WHEN TO GO
Italy’s Tuscany region is beautiful in all four seasons, however many venues and hotels close during the winter months for yearly refurbishment works when tourism is particularly low. The spring months during April-May can offer pleasant temperatures in the low 20’s, blue skies and bountiful spring blooms, but rainy days are also inevitable. The summer months of June-August bring long hot summer days and warm evenings, perfect for al fresco dining. The autumn is the perfect time to host an intimate dinner celebration by open fires and views across the vineyards with their turning gold and red leaves.

The following information is for guidance purposes only and will differ according to your nationality. To legally wed in Italy you will need to contact the local comune (town hall) before making any plans to find out about local marriage laws, including what documents you’ll need. You will need to get a certificate of no impediment (CNI) from the authorities in the UK to prove you’re allowed to marry. Your partner will need to follow the same process to get their own CNI. You can normally get a CNI by giving a notice of marriage at your local register office or registrar in the UK. A CNI issued in England, Wales or Northern Ireland is valid for 6 months. A CNI issued in Scotland is valid for 3 months. They’ll post your notice, and as long as nobody has registered an objection after a specified number of days (normally 15 or 21), they’ll issue your CNI.
While you’re waiting for your CNI, you and your partner will need to make a statutory declaration before a solicitor or public notary. The Italian authorities will need this in addition to your CNI.
You’ll need to get your statutory declaration and CNI ‘legalised’ (certified as genuine) by the Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO). You’ll also need to get your CNI translated and sworn before the Italian courts or an Italian Justice of the Peace.
The names on all documents you provide must appear exactly as they do on your passports - if not, the authorities may refuse to allow the marriage to go ahead. You may need to provide evidence if the name on your passport is different to your birth certificate (eg marriage certificate or deed poll).
You can deposit your marriage certificate at the General Register Office (GRO) in the UK for safe-keeping after your wedding - this isn’t a legal requirement. Check with the commune to see if they can issue a multilingual marriage certificate for you after the ceremony. If not, the certificate will have to be translated into English.
Please note that same sex civil unions are now recognised in Italy but do not hold equal status to marriage.
