Close your eyes and imagine yourself in the courtyard of a fairytale castle or the garden of a charming villa in Tuscany. Just you and your partner, exchanging vows and rings, among breathtaking sceneries with your loved ones nearby. What could be more romantic? That’s why more and more lovebirds choose a symbolic ceremony for their wedding in Italy.
Symbolic rites can be celebrated almost anywhere, so why not choose one of the many beautiful locations of Italy and organize your wedding there? You can say Yes outdoors, in the garden of magnificent villas or on a small pier in the Cinque Terre. You can also customize the symbolic ceremonies in detail, such as the length, the celebrant, the music, the setting and exact spot. Friends and families can actively contribute to the rite, reading letters, poems or personal messages to the bride and groom. Your celebrant might recommend the sand rite, as well as sealing a box with wine to open for the tenth wedding anniversary later on. The customizations are endless, and you can make the rite really yours. Moreover, you can organize everything in the same venue, both the ceremony and the reception. You can walk on your heels down the aisle and then enjoy the cocktail hour arm in arm with your husband and so live the Big Day in harmony with the people you love.
From a wedding photographer’s point of view, symbolic weddings mean natural and candid pictures in a good light. Forget the ugly, cold town halls and dark churches. Take the best from your wedding venue and convert it all into fabulous wedding photographs. Because after all, there is no better scenery than Italy where you can be portrayed with your husband and families.
