The standard paperwork and contact with the Danish authorities is included in all our packages. Magical Weddings charge 50 € per additional letter that we are instructed by couples to write – for example, to relevant embassies on their behalf. The 50 € fee applies to written communication that falls beyond our standard service.
We are very careful that the copies are correct and that they live up to the standards of the Danish Wedding Authorities in order not to delay your application. We might ask for a new copy. But do not worry. With our expertise, we know all about the quality required for all types of document copies.
