The ceremony is a very important part of your special day and our suites, tastefully decorated with chair covers, floral arrangements, especially designed candelabra and red carpet, create an intimate feeling for your special day.


When planning your Civil Ceremony or Civil Partnership it is important to look into a number of conditions required by the HSE in advance of the marriage ceremony.
If you are getting married by Civil Ceremony you must approach the Registrar of Civil Marriages for the district in which you intend to marry for information on how to proceed. There is no requirement to live in the district where you wish to get married. There is a requirement to give 3 months notification to a registrar however it is advisable to apply as far in advance as possible to guarantee requested dates.
We are happy to assist any couple with any aspect of arranging their Civil Ceremony or Partnership.
