In 2016 the Italian government approved a law that allows same sex couples to form a Civil Union. Since then, Italy has become a more and more popular choice for unforgettable destination weddings.

The paperwork and documents needed for same sex weddings in Italy are the same as those for opposite sex weddings and the laws governing both types of marriage are the same throughout Italy. Civil Unions and weddings are both performed by the mayor or one of his/her deputies.

The celebrant will read the laws and the articles governing Civil Unions in Italy and the Certificate issued to you will be legally valid in your country. In addition, your ceremony can be enriched with an exchange of vows, readings and speeches.

Civil Unions in Italy are celebrated in historically notable and beautiful City or Town Halls, or in any other venue that the local government has approved for holding events.

Mediterranean Dream Weddings staff will guide you in choosing the best venue to meet your expectations and will ensure that professional and courteous staff are on hand to greet you at these venues for the utmost experience.
