To get married in Slovenia, firstly both parties need to be 18 years old and should not be related by blood, marriage or adoption. Two witnesses are required during the ceremony and they must present their passports to the registry office one day before the ceremony. Only civil marriage ceremonies are considered to be valid, but you may also have a church wedding ceremony. Same-sex marriage is also recognised.
To get married in Slovenia, marriage applicants must submit the following document to the Administrative Unit:
Two witnesses have to present their personal details (name, surname, date of birth and address).
The submitted documents must not be older than 6 months and must be issued on the basis of international conventions or authenticated in accordance with the Act on verification of documents in international traffic.
Documents written in a foreign language must be translated into Slovene by a sworn court interpreter and the wedding ceremony itself likewise has to be interpreted.
Original documents with apostils have to be sent by registered post to a specified address eight weeks before the confirmed wedding date at the latest.
We can help you obtain certified translations of your documents by a Slovenian court translator.
If immigration documents are required, e.g. Entry Visa to Slovenia, that is the responsibility of the wedding couple and their guests.
Documents needed for a church wedding are usually provided by your catholic priest from your parish. You can get married in a Catholic church even if you are Evangelic or Orthodox.
