If neither you nor your partner live in the Netherlands, you must give notice of your marriage in the municipality of Den Haag (The Hague). You can find more information on how to register a marriage for Dutch citizens living outside the Netherlands at the website.

When you register your marriage, you make a number of choices, which you communicate to the municipality. These choices relate to the ceremony and the venue. The costs depend on your wishes and the possibilities of the municipality of Eersel.


The ceremony is the official part of your marriage. You can choose from:

  • no ceremony (free of charge);
  • elaborate ceremony.

If you opt for an elaborate ceremony, you can choose who leads the ceremony. You have the following choices:

  • A wedding registrar from the municipality. The wedding registrar will contact you a few weeks before the wedding date to introduce themselves and find out more about you and your future spouse. If you have a preference for a wedding registrar, inform the municipality of this.
  • a private wedding official. The condition is that the private wedding official has already been sworn in at the court.

If you choose your own wedding official, contact the municipality. 

Wedding venue

You can get married in various places. You can choose from:

  • a wedding venue of the municipality;
  • a wedding venue of your own choice. 

If you want to hold the ceremony at a location of your choice, contact the municipality.

  • marriage free of charge;
  • simple ceremony (€ 180);
  • elaborate ceremony (€ 750).
