What sort of wedding ceremony do you want?

01. Symbolic Ceremony

If you visualise yourself getting married on top of a mountain, in a vineyard, or on a cliff overlooking the sea, then you require a symbolic ceremony.

This type of marriage has no legality but will be an emotional and intimate experience that lends itself to excellent photos. The main advantage of a symbolic wedding is that it can take place anywhere.

02. Civil wedding Ceremony

If you require a legal wedding and want to have the documents, so that when you go home, you can prove you are married, then you need a civil wedding.

This usually takes place in a town hall, but there are also a few venues and villas that have agreements with their local authorities, and the mayor will come to the villa to perform your marriage.

If you want a Catholic or protestant wedding and want your marriage to be recognised back home, then you will also need to complete the procedure for a civil wedding. A religious wedding means that you are married in the eyes of God, but a civil wedding means that you are married by law.
