ABOUT

The First Glance

Named one of the trendiest Italian wedding venues by the Brides Magazine and a dream home by Forbes, Bloomberg and the telegraph, this is a truly unique destination. With its unmatched natural beauty and views across the Mediterranean, the villa is so gorgeous it’ll be hard to tear yourself away! This venue was built by Lord William Waldorf Astor in 1905 and has attracted illustrious guests, such as Princess Margaret and Sofia Loren.

We recommend to host your ceremony in the splendid garden at the back of the house where a Dominican monastery once stood. This lush 20,000m2 botanical garden surrounded by palm trees and dotted with ancient artefacts excavated from Pompeii. Say your “I Do’s” in front of a 270 degree panoramic view of the Bay of Naples and Mount Vesuvius. For your dinner celebrations, choose from a tropical al fresco setting under the stars or inside of the many salons. A heavenly setting for romance and celebration.

Inside, the property has been decorated by fine objects from Sotheby’s and Christie’s. Imagine fine Italian marble, ancient columns and a museum worthy collection of Greek and Roman antiques, that once belonged to Lord Astor himself. The villa has previously hosted 200+ weddings.

What kind of wedding can I have in Italy?

+

2. Religious Ceremony. Performed by the local priest in a church setting and does not require a civil ceremony beforehand. Either you or your partner (or both) must be a Catholic and neither of you can be divorced.

The quickest and easiest approach for a wedding abroad is to have the legal ceremony in your country of residence and fly to Italy for the celebrations and host a “symbolic-style” ceremony.

However, if you would like to process the legal paperwork in Italy, you will need to be slightly more organised (or get support from a local planner!). For Europeans and UK citizens, it is often recommended to contact the local Italian town hall 6-12 months before your ideal wedding date to find out about local civil partnership laws, including what documents you and your partner will need .

Typically, you must bring the “Certificate of Non Impediment” and “Statutory Declaration” translated in Italian and legalised with a Hague Apostille in the UK. Once you have decided your wedding date and venue, email these documents to the venue owner, wedding planner or go directly to the local town hall in Italy to register your civil partnership. The local town hall with arrange for the local mayor or representative to conduct a 20 minute ceremony for you in Italian. This is often held in the Town Hall or in a villa with a wedding permit.

You are required to have 2 witnesses and 1 interpreter during the ceremony. At the end of the ceremony, you will sign the Ceremony Act which is translated into multiple languages and recognised as a legal wedding certificate all over the world. Once you are back in your country of residence, you may bring this to your local council to have it registered as well.
