It’s probably because you’re thinking of getting hitched soon — congratulations if you’ve landed on this article! Much more likely than maybe maybe not, you’re residing in Germany, or somewhere else on earth, and seeking at just just how and where you might get married effortlessly and quickly.
Thankfully Denmark has caused it to be extremely simple for partners of any sex and nationality to especially get married for foreigners desperate to marry EU citizens. This might be particularly real for Germans desperate to marry non-EU residents (or anyone, actually), due to the fact bureaucracy, documents and time it will require to obtain hitched in Germany is complex, long and never well well worth your time and effort in my experience.
There are many of Danish wedding preparation services on the market who are able to arrange the journey, ceremony and documents. If you would like go down that road, that is fine but this short article may not be for you personally. Then read on if you’re like me and very independent and unwilling to shell out thousands of euros to do something I could do myself.
