On agreement with the local Registrar, non residents of Ireland can post in their marriage notification to the Registrar, but they are required to attend a meeting with the Registrar at least 5 days before the marriage to complete their declarations of no impediment and produce the necessary documentation and particulars, and be issued with their Marriage Registrar Form (MRF) - the Irish equivalent of a Marriage License. This is the case for both Religious and Civil marriages and partnerships in Ireland. A Religious Ceremony may also require additional meetings with the Priest in advance of the ceremony.
So, if you are looking for a magical, romantic destination for your wedding that you and your guests will treasure for a lifetime, Ireland should definitely be top of your list!
