catholic WEDDINGS IN ITALY
Wedding Requirements for Catholic Weddings in Italy (all nationalities)
You will need to see your local parish priest to get his permission to marry abroad. You will then be given a religious no impediment certificate. In addition, you will be probably required to attend a premarital course at your church, however your priest will inform you of exactly how to proceed. List of documents:
- Certificate of Baptism
- Certificate of Confirmation
- Religious no impediment certificate
These documents, together with all those required for the civil ceremony, need to be sent to our office no later than 8 weeks prior the wedding date; this will be processed with the Local Church in Italy by our wedding planner.
Some local Parishes in Italy don’t allow catholic weddings for non-residents. You will be advised by your Wedding Planner on the exact steps that need to be followed and local religious permits.
