Do you have plans to get married or register a partnership? Congratulations! Getting married in Helmond is possible everywhere, at any time and by whomever you want. Below you will find all the information you need.
Contact your desired wedding location to discuss your wishes. You have to inform the wedding location of the date, time and room of your marriage or registered partnership yourself. This also applies if you get married in the Castle. Please note: the location may charge a fee for the use of the location. These costs are additional to the costs we charge as a municipality. This also applies if you get married in the Castle.
You can get married anywhere in the municipality of Helmond. There are a number of conditions for a wedding location:
You report your intended marriage or partnership via the link below. You can already report your plans for 1 year before your wedding day or partner registration. The last option is 2 weeks before your wedding. You make agreements with the municipality on how to conclude a marriage or register a partnership. For example about the date and time. You can also make arrangements about what the ceremony will look like. You need a minimum of 2 and a maximum of 4 witnesses. The witnesses must have a minimum age of 18.
Sometimes we need additional documents. For example, if you were born abroad, lived there, you are divorced or if you do not have Dutch nationality. Then please contact us by telephone number 14 0492.
If you both not live in the Netherlands and you and/or your partner have Dutch nationality, you can only report your intended marriage/partnership in the municipality of The Hague (The Hague).
If we have received all the data, we will let you know as soon as possible if you need to submit any additional documents and if we have a wedding official available for your wedding. If you have to submit documents from abroad, keep in mind that 2 weeks are too short.
The report of intended marriage or partnership is free of charge.
