Request for a wedding ceremony

The Ceremonial Services of Sidmennt, Icelandic Humanist Association, offers services at various celebrations, including weddings. The ceremonies have an atmosphere of dignity, joy and personal experience. There is no religious content but they include ethical message with values that all humans share. It is the humanistic approach. From May 3, 2013 our celebrants have had full legal authority to conduct marriages. If the couple has a legal residency outside of Iceland a certificate of "No Impediments" has to be required from the District Commissioner prior to the ceremony. (See District Commissioner's web page.) Residents from the Nordic countries can bring their local certificate of "No Impediments" from their country, like the "Hindersprövning" from Sweden. All costs should be paid in advance. Special requests or arrangements should be mentioned in the "Further information" box at the bottom of this form. Further inquires can be made at
