Coaching: Getting married in Germany


Getting married in Germany can be simple or insanely complicated. I’ll help you sort out the documents and organise interpreting on the day.

This is a great place to send us a list of questions or give us some background information so we can prepare. Tip: if you're working on an application, create a shared folder online and give us the link and password here. Otherwise, you can upload documents (e.g. correspondence) below instead.
If you've got files you'd like your coach to have access to when you speak, you can upload them here. You can use the text form above to share a link and a password to an online folder, if you'd prefer.

    Eloping in Berlin is a truly spectacular experience but it’s not always easy to plan your wedding when you don’t speak the language. As a foreigner, you’d normally need to make three appointments at the Standesamt. However, if you’re well-prepared and have all your documents ready on your first visit, you can usually sweet talk them into skipping a step. In this coaching, I can:

    • Let you know which documents you’re likely to need
    • Anticipate any extra requirements based on your personal situation
    • Organise certified translations for you
    • Organise an interpreter for the appointment/s and ceremony (if you’re in Berlin or Munich – extra cost)
    • If you run into unsolvable obstacles, I’ll give you information about getting married in Denmark instead 🙂
