Book a registrar

Choose your wedding location and time yourself

You can book a registrar to perform your wedding on exactly the date and the location of your choice - even abroad or in a different municipality (kommune) than Copenhagen.

You could choose to be married in your garden or house, on a boat, a restaurant or perhaps in the place you met for the first time.

The registrar can also make a personal speech for you, if you wish.

The registrar will arrive at your wedding location 15 minutes before the ceremony, which will last about 10 minutes.
