In Italy, Civil weddings must be necessary performed in a Town Hall. Most Town Halls are located in beautiful historical buildings, in unique villas or grand palaces owned by the local government of the area.

Usually the civil wedding lasts from 20 to 30 minutes and it is performed by the Mayor or a Civil Registrar. The ceremony is conducted in Italian and translated to you in English by one of The Italian Wedding Event’s interpreters.

Depending on your wedding destination (every Municipality has different requirements) you are required to sign a Declaration of Intent to Marry (usually 2 days prior the wedding).

In case of a divorce woman or widow the Italian law does not allow to re-marry unless 300 days have elapsed from the date of the Decree Absolute or decease of the previous spouse. The documents mentioned above have to be supplied, if applicable.
