Why get married in Denmark?

Seriously you may ask, why do around 15,000 couples chose to make application with the Danish Agency of Family law and get married in Denmark every year? Well that is because Denmark is one of the easiest places in the world to get married! There are no marital status documents needed, no birth certificates needed, you receive your International Marriage certificates the same day as your wedding and the marriage is legally recognised worldwide. Denmark loves and embraces all forms of love and situations.

- Marry in Days
- Marry on a Tourist VISA
- No Marital Status documents or birth certificates
- International marriage certificates issued same day
- Civil ceremony wedding Legally recognised worldwide
- All forms of love and situations welcome 

You can get married in as little as a few days, up to 4 months after your license is issued from the Danish Agency of Family Law or Familieretshuset as they are also called.

It is probably the fastest and easiest place to get married in Europe for Foreign and International couples as you can also get married on a Tourist Visa, and at most only need to present your original documents the business day before the wedding. 

Also getting married in Denmark is the cheapest option for an elopement wedding, with our prices starting from €290 and going up to only to €1095 with no hidden costs in either package, and a free documents list of requirements for getting married in Denmark.
