FAQ

About Getting Married in Denmark

How long does it take to get married in Denmark?

Once we have all the documents from the couple, we work very quickly to process your application and then we usually receive your approval within a week. 

Although we do advise our couples that it can sometimes take up to 4 weeks depending on how busy the Agency of Family Law is at that point.

If we were to give you an average time of how long it takes to get married in Denmark from the first contact to the wedding ceremony, we would say around one and a half months. 

This starts from the time the couple first contacts us and takes our service.

The next stage is gathering documents and getting ready for the application. 

When we receive your approval, we then need to book your appointment and the time this takes varies depending on the town hall. 

Some are quick at replying, whereas others take a week or so to get back to us.

If you’re in a rush, we would advise a town hall for you which is quick with their communication and also has plenty of availability.
