"Marry-made-easy" - that is our slogan. Simple explanations, transparent prices, no payment in advance. We show you a fast, non-bureaucratic and inexpensive way you can get married in Denmark.
Through personal experience we know which difficulties come up when one wants to get married in Germany. In 2002 Karsten could marry his Kenyan wife only in Denmark. This experience led him in 2003 to set up the the agency marriages-made-easy, jointly with Victoria. Our successful concept has already convinced over 5,000 couples, as you can see in our references.
You can choose between our Express-Marriage (330, - €), with a maximum of 1 day stop over in Denmark and our secure chauffeur service (990,- or 1.490,- €). We offer fast processing times, including appointments at a short notice, without any extra charges. With us, you only pay when we successfully provide you a wedding date.
How does our concept work?
It is based on the simplified Danish marriage law in combination with European law, which allows for all EU citizens and Non-EU citizens to marry in all Member States of the European Union. In Denmark there is no certificate of no impediment to marriage required.
However, since 01.01.2019 there are decisive changes. Through a new law, the Danish government wants to take action against "sham marriage". The examination of the documents is no longer carried out by the respective registry offices, but by a central authority. The newly created state administration checks the documents within 5 working days and issues a Danish certificate of marital status. Only with this document can the respective registry office assign an appointment for the marriage. The state administration can refuse a marriage on justified suspicion of "sham marriage", demand additional documents and ask the couples for an interview. The fee for the examination of the documents, in the amount of 225, - €, is due in advance and will not be refunded if rejected. So-called "shem marriages" are no longer possible in Denmark.
What documents are required?
For a marriage in Denmark, only the following documents are required:
- passport or EU identity card
- birth certificate
- proof of marital status; for all registered persons in Germany, this is the „Aufenthaltsbescheiniung mit Familienstand“ (residence certificate with marital status display)
- if applicable: final divorce of decree
Since the requirements may differ in individual cases, such as Non-EU citizens or divorce degrees from non-EU countries, you have the option for a personal document inquiry for your case.
Who can use our service?
In Denmark all couples who are legally in Germany or the EU can get married, except for asylum seekers and foreigners who are only 'tolerated' in Germany or the EU.
Can same-sex couples to marry in Denmark?
Since 2012, Denmark allows same-sex marriages, same-sex couples can finally also get married there. The couples need the same documents as any hetero couples. The extent to which same-sex marriage is recognized in the respective home countries of the couples, we can not say.
How do we proceed?
