Symbolic ceremonies are ceremonies with no legal or binding value that include personal non-religious elements, processionals, readings, vows, declarations of intent and rings exchanges.
Symbolic ceremonies are the right choice for those couples who prefer not to worry about completing documents for a civil or religious ceremony or for those who are already legally married.
Spouses can indeed take care of all the legal paperwork formalities at home or can get legally married in Italy by signing the papers at the local City Hall one or two days before the wedding.
Spouses have the freedom to personalize the ceremony in such a way that it completely reflects their values and beliefs. Symbolic ceremonies can be performed by a pastor, an Italian officer or a family member.
