Civil bendings in Italy are available in nearly every city and town that has a town hall.
Most Town Halls are located in historical buildings, charming villas or even a terraced garden that offer a stunning setting for a wedding.
The ceremony lasts about 20 minutes and is performed Italian (and eventually translated by an interpreter) by a Civil Registrar. You can enrich and personalize the ceremony with music, personal vows and readings.
The ceremony begins by reading of some traditional Italian wedding vows accompanied by the reading of specific articles from Italian Law about marriage and family.
At the very end of the civil bending will sign all the documentation to make it legal. The witnesses are asked to sign the documents too. Once that is all done you are officially married!
