The Easiest Way to Get Married in Denmark
Denmark, for a variety of reasons, has been a popular marriage destination for foreigners and Germans alike for many years. One of the primary reasons that foreigners living in Germany to get married in Denmark is the short amount of time that it takes (from a couple of days to a week) for the entire procedure.
This is in contrast to Germany where it can take much longer. For example, if one or both of the couple is not a resident, they must establish residency in Germany for at least 21 days.
Also, the amount of paperwork necessary in Germany may be burdensome to collect and prepare in a short period of time.
Another reason Denmark is a good choice is because of the ready availability of wedding service companies that can help you prepare in advance and will assist in dealing with the bureaucracy.
Getting Married in Denmark is a service company started by a Danish/British couple. A short history of the company:
Danish boy meets British girl, one thing leads to another and after a world wind romance, they decide to get married in Denmark.
Experiencing the process of getting married in Denmark and all that is involved, they learned just how important it is to have the support and inspiration to help you prepare for that special day and so they started a wedding magazine to inspire couples who wanted a special touch to their celebration.
The wedding magazine soon led them to planning weddings but quickly they found that they felt happiest when they were helping couples who were in a similar position as they had been when they were getting married in Denmark.
Today, Getting Married in Denmark, with a larger team, helps couples from all over the world, each with their own unique history and situation prepare and administrate everything they need to have their wedding day in Denmark, easy, quickly and without stress.

Apostille Legalisation Service
The Danish international marriage certificate you receive after your wedding in Denmark is written in four languages - Danish, English, French and Spanish. It is valid worldwide but in some countries they do ask for it to be legalized with the Apostille. If you would like to use your marriage certificate for administration in foreign offices, this usually requires that the document is legalized for such use. Not all places require this but we advise you check with the office you intend to use it at first, to know for sure.
We can legalize your document with our Apostille Service. Depending on which town hall you marry and the day of the week, this can take from a couple of days to approximately 1 week.
Town halls around Denmark have different processing times, they also have different document requirements so the length of time it takes to gain confirmation that your documents have been accepted, once they are with the officials at the town hall, can vary. When we have received confirmation for your wedding ceremony, we send you information about your day as well as a billing email for our services.
