Things to know about getting married

We have collected the most important information about getting married from

Administration needs to be done in person.


Marrying parties: one man and one woman, they have full legal capacity and they must be at least 16 years of age

Getting married

The marriage takes place in the presence of the best man and the maid of honour in public, in the office of the local government.

Immediately prior to getting married, the registrar re-examines whether there is a legal impediment to the marriage and whether the legal preconditions exist.

The registrar first asks one person by name, then the other: Does he/she declare that he/she is marrying the other party present? If both marrying parties answer „yes” to the question asked, the registrar declares that the parties, called by their married name, are husband and wife in accordance with the Act on: Civil code


If the couple or the best man/maid of honour does not speak Hungarian and the registrar does not understand the foreign language spoken by the couple or the best man/maid of honour, an interpreter can help.

After the mutual declaration, the registrar confirms the marriage and enters the fact of the marriage in the civil registry.

Interpretation by a certified interpreter

Thalia and Balázs recently got married and I was honoured to be able to interpret at the wedding ceremony.

If one of the parties is a non-Hungarian citizen, an interpreter with an interpreter's certificate is required for the marriage.
During a month and a half of a project related to an overhaul of an industrial turbine, it was refreshing to be part of such a rare and touching moment.

Thalia + Balázs- I wish you every happiness!
