The splendour of Florence is no more evident than in its amazing array of churches; their interiors elaborately decorated with frescoes and stained glass windows. If your dream is to get married in a Catholic wedding in Florence, we will design an unforgettable Catholic ceremony in one of the city’s majestic churches. While there are many churches throughout the city, only a few will allow foreigners to celebrate a Catholic wedding in Florence. One of these is a stone’s throw from the Arno River and is also one of the finer Catholic venues, built in Renaissance style with its famous Sassetti Chapel containing important works by Domenico Ghirlandaio and De La Robbia.
