Getting married in Umbria & Tuscany


Tuscany (Toscana) and Umbria are wonderful places to hold your wedding ceremony, and we are glad to offer you our expertise in translating the ceremony for you and your guests.

According to the Italian law, translation for those who do not understand or speak Italian is a legal requirement that has always to be met (see here). Yes. I am a sworn certified translator and interpreter and I can help you juggling with the Italian bureaucracy, and giving your documents legal validity by translating them before the wedding ceremony. Normally your and your partner’s No Impediments to Marriage are to be legally translated, in order to file them with the Italian Anagrafe (Civil Register, i.e. our Registry of Vital Records and Statistics).


If you are planning to get married in Tuscany or Umbria, these amazing regions offer everything you are looking for. From small and quite hamlets to luxury venues, you will find plenty of different locations to host your wedding reception and marriage ceremony. Perugia, Gubbio, Spoleto, Florence/Firenze, Pisa, Livorno, Siena, just to name a few, are incredible places with distinguishing features that you won’t find anywhere else in the world.

For instance, you can decide to get married in the ‘town hall’ of Perugia (“Comune di Perugia”) right in front of the beautiful Fontana Maggiore. Or you can choose a tiny hamlet such as Assisi or San Miniato surrounded by lovely countryside (remember: Umbria and Tuscany are the ‘greenest’ regions in Italy, and they are called the “green heart” of Italy!).


July and August are generally the hottest months of the year, whilst January and February the coolest and rainiest. This does not mean it’s a bad idea to get married in those months (quite the opposite! The busiest months for us are July and August). It just means you need to choose the right location, providing you and your guests with a nice shade – either from the sun, or the rain. May and September have sunny days with lovely temperatures.

How to get there

Perugia has a small airport offering scheduled flight to a few cities in Europe. The closest international airports to the Umbria region are that of Florence and Rome (Firenze and Roma), offering both international and intercontinental flights. Florence is also a major airport in Tuscany, together with Pisa, which is also a busy airport with many cheap flights operated by low-cost companies, including RyanAir, Transavia, EasyJet and WizzAir.
