Symbolic ceremony in Umbria, Italy (5)

If you don’t want to worry about completing documents for a civil or religious ceremony but still wish to have a romantic Italian ceremony this is the perfect choice.

A symbolic blessing is a very personal wedding ceremony which may be celebrated in the most amazing settings such as the outside garden of an Umbrian villa, a medieval courtyard,  under olive trees, in an Umbrian vineyard, within a beautiful Italian garden or wherever you like and it can follow traditional or non-traditional lines.

The ceremony is held by a celebrant who is not related to a religious structure as it’s purely symbolic and most of the time it’s the couple who writes their own text as you have the freedom to personalize the ceremony so that it reflects totally your beliefs and values; the ceremony could also be performed by a family member and it can include personal vows, poetry, songs, pagan or religious rituals.
