Marriage or registered partnership?

Legally, a marriage and a partnerschip are practically identical. More information can be obtained from the Central Government about getting married and registered partnership.

Marrying abroad

The Central Government's website outlines what you have to think about if you plan to marry abroad.

Married abroad

If you married abroad, register the foreign marriage certificate (Dutch) in the Municipal Personal Records Database (BRP). You can do this when you return to the municipality where you live.

Attend the ceremony digitally

Family, friends and acquaintances can follow the ceremony at the city hall through live streaming. This service does not apply to ceremonies for marriages and registered partnerships at which there is no speech, which take place on Monday mornings.


If you marry at a location other than the city hall or municipal office, you would pay the proprietor for the use of the location. These costs would be in addition to the charges shown on this page.
