About

Giuliano is a celebrant who aims to offer, first and foremost, a service of beauty that starts from the lived experience of the couple and their love story.

It is love that must be told with all its facets. Therefore, it is necessary to understand the deepest desires and needs of the bride and groom-to-be in order to be able to create together with them a rite that comes closest to their mutual sensitivities and expectations. Couples who come to him are welcomed in a serene atmosphere of complete openness with deep respect; in a careful and sensitive listening about the story of the two future spouses.

Experience

Giuliano's profession as a celebrant, born in 1961, comes from a long way back. In fact, in the past he was a priest in the Catholic Church. Having left the priestly robes, the great and beautiful desire to be close to people's hearts remained with him. That is why he decided to put his experiential "know how" at the service of couples to offer a "place" where they can truly create a ceremony that is to all intents and purposes a celebration of the love that characterizes the bride and groom and as close as possible to their wishes.

Unlike his other colleagues Giuliano is one of the first humanistic celebrants in Italy, professionally certified, specializing in civil and symbolic weddings.

This European UNI certification guarantees his clients a high level of professionalism in the whole executive practice from the preparation to the realization of the ceremony, in all its parts. He has a degree in Theology from the Pontifical Lateran University in Rome and a Master's degree in Anthropology of first and second level acquired at the Theological Faculty of Palermo. He then attended various training and specialization courses in the wedding field.

Services offered

The basis of everything is the narration of the love that moved you to plan your future life together. The ceremony then will be dressed up on you by personalizing all the various moments that make it up and that will take cues from your love story. Giuliano will lend his voice, creating a welcoming and sharing atmosphere for what will be one of the most important moments of your life as a couple. Expressing your ideas and wishes these will be elaborated and put together, with great attention to detail, by the Celebrant thus succeeding in making your day special, leaving a romantic and meaningful memory for you and your guests. The symbolic characterizing rites that can be included in the ceremony will be useful to make visible and enrich the story of your love story.

These, in brief, are the services offered

- Civil wedding celebration

- Symbolic secular wedding celebration

- Christian symbolic-spiritual wedding celebration (without Mass)

- Anniversaries with renewal of wedding vows.

Celebrations have no limitation regarding straight or LGBTQ+ gender.

Method of work

An initial phone contact will be followed by an office appointment or video call to meet the bride and groom-to-be directly and to begin to understand the style to be given to the celebration to be held. This will be followed by sending a draft of the rite, which, after the necessary corrections, must then be confirmed. The rite can then be officiated at the location, time and manner most suitable for the bride and groom.

Giuliano can travel throughout Italy and even abroad and celebrate in both Italian and English languages.

Perfect for our intimate ceremony abroad!

Giuliano Bonelli is professional, attentive, responsive, and helpful. With much planning to do, he was kind enough to reach out many times to help keep us on track with the details of our ceremony. He even helped us to locate a photographer for no additional fee, and followed up with the photographer to confirm his attendance. He used personal information we emailed to him in his questionnaire to personalize our experience. For our small intimate ceremony, he was a perfect fit. A+
