Got this from www.groireland.ie 2.2 MARRIAGE BY RELIGIOUS CEREMONY Marriages by religious ceremony may be performed according to the customs and ceremonies of the church or religious body which is carrying out the ceremony. However, all the civil requirements set out in Section 1 must first be complied with and the couple must have been issued with a Marriage Registration Form by a registrar which they must show to the person solemnising the marriage. The solemniser must also be a registered solemniser, nominated by his or her church or religious body, and it is the responsibility of the couple to ensure that the person they wish to solemnise their marriage is on the Register of Solemnisers. Click here to check Register of Solemnisers Temporary registrations of solemnisers of religious marriages are possible for those who only wish to solemnise a specific marriage or to solemnise marriages for a specific period of time. The venue for a religious marriage is a matter for the authorities of the church or religious body under whose auspices the marriage is being performed. All marriages, civil or religious, must take place at venues which are open to the public The ceremony must be performed in the presence of two witnesses who are both over 18 years of age. Both parties must make two declarations:- a) that neither of them knows of any impediment to the marriage; and b) that they accept each other as husband and wife. [b:2o8xiocz]At the end of the ceremony, the solemniser, the couple, and the witnesses must all sign the MRF. The completed MRF should be given to a registrar (not necessarily the registrar who issued it) within 1 month of the ceremony, so that the marriage can be civilly registered. Please note that you will not be able to obtain a civil marriage certificate until such time as the MRF has been returned to a registrar and the marriage is civilly registered.[/b:2o8xiocz]

Thanks Tiredbride So basically I have to go to the priest myself and get the papers we signed on the day and give this to a Registrar within a month of the wedding? Where does the registrar be ?!! Oh God, I am a liitle confused!! If this isnt done within the month what does it mean? If you dont do it does it mean your marriage isnt reconised?!!!Sorry for all the questions xx

If you did I don't know if this apply's to you, however you could give one of the registrars a buzz and check - here's the list for you to find the one nearest to you: http://www.groireland.ie/registrars.htm

We got married about 2 months ago and all we had to do was take the form (register) we signed at the wedding to our local registrar (the HSE place where we went to register our intention to marry 3 months before wedding), paid a small fee and got our actual marriage cert printed there and then
