Why Cork is perfect for your Civil Ceremony

Some fab reasons to choose Cork for your Civil Ceremony

Picture Perfect

Cork was called the Venice of the North, for all its riverways of the beautiful River Lee. The city boasts 29 bridges within the city, ideal for picturesque Civil Ceremony photographs in the centre of Cork City. Tree flanked avenues such as the North and South Mall mix with stunning Georgian architecture and old city charm, offering unique photo opportunities throughout the city. Gorgeous University grounds, idyllic riverside parks and narrow medieval streets of the Old Town all provide gorgeous backdrop for your civil ceremony photos.

Cork Food Capital of Ireland

What do you want to do the day after your ideal Cork Civil Ceremony? Is the next day as big as the first, or are you looking for a quiet spot where friends and family can meet? Whether you want a full-on hog roast banquet or simple, delicious local fair, the selection is never ending in Cork. From the Farmgate Café in the English Market to hilltop veranda bars in the stunning hotels of Montenotte and St Luke’s.

Fabulous Church Alternatives for your Civil Ceremony Venue

Cork is a city of steeples, from the ornate Finbarr’s Cathedral to the cheery tower of the Shandon bells you are never too far from a church. However, many couples may prefer a hint of the church wedding without the religious aspect and Cork can offer classic, ancient venues for your perfect Civil Ceremony. Deconsecrated medieval churches, to old sea Forts and harbour castles, the city is ripe for the picking when it comes to alternative civil ceremony locations.

Everything’s a walk away!

No matter whether you’re in killer heels or dancing shoes, many of Cork’s civil ceremony venues are a walk away from ideal reception venues. Strolling through the heart of the city with your guests is a truly unique experience with photo ops galore, and perfect stops for refreshments along the way for any thirsty guests! The charm and independent streak in Cork will captivate your guests as they saunter through the Rebel City…if walking doesn’t float your boat, the city has easy access for buses and cars.
