“We work with all types of weddings, from people of all nationalities, people from all over the world.”

The ceremonies are held inside the basilica’s Choir Chapel.

But according to Regency, a company that has organized wedding there for more than 23 years, the process starts months and months in advanced. It starts by sending all proper documentation to the Vatican including baptism, confirmation documents and a letter signed by the couples bishop with the perspective wedding dates.

“A certificate and a letter from a bishop that you can get married so you have to be recommended from their church that they are a good couple.”

Then, the couple must also contact their respective consulate in Italy for more paperwork to legalize the marriage and sign a check made out to St. Peter’s Basilica for 270 euros.

St. Peter’s Basilica presides over weddings at 10:30 in the morning on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursday’s and Fridays. It could be a long tedious process, but some say the result is worthwhile

A magical wedding inside the Church’s most significant basilicas, an idea of the picture perfect wedding in the heart of Christianity.
