Posted on September 28th, 2015 by Stefania Del Zotto

Hi everyone!
The ceremony is perhaps the most important part of a wedding. There are different kind of function, from the religious, the civil to the symbolic one.
Today we will share with you some of the most stunning churches from the North to the South of Italy. Having your wedding in an Italian church it does not mean always to have a religious ceremony. Some churches in fact are deconsecrated and this allows you the unique possibility to have a symbolic ceremony. If you wish to have your wedding in an Italian church, either if you desire to have a religious or a symbolic ceremony, we strongly advise you to check always with who manage the church, every single one has its own rules, that are not always compatible with your needs.
For more information check out this guide for all kinds of ceremony you could have for your wedding.
