In Italy the Catholic marriage rite is also valid to full legal effect. Therefore, your Catholic wedding ceremony will be valid both in Italy and abroad.
If you have already been married in a civil ceremony, we can organise a Catholic ceremony without civil effect, on provision of the requisite documentation.
It is possible, on request, to decorate your chosen Catholic church in Ravello with beautiful floral arrangements and decorative elements to make your ceremony even more personal and romantic.
We recommend classical music during your ceremony to add an extra touch of magic and elegance to your Amalfi Coast Catholic wedding ceremony in Ravello.

The churches available for Catholic wedding ceremonies in Ravello are:
Ravello Cathedral - Duomo di Ravello
Ravello’s cathedral, or ‘Duomo di Ravello’, is the village’s most striking Catholic wedding venue.
The cathedral, which overlooks the main village square, was built in 1806 and is dedicated to the patron saint of Ravello and Venice, San Pantaleone.
Inside, the cathedral has a nave and two aisles and is very elegantly decorated with beautiful pieces of fine art and statuary. The church was originally bequeathed to the town by the 13th Century local nobleman, Niccolo Rufolo.
The magnificent marble pulpit, which dominates the interior of the church, was created by the great sculptor Bartolomeo.
The Duomo can be booked to celebrate Catholic weddings on any day of the week - including Saturdays and Sundays – and can host wedding groups of up to 200 people.
