The ceremony takes places in the town hall of Venice, in the Palazzo Cavalli
, a magnificent historic palace of the fourteenth century. It is composed of three levels in Renaissance style, it occupies a privileged position on the grand canal and offers a spectacular view on the Rialto bridge.
An elected municipal will celebrate the marriage. Venice-etc offers an interpreter for the entire duration of the ceremony. The ceremony lasts about 30 minutes, with the possibility to opt for an internet broadcast so your parents and friends can be directly present in the wedding thanks to a webcam in the room (or until six months after the wedding).
It is possible to personalize your ceremony with floral decorations and music of your choice.
At the end of the ceremony, the wedding hall along with its balcony offers a magnificent setting for some photographs.
Venice has more than 200 churches of different styles and eras – real architectural and artistic masterpieces. If you wish to unite religiously, Venice-etc will offer you a large choice of churches adapted to the wedding that you imagine: a small church for an intimate wedding, or a more majestic venue for larger celebrations.
To marry religiously in Venice, you must firstly meet the minister of your place of residence; it is he who will gather all the necessary documentation and with whom you will carry out the marriage preparation. Venice-etc will then connect you with the Venice curia along with the minister who will celebrate your wedding.
Together, we will prepare a personalized ceremony with the biblical texts you will have chosen, the songs and musical accompaniment. We will create the atmosphere that corresponds to you to make your union a magical moment around your faith.
