Civil Wedding Tuscany

The importance and the value of government institutions are fundamental for every democratic country. For this reason, civil weddings are one of the most chosen and appreciated rites in Tuscany. In the majesty of giant town halls, or in the garden of the most beautiful villas, it’s always touching to hear the words of the Italian Constitution.

Not to mention the vast variety of locations where it might take place: old buildings, villas, sites of historical significance and much more. Imagine your photos taken into town halls dated back to the medieval era or the Renaissance, but also on the beach or in the park. This and much more is offered by choice of the civil ritual: impossible not to consider it! Be guided by a wedding photographer to discover the best locations for civil weddings in Tuscany.

Here are some readings (plus beautiful pics) you might enjoy:
