requested as scans via email. You will then be required to present them as originals to the marriage office when you come to Denmark for your wedding.
