Tipperary Heritage Sites May Undertake Civil Marriage Ceremonies

Rock-of-CashelThe Office of Public Works (OPW) are offering engaged couples, who are intending to get married in a future civil ceremony, the option of ‘tying the knot’ at some of Ireland’s well known heritage sites.

This move could now mean that some of Ireland’s most beautiful and atmospheric attractions could be made available for a couple’s big day.

Minister of State Brian Hayes said the OPW wants to open up key sites like the Rock of Cashel, latter situated here in Co Tipperary to more visitors, by offering a greater variety of uses.

To this end OPW staffs are currently understood to be consulting closely with the Health Service Executive (HSE) to identify the suitability of various visitor attractions.

All approved sites will only be the venue for the official civil ceremony itself, and not for any celebrations intended later on the day.

The mention of possible costs for holding such civil ceremonies in these romantic and historical venues has not, as yet, been fully discussed, if indeed approval is ever finally agreed. However the advent of such an agreement could see many celebrities worldwide, latter undertaking Civil Marriage Ceremonies, now deciding to visit Irish atmospheric heritage sites.

The current number one request to wedding photographers by couples living in Tipperary is to be photographed with the Rock of Cashel in the background.
