Marriages

Three months notice is required for the marriage of Parishioners no matter where the marriage is to be celebrated.

Couples are required to complete a Pre-Nuptial Enquiry Form in their parish of residence. They must provide a recently issued Certificate of Baptism, and Letter(s) of Freedom from any parish in which they have lived for 6 months or more.  

Any of the Priests will be glad to assist you with these forms. As some of these papers take some time to complete, it is advisable to make an appointment in advance.

All the necessary contact details are given on this site.

All couples are required to attend a Pre-Marriage Course. Details can be obtained by phoning Accord on 051-878333.

Civil Requirements: Couples are required to attend for interview with the Registrar at least three months before their intended marriage.

This must be done by prior appointment. They must be issued with a Marriage Registration Form (M.R.F.) which they will hold and have signed on the day of their wedding, before returning it to the Registrar. The Registrar now requires that couples make a declaration, before or during the marriage ceremony that there is no impediment to their marriage. Registrar's Office: Community Care Centre, Cork Rd., Waterford. Tel 051-842824 or 842825.
