A SECULAR CEREMONY FOR A WEDDING
IN YOUR IMAGE
Secular ceremonies, also called symbolic or commitment ceremonies, are appealing to grooms and brides who want to organize an original wedding.

You can choose a neutral venue, brightened by a simple and sophisticated decoration. The perfect occasion to enjoy an unforgettable party with your guests in an astonishing and authentic venue in Corsica or Italy! However, be aware that a symbolic ceremony has no legal or religious (see our page about Catholic weddings) value although it is compatible with a civil wedding for example.

ITALY OR CORSICA?
Secular weddings are first and foremost an excellent alternative for brides and grooms from different religious backgrounds or who are atheists as well as for gay couples who can therefore benefit from an intimate moment that gives sense to their wedding. Indeed, a symbolic wedding gives couples the opportunity to create a customized ceremony that reflects their story. If they are willing to, the guests can become actors of the secular ceremony. They participate in this emotional moment by stepping in with nice words for the groom or amusing anecdotes about the bride. In addition, it is the occasion for the newlyweds to exchange wedding vows in a friendly and personal atmosphere during a beautiful ceremony.
WHERE TO CELEBRATE ONE’S SECULAR WEDDING

CIVIL CEREMONY: GET MARRIED IN THE NAME
OF THE LAW
Are you thinking of celebrating your wedding abroad? The civil wedding is the only ceremony that allows couples to be legally united. Thus, the civil ceremony is a celebration granted with a legal value. It usually takes place in the city hall of the future bride and groom's town of residence. However, if you are dreaming of something more exotic, it is possible for you to get married in civil law in Italy, without being a resident of the country nor having Italian citizenship! The conditions and formalities are rather simple. The couple to be wed has to obtain the certificate certifying its eligibility to marriage: the Nulla Osta. It is delivered by the consulate or embassy of your home country and is mandatory to legalize the celebration of your wedding in Italy.
