Getting married

In Kungsbacka municipality, it is possible to get married either in the wedding room in the city hall or at another location within the municipality that is agreed upon when an appointment for marriage is made.

Civil weddings

Special wedding officiants are appointed by the county administrative board to carry out civil weddings. The wedding officiant informs the tax authority of the marriage. The wedding takes place according to a fixed form.

Special requests 

It is most common to get married during the times that the city hall is open, Mondays from 8:00am – 6:00pm, Tuesdays - Thursdays from 8:00am – 5:00pm and Fridays from 8:00am – 3:00pm. If you have a request for a special wedding officiant or you wish to be married on another day or time, it is usually possible to arrange this.

The wedding costs 500 SEK per couple from August 1 2017. Reservations made before August 1 are free of charge. Payment is made when you get in contact with our administrator. If the wedding takes place outside of the city hall you will need to pay compensation for travel expenses.
