Marriage ceremony premises
The bridal couple must bring their identity certificates to the ceremony. The ceremony can be arranged in Finnish, Swedish or English. The duration of the marriage ceremony is approximately five minutes.
You may take photos and videos in the marriage ceremony space, but if you wish to share these photos or videos on social media, please remember to ask everyone who is present in the photo/video for their permission.
Marriage ceremonies organised at Local Register Offices are free of charge during office hours. You can book a time and date for your marriage ceremony using our online reservation service. All available times and dates are presented under each service location.
If necessary, you can book an officiator for your civil marriage ceremony at the venue of your choice after office hours. A fee of 250 euros is charged for all wedding ceremonies officiated after office hours. In addition, the travel expenses of the officiator to your marriage venue will be added to the fee. If you are planning a wedding ceremony that will be arranged outside office hours, please send an email to [email protected]
Due to the coronavirus pandemic the bridal couple must bring their own witnesses
Due to the coronavirus situation, we ask that you keep the number of the wedding guests as small as possible. In areas that are currently in the acceleration or spreading stage, the total number of witnesses and wedding guests has been limited to 4 people in order to ensure safety distances.
Two witnesses who are at least 15 years of age must be present during the marriage ceremony. Please check from the list of Service locations below if our staff members can act as witnesses which is not possible at every location.
When visiting the agency, please follow safety distances and authorities’ recommendations on wearing a mask.
