Some of the most beautiful and ancient churches in the world are right here, in Italy. The choice is endless: small and quaint parish churches lost in the countryside, enchanting medieval churches, marvelous Renaissance or Baroque churches, masterpieces in their own right, enhanced with statues, frescoes and reliefs.
To marry in a Catholic church you must: be single or have an annulment issued by the Sacred Roman Rota; present a Certificate of Baptism, First Communion and Confirmation; obtain permission from a Bishop; present a letter that states that you have fulfilled all the Pre Cana Classes; have at least one witness each.
Being a liturgical rite, a Catholic wedding follows traditional guidelines; the ceremony can be personalized for what concerns lectures and songs that you can choose with the priest and let them be read by your dear ones.
The religious ceremony can be celebrated in Italian or, with the aid of an interpreter, in other languages.
For the religious rite to be legally binding, several documents will have to be presented both in the institution of the country you come from, and at the City Hall of the city where the ceremony will take place. Within two months of the wedding these documents will have to be delivered to the Curia, which will validate them.
