How to “ marry legally ” in Switzerland
Swiss Law makes it easy for International couples to obtain a legal civil marriage license recognized as binding in your home land.
Formal preparations can begin 6 months prior to your desired wedding date, however; the documents will require a minimum of 3 months to be processed. Our contact with the local government civil office allows us to inquire and reserve an available date, venue and time for your legal marriage ceremony in Switzerland. No wedding planner is able to process your paperwork for you. Like applying for a passport, you must personally visit your nearest Swiss consulate and file the necessary documents. We will direct you to the proper offices in order to obtain a legal civil marriage license.
* Contact us to set your preferred date for your civil marriage in Switzerland.
You may obviously contact us earlier than 6 month prior to your wished date in order to have ample time to discuss and settle all other details.
* Affidavit stating your marital status
* Valid passport
* Birth certificates dated no older than 6 months prior to the wedding date
* Personal visit to the Swiss Embassy / General Consulate in your home country.
* 2 Witnesses: We can act as your official witnesses if necessary.
* A government officiate will conduct your service in English, German or French.
The Civil Marriage can be combined with a “Symbolic Ceremony” if you wish.
Hi Cindy & Pascal
We had the pleasure of not only having Cindy as our amazing photographer on our wedding day, but also as our incredible wedding planner. By combining these two essential skills, our wedding in Switzerland was more than we could ever have dreamed of, with every single guest commenting that it was the best wedding that they have ever attended. As our wedding planner, we met Cindy a year before our wedding day and although living in different countries may have been a barrier to some, I have to say that we never had any concerns. Cindy made every effort to get to know me and my husband and we exchanged regular emails where we are able to convey our wishes and expectations. Cindy with the help of Pascal managed to superseded every expectation that we had and by helping to plan our day meant that the photographs that Cindy took were very personal and incorporated our personalities, in a way that you would expect a friend to capture the precious moments. With a combination of professional posed pictures and relaxed, humors shots we have our memories captured on film for all of eternity, something that we will forever be in debt to our fabulous wedding planner, photographer extraordinaire.
Thank You !
Sam & Craig
