Full of stunning and diverse scenery, there's mountains, lakes, beaches, and rolling hills to serve as backdrops for your wedding photos and with a myriad of stunning venues in which to host a reception or celebratory party, weddings abroad in Croatia can suit the most discerning of couples.

Marriage Requirements


Most couples wishing to get married in Croatia will have to settle for a civil ceremony, since only Roman Catholic weddings are performed in Croatia. An application needs to be made to the registry office in the area in which you want to get married, at least 30-45 days before the intended date of marriage and documentation will have to be sent at the same time. This includes valid passports, birth certificates which are no older than 6 months, a certificate of non impediment and a certificate of custom and law which can only be issued by the embassy of your country in Croatia. Full names of both witnesses together with copies of their passports will also have to be forwarded. The certificates of custom and law and of non impediment both have to be certified in Zagreb by the Croatian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
