Andrea and Dan, and an intimate group of family and friends stayed almost a week in the heart of central Tuscany, and the delightful Villa Pandolfi.
They held a civil wedding in a local town hall. This type of ceremony really allows couples a huge degree of flexibility on the content and style of the event: readings can be included, exchanged of personal vows, exchange of rings, the bride can be given away.
And one of the important elements for couples attentive to the content of the wording is what is actually said to the couple – the laws they are getting married under. The main text reads:
By marrying, husband and wife acquire the same rights and undertake the same duties. Marriage imposes mutual duties of faithfulness, moral and material assistance, co-operation in the interest of the family and cohabitation. Both husband and wife each according to his (or her) own means and capacity in the professional or domestic field, must attend to the needs of the family.
Husband and wife, must agree upon the direction of their family life. The family residence will be established taking into account the requirements of the family. Both husband and wife have the power to put into action the direction they have agreed upon.
Marriage imposes on both spouses the obligation to support, teach and educate their children, taking into account the abilities, natural talents and aspirations of the children, themselves.
The couple write:
Thank you for the most fabulous wedding we could have possibly imagined! It really did exceed all our expectations. We cant thank you enough!
We loved the villa, the band, the food and all related services. Your attention to detail was superb! Please let us know if we can serve as a reference for you.
