For modern couples who want to be legally married in Ireland it can be very difficult to know where to start. Especially if you would like to be married in less than 3 months. You can relax, there is a process in place for urgent reasons to be married in less than 3 months, and although it is only recommended in certain cases, it is fairly straightforward and easy enough once you satisfy the criteria.

You must both be living in Ireland and both must be Irish (or UK) citizens. This is to ensure that the marriage is not part of any visa scam.

Most Common Reason for Approval

In our experience the most common reason for being approved to be married in Ireland in less than 3 months is when one spouse to be has been diagnosed with a terminal illness. Permission will be given on compassionate grounds, and genuine evidence from a medical doctor registered in Ireland must be provided. The doctor and the terminal diagnosis will be verified and if genuine, the marriage will be approved.

There are some other reasons, which we can’t discuss online as we don’t want to encourage any visa wedding scams. Neither the court system or the HSE want to be bombarded with requests for weddings in less than 3 months.
