Civil Ceremony Arklow Bay
Steps to get married

The Arklow Bay Conference & Leisure Hotel are delighted to cater for Civil Ceremonies, Civil Partnerships and Blessings which take place in our beautiful Asgard Suite or Bay Garden.

These ceremonies are in accordance with the Civil Registration Act 2004 (as amended) and the Marriage Act 2015.

Decide where you want to get married (i.e. in which county) and make an appointment to meet with the registrar in the area you want to get married;

At this meeting you officially notify them you want to get married. By law you must give three months’ notice at this meeting;

You’ll need to tell the registrar the date you want to marry, the venue for your civil ceremony and the name and date of birth of your two witnesses;

Once it’s all processed you’ll receive a marriage registration form, which is the document authorising you to proceed with your marriage.


Well what can I say…

My first visit to the Arklow Bay Hotel was back a couple of years ago and I fell in love with the staff and grounds straight away! The staff go out of there way so much to assist with everything.

We got engaged back in 2018 and Aaron asked me where would you like to get married and I said the Arklow Bay Hotel straight away!   We went to visit the hotel a couple of months later and then 2 months after that again to see the new wedding ball room! Well it was a Yes straight away

We had our wedding 2 weeks ago and it was just the best time! All our guests loved the hotel so much. They all had an amazing time and said the staff where amazing.

Have to give a special shout out to our wedding organiser Dantè and the General Manager Dick. They are just the best. Thank you so much for everything and we can’t wait to visit again ❤️.   We had both our ceremony and reception at the hotel and as a same sex couple we couldn’t have chosen a better spot.
