Coronavirus COVID 19 - Denmark Weddings

Please have a read of the more detailed information and update, with longer term information on our blog.


24th March 2020

Today the Danish Government has announced that the town halls will not open until the 13th April, this is the same time as they Danish Boarders will open.  Of course these dates are still subject to change.  For our couples this means that we can NOT book any appointments with the town halls until the 13th April when they will be open again and able to answer emails and take phone calls.  For those of our couples that are waiting to make appointments this means that realistically they will not be able to marry until the week commencing 20th April.  Again this dates may possibly change and we will keep you informed through our social media and of course we will contact couples directly.  If you have any questions then we are here to answer your queries throughout this time.

17th March

11.40 - The Agency of Family Law are still working and responding to emails.  There is a slight delay to their usual almost immediate response, however the system is still open.  Please note this is only for Agencies and not for direct contact for couples that have applied directly.  If you are worried about your application then please let us know and we can try and help.  


16th March

12.30 - After a weekend of uncertainty for a lot of couples there are some couples able to marry today in Copenhagen City hall, these were couples that were already in Denmark before the boarders closed and those who had extenuating circumstances.  Today will be the last day for ceremonies for an undefined period of time.  People are not allowed to enter or exit Denmark for now.


13th March

7.30pm - Denmarks Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen said "The border will be closed from Midday Saturday March 14th for land, air and sea, and last until April 13th, we are in unknown territory, we are in the middle of something none of us has ever tried before. I am certain that we will get through this together, right now, I know that the series of actions we are taking seems very severe and it will be experienced as severe but I am convinced that it is worth it" 

All previous statements of emergency ceremonies are being rethought on Monday. We will keep you posted as events unfold. 

Whilst these measures seem inconvenient it is for the longterm health and happiness of all of our couples and a safer Denmark and World for the future - which is of paramount importance.

UPDATE 14.25 - There are currently no travel bans for any nationals entering Denmark.  Copenhagen airport is running as usual.

UPDATE 13.45 - On Thursday 12th March the Danish government passed a law that allows for people to be tested for the coronavirus, if they are tested as positive then they are to be quarantined and monitored by the Danish police.  This has been seen an excellent way of keeping the country safe from and containing the virus, and will certainly help with the country ending the 'lockdown'.

UPDATE 15.48 - If you are marrying in Copenhagen City Hall during the closure period and have either a VISA or permit that will expire, are pregnant or have a terminal illness please contact us and we may be able (on a case by case basis) still have your ceremony go ahead.
