Church unceremoniously dumped by the alter as couples opt for civil affairs

A survey of newly engaged couples has revealed that more and more Irish couples are avoiding Church weddings in favour of more personal and intimate civil ceremonies.

Leading wedding singer Ingrid Madsen has revealed that a survey of couples she has been in contact with has revealed that over the last number of years are ditching the church affair and holding civil ceremonies and guests are delighted!

“It’s a common theme, churches can be difficult to deal with, restrictive and often miles away from the reception that evening. Couples are making their big days more personal and more about them and their families and friends. It makes perfect sense especially given the cultural diversity Ireland is so lucky to embrace”

Ingrid Madsen has been performing at weddings and civil ceremonies for 15 years and is widely regarded as one of Ireland’s finest vocalists. Ingrid also performs with Picturehouse front man Dave Browne in the Controversial Allstars and has recently released her own original material under the name “Ping”.
