Getting married in Italy

Paperwork and documents for civil weddings in Italy

Marriage laws in Italy require couples to provide proper documents which should be handed to the local authorities.

Procedures are updated constantly and each nationality follows a different one so it is very important you collect correct and most recent information which sometime may be annoying or time consuming to obtain. Make sure you always refer to the Italian consulate in your country or to your local consulate here in Italy: British nationals can refer to the British Consulate in Italy (for the procedure check out our paperwork for Bristish citizens post), Irish will contact the Irish consulate in Rome, USA citizens need to get in touch to provide further information before knowing who to contact.

In case you don’t want to stress yourself with nightmare procedures we are happy to support you through our paperwork assistance package; we will provide all the information required to start collecting marriage documents for Italian weddings along with shipping addresses and contact details. We are also available to physically accompany you to the related office once in Italy to complete the procedure if necessary or collect the documents on your behalf, handing them out to the office in charge.

After the wedding we will deliver you copies of your Italian wedding certificate in order for you to be able to register the wedding in your country.

Civil weddings in Italy are performed in town hall properties which are often rented as reception venues too.
