Civil Ceremonies at Ballinacurra House.

In Ireland, you can choose whether to marry in a religious ceremony or a civil ceremony and, here at Ballinacurra, we can help you with the decision!

Whether you’re planning a destination wedding or you live in Cork, Ballinacurra is a great location for your celebrations. Close to Kinsale, a medieval town known as the culinary capital of Ireland, Ballinacurra is close to many beautiful chapels if you wish to include your beliefs in your ceremony. However, if you are looking for an alternative wedding ceremony, you could consider the benefits of having a civil ceremony at Ballinacurra House.

Ballinacurra is a stunning venue for your wedding reception, but if you choose to hold your ceremony in the beautiful Georgian Manor House as well, you’ll guarantee that your wedding will be truly spectacular.

Prolong the Party with a Destination Wedding

A venue that allows you to extend your celebrations is perfect for a memorable weekend of wedding fun! At Ballinacurra, all bookings are for exclusive use, so your party will have free reign of the property and its 40-acre, extensive grounds for the weekend, as well as the services of a personal chef and staff!

If you decide to have a civil ceremony at the property, your guests can just relax and settle in, without worrying about transport or getting to the church on time! All you need will be on hand and as well as the extensive support of the Ballinacurra staff, you can have experienced hairdressers and beauticians to visit so that you don’t need to go anywhere!

Four Benefits of a Civil Ceremony

1.    It’s practical. You can have your ceremony and reception in the same venue and instead of a rush to the car park midway through the day, you and your guests can relax on the lawn with a drink!

2.    It’s individual. You can make your ceremony as unique as you are, choosing readings that reflect your personalities and even creating your own vows if you wish.

3.    It’s versatile. If you want to get married by your rabbi, priest or humanist celebrant, you can do so at Ballinacurra. Anyone who is approved to conduct marriage ceremonies in a venue other than a church can marry you, as well as a Government appointed HSE Registrar.

4.    It’s memorable. Ask your loved ones about the best weddings they’ve ever been to and you’ll find that they remember all the little details that make a wedding unique. A civil ceremony allows you to include all the special extras in your day and gives you more time to relax and enjoy the occasion.
