Thanks Marlis
I did not think of calling the Danish embassy. Maybe they can help. There must be a way to get this sorted. After all, other people seem to be getting married all the time.

your profile says you are Irish. Is this true? You are Irish, the bf is Dutch and you want to get married in a third country, right?

Then please note that it gets more complicated law-wise the more countries are involved. Especially (cross your fingers) in the unfortunate event that you two need a divorce and later want to marry somebody else.

In your marriage plans as they are now there are three legal systems involved: Irish family and marriage law, Dutch family and marriage law and Danish family and marriage law as well as Irish name law, Dutch name law and Danish name law. (Read that three times in a row as fast as you can.)

After you got married in Denmark, you'll each have to go through the process of getting your marriage recognised in your respective countries. You would both save yourself some pain if you got married either in the Netherlands or Ireland, as it would eliminate Danish marriage law from the equation.

Just my two cents.
