Civil ceremonies in Italy

If you are looking for a civil ceremony on Italian Lakes we have many solutions to suggest!
Civil ceremonies in Italy can be performed in every town hall. Most of them are located in wonderful historical buildings in the very centre of the town, city or village you may choose for your Italian wedding.

Civil ceremonies usually last about 20 minutes. They are performed by local mayor or his/her delegate who speaks Italian. We are able to provide an official interpreter that will translate step by step all that celebrant will say.
There is a first part where civil code articles are red, then vows and the reading of the marriage deed. You will need at least two witnesses to the ceremony that could be your maid of honour, a bridesmaid a best man or even relatives or friends. At the end of the ceremony there will be the signature of the register and this will be the closing of the ceremony itself.

Your civil ceremony can be enriched and personalised with personal vows, poems, readings, music and even a blessing in some cases.
