Destination Weddings in Vicenza
One of the greatest architects of all time, Andrea Palladio, lived and worked in the beautiful and ancient town of Vicenza, in the Veneto Province. More than ten of the towntown public buildings, including the exquisite town hall, were designed by Palladio in the 1500s.
The town hall where your civil wedding will take place is an exquisite work of art, designed by one of the greatest architects of all time.
The town itself is an artistic masterpiece and couples from all over the world flock to this beautiful area of Italy for their weddings. Your civil wedding will be held in the fabulous Town Hall which Andrea Palladio himself totally redesigned more than 400 years ago. Inside the town hall you will find some of the greatest frescoes ever painted by Palladio himself and others trained by him.
It is probable that the Mayor of Vicenza himself will officiate at your ceremony!
Your wedding ceremony will likely be conducted by the Mayor of Vicenza himself. The bride and groom will be permitted to read some of their own vows and even encouraged to read poetry to each other. Flowers and music are permitted; a civil ceremony in Italy is a much more elaborate and memorable ceremony than a civil ceremony in most parts of the United States and Canada. The ceremony will be in Italian with a translator for non-Italians.
There are dozens of exquisite Catholic Churches for your religious wedding following your civil ceremony.
Once your civil ceremony is concluded, your wedding planner will be able to make arrangements for your lavish Catholic wedding in one of the many beautiful and ancient churches which dot the town. Some Catholic services may be performed in English.
