    The wedding

    So you love the idea of getting married in Ireland but you're wondering when is the best time for a wedding? Luckily for you, Ireland is blessed with four distinct seasons, each with its own beauty. Yes, summer is beautiful but imagine the soft greens of spring, the vivid foliage of autumn and the roaring fires of winter. There’s no such thing as a bad time to tie the knot here!

    Speaking of tying the knot, did you know that the origin of that phrase is thought to come from the ancient Celtic ceremony of handfasting, where cords were wrapped around the couple’s hands to signify union? Maybe you'll decide to bring this ancient ritual into your own ceremony.

    Alternatively, you can choose from church weddings, civil ceremonies, simple blessings or humanist celebrations... there are so many ways to get married in Ireland, you're sure to find the perfect option for your big day.
