Year on year we are seeing couples from all over the world who have chosen Ireland as their ideal wedding destination.

Wedding videography locations in Tipperary, ireland

We’re not blowing our own trumpet here, but Ireland is one of THE most romantic destinations you can possibly imagine. Castles, loughs, folklore and scenery all combine to make Ireland the perfect choice for the most important day of your life.

Let’s take a look at some of the steps you will need to take to plan your Irish wedding.

Some of the legalities:
To marry in Ireland you must be at least 18 old.
Should you wish to marry in a church, this must be your first wedding.
Three months notice is required to be given to a registrar in person so you will have to make two trips.
A €200 fee will be required to obtain your marriage registration form from the registrar.
You will require passports and birth certificates.
For civil ceremonies / non-religious ceremonies for those who may be remarrying, you will require official documentation that supports your entitlement to remarry (divorce papers, dissolution papers or death certificates).

Getting married in a Church:
For those of you who wish to have a Catholic ceremony, you will need to ensure the following:

That you and your intended spouse are confirmed Catholics (exceptions may be granted, however this will need to be discussed with your chosen priest).

As well as the points listed in the previous section you will also need to provide a baptismal cert, confirmation cert and a letter of freedom from your current parish.

As with all Catholic marriages you will be required to undertake a marriage preparation course. Your chosen priest or a registrar will be happy to provide recommendations.

Planning the Wedding:
Once you have all the legalities in place, it’s truly time to start planning your dream Irish wedding.

Ireland has a wealth of wedding venues for you to choose from, whether you’re looking forward to a fairy tale castle or a lakeside retreat, you will find that your options are many.

Because you will be doing a lot of your planning from outside the country, we would highly recommend hiring the services of a professional wedding planner. A strong wedding planner will be able to organise everything from the entertainment and décor right through to transportation, beauty treatments and wedding videographer hire.
