Once the couple have booked the church, and met the priest who is to perform the ceremony, it is necessary, by civil law, to make an appointment to meet the Civil Register to give notice of their intention to marry. This must be done at least three months prior to the wedding.  Documents needed include Baptismal & Confirmation Certs, Letters of Freedom if either couple have lived more than six months in another parish. Couples are recommended to engage in a pre-marriage course. Please contact for details of pre-marriage courses.
