Large Civil Ceremonies

I just finished my first year collaborating with the city of Pisa and I have to say, I'm impressed. The people of Pisa City Hall have been incredibly welcoming in opening up their city to foreigners wishing to hold a civil ceremony. For the past few years, I've always had a hard time finding the right venue for people who have large groups of 60 or more and yet want a civil ceremony with a solid plan B. Then I was lucky enough to meet the Registrar at Pisa City Hall. She introduced me to a fabulous 12th century Romanesque church just inside the city walls. This church was de-consacrated and taken over by the city of Pisa. They now use it to hold art exhibits and occasionally, they also hold civil ceremonies there. The church is all stone, spacious and bright with clean, simple lines. It has 14 pews seating 70-80 people, depending on how close you seat them. Better still, if you have say 100- 120 people, the city will rent you extra chairs at a reasonable fee and bring them in for you on the day, to accommodate your guests. At the moment, they only do weddings the second Saturday and Sunday of every month, but I'm hoping that they start to increase the frequency.

If you are a bride with a large wedding party, searching for the perfect rain-proof ceremony space to hold your wedding, write to me about this special venue.
