Step 2 - choose from a legal or a symbolic ceremony

Legal ceremonies in Sorrento take place in the Cloisters or Villa Fondi and in a few wedding venues which have been licenced.  You will be legally married following this ceremony which is recognised at home in England. Alternatively, you could opt for a symbolic ceremony, which can take place anywhere and is more personal in style. You would need to have a simple signing in England at your local registry office to legalise the marriage which costs.
