Giuseppe and Diane created a wonderful ceremony for us in Rome, Italy and we will never forget the beautiful words which were said and all the emotions it brought out in us!Sent on 05/27/2019
My husband (Roberto) and I required a bilingual ceremony as my family and I are English and my husband's are Italian, it was important for us to include both languages and customs on our wedding day. Giuseppe blended the two languages just perfectly during the ceremony and it was a very happy balance between the two. All our guests were amazed by his skills and ability to create this beautiful multicultural and bilingual wedding ceremony. A few of our guests asked for his contact details immediately! He also helped my husband to organise logistics on the wedding day, he worked well together with the photographers, the DJ and the singer/violinist who was performing. We had a last minute change of the ceremony location due to a forecast of rain, Giuseppe helped Roberto during this time and ensured everything ran smoothly, calming my husband's nerves too! We were in safe hands. The ceremony was extremely emotive for us as it was so personalised and unique, using the answers to the questionnaire we had both completed privately, many of our friends and family were in tears throughout! We didn't need a rehearsal or to see the script, we heard the words for the first time and this meant it was all the more special. The meaningful marriage certificate we were presented on the day was also just stunning, we will treasure this forever.
From the first contact we made, Giuseppe was efficient, responsive and professional. We had a couple of video calls via Skype leading up to the wedding day. The first one was an initial consultation and discussion, and it was clear that Giuseppe was genuine and heartfelt in his philosophy around his role in the wedding. We had some interesting discussions and he reassured us many times, not pressuring us at all. We then completed the forms on the 'Planning pod', this was worthwhile and meaningful, yet it was a big task and it did require us a few sessions to sit down and complete. We had a final Skype call closer to our wedding date to discuss our ceremony further and finalise some finer details. As we were planning our entire wedding in Italy from the UK we needed the right person who we could trust to conduct a beautiful ceremony. I completely recommend booking Giuseppe and Diane to conduct a wedding ceremony for you in Italy, particularly if you require a multicultural ceremony. Their knowledge of different cultures, religions, literature and history is very vast.
Definitely 5 stars!
Thanks once again.

Blessings from Italy is simply the best of the best, a master of their craft!
From our first call with Giuseppe and Diane of Blessings from Italy we were blown away! Blessings from Italy is simply the best of the best, a master of their craft. Their professionalism and passion for what they do is next to none. They treat each wedding as if it was their own. Blessings from Italy does a phenomenal job at using prose to bring to life the bride and groom’s unique love story. Our ceremony was completely tailored to us and one of a kind.Sent on 11/12/2019
It was unlike any ceremony we, or any of our guests have ever experienced. I was so impressed with all the information they sent to us after our initial call. They took note of all the ideas that we mentioned during our call, and gave us so many suggestions and options to choose from, to completely customize our ceremony. My husband and I really enjoyed answering their questionnaire and selecting the elements for our ceremony that resonated with us. Hearing Diane’s beautiful prose and interpretation of these words and our love story during the ceremony, was something we will both never forget. It was without a doubt the most special part of the day for us! When Diane paid tribute to our beloved grandmothers, who are no longer with us, the sun shone down brightly on us, and it truly felt like they were there with us. The ceremony was so touching and poignant, it was all everyone could talk about during the cocktail hour at our reception. It has left a lasting impression on us and all of our guests. Thank you Blessings from Italy, from the bottom of our hearts, for creating memories that we will cherish forever! We would not hesitate to recommend Blessings from Italy to anyone! Love, Warren & Monica

Giuseppe and Diane made our wedding ceremony a very special experience. He did a fantastic job and truly captured the essence of our relationship and hopes for each other and our marriage. I received so many compliments about how the service made it very clear that Giuseppe knew both my husband and myself and that his words really resonated with our guests. I appreciated the careful time he spent getting to know us and what we wanted from the ceremony. They are extremely professional and are very kind people. I highly recommend his services to anyone getting married.Sent on 11/14/2019
Working with Blessings from Italy was a great experience. Our main goal is to communicate the emotions and feelings experienced by the couple on their wedding day through the medium of video. Diane and Giuseppe really helped us to create one of our favourite videos, which is also one of the most emotional. They gave us plenty of great material which we used to create a magical atmosphere… and not only by the beauty of their words but also through the vehicle of their souls. We appreciated their professionalism and because we are sensitive people too we share their passion for emotion! They have huge respect, love and sensitivity for the work they do. If you are looking for Celebrants who possess deep values and are empathetic to a high degree you will certainly never forget the celebration of your love if you hire them to immortalize your special day.
I had the pleasure to work with Diane from "Blessings from Italy" and to me she's definetely one the best celebrants I've ever encoutered. Her celebration was poetic and truly told the story of the couple, everybody (me included) was moved by her words. I recommend "Blessings from Italy" if you want the most important moment of your life to be unforgettable and just perfect!
Very high level service with genuine care for their clients. I love to work with Blessing from Italy's team. Giuseppe and Diane are two lovely and well prepared persons that loves their job and do it with passion. Strong recommended. Matteo
