A Civil Wedding in Italy is an unforgettable and unique experience.

Italian Town Halls are lovely: historical Palazzi, romantic villas, medieval castles, or panoramic terraces overlooking the sea. The choice of venues in Italy is very extensive, and they will offer the perfect setting for your Italian Civil Ceremony.
The Civil Wedding will be officiated by an Italian authority (a Mayor or one of his representatives) and will be legally recognized in your country. An interpreter will also assist you.
The procedures and the documents required may vary according to your country of origin.
A Civil Ceremony lasts about twenty minutes, and you will be asked to bring two best men or maids of honor who will have to be above the age of 18.
The ceremony might also be held outdoors, in specific locations approved by the Italian authorities. Many town halls have beautiful gardens or terraces, and the choice of outdoor venues is also vibrant.
Civil ceremonies in Italy can also be personalized with music, poetry, readings, and of course, personal vows.
Please contact us for more detailed information, and we will be happy to help you fulfill all the legal procedure.
