Civil Registration Offices in Ireland
To apply for a marriage licence or to make a notification of your intention to marry, you need to make direct contact with the Civil Registration Office in the district where you will marry. It is highly recommended that you contact the registry office well in advance of your intended wedding date. This is particularly the case if you wish to marry in a location other than the registry office itself. For historic reasons, most registry offices in Ireland are located in Health Authority offices or hospitals. These are not particularly elegant places to marry - they are essentially office blocks or anonymous administrative buildings.
Civil Marriages in Ireland
Although many people would like to get married on a beach or in an historic castle in Ireland, this is just not legally possible. For now, if you want a wedding ceremony in such a location, it will have to be a symbolic one only. Until recently, legal civil marriage in Ireland could only take place in a registry office, however a change in the law now means it is possible to marry in another location, provided:
- The location is indoors
- The wedding takes place in an area to which the public have access to
- The location has been issued with a license by the authorities
While this means that it is now possible to legally marry in a hotel or other indoor location, it does not include private homes or outdoor locations. Many hotels and some historic buildings have applied for and received licenses, however it is also possible for a couple intending to marry to apply for a licence for a location which does not already have one. The couple are responsible for all the expenses of the official celebrant who officiates at an off-site wedding.
