Civil Weddings

Legally binding civil weddings in Italy.

Today many couples decide for civil ceremonies. Most of them in fact are of different religions and prefer to have a legal wedding that can be recognized in their country with no religious meaning. The dream of most couples for their wedding in Italy is to have a romantic ceremony and this is what legal wedding ceremonies in Italy are. Although you must abide by a few rules, rest assured that  civil weddings in Italy can be quite beautiful.

The ceremony must be performed in the town hall, or a building that the government has specifically authorized for marriage ceremonies. While this may sound cold, keep in mind that these town halls, with their rich architectural history, are often more beautiful than the average wedding hall you are used to! Also, there are some unique and beautiful outdoor locations that are government owned, so your options include castles with sea and lake views, as well as Tuscan palazzos and terraces overlooking the Amalfi Coast.

During civil weddings in Italy the town's mayor will perform the service which is a mix of traditional vows as well as other articles pertaining to marriage. It is also possible to personalize your ceremony, as long as the readings required by the Italian government are included. You'll need to have two witnesses present in order to make the ceremony "legal." The ceremony takes between 15 and 25 minutes. Although it is performed in Italian, WeddingItaly wedding planners will act or supply a translator. Your marriage certificate will be valid in all countries as we will make sure you will receive an international marriage form in your language. You should start planning for this ceremony a few months in advance.

There are some legal formalities that will need to be done for civil weddings in Italy, but we will assist you STEP by STEP.

Keep in mind that there are certain dates and holidays during which government buildings are closed. Rest assured, however, that we have been planning civil weddings in Italy for such a long time for couples coming from many countries in the world: we can provide references of past paperwork assistance for almost 80 nations in the world! So you can trust our long experience and great relationships with town halls, registry offices, consulates and embassies.
