Civil ceremony documents

The following documents are required to get married in Denmark. These allow us to have your civil ceremony and ensure its legality. We provide the Notice of Marriage form, while the rest are documents that you have or need to obtain. Danish authorities accept English, German and Danish documents. If your documents are not in any of these languages, you need to get them translated by an authorized translator.

Print, fill out, scan and send all documents to us. When you come to Denmark, you must bring the original documents. If you have any questions or problems regarding the process or documents – contact us.
