Churches for a marriage in Orvieto, your “I do” in a special village

Churches for a marriage in Umbria, Santa Maria Assunta in Allerona
You can find a little jewel in the wonderful landscape that surrounds Spao Borgo San Pietro. Namely, the Church of Santa Maria Assunta in Allerona, with its marvellous alabaster glass windows and the luxuriously decorated apse. This beautiful historical building set in the village of Allerona allows people to easily reach Spao Borgo San Pietro to celebrate and to discover also the architectural splendour of Umbrian villages which are less visited by mass tourism.
Getting married in Assisi, between mysticism and beauty
Getting married in the Church of Saint Francis of Assisi is a daydream. This religious complex is probably the most majestic icon not just for Umbria, but for all Italy. The Franciscan Order, which the most loved and visited building of Assisi is based on, influences the style that ceremonies have as they get to be celebrated in it, depriving them of the “too-much mood” and keeping just the essentiality: the love between those who decide to exchange their wedding vows inside its walls.
There are rules to abide by if you wish to get married in the Church of Assisi, which are well explained on the Assisi’s Archdiocese website. Not just mere aesthetic interest for one of the most beautiful places in Italy, but also devotion must be pivotal to those who choose this Church as the place where to exchange their vows before The Lord.
There are other beautiful places to get married in in Assisi, like the equally famous and loved Church of Santa Chiara, the fantastic Cathedral of San Rufino and the Church of Santa Maria Maggiore, which is one of the most ancient of the city.
Churches for a wedding in Perugia and its province
Among all the churches for a wedding in Perugia, the Church of Ss. Severo and Agata, with its ancient and suggestive origins, shines bright. You will find some valuable examples of historical and religious buildings in what is known as the street of the 12 Churches. One of them is the church entitled to the Madonna della Luce, which is perfect to visit during a tour of the city’s jewels.
The church of San Pietro in Perugia is a highly fascinating Benidictine Abbey, with its cloister and its bell tower decorating its walls.
But for you who desire to celebrate your wedding Umbria absorbed in the territory, we suggest the artistic marvels of Todi and Foligno, in the province of Perugia. Santa Maria della Consolazione in Todi is a Temple located outside the city walls; the Cathedral of San Feliciano in Foligno is one of the most representative churches, with its crucifix dating back to the XVth century and the timeless atmosphere that lingers in the building.
Another unavoidable stop during the tour of Umbria for those who are looking for the perfect church for their wedding is Gubbio and its truly representative Cathedral of Sant’Eubaldo, enriched with works of art and spectacular glass windows.
