The Danish International Marriage Certificate


It is not the first thought always when you get married about what the Wedding Certificate will look like and what you will receive after you are  married – that sometimes is secondary to the dress, travel organisation, googling hairstyles and where to celebrate after the wedding!

But for many couples also this IS the first thought as getting married in Denmark and receiving the marriage certificate is a key stage and part of complex and ongoing residency or registration paperwork hinges, and receiving a correct legally recognised marriage certificate in multiple languages is of optimum importance.

In Denmark we arrange for you receive 2 copies of International Marriage Certificate straight after you wedding from the Registrar which will be in 5 languages, and this was English, Danish, German, Spanish and French.

There is a more detailed second document with names and addresses of witnesses and this is kept by the Town Hall you married in for 50 years.

"It was extremely fortuitous that we have a multi lingual certificate of marriage issued as we have since marrying lived in UK, Germany and also France – and thanks to the International Marriage Certificate it has saved us money and time on not needing translations and on presentation at Government offices not being held up!" is what one of our wonderful happy, relieved and happily married international couples wrote to us!
