Different types of Wedding Ceremonies in Italy
Civil wedding ceremonies are performed in elegant wedding halls located throughout
the Veneto Region. These beautiful palaces and villas have been the official wedding halls throughout the centuries and are rich in atmosphere and elegance.
Catholic weddings can be celebrated only in consecrated churches by a Catholic priest. A civil and catholic marriage can be performed together if the couple wishes, or as an alternative, the priest can perform a Catholic blessing. In this latter case the couple must present a civil certificate showing that the legal portion has already been handled. In either situation the actual ceremony is identical.
There are Protestant churches and ministers in various parts of
Veneto. In some locations a civil and protestant marriage can be performed together but in the majority of churches only the Protestant blessing are done.
Jewish weddings are very special
when celebrated in the ancient synagogues of the old Jewish Ghettos
in Venice. If the couple
wishes to celebrate a Jewish ceremony at a private castle or villa, they
can bring over their own rabbi.
Orthodox ceremonies, Greek as well
as Russian and even Coptic can be celebrated only in
Venice where there's an important
