* What do we need to do to have our Civil Ceremony Wedding at Dundrum House Hotel, Golf & Leisure Resort?
The first step the Wedding couple must take is to apply for approval to the Health Services Executive Civil Registration Office. Each couple must apply directly; the hotel may not apply on their behalf.
* How will approval be granted to us?
Approval is granted to each individual marriage on a case by case basis and is determined by a member of the Health Services Executive Civil Registration Office. A member of this team will meet with the Wedding couple and review their application. When they are satisfied that both the hotel and the wedding couple meet the requirements, approval is then granted.
* How long in advance should we apply?
Applications should be to the Health Services Executive Office made at least three months before the wedding, however, it is advisable to apply as far in advance as possible to guarantee requested dates. Approvals will be granted for civil ceremonies from July 2008 onwards.
* What does the hotel have to do?
The hotel must complete a declaration form for each individual application and also ensure that the standards set out by the Health Service Executive Civil Registration Office are adhered to at all times.
* How many people can we have at our ceremony?
The maximum capacity for the civil ceremony at the hotel is 80 guests.
* Where will the civil ceremony take place?
The civil ceremony will take place in the Bishopswood Suite at the hotel. The Wedding couple are welcome to view the hotel by contacting our Wedding Coordinator.
* How much does registration cost?
There is a notification fee of €150.00 which must be paid at the first meeting with the member of the Health Service Executive Civil Registration Office. There is also a charge of €24.45 per hour for the Registrar on the day of the ceremony. The Registrar is required to be in the building for one hour before and one hour after the ceremony so there will be a cost of €48.90, and the €24.45 will apply for each additional hour the registrar will be in the building.
* Can my guests have a glass of champagne during the ceremony?
Unfortunately no food or beverage may be served or consumed in the ceremony room for one hour before, during or one hour after the ceremony.
