Church Wedding

Since Croatia’s state religion is Catholicism for getting married in Croatia requires you to perform your wedding venue in a catholic church and you cannot choose a church of another religion.
Before selecting a married in Croatian church the first step is for foreigners should register a legal marriage in their native country since Roman Catholic weddings do not enjoy a legal status in Croatia.
Wedding Documentation Procedures:

  • you should acknowledge your local parish in advance about the exact date and time of your wedding venue (some couples choose to or suggested to enroll in a pre-marriage)
  • inter-church documents needs to be exchanged by your bishop to the Croatian bishop as well, this is a type of “No Objection Certificate” which is a must doc to get married outside your native country (this document is standard and recognized as “Litterae Testimoniales “(testimonial letters) or “Nihil obstat”)
    *So, this is a type of “No Objection Certificate” which is a must doc to get married outside your native country.

The mandatory documents:

  • a “formal letter” with the permission of wedding ceremony in the church on a particular date. This letter is the wedding permission letter signed from your parish priest
  • in Croatia, if you have been divorced in the past, you cannot choose to remarry in the Catholic Church and you need to deposit a “Baptismal certificate” showing that you have never been married before
  • if you have been enrolled in pre-marriage courses, you need to deposit “Pre-Cana certificate”
  • a legal document signed, sealed and stamped by the local bishop office “Pre-nuptial investigation form”

*Note: To avoid delays and complications, your local parish should send these documents to Croatia in the timespan of 3-6 months before your wedding date.
