Weddings in Italy

I would love to inspire and support you couples on your special day

Civil Ceremonies

In English and Italian and even a mixed language ceremony at no extra cost to you.

Usually takes longer to organise beforehand, this legal ceremony takes place under a roof of location authorised by the Italian government. The ceremony is usually carried out by the local major or registrar and is legally recognised in your own country.

The ceremony is a combination of Italian civils code and vows, and can be personalised with your additional readings. An Interpreter is required by Italian law and we are here to help out with this.

We can make everything else happen together,

there really are no limits as it is

This gives you so much more choice in location and setting and complete freedom to tailor your ceremony to include as many readings religious or non-religious, music, poems and any rituals entirely your choice.
