THE SYMBOLIC WEDDING: A TOUCHING CEREMONY
The symbolic ceremony was born as an alternative to the classic religious or civil ceremony and its demand is increasing in Italy for the following reasons:
- Priests are not allowed to celebrate weddings outside the consacrated Churches
- Mayors , or whoever takes their place, can celebrate the civil ceremony only at venues recognized as the Municipal House.
The rules in both cases are very strict and the space for customisation is limited.
The symbolic wedding is the best choice for those who dream of an outdoor ritual: by the lake, in the mountains, by the sea, in a garden or in a forest. It is the ideal ceremony for those who love nature and unspoiled landscapes to set an unforgettable ritual. Everything could be done in a symbolic ceremony. Every place could be chosen as the perfect venue for it.
What is a symbolic rite exactly?
It is the celebration of the union between two people who love each other. The ritual can be entirely tailored and the text can be personalized. It can take place everywhere and is generally officiated by a professional celebrant.
In this kind of ceremony the union of a couple is witnessed by all the guests. It is a touching ceremony in the script, in the lyrics as well as in the wedding vows that the couple will exchange.
Couples who choose the symbolic ceremony have sometimes already married in the town hall where they live so that the legal part of the marriage has already been fulfilled. In this way they are officially united according to the law of their country. So, the ceremony, that is the truest part of their wedding in which friends and relatives participate, is celebrated in their favourite venue. The symbolic ceremony gives a lot of choice and is very involving for the couple and and for all their loved ones.
