How To Book Your Civil Ceremony
And Other Important Information

 You, the couple, must attend in person at the office of the Registrar by prior appointment, to give at least three months notification of intention to marry. At this consultation, you will be presented with a marriage registration form. 

While only three months’ notice is required by law, it is advisable to contact the registrar well before the intended date of marriage in order to receive a timely appointment.  At this meeting with the registrar, you will be asked for the following: Full evidence of name, address, age, marital status and nationality.

In general, you will be asked to produce passports as I.D, original final decrees in respect of the previous divorce (if applicable) and P.P.S. numbers. The registrar will advise you if any additional official documentation is required. 

You will also be asked for the details of the marriage, the intended date, the names and date of births of witnesses and any details of the wedding.

 The marriage notification can be given to any registrar and the HSE will advise you of the contact details that are closest to you.  You will then need to meet our Wedding Coordinator who will complete the particulars on the documentation that apply to the venue.

Contact The 4* Dromhall Hotel to check the availability of dates in conjunction with The Registrar. The Registrar will conduct Civil Marriage Ceremonies in the Shelbourne Suite, the Abbey or the Deerhunter Suite – all approved venues within The Dromhall hotel.
