Once you’ve decided to marry, you can begin to discuss your joint vision for your ceremony- what time of year, your location, indoors or outdoors, estimate numbers, what vibe would you like and who are your key guests.
For a legal marriage, you will need to Register your Intent to Marry with the HSE at least 3 months prior to your wedding date, and you will need to ensure that your venue is acceptable to the HSE. I will give you more guidance on this as we work together but the main thing for now is that for legal solemnising, it will need to have an identifiable address and be open to the public.
Wherever you choose, I am happy to work with you to create a ceremony that is unique, reflects you both as individuals and as a couple (and a family, if you have children to include!)
My fee for this service is €800, plus 0.40c/km mileage for ceremonies outside the greater Dublin area. This is usually paid in two instalments, a €400 booking fee to secure your date, with the balance of €400 (plus milage/accommodation if applicable) in advance of your date.
Everything you need for a fully bespoke, legal ceremony, crafted entirely just for you. I provide unlimited support and guidance in the lead-up to your ceremony, and will fully guide you towards the ceremony style that best reflects you both; as a couple, as individuals, and as a family.
We can discuss this in more depth when we meet, but for now please know that it is my great joy to create a ceremony which is deeply meaningful and personal to you, and so that your family and friends feel deeply connected and included during it.
This might mean that you’d like it to be very lighthearted with touches of humour, or maybe you’re planning an intimate ceremony in the presence of your nearest and dearest– you tell me what you’re aiming for and I will take it from there.
Every aspect of your ceremony is chosen by you, and I will question, guide and prompt you throughout the process, until I have gathered the information I need for your ceremony.
