Getting Married Abroad

More and more couples are chosing to be married abroad.  If you are choosing a Church ceremony abroad, you follow the same procedure as getting married in Ireland.

For the civil requirements the couple should make contact with the Department of Foreign Affairs and the Embassy of the particular country to ascertain the proper procedures. This should be done in good time.
