In Tuscany there are grand villas and castles where civil ceremonies are permitted and we maintain an up to date list of wedding venues for civil ceremonies.

Arriving in Italy for the wedding

If you are a non Italian national, you must arrive in Italy at least four working days prior to the wedding date in order to process your declaration of marriage. The administration surrounding the wedding is then arranged for you including the civil ceremony, documentation, an official interpreter, a wedding licence and wedding certificate, plus an international marriage certificate. A "certificate of no impediment" is not included. Please consult us for prices.

Catholic wedding planning in tuscany

For a Catholic wedding in the San Luchese Basilica, run by Franciscan Monks, a certificate is required from the pastor of the bride or groom.  The pastor will be able to tell the couple what is necessary, such as baptism and christening.  The certificate must bear the stamp of their bishop's office which will transmit the dossier to the San Lucchese Basilica. The local Italian pastor can then go to the curia of Siena, who will issue the permission to marry.

Although there is no fee for an Italian pastor, it is customary to make a donation of approximately 300 euro.  The marriage will also have civil validity.

Our team at CIT (Celebration in Tuscany) are specialists in planning weddings in Tuscany.
