Legal side of things
As we state on our website, our ceremonies are purely symbolic, meaning that they have no legal value. The idea here is that due to heavy paperwork, rules and translations issues in a foreign country, we suggest to couples to have the paperwork done at home and come to Europe to celebrate fully their love. Our specialty is the celebration of love, but not the paperwork. You can see Pierre explaining this in this video.
Luckily, Italy is the only country in Europe, where you could have your civil ceremony done. A specialist, not included in our packages, will work out all the paperwork for you as well as all the admin and the translation + book the city hall. The costs of that is 4,000 euros for downtown Rome, Florence or Venice. Would you wish a civil ceremony just outside the city (Rome/Florence/Venice), in a beautiful village in the outskirts, the cost of that drops down to an average of 2,500 euros, depending on the location. Those prices include all translations of paperwork done, all interactions with you, all the interactions with your embassy, all the interaction with the city hall + the booking of the city hall for the legal ceremony + the booking of the mayor + the interpreter during the ceremony. Please, bear in mind this process takes an average of 3 months. No short cut there.
Would you wish to go that route, we could put you in touch directly with the person in charge. Please, bear in mind, legal ceremonies are not directly related to our business: our packages are completely a different thing, but of course, you can have both: a legal ceremony at the city hall and then a symbolic one with Love Gracefully to fully celebrate your love.
