Weddings at the Vatican : General Wedding Info


Because of an increase in our parish responsibilities we are no longer accepting requests for weddings at St. Peter's Basilica.  We also do not have any information about weddings at the Church of Sant'Anna in Vatican City.

Many Catholics are interested in being married at St. Peter's Basilica. In the Vatican City State (i.e.: St. Peter's Basilica) the civil and religious processes used to be combined in one liturgy.  However, now Americans and other nationalities are required to be married civillly in their own countries before their religious wedding at St. Peter's.  Please note that you do not have to go through us to have a wedding at St. Peter's. If your priest lives in Rome, he can make the arrangements for you. However, many couples ask for our assistance, since either their priest lives outside of Italy, or they wish us to preside at their wedding.
