    Highly recommend! Excellent in all ways

    Many wedding ceremonies are impersonal and standardised. This is however definitely not the case if you choose Diane. Warm, loving, attentive and with a genuine interest in getting to know you as a couple she curates a beautiful ceremony that meets your believes and wishes. Not only that, she even went beyond what we expected and dreamt off. Getting married in beautiful Tuscany the scene is set. It is already romantic. Could a ceremony make it even more romantic? For us, the answer was definitely yes! Diane spoke so beautifully and directly to us as a couple. It is a ceremony not only we will never forget, but all of our friends and family as well.

    We can highly recommend Diane to anyone getting married in Tuscany. Such a beautiful person and respectful and professional to the bone who will guide you through the whole ceremony. Should we ever renew our wedding woes we will definitely ask Diane to be there!

    A beautiful, heartfelt, personalised ceremony we will truley never forget

    From the bottom of our hearts thankyou to Giuseppe and Diana for creating the most beautiful, heartfelt and personalised ceremony for myself and my partners wedding celebration in Borgo Di Tragliata. Giuseppe, my partners exact words where 'i felt like he really knew us' and that is a testiment to the time and care you took in allowing us to celebrate what finding your soulmate and life partner means to us. Every word spoken was spoken with love and both us and our family have never smiled or cried (tears of joy) so much. The level of professionalism was also expert and we cannot reccomend you and the amazing service you offer enough. It really was something special.

    Everything we wanted!

    Diane and Giuseppe were absolutely amazing through every step in the process. Planning a destination wedding (we're in Colorado and planned the wedding in Italy) in the middle of a global pandemic was no easy task. But they made it as smooth as possible by reassuring us about contingency planning in case of illness, walking us through the steps of the ceremony, and providing plenty of source material to make it our special day. They even had us take an easy survey that they used to craft a special message during the ceremony. We felt very comfortable throughout the planning and day of and can't thank them enough!

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!
