Civil wedding

The Civil Weddings on Fanø take place at our Town Hall.

We do our utmost to make it a special experience.

At the registration meeting, you will be told, which door to enter for your ceremony the following day for the City Hall. There is no need for any additional documentation to be shown on the day of the ceremony. At the day of the ceremony the registrar will tell you about the ceremony and you will be asked if you wish to confirm the wedding with rings, a kiss, vows or perhaps a mixture of the three. You will stand in front of the registrar while the ceremony is conducted.

Getting married at the townhall is easy
First the protocol will be confirmed, then there is a short text and finally you will be asked if you wish to marry each other. You are required to say “yes” or “I do”, but you will not have to repeat any words. Thereafter both of you and the witnesses must sign the protocol, and the registrar signs the wedding certificates. You wedding certificates will be given to you together with a small wedding present from the Municipality of Fanø.
After the ceremony you will be invited to share a glass of port wine or water to celebrate the wedding. You are welcome to bring your own sparkling wine, and champagne glasses will then be provided for. You will have half an hour at your disposal, but you are welcome to continue celebrating, and taking
pictures outside in front of the registry office


You may wish to organize your reception yourselves at a rented beach house, or you may wish to let one of the first class Hotels and restaurants on the island do the catering or host the reception and/or dinner part. Take look at our Restaurant Folder.


If you do not bring your own witnesses, we have a wonderful group of witnesses from the Association of Senior Citizens. They do a fantastic job to make yourceremony a special experience.
Their service is included in the price.
However, you are more than welcome to show your appreciation with a small gift.


Our witnesses are happy to take pictures during the ceremony if you bring your own camera.
To fully capture memories of your island wedding, you may consider booking one of our house photographers. This way you also have the chance to have your wedding pictures taken by the sea after the ceremony.
