Italy is the perfect place for your catholic wedding ceremony. Italy is the heart of the catholic church and has some of the most beautiful churches in the world.
Catholic wedding ceremony venues
From small little churches in the Italian countryside to imposing cathedrals, there is a perfect venue for your catholic wedding ceremony.
We have arranged some beautiful catholic weddings in Italy. One of our favourite churches is the Chiesa Della Certosa in Florence. Its stunning facade and baroque styling make it the perfect place to say your vows.
Furthermore, a real showstopper is a grand altar where you will say your sacred vows and commit your love to god.
Another one of our favourite churches is Santa Maria Novella. Most notably is the Renaissance facade, which has perfect geometry and is an architectural gem. As one of the most famous churches in Italy and founded in the 13th century, it is one of the most historical icons in Italy. Is there any better place for a catholic wedding ceremony?
