It is obligatory for non-italian speaking couples to have the services of an authorized interpreter
Civil ceremonies in Italy take place in the town hall, with an Italian official of the Comune and conducted in the Italian language. It is obligatory for non-italian speaking couples to have the services of an authorized interpreter. The interpreter will be known by the Comune and have registered their personal identity with the Comune. Many of our coordinators are authorized interpreters throughout most regions of Italy. This service can be booked as an extra if you just require an interpreter and not a co-ordinator on the day.
In 2013 for UK couples, the procedure for the documentation for UK couples changed, and part of the requirement is to have no impediment certificates translated officially into Italian, and then declared and sworn to be true in front of an Italian Justice of the Peace. Venice Events are pleased to offer this service to ensure all documentation is correctly presented to the town hall authorities. It is a responsibility we take seriously and extremely important.
Celebrants in Italy
Having a symbolic ceremony or a blessing, gives you more scope to have a very personal ceremony with a greater choice of location.
The celebrant is an intrinsic part of the ceremony and can prepare a meaningful and significant ceremony to suit the bride and groom. We have a choice of celebrants in most regions of Italy that conduct such a ceremony, very experienced people who understand the important of your ceremony (even if there is no legal marriage, although it is conducted as if it were)
Firstly, we listen to your story and get to know you, then work with you to prepare the finished ceremony and details. Over the years it has been a pleasure for us to get to know couples and be involved in creating their personal important ceremony. Celebrancy is an important role, and is undertaken with passion and heart.
