A wedding ceremony with Chateau and Villa Weddings is an exclusive, extravagant event designed specifically to fulfill the dreams you have about your special day. Each location offers a variety of wedding ceremonies including civil, symbolic, or religious ceremonies. Your personal wedding planner will discuss these options and provide information on local services and fees. Our most requested wedding ceremonies include Symbolic, Protestant, and Catholic wedding. Symbolic ceremonies are most common for destination wedding clients, wherein we provide all the necessary documents and legal contracts before your arrival, and an official or registrar is available for your ceremony. Protestant weddings are held within churches throughout the various regions of Europe, and Chateau and Villa Weddings will coordinate the presence of a pastor for your wedding ceremony. Catholic cathedrals and Abbeys are most prominent in Europe. Catholic wedding ceremonies are traditional, are ordained by a priest, and follow certain rituals. Please speak with your personal wedding coordinator regarding your personalized portion of a Catholic wedding ceremony. We do offer same-sex wedding ceremonies. Our highly trained personal wedding planners can offer you advice on current governmental laws and requirements for same-sex wedding ceremonies. Most requests we receive for same-sex wedding ceremonies are symbolic. Civil ceremonies are available, but also require a consultation with your personal wedding planner regarding residency requirements, passport and visa issues, and travel arrangements. Chateau and Villa Weddings is determined to accommodate all romantic couples wishing to commemorate their love. Your personal wedding planner will provide you full details regarding your wedding ceremony.
