Getting Married in Ireland ~ Legalities

Getting married in ireland,  it sounds romantic, intriguing and whimsical.  Who wouldn't want to get married with a Castle in the background, on a beautiful white sand beach in a quiet cove,  or in a formal Garden with sculpted hedges and blooming flowers.

 

However, Romantic visions aside, getting married in Ireland takes some work.  It will take some extra effort and planning. It may even necessitate a pre-planning trip.

Allow yourself plenty of time before your wedding date to ensure everything goes smoothly. Do not wait until 3 months before the wedding to start the notification process for your particular district and type of ceremony.

There are 3 types of wedding ceremony in Ireland:

  • religious (catholic, protestant etc)

  • civil: performed by a state representative or a registrar

  • non-religious ceremony.

 

We will outline the rules below:

  • For civil ceremonies, you must register with the registrar of the county in which you intend to marry

  • If you wish to marry at a venue outside of the registry office, check that it is licensed for civil ceremonies, or you will have to organize this

  • Registrars only perform ceremonies outside the registry office on prescribed days at certain times, and incur extra cost. Each county office has its own rules, check with your chosen office on the details.

  • Civil ceremonies are performed by civil registrars from Monday to Friday, only, never at weekends.

Humanist Ceremony

 

A humanist wedding ceremony is a secular celebration. The ceremony is flexible and designed to suit each individual couple. It may include handfastings, poetry, readings, vows written from the heart and other traditions suited to your culture

  • Since April 2013, when the Civil Registration Amendment Act 2012 came into force, couples have been offered the opportunity to legally marry in a humanist ceremony, with the officiant a celebrants accredited by the Humanist Association of Ireland.

  • As with religious ceremonies, each couple must give notice to the Civil Registrar of Marriage a minimum of 3 months in advance.

  • To discuss arranging a humanist wedding, you should contact a celebrant directly

  • The cost for getting married in Ireland is �150 or about $217.00.

  • Send a notice to the Republic of Ireland of your intention to wed. Do this 3 months before the wedding is to take place. This written notice should be sent to the district's wedding registrar where you want the wedding to take place. You can apply for an exception at the High Court Office or the Family Circuit Court, but these exceptions are not given on a regular basis.

  • Meet with the appropriate registrar to supply the necessary documentation before the marriage takes place. The registrar you visit with will depend on the wedding's district as well as whether you are having a civil or religious ceremony.

    • Protestant and civil marriages will be handled by a separate registrar than Roman Catholic marriages.

  • If you are divorced, you are not allowed to marry in a Roman Catholic church, but you may still be married in another church.

  • Civil ceremonies are an alternative for those who cannot or don't want to have a religious ceremony.
