If you're looking for a European destination at which to hold your wedding then why not consider Italy. Located in southern Europe this beautiful country is a melting pot of history, art, fashion and stunning scenery. With a mass of interesting and decorative churches in each city, as well as castles, villas, halls, and parks in which to exchange your vows, weddings abroad in Italy can satisfy even the most discerning of couples. Whether you want the towering Alps in the backdrop of your wedding photos, or you prefer a sea view, the choice is yours and there's plenty of venues that are able to help host your reception. With so many places to visit and activities to do, Italy is also an amazing location for a honeymoon too.
A couple wishing to marry in Italy first have to declare their intent at the marriage office of the district in which they want to get married. 4 days after this they are able to get married. The documents they both need to have with them are valid passports, proof of entry into Italy, full birth certificates as well as a certificate of No Impediment. They will also need an affidavit witnessed by 2 people, stating that they are single and, if they are divorced or widowed, certificates to this effect. All of the documents need to be translated into Italian and submitted to the Uffico Legalizzazioni for legalising, together with a tax stamp.
