Despite the fact that in Italy, only civil and Catholic ceremonies are considered to be legally binding, you can still get the Protestant ceremony of your dreams and have it become valid.
Keep in mind that in order to do that, you will need to have a civil ceremony beforehand. You must bring the wedding certificate with you, from Italy or wherever you performed that ceremony.
With that out of the way, you can proceed to have your Protestant blessing.
One of the advantages you have as a Protestant is that you are not tied to a church, because the ceremony is a blessing, so your pastor can make it basically anywhere you want.
You can still go to a church if you want to, because there are many Protestant churches all over Italy, especially in Florence and the Italian Riviera.
A good wedding planner and a Protestant pastor of your choosing can sort all that out and give you a magical ceremony outdoors, in a palace, or where you have decided to get married. For Protestants pertaining to the Church of England, it would be best to speak to the Anglican priest before, so you can see what your options are.
No matter your religion or that of your partner’s, Italy is a welcoming country that will accommodate your needs and that will offer you only the best and most romantic weddings.
Ceremonies will be performed in Italian, English, or other languages. In some cases, an official interpreter will be used.
