Easiest place To Marry In Europe on a Tourist Visa


Here at Marry Abroad Simply, we know that life administration is hard, living abroad is hard, finding the right documents in the right format and sending it to the right department is hard!  Both of us (Sam and Leanne) have lived abroad and know the stresses of finding international documentation for yourself and your family, and to let you in on a bit of a secret, we actually quite enjoy it!

One of the reasons that we started Marry Abroad Simply was to help couples that have met, fell in love and have wanted to start a new life together, but need that all important marriage certificate, or the couples that have been together for years and have decided to officiate their relationship, those international couples who want to share their lives together but really don't know where to start!

The easiest way to get married in Europe is to look at Getting married in Denmark or Getting married in Gibraltar. These countries are both by far the easiest locations and countries to get married in Europe for any couple, even if you are International, same sex, non resident, visiting as tourists or on a short term visa.

They are some of the easiest counties to get married in the world for foreign couples as they do not require Marital Status or single status documents or certificates or impediment, and if you are looking at getting married in Denmark they do not require a birth certificate either.

They really are the easiest countries and the easiest ways to get married in the world.

There are a lot of agencies out there that specialise in one location and they can help with only marrying in a choice of one country, and then limited locations within that country. However here at Marry Abroad Simply we have 2 Country locations and 100s of different locations within those countries so we can match you with the most suitable country and location for geography and documents to suit YOU, rather than to suit what WE have on offer.  We will soon be expanding to more countries to offer even more choice for documents on hand, dates, VISAS or travel permissions you have. 

We always aimed to ensure we can help our couples marry in the best, easiest way for them, and be the easiest places in Europe to get married -  we are the most couple focussed agency you will find, just read our reviews!
