Civil Weddings

Despite the problematic Italian bureaucracy, civil weddings are among the most popular choices for destination marriages and elopements in Italy. Civil weddings in Tuscany can take place virtually anywhere. For years now, municipalities let couples arrange civil rites outside of cold town halls. You can pronounce your vows and exchange rings in the gardens of the most beautiful Italian villas, surrounded by your friends and family, with the civil officer attending the ceremony. Or you can choose the courtyard of a castle; you’ll find many of them in Tuscany! So, in addition to having a fairytale ceremony, you can enjoy the rest of the reception in magical and legendary places. You won’t regret having crossed the ocean to get married in Italy.

Among many lovely places to get married in Florence, civil weddings take place at Palazzo Vecchio, in the heart of the town. For the civil ceremony, you can take advantage of the Salone dei Cinquecento or the Sala Rossa, with its walls covered in red damask fabric. There is no more artistic place for a photoshoot; the centre of Florence and its wonders are the perfect backdrops for wedding photos and romantic walks after the ceremony.

If you wish a civil ceremony for your Beach Wedding in Italy, Forte dei Marmi and its golden beaches are happy to welcome lovebirds from all over the world and pamper them with fairytale sunsets and fabulous receptions with the sound of the waves in the background.
