Catholic wedding

A moving catholic ceremony for an unforgettable wedding in Tuscany

Getting married with a catholic ceremony in Tuscany is a very special, unforgettable experience: the actual birthplace of Italian Renaissance, Tuscany still holds some of the most renowned and beloved artistic masterpieces created in this era. Some Tuscan churches are actual artistic and architectonic masterworks: often built on request of important members of the Tuscan nobility or rich and powerful merchants, these marvelous buildings and the pieces of art decorating them were usually commissioned as a means to show wealth and power. The beauty and historical importance of these splendid churches is such that most are considered part of the UNESCO World Heritage.

Only in the city of Florence about 100 churches can be found, and all Tuscan cities and towns are provided with lovely churches or cathedrals full of history and fascination, whose origin can sometimes even be linked to important and famous characters of Tuscan history, such as the Medici family or great Renaissance artists such as Leonardo da Vinci or Michelangelo. From the most imposing and history-full churches, such as the Florence Cathedral, or the Ognissanti church, decorated with the finest frescoes and the most excellent works of art, to the loveliest parish churches, surrounded by a bucolic setting of soft rolling hills as far as the eye can see, Tuscany really boasts some of the most beautiful churches for an unforgettable wedding ceremony!

In order to celebrate a catholic wedding in Italy you will need to collect specific paperwork and send it to the appointed Italian church authority within established deadlines. Your wedding planner will guide you throughout the planning process and stand by your side at every stage: we will provide you with a detailed schedule and paperwork lists as well as all act as intermediaries with the local Curia when needed.

Catholic weddings MUST always be performed in a Catholic church: while this might look like a limitation to your choice possibilities, Tuscany really has some of the most beautiful and special churches ever. Some historical locations (namely some villas or castles) even have a chapel on site, allowing you to celebrate your wedding in the same location where you will hold your wedding reception!

It is customary for Italian couples to celebrate the catholic ceremony together with the civil wedding, with a special ceremony where the priest also performs the civil wedding rites. Choosing this kind of wedding ceremony requires some more paperwork to be prepared for the civil wedding as well.

Some couples prefer not to perform the catholic ceremony jointly with the civil marriage: in this case, it is important to know that you will need to be already civilly married in order to get married with a catholic ceremony.

If one of the spouses is not catholic, provided you have the approval of your Parish Bishop in writing and that the other spouse is fully Catholic, it is possible to celebrate a mixed religion ceremony. It is however crucial that at least one of the spouses has all needed sacraments (baptism - first communion AND confirmation).

As far as the music ceremony is concerned, it is important to remember that only sacred or classical music is allowed as musical accompaniment for your wedding. Your wedding planner will help you choose the best musical pieces and most suitable musicians, according to your vision, preferences and expectations.
