Civil ceremonies may be shorter, but are no less special!
Enhance your Civil Ceremony with your personal choice of songs.
See below for an idea of where music can be added to create the most atmosphere at your service.
A civil registrar ceremony is a non-religious legal marriage ceremony performed by a government official or functionary.
Civil ceremony packages start at €450* which includes both Joanna and her accompanist.
*Travel 1HR outside of Dublin is charged per mile. We do our best to keep this fee as small as possible for all our couples.
In some offices you will be asked to confirm the readings /music for your ceremony, and your intention to go ahead about one month before the ceremony, by post with the registrar who will carry out your ceremony so do make sure it is permitted in advance.
