Formal application for civil marriage (Anmeldung zur Trauung)

The marriage ceremony can take place in any registry office (Standesamt) within Germany at the wish of the bridal couple. Please contact the staff of the registry office for information about the documents you will be required to produce and always make a prior appointment for your formal application for civil marriage.
