We Take Care of the paperwork!

Whether you want to get married in nature, at the town hall or in Erichsens Gård, we at Wedding on the Rocks strive to deal with the required documents for your wedding as quickly and efficiently as possible. We work closely together with the Danish authorities to ensure everything is right.

The Danish authorities need the following documents:

  • Personal ID – Valid passport or EU-ID. Provision of Schengen visa or residence permit are only necessary, if they are legally required to arrive in Denmark. For passports, all pages are needed, including front and back.
  • Certificate of residence or another document with your names and address – Only needed, if you live together. Documents such as a utility bill can be sufficient.
  • Birth certificates for common children
  • Divorce decree or death certificate – only if one or both of you previously were married.

All documents must be provided in either English, German or Danish. 

Certification Requirements:

Birth certificates, divorce decrees and death certificates might need an Apostille stamp or certification. Apostille stamps and certifications must not be older than 4 months by the time we submit your wedding application.

Documents from the following countries do not need an Apostille stamp or certification: USA, Canada, New Zealand, Australia and Turkey.

The same applies for all European countries except the following: Albania, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Kosovo, Russia, Tajikistan, Ukraine and Uzbekistan.

Documents from these countries and all other Apostille Convention member countries not mentioned will need an Apostille stamp. You can see all Apostille Convention member countries here.

Documents from countries outside the Apostille Convention will need a full certification.

If you have documents from Pakistan or Nigeria, an extra verification is needed. Send us an e-mail on to get more information about this.

Proforma Marriages:

Please note that since 2019 proforma marriages are no longer permitted in Denmark. Proforma suspicion might trigger an in-person interview which will delay the approval process.

After you have booked your wedding, we require copies of all of the above documents. These can be submitted to our secure email server using the button below.

We will check your documents and submit them to the local authorities for approval.
