Are same-sex marriages approved in Italy?

How many witnesses may we ask for our Italian wedding?
If you are getting married in Italy and having a civil ceremony, there will be a maximum of two official witnesses per couple. Of course you can ask for additional unofficial witnesses. For religious and symbolic rites more witnesses can be asked. In case of an elopement or a secret wedding we can also provide for witnesses.
Is it possible to have the wedding ceremony in the open air?
The symbolic ceremony can take place in a garden or wherever you wish. The civil ceremony is usually celebrated in the city halls. Although more and more civil weddings take place outdoors in selected venues. Such as castles with a pretty courtyard or in the gardens of historic villas with panoramic view. There are also some pretty town halls that have a pittoresque court yard. In some cases a religious marriage can also be performed outside, this usually depends on the pastor.
Does Con Amore also offer honeymoons?
No, but we can always provide you with suggestions for a nice holiday in Italy.
Can Con Amore arrange wine tastings, cooking lessons or other day activities?
Yes, our contacts with castles, agriturismi and private chefs make it possible to organize these extras for your wedding in Tuscany.
Is it possible to arrange children’s entertainment or babysitting?
If there are children at the wedding we can also provide creative children’s entertainment or a babysitter or babysitter.
Why would we contract a wedding planner?
