You have a wedding appointment for an open-air ceremony in 2021

See the updated guidelines for the day below. Find more information on your wedding in the letter attached to your booking confirmation.


We look forward to seeing you and your guest on your wedding day, and we hope that you will have a beautiful and memorable day.

Due to the current restrictions, we kindly ask you to follow the guidelines below:

  • Please only arrive 5 minutes before your appointment.
  • You and your guests are welcome to wear masks, but this is not a requirement.
  • Please leave the wedding areal after your ceremony.

Please also note:

  • You do not need to show a negative test, proof of vaccine etc. (such as the Danish Corona Passport).
  • If you have an appointment at the Citadel (Kastellet) on 15 May: Do not bring more than 72 guests, since the outdoor limit on public gatherings has been set to 75 people.
  • If you have an appointment for an open-air wedding after 21 May: The limit on outdoor public gatherings has been set to 100 people and will be removed entirely on 11 June.

We will update this website if any new regulations require us to change the guidelines above. We recommend that you visit this website in the days leading up to your wedding.

As we have introduced extra safety measures, delays may occur on the day. We thank you for your understanding.

Do you or your partner not have a CPR number?

We ask all persons who do not have a CPR number in Denmark or any of the Nordic countries to please present their original documents – passport (and visa, if relevant) - at Copenhagen City Hall one working day before your ceremony at the latest. The Wedding Office at Copenhagen City Hall is open Mondays from 11:00 to 12:30 and Wednesday to Friday from 11:00  to 12:30 and 13:00 to 14:30.

  • The registrar and the official witnesses will keep a distance to you during the ceremony.
  • The registrar will not shake your hand.
  • The registrar will not wear a mask.
  • You can sign your marriage papers with new pens, which you can keep afterwards.
  • Hand sanitiser will be available for everyone.
  • We make sure that the couple before you has left the area before it is your turn.

What you can do

We hope that both you and your guests will help us by following the advice and the Danish Health Authorities’ general recommendations below:

  • Keep a distance to other couples.
  • Cough and sneeze in your sleeve.
  • Use the hand sanitiser accessible at the event.
