Arranging a Marriage

Congratulations on your decision to get married. It’s an exciting time with lots of wedding planning ahead!

To arrange a marriage please contact the Parish Office (056) 772 1253 – 3 months notice is required.

While you need only give three months notice of your intention to marry it is common practice for a couple to book the church a long time in advance.
So it is important to contact the Parish Office to make sure that the church is available on the day you require.

You will also need to participate in a marriage preparation course which is a lovely way for you as a couple to take a serious look at your own relationship. These courses are organised by Accord (the Catholic Marriage Advisory Agency). Click here for Course details. Marriage Preparation Course.

While we will do everything we can to ensure you get the course you would prefer, it is advisable that couples book at least 2-6 months in advance in order to avoid disappointment. Due to the popularity of our courses, many of them tend to get booked up very quickly.


Your decision to get married is a sign of your love and of your desire to be together as husband and wife. ACCORD in helping you to prepare for your Marriage is privileged to be part of your journey and offers you its continued support throughout your married life.
