We also offer deluxe packages with additional benefits - ask one of our experts for more information.
Any extras that you would want to book to enhance your special day. This would include flowers, a photographer, make up, music to accompany the ceremony and a reception. These can all be organised by your wedding planner in Italy.
The cost will differ depending on the time of day, day of the week and where in Italy you are getting married.
You will book the wedding package with one of our Italy Experts. Once the booking is confirmed, you will be given the contact details of a dedicated wedding planner in resort. You can liaise with them to organise all the elements of your wedding - from flowers to the evening reception. Our weddings team here in the UK can help you with any questions and queries you may have about documents, logistics and legal requirements.
We recommend you book your holiday and the wedding ceremony no later than 12 weeks prior to departure. This will then give us enough time to organise all the necessary legal documentation for you.
A deposit needs to taken for the wedding ceremony at the time of booking; this will be in addition to the deposit required for the holiday.
For all direct bookings made, the remaining balance on your Citalia holiday will be required 12 weeks prior to travel.
The bride must travel under her maiden name for the entirety of the journey because the name on the flight tickets MUST be the same as their passport. Once the bride has returned home, she will then be able to change the name on her passport.
You can renew your vows in the beautiful locations of Sorrento, Amalfi, Ravello, Positano, Venice, Lake Como and Lake Garda. The renewal of vows are not legally binding so the only information you will be required to provide us with will be the details of your original wedding, including dates, names, and location.
Yes, we can book you a short break so you can visit/inspect the area you have chosen for your wedding. Civil ceremony venues in Italy are open to the public so you will be able to visit the place where you will be exchanging your vows.
Your wedding planner will be very happy to meet you and guide you through all the processes of getting married in Italy and all the details of your big day, face to face. There is a charge for this service, which is then refundable or can be applied to locally booked extras once your wedding booking is confirmed.
In Sorrento, civil weddings can be performed Monday to Friday between the hours of 10:00 and 13:00 and on Tuesdays and Thursdays between 15:30 and 17:30. For out-of-hours ceremonies (subject to availability) at the town hall, there is a supplement. In Lake Garda we offer weddings Monday to Friday, and subject to a supplement we can also arrange out of hours weddings (evenings and weekends) at all locations. Please call for the latest availability and prices.
Unfortunately weddings cannot take place in any of our hotels, but many of our hotels would be very happy to accommodate a private dinner or reception after the ceremony.
The ceremony will be conducted by a local registrar, and you will be required to have at least two witnesses attend during the ceremony. The witnesses can travel out as friends/family but if this is not possible it is fine for the couple to ask someone in Italy to be a witness once they arrive.
Witnesses can be provided at a charge.
Yes, the wedding co-ordinator will translate the ceremony for you. The ceremony lasts approximately 20 minutes.
If you choose to wear traditional bride/groom wear or just smart wear, we suggest lightweight fabric to avoid getting too hot in the warm sunny climate of Italy (especially in high season).
You will be required to send the following documentation to us no later than 10 weeks prior to departure. Documentation required:
** Your Certificate of Non-Impediment and Statutory Declaration will both need to be sent to the FCO legalisation office to be legalised before you send them to us. You will receive instructions for how to do this in your documentation paperwork.
