How to register a marriage in Ireland
How you register your marriage will vary, depending on the type of ceremony you have.
The registrar who married you will register the marriage.
Religious or secular marriage
Bring the marriage registration form to any civil registration service. You must do this within 1 month of the date of marriage.
The timeframe to return your marriage registration form has been extended due to the coronavirus pandemic. Under normal circumstances the marriage registration form should be returned to your local civil registration service within one month of your marriage. This timeframe has been removed and you can post the form during the pandemic if you wish or you can wait until the pandemic is over. We advise you to send the form by registered or tracked post
Fee for registering a marriage
Registering a marriage in Ireland is free. There is a charge for buying a marriage certificate.
Marriages outside Ireland
Some Irish citizens choose to get married abroad. If you did, the registration of your marriage will be in the country where the marriage took place.
The civil registration service does not register marriages that took place abroad.
