Notes on  Weddings in This Region


 If you are not having a church wedding and since the mayors in Tuscany will not offer ceremonies outside of the town-hall,  we suggest you have a very informal, but legal, procedure at the local town-hall with just the couple,  Slow Dreams staff, and local witnesses present.   We can you drive there. 

The town-hall process would then be followed  by an outdoor ceremony (symbolic civil or religious) with full dress and guests present with officiate  (choice below in Table).    This approach allows a total focus on the outdoor ceremony - and saves the hassle of transporting guest around various locations.   This approach is especially desirable for venues where the couple and guests are staying. It makes for a more relaxed wedding in a beautiful setting.

Note: we have venues in other areas of Italy where the mayors will offer legal outdoor ceremonies at the venue of your choice.  Contact Us.
