Symbolic Rite

Union of love

Introduced in Italy in 2002, the symbolic rite was already practiced in a lot of non-Catholic countries of northern Europe (United Kingdom, Holland and Scandinavian countries).
It reflects the perfect choice for the spouses who want to confirm their union of love in front of their beloved ones and are often held in fabulous locations. Sometimes, whoever chooses this kind of service is already legally married and just wants to re-experience their big day in an outstanding scenario.
A symbolic ceremony is very personal and bespoke, designed uniquely for that bride and groom. It tells the guests about their love story and includes meaningful moments such as the reading of personal vows and the signing of the marriage certificate.
These celebrations, since have neither legal value nor are authorized by the Church, don’t have to follow any particular rule and the couple is free to tailor its structure according to their values and beliefs.

How to make a perfect wedding toast


25 July 2022

A Wedding toast typically ends a wedding speech and it is the moment when one member of the wedding party encourages the guests to raise their glasses to the happy couple and drink to their happiness, good health and future wealth.
There are many ways to set the tone of a toast: it could be funny or something more sentimental. In any case it is very important to start explaining the connection to the couple, maybe telling how you met for the first time and be charming and positive.
The perfect wedding toast is short and sweet, funny or meaningful, clear and always accompanied by some drink in your glass!
If the wedding toast is part of your speech you can start it saying: ‘Now ladies and gentlemen, please ensure your glasses are charged. Can I ask you all to raise a toast to the happy couple?’ This moment usually ends with wishing ‘to the bride and groom/happy couple/newlyweds’ the best for their future life as husband and wife.
