Before you decide to hire our services consider whether we are the right Celebrants for YOU..
For us Celebrancy is an important role and is more of a passion than an activity of work. Every blessing is a precious memory and it is important to us that couples are happy.
In order for your wedding day to be a truly memorable occasion the ceremony itself is of vital importance. If the ceremony is meaningless or poorly executed the celebration afterwards will be just another party… If you place importance on being married in a meaningful way then it is crucial to think about the content and structure with due care and attention.
We pride ourselves on composing and delivering thoughtful and tasteful ceremonies. We feel that a ceremony should be performed with elegance and style. If our ethos sounds attractive then we could be the perfect celebrants for you.
If however, you are only having a ceremony to please others then you can always invite a friend or family member to perform it for you…. at least it’s free!
There are an increasing number of individuals, in Italy especially, who are prepared to offer a service based on little experience and no training and often with questionable diction and attention to professional detail. As in any market it pays to research your Celebrant thoroughly before making a decision. We are talking about one of the most important and memorable days of your lives and so it is crucial to ask pertinent questions, check reviews and if need be ask the Celebrant for email contacts of past clients to gain an independent valuation of their service.
Blessings From Italy is a Registered Company and not a speculative or recruitment agency.. We would never trust inexperienced and untrained individuals with your wedding ceremony… When you choose us.. it’s US!
We are not in the business of delegating third parties, who have little experience and no training.
The guarantee we offer you is our professionalism and vast experience based on relevant training. We have officiated many types of ceremonies both of a religious and spiritual/romantic nature.
There is a huge difference between a celebrant who has 10 years theological training, 12 years experience officiating over three thousands weddings and someone who buys a qualification on line.
Celebrancy for us is a vocation and not one to be taken lightly. Although a ceremony may not have religious validity or be legally binding, the responsibility to maintain a certain level of dignity and diplomacy is fundamental. Civil ceremonies are also possible and can be held in combination with a blessing ceremony in agreement with the ‘comune’ (Town Hall) in question.
We specialise in inter-faith ceremonies and know far too well that a deep understanding and sensitivity is required in order to avoid upsetting couples and their families. Feedback has been enormously positive and we have been told that the day couples were dreading due to a difference of faith, culture and tradition actually resulted in a more beautiful and profound experience.
We are a husband and wife team with vast business experience. We have raised three children and therefore have plentiful experience concerning family matters and personal relationships, which enable us to empathise with others.
We began performing as Celebrants in 2004 and have since created and conducted hundreds of ceremonies throughout Italy and elsewhere in Europe.
We have worked hard to earn our reputation as professional and dedicated Officiants with a unique but much imitated style.
Giuseppe Rossi attended theological training at the Vatican and is also a certified member of the Association of Independent Celebrants.
Diane Rossi is an English Literature Graduate, with past experience in teaching and film and is a trained and certified member of the AOIC. She is also listed as an International Celebrant.
Together, we work as an Anglo/Italian team, scripting original ceremonies that capture the essence of a couple’s unique relationship. We have the humility to realise that we can always improve our service.
We therefore constantly research established traditions and adapt and create innovative ideas to distinguish ourselves within the world of Celebrancy.
If you desire due time and attention dedicated to your needs and a ceremony which accurately reflects you as a COUPLE then we may be the right Celebrants for you!
