Win A Wedding Ceremony!


On May 23rd 2015 Ireland became the first country in the world to legalise same sex marriage by popular vote and it was a time to celebrate. Now, several months later all of the final legal requirements have been fulfilled and the Marriage Equality Bill has been signed into law and enshrined in the constitution of our nation.

As of today any adult couple in Ireland can marry and celebrate the love they have for each other regardless of sexual orientation and we at Smock Alley Theatre think that that is something to celebrate. To do that we are offering one very lucky LGBT couple the chance to win a beautiful wedding ceremony in Smock Alley Theatre in the heart of Dublin City.

All you have to do to be in with a chance to win is give us your “Ode to Love”. Tell us why you love the person you are with with a poem, a story, a sonnet, a dance, a video, whatever it is you want!

Email your entries to odetolove@smockalley.com. Closing date for entries is December 20th 2015.  Smock Alley Event Manager Conor Byrne, Colm O’Gorman from Amnesty International and Betty Stuart from Lullabelle Wedding Design will select the lucky couple and the winner will be announced on Christmas Eve.
