ONLY Roman Catholic church weddings are legal and recognised in Italy (and elsewhere) and do not require a civil ceremony prior to the marriage. For all other denominations a civil ceremony is required to take place before any church ceremony or blessing for the marriage to be legal.
Couples should always check with us first that the church of their choice is available as permission always has to be obtained from the parish priest or bishop of the Italian diocese. SALVE UMBRIA
can arrange for an English, Roman Catholic, priest to conduct the wedding service.DOCUMENTATION SERVICE for CHURCH WEDDINGS SALVE UMBRIA
provides full assistance in obtaining all the necessary paperwork both in the home country and in Italy and the collection and handling of all legal documents required by the civil authorities and by the church authorities. SALVE UMBRIA
also provides an English mother tongue interpreter at the pre-wedding 'declaration' (of intent to marry).
