This is the first year in Stockholm for me and my girlfriend. We have a plan of holding a wedding ceremony in the Stockholm City Hall. Is there anybody who has an experience there?

I have several question about the wedding ceremony:
1. Is there a waiting list for the wedding ceremony application in City Hall? I mean, for example, should I wait for at least half year for my turn?
2. I know that the Certificate of No Impediment offered by Sweden Tax Office is required. Are there any other documents are needed for this certificate?
3. Does the procedure of application work like this: contact City Hall for application=>wait in the queue=>hand in the required document=>wedding ceremony?

Thank you very much!

I think you can find the information you need on this page (in English further down on the page) http://www.parvis.stockholm.se/

1) There is a online booking and sometimes the waiting period more than 4 months, but i guess that depends on when you plan to get married (more people wants to get married in the spring and summer than in the autumn). You could also contact them here: E-mail: vigsel@stockholm.se Phone 08-508 29 330

2 and 3) I think you book a date online, send the "Intyg for Hinderspr

You could also be asked to provide a certificate of no impediment from your home country. Call them and check.

You need to get the certificate of no impediment first, but when you apply for a time slot at city hall you can select "interested in cancellations" or something of that nature. They then email you periodically with newly available slots. We did this last spring and had a spot on a suitable date within a few weeks; you'd be amazed how many cancellations come up!

Of course this only works in practice if you're doing it very small scale so can plan last minute.
