In only one page I can't explain all step by step for all countries of the world... But like your Italian Wedding Planner I can try to write about some one!
At this link you can find step by step: Getting married in Italy
The procedure now is very easy but there some little differences in case you:
- Live in the UK
- Come from England, Wales, Scotland, Channel Island, Isle of Man, North of Ireland
- National of you partner
- Opposite o same sex
In this example I supposed that both live in the UK: Getting married in Italy
- For both will need to get a certificate of no impediment (CNI) from the authorities in the UK to prove you're allowed to marry.
- While you're waiting for your CNI, you and your partner will need to make a statutory declaration before a solicitor or public notary. There's a standard form in English and Italian that you can download and use.
- You'll need to get your statutory declaration and CNI "legalised" by the Foreign & Commonwealth Office.
- Both can sign a proxy that permits me to book for you the Town Hall in Italy.
- Send me all the original docs and proxy by DHL or similar (NOT ROYAL MAIL, please). I will bring your CNI to the official translator to do a sworn translation at the Italian Courts. Usually the price for this service is 120,00 € for both CNI.
- You can send me the copy of your passports by email with the passport copies of your witnesses; in case you get married alone, will be me care bring the witnesses.
In some region, like Umbria, the Town Hall asks to the couple to go some days before the wedding, also the day before, to sign a final document. In Rome, this procedure is not requested. You can arrive also the day of the wedding :)

- Obtain the Atto Notorio from the Italian Consulate in the U.S. or in the country where do you live now. IMPORTANT: In case the Italian Consulate doesn't issue the doc, write me soon to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will fix a date to the Italian Court.
- I can fix a date also with the U.S. Embassy in Rome for the "Dichiarazione Giurata". You can fill the form but DON'T SIGN before to be in front of the Consul.
- Then I can go to legalize the Consul's signature to the Prefettura.
- With the proxy with your original signature, I can go to the Town Hall and book the hall for your wedding. I need also to have a copy of your passports and the copies of your witnesses' passports.
- Once married, obtain the Apostille on your marriage certificate.
I will write the others step by step also for the other countries: like Norway, Canada, Belgium and Lebanon. For the most of European Countries follow the procedure is faster: for them is requested only the "Capacità Matrimoniale".

Usually for the European the procedure is very easy!
IMPORTANT: If u decide to get married with a religious ceremony, it's necessary to do before a civil ceremony in your country (faster than do it in mine).
