What is a Mayday Ceremony Service?

If you have already obtained your approval from the AFL but are not sure who to contact next or how to proceed, then you may be interested in taking one of our ‘Mayday Ceremony Services’.

If you would like us to take care of the logistics of booking your wedding ceremony at the town hall and you’re looking for a wedding date sooner than the ‘standard’ availabilities at these town halls will allow, then hiring a Private Registrar at Copenhagen City Hall for a sooner ceremony date, or taking the Fast Friday Ceremony at Stevns town hall for a wedding on a Friday with private witnesses (when witnesses are not provided by the town hall) then these additional ceremony services will work perfectly for you.

You will also have the full support of our Wedding Day Team who will be here to help you with any questions you may have in the run up to your ceremony, and beyond!

Our Private Registrar Service offers you a ceremony outside of the standard wedding ceremony appointments at the City Hall which are sometimes booked up, weeks or even months in advance. 

By hiring a registrar, 

– you will have more chance of getting married on the date you wish, at shorter notice. 
– You can have a half an hour ceremony instead of 7 minutes (Only with Registrar Private Plus)
– Same day documentation presentation (except for Saturdays)  

We can only check availability and book your registrar once we have your application approval from the Danish Government. It’s important to note that private registrars can become booked up too. This is why we can’t guarantee specific dates. We recommend being flexible by a couple of days on either side.

How is it different from a standard town hall wedding at the City Hall?

At Copenhagen City Hall, standard wedding appointments are between 11:00 and 14:00. Within this time, there are a set amount of appointments available. These appointments are free to book and Copenhagen City Hall is popular amongst couples so their free appointment times get booked up quickly.  

If you’re flexible and book in good time it’s not a problem to be able to find a spot, but if you have a shorter time frame and you are less flexible, it can be difficult to find a free space.

Registrars can be hired to help you outside of these normal wedding hours so when all the standard wedding appointments are fully booked, you still have the chance of having your ceremony on that day.
