Finally, gay and lesbian couples can legally contract civil unions in Italy, and at Passaggi we are very excited to be on the cusp of this historic turning point and to celebrate gay and lesbian weddings!

We, as independent celebrants, are thrilled to be able to help you transform a legal act in the City Offices into the wedding you’ve always wanted. We can celebrate the wedding of your dreams in a fun or upbeat way on the beach, in a garden, in a villa, or wherever your fancy takes you, and help you formulate your vows following your heart rather than the law.

When we decided to celebrate our civil union we wanted something simple, but thanks to Sarah and Clarissa’s help we ended up having an amazing wedding that went beyond our expectations. (Stefania, bride, Paestum)



After an initial no-obligation meeting, in person or over Skype, to discuss your ideas and air suggestions, the celebrant and the couple would enter into a contract and work together to plan a personalised and meaningful celebration, in close contact with your wedding planner if you have decided to work with one. We will work on the script of the ceremony and submit it for approval and continue to work on it until you are completely satisfied that it reflects your dreams and wishes. We will also discuss and include your choices for readings and music.

On the day of the wedding, we will arrive early to meet you and go over last minute details, greet your family and guests and conduct the entire ceremony. We are able to conduct the entire ceremony in Italian, English, or both simultaneously if you have international guests.


Couples who decide to use a celebrant find the event uplifting and enjoy the control it gives them over the style and content of the celebration.  Our commitment is to give form and ritual meaning to your promises.
