We have helped a lot of couples from Germany get married in Denmark because the process is a lot quicker, easier and cheaper than in Germany - and it is so close.  You can have breakfast in Germany, get to Denmark and marry, and be home in Germany in time for your Wedding day Dinner! We actually have German offices now recommending to couples to look at getting married in Denmark rather than Germany as it is so much easier and faster, and the documentation requirements are minimal. And with an expert wedding planner in Denmark like us you can be assured that everything will run smoothly.

You also receive at least 2 International Marriage certificates which are legally recognised worldwide - for an example of what this looks like have a look here. Do check with the German office that you will be registering the wedding as we are hearing from more and ore couples that the Standesamt  are at times requiring your marriage certificate to be Legalised with an Apostille - which is very easy and a service we can offer or guide you on - details here.

For those of you getting married in Denmark who want to marry close to the German border -  to make it even easier we have put a little map to show where the town halls are that may be of interest to you.

Each has something special to give and has different lead-times. But as we work with them all we can find one to suit exactly what you want and need.

Just contact us for a free no obligation documents list of what you will require to get married in Denmark (but you do not need birth certificates or Marital Status/Single status certificates!) and a chat about how much easier it is for you to get married in Denmark than in Germany. We have helped German residents and Citizens marry in under 2 weeks from start of the process to the wedding day.
