When it comes to plan Indian destination weddings, most couples don’t think about having a civil destination wedding too. They usually have their civil legal wedding home, whether it’s the UK or the US, with a small group of relatives, just to celebrate this legal part, often considered less important for a destination ceremony. And then have their Indian wedding in another country… but why is that? Because they think it’s too complicated and that a civil ceremony abroad may not have legal validity in their country. But they couldn’t be more WRONG!

Regardless the nationality and religious faith, foreign citizens can get married in Italy as there is no legal residence requirement for a legally binding marriage; but, of course, they will need some mandatory documents in order to get married. Therefore, the civil marriage ceremony in Italy is absolutely legally valid in foreign countries. And, to make your life easier, we take care of all the bureaucratic procedures, handle the arrangements with the local authorities and find the civil officiant, so that you won’t have to worry about a thing!
