The following information is supplied by the Marriage Registrar of the Republic of Ireland

MARRIAGE IN THE REPUBLIC OF IRELAND

Since the commencement of Part 6 of the Civil Registration Act 2004 in November 2007, anyone notifying a Registrar of their intention to get married in Ireland must give 3 months notification in person to the Registrar.

When you make the appointment with the Registrar you will be informed what information and documents you need to bring with you. Generally, you and your intended spouse will be required to bring the following:

  • Passports as identification.
  • Birth Certificates (must bear an apostille stamp if not issued by the Civil Registration Service in Ireland; if the certificate are not in English or Irish,  a certified translation of the birth certificate is required)
  • Original final divorce decrees in respect of all previous divorces if either of you is divorced. Further information will be required if it was a foreign divorce and you will be required to submit a certified English translation of the divorce decree
  • Original dissolutions in respect of all previous civil partnerships if either of you has a civil partnership dissolution
  • Final decree of nullity and a letter from the relevant court confirming that no appeal was lodged, if either of you was in a civil partnership or marriage that was annulled by an Irish Court
  • Deceased spouse’s death certificate and previous civil marriage certificate if either of you is widowed
  • PPS Numbers

You will also have to provide information about the intended marriage such as:

  • Whether it will be a civil, secular or religious ceremony
  • The intended date and location of the marriage
  • Details of the proposed solemniser of the marriage
  • The names and dates of birth of the two proposed witnesses

You will also have to pay a notification fee.

When you attend the Registrar you will have to make a declaration of no impediment.

The Registrar will issue an acknowledgement to both of you and the proposed solemniser of the marriage confirming the date of receipt of notification. This does not give you permission to marry.

If all the information required has been supplied and there is no impediment to the marriage, the Registrar will issue you with a Marriage Registration Form.

A Marriage Registration Form (MRF) is like a marriage licence. It gives authorisation for a couple to marry and you require one in order to get married in Ireland. Providing there is no impediment to the marriage, the Registrar will issue a MRF. If you bring all the documentation and information required to the meeting with the Registrar, the Registrar might be able to issue the MRF immediately.

Marriage Ceremony

The marriage ceremony is solemnised by the Registrar, who is on the Register of Solemnisers. The ceremony must be performed in the presence of two witnesses aged 18 or over. During the ceremony you and your intended spouse must make two declarations:

  • That you do not know of any impediment to the marriage
  • That you accept each other as husband and wife

Interpreting Services

If either of you, your intended spouse or either of the two witnesses does not have sufficient knowledge of the language in which the ceremony is being held to understand the ceremony, then you are required to bring an interpreter with you.
