Marriage license, Wedding


Ready to start planning your wedding in Italy? Take a moment to double check you have everything you need to get legally married in Italy. No matter what your nationality is, you and your loved one need to make sure you are bringing with you these three important documents:

  • Passports
  • Certificate of No Impediment
  • Nulla Osta

The exact procedure to follow for a legally binding ceremony depends on your nationality. We will guide you step-by-step through the process of obtaining the documentation you need to get legally married here in Italy.

Keep in mind that the paperwork requirements have an expiration time of three months. Another important thing to remember is that your full name has to be written in exactly the same way in all the above documents. Your documents could display different names if you have more surnames and they are not all listed on every document, or if the future bride has been married before and still has the name of the ex-husband. In any case, make sure your passports, Certificate of No Impediment and Nulla Osta contain your full names, otherwise you will find problems in Italy and you paperwork will not be accepted by the wedding officials.
