Before getting married in Ireland, you must register your intent to marry at least three months prior to your proposed wedding date.

Check out our full guide on registering intent to marry in Ireland, right here.

Let’s check out what documents you should have prepared before registering your intent to marry in Ireland.

What documents do I/we need to register our intent to marry?

There are several documents you both will need to register your intent to marry:

  • PPS Number
  • Passport
  • Birth certificate
  • Proof of address (original and a photocopy from within the last 3 months)
  • Final divorce, dissolution, or nullity decrees (if applicable)
  • Spouse or civil partner death certificate (if applicable)
  • Immigration status evidence (should you or your partner not be an Irish citizen or citizen of another EU state)
  • A completed data capture form

What else is needed?

You will, of course, need to have the €200 notification fee handy, or €50 for those already in a civil partnership but who now wish to marry.

You will also need the following:

  • Details of your date and location of the intended date of marriage
  • Details of proposed celebrant or solemniser
  • The names and dates of birth of your two proposed witnesses
