Due to the Prime Minister’s announcement of the lock down of public services in Denmark, there are changes in our wedding schedule.

You can get married at Ting- og Arresthuset in Esbjerg every Friday and on Saturdays in uneven weeks, as well as at the Old Townhall in Ribe every Friday and on Saturdays in even weeks.


Due to corona restrictions currently only residents of Schleswig-Holstein are allowed to cross the Danish border without a worthy reason. Therefore, couples from this part of Germany can still get married at the Old Townhall in Ribe.

You can keep yourself updated on the current entry rules on this web site: https://coronasmitte.dk/en/entry-into-denmark

In order to reduce the risk of infection with the new coronavirus, a maximum of 2 guests are currently allowed at a wedding ceremony.

Everyone has to wear a mouth nose protection mask when entering the house!


If you need help, don't hesitate to contact the wedding office - by phone or in writing.
