Ceremony Options & Location
The most requested ceremony here in Italy is a civil ceremony. Not only is it legally binding but it can take place in some stunning locations. From romantic medieval cloisters in Sorrento, the colourful outdoor terrace in Postiano to the breath-taking and intimate 12th century palazzo and gardens in Ravello; there really is a style of venue to suit every individual requirement and taste.
Getting this right is fundamental but please do not worry as we are here to assist and guide you every step of the way. To get legally married in Italy, the bride and groom need to obtain the appropriate paperwork depending on their nationality and the requirements of the Italian authorities. We will assist you every step of the way with this process and even offer a translation service so there is no need to feel overwhelmed.
Please note that the legal paperwork process cannot be started until 6 months before your actual ceremony (3 months for Scottish residents).
These are fast becoming a popular choice of ceremony here in Italy as no paperwork process is required.
As this is not a ‘legally’ binding wedding (most couples will get married in their home countries prior to arriving in Italy) it can take place in a range of venues. From private villas to hotel terraces and even on a beach; your choice of venue is wide open! A symbolic ceremony can be tailored especially to suit your own beliefs so whether that means incorporating your religion or just celebrating your love for each other, together we can create the right ceremony for you!
If you are going to have a Catholic ceremony then please note that you will need the assistance of your parish priest. The paperwork for a religious wedding must be started at least 6 8 months prior to the wedding. Catholic ceremony’s for non-residents are not permitted here in Sorrento and can only take place on the Amalfi Coast.
