CIVIL CEREMONIES & BLESSINGS
The Ashdown Park Hotel is registered and licensed for Civil Ceremonies
Things to know before you start: (courtesy of OneFabDay)
Venues for civil ceremonies have to be pre-approved and licensed. They must be fixed structures and meet various legal criteria WHICH WE DO – in practice this means you cannot get married in Ireland on a beach, cliff, woods or basically anywhere outside.
Only registrars (civil servants) can legally marry people at non-religious ceremonies in Ireland. (As of 2013 you can also have a secular ceremony organised by The Humanist Association)
Allow plenty of time to register with your registry office – a minimum of 3 months is required but there is usually a longer lead time (in Dublin it can be about 7 months) so plan ahead, or you may end up getting married on a Monday at 9.30am!
You can only get married by a registrar in Ireland from Monday to Friday (no weekend ceremonies unfortunately).
If you want to get married in a venue outside of the registry office, only particular days and times will be available, these are set by the local office and vary from county to county.
