Wedding ceremonies

Do you want to get married in the City Hall of Stockholm? We conduct civil wedding ceremonies in the City Hall, and private ones at other venues.

On Saturdays we conduct wedding ceremonies for about 60 couples in the Oval Room. The Oval Room has a maximum capacity of 15 guests. Weddings on weekdays are held in a small conference room.

The ceremony is free of charge if one of you lives in Stockholm. If neither of you lives in Stockholm, the cost is 500 SEK.

Documents

To get married you need to apply for a Certificate of No Impediment (hindersprövning) at the Swedish Tax Agency. The two documents you then receive from the Swedish Tax Agency should be sent to the City Hall at least 4 weeks prior to the ceremony to avoid cancellation. If any delays occur, please contact the City Hall via phone or e-mail.

For questions about the documents, contact the Swedish Tax Agency:

If you are calling from Sweden: 0771-567 567
If you are calling from abroad: +46 8 764 92 10
E-mail: servicejouren@skatteverket.se

You can also get information from the Swedish Tax Agency.

The day of the ceremony

To reach the Oval Room use the entrance from Hantverkargatan 1 and walk across the Civic Courtyard towards the waterside park. Take the open-air steps on the left next, to the tower entrance. The Oval Room is located one flight up.

We kindly request that you, including your witnesses and guests, are present at least 15 minutes before the appointed time for the ceremony. The City Hall staff are able to serve as witnesses, if required. Remember to bring valid id-cards and please inform our staff when you arrive.

After the ceremony

You will get a marriage certificate in Swedish and, if requested, one in English in connection to the ceremony. After the wedding ceremony your documents will be sent to the Swedish Tax Agency for registration.

If you require other documentation to verify your marriage in your country, besides the marriage certificate, please contact the Swedish Tax Agency. With your marriage certificate you can also contact a Notarius Publicus for an official stamp.

Private ceremonies

Some of our registrars perform ceremonies in other places than the City Hall. If you are interested in this option you need to contact a registrar by e-mail and book a time, place and date.

When you have agreed on a day for the wedding you register directly online. Then send us an e-mail with day for the wedding and the code you received from the registrar.

Understanding the ceremony

If you do not understand Swedish or English, you need to book an interpreter. Please e-mail us at vigsel@stockholm.se.
