The Civil Registration Act 2004 requires all couples planning a marriage ceremony in Ireland to register their intent of marriage with the State at least three calendar months prior to their wedding date. This is currently done by setting up an appointment with a Civil Registration Service Registrar and attending together in person – currently, couples must telephone an office or call in person to set up an appointment.
From the 12th November 2012, the Civil Registration Service is launching a new online appointment booking system. This new and additional access channel will allow couples to book notification of intention to marry appointments in any Civil Registration Service office around the country provided they have access to the internet.
When booking their appointment couples will be informed of what they need to bring, how long their appointment will last, and this will all be done online.
For couples where one or both parties are resident abroad, they should contact the office by telephone to book their appointment.
To notify the Registrar of your intention to marry you may book a Marriage Notification appointment at www.crsappointments.ie
