Once you’ve registered your civil ceremony venue, you will receive a marriage registration form.

You’ll usually be asked to post these details to your chosen registrar. For more information on the ins and outs of holding a civil ceremony in Ireland, you can view the HSE’s guidelines.
Now that you’ve got all of that pesky paperwork out of the way, it’s time to get organizing the fun stuff – the music. Woohoo.
When it comes to civil ceremonies, the good news is that you’ll have way more scope and flexibility with your musical entertainment than you would with a traditional wedding.
